The Lawrenceville Papi's is as close to home cooked Cuban meal as you're going to get in the Atlanta metro area. We've been to other Cuban restaurants in Atlanta and they aren't nearly as good (this is as of... More

This is a fun place to eat and gives you the sense of caribbean cuisine. The waitstaff are pleasant and will engage in conversation if you like. I travel to the Caribbean for business and Papi's get's fairly close to the real thing.

Went for lunch and as usual the food was good. The portions are large. By the time my wife and i finished eating we realized we should have only ordered one meal. We order the same thing (Jerk Chicken Wrap) and both of us had half of the wrap left over.
