At first, I thought I had just lucked out because the food here was so good. Last week was my fourth trip to this place; three dinners and one lunch. I have not been disappointed yet.

Went there on a Friday night with a bottle of wine and had a great time. Started off with the ceviche and then had the lechon which was outstanding. My fiancé had the ox tail which was also wonderful. Finished off with the tres leche and left completely happy. Don't miss this place!!

This Cuban spot has a great combination of good food and great atmosphere. The owner Benny always comes out and greets the diners if he is there. The food and service is very good as well as the prices. This is the perfect date night spot!!

We've been going here for some time and we are never disappointed. Ben the owner makes it his business to great everyone after they have received their order. BYOB is a huge plus saves on high priced drinks.! Having been to higher priced restaurants you can't beat their prices and authentic varieties of food. If your in the area don't... More

We tried Casual Habana for the first time and were very glad that we did. The place is warm and welcoming as is the staff. The food was delicious. There were four of us and we all enjoyed our food. We will definitely be going back again.

We have been here twice in less than a month after stumbling on it one night. Food is reliable good. Great prices. Friendly service. Very good to our children. Owner couldn't have been nicer. A MUST try. Everything we have had was delicious.
