The sandwiches are very good. You won't find a better Cuban sandwich. The service was also very good. The owner was very friendly and entertaining.

The food was really authentic Cuban food. The best we've had since we left Florida. The owner was really attentive and friendly while giving us perfect service. A definite must if you're in Spartanburg.

Everything is full of flavor. Fried plantains and beef tamale were incredible. Spicy pork was full of flavors and very tender. Loved it!!

It is possible to eat good Cuban food in Spartanburg. I have been to this place twice, once for dinner and once for lunch. Really enjoyed this place. Great service and really good food.

Just get anything off of this menu and you'll see why this is the best. You might wonder "How in the world is a sandwich shop the best restaurant in Spartanburg?!" It's because these simple sandwiches are created so well. Everything from the cubano to the Reuben is awesome. Carribean Sweetness just does this simple yet amazing task perfectly.

The pulled pork sandwich is off the charts good. They have specials that come with a couple of sides. Ask the owner and he will point you in the right direction every time. The Cuban coffee is a treat. Not too sweet......just enough. The portions are large and the prices reasonable. Everything is homemade.

Simply outstanding! We were greeted very pleasantly and asked to sit wherever we wanted to. Service remained friendly and prompt. I had an absolutely wonderful Cuban coffee to start with. My husband had the spicy pork and while I grew up on North Carolina pulled pork, this spicy pork dish was every bit as good. I had the Cuban sandwich... More

Ate here the first time tonight. It was amazing! I had the salsa chicken, rice, black beans, and a tamale. It was all excellent. I think the tamale was my favorite. My husband had the Cuban sandwich. It was perfectly grilled, meat was delicious! Service was very fast. The owner waited on us, great service. Although I don't have a... More

The wife and I had our second chance to visit Spartanburg's hidden Cuban gem. The wife had the Cuban sandwich with chips and I let the owner bring me his choice. He provided me with salsa chicken, black beans and rice and plantains. I also enjoyed an ice cold Kalik. Second visit same as the first, everything was fantastic. The... More
