I had been wanting to try the Mambo Grill after speaking with several friends. Found myself in Salisbury this morning and even though it was early (11:00 AM) I ordered the "Tropical Sampler" Lots of delicious bites especially the "Mini Yucca Temptation" on my plate. Outstanding ! I'll definitely go back. The chance to eat authenic Cuban is limited to... More

At the recommendation of the server, I enjoyed the Temptacion Ropa Vieja and Crema Catalana. Delicious meal, great atmosphere, it appears not many people have discovered this gem, or perhaps it was because it was early Wednesday evening. I'll be returning! :)

The food is amazing and the staff are very friendly. When we go we get the churasco skirt steak and every time it is just as delicious as before. We also get the fried plantains. We have had other dishes as well but that it by far our favorite. We go with family a lot too. Never have been disappointed,... More

My wife and I had dinner with two of our grandchildren. It is crowded but the atmosphere is great. You need a reservation. They have a unique menu and all of our meals were great. Staff was very nice. Not a romantic place but with two teenage granddaughters it was a lot of fun.

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
