The food here is excellent and very consistent. Prices are very fair. I love the Churasco Steak. The Vaca Frita is also wonderful. The fried plantains are yummy. I can honestly say I've never had a bad meal there. Service can be a little slow when it's busy. I recommend making reservations on the weekend. The club next door (same... More

Super good Cuban food, service couldn't be better, portions are more than I (should) eat. Prices are a little on the high side but not crazy, but for this type of food it's to be expected. It's off the beaten path, which is unfortunate as so many more people would know about it if it were more visible. Find it... More

I think I would go EVERYDAY if I could! A great family run business with amazing, authentic, high quality, reasonably priced food. We couldn't decide what to order so we got a little of this and that. Nothing disappointed. The Snow Shrimp and empanadas are a must try!! The waitress made us feel like family! Will definitely revisit soon

Finally go to go to try this place and it was well worth the trip! The food was oustanding - I had the Hemingway cocktail that was pretty good along with appetizers and the Churrasco steak that was made to perfection! Can't wait to go back. Also can't believe the location in a little town but the place was full... More

Eaten here several times, it's very consistent...the food is great and the service is slow. They just never seem to streamline the service. Because of this, Reservations are highly recommended. If you have to wait, check out the lounge next door, it's very good. Mambo grill is not a place where you grab a quick bite. Come when you have... More
