Perfect Cuban

The Cuban and medianoche sandwiches are our favorites, but don't miss the black beans and yellow rice, or the ropa vieja with a side of plantains.

Had breakfast there with family recently. Good egg sandwiches and coffee! We didn't feel we had to rush; we had time to enjoy family time.

Cuban sandwiches are great, but our favorite is the media noche with black beans and yellow rice. For a change-up, I love the fish with plantains, but all of their food is tasty and fresh.

They are very consistent, pulled pork tons of flavor, plantains done perfectly. Yuka is great. They give you tons of food for a great price.

We drove by here after riding bikes at Alafia and decided to give it a try. It's a small unimposing place tucked away in the corner of a strip mall. There is indoor and outdoor seating. The menu on the wall is impossible to read, but they also have menu cards near the cash register. The server behind the counter... More

We recently moved to the area and this is near our house. We have gotten takeout quite a few times. It is always delicious. Cuban food was new to us because they didn't really have it in Colorado where we moved from. They are very helpful when we ask questions and are trying to decide what we want. The staff... More
