I've been to Mojitos twice in the last year--really enjoy it! Love the Cubano sandwich! And the spicy mojito!

My husband and I stopped by during a night trip we took to Columbia from augusta and we wanted to find something close to our hotel. Mojito's was walking distance. We tried the signature mojito and the blackberry * I highly recommend that one * and they were both awesome, very fresh and authentic. I had a French dip sandwich... More

We've walked right by Mojito's Tropical Cafe for years. It's in the Vista and surrounded by other restaurants whose signage draws your attention far more than the modest neon sign announcing Mojito's presence.. We'll overlook it no more! I am no authority on island food but everything our party of three had was very tasty including the signature cocktail. Service,... More

This small Cafe really does have great mojitos. If you are like me and you occasionally enjoy a mojito you will like a visit here. However they are a little pricey but most mixed drinks out are that way.

I always consult TripAdvisor when out of town and found Mojito's highly rated. When I started eating my lunch, I understood why. Oh my! I had the pulled pork tacos and they were off the hook. In fact everything on the plate was some of the best food I have ever eaten. There was even one thing, I think was... More

The food was delicious and I give it a 5/5! Very pleased to find Cuban food in the Columbia area. However, the service was not very good,I'd give that a 2/5. Asked to have extra maduros instead of the yucca. When the server brought it out, she said she she forgot to put no yucca, but that I still received... More

So glad I found Mojito's! Very relaxed informal atmosphere. Get the French Dip sandwich! I can't wait to go back. Everything was good. Oh and the Mojito's live up to the name. Went on a Friday night and didn't have any trouble getting in and out with no wait. This would be my weekly spot if it were in my... More
