At least 5 times while we were eating, I heard, "This is delicious". The roast pork was moist, succulent and delicious. The black beans had great flavor without being over salted. The cuban sandwich comes in three different sizes. The flan was real cuban style. They even make guava pastries. The topper of the meal was the REAL cuban coffee.... More

After picking up my younger son, ten, from camp, we stopped in for a late lunch. My other son was with us; he is eleven. The boys were ready for an adventure, having never eaten at a Cuban restaurant before. We were the only customers since it was after 3pm for lunch. We were greeted by the family matriarch. As...

The Best Cuban & Picidillo Sandwich around! We've been frequently this spot for over four years now! Stop in, you won't be disappointed! Aroma Cafe is one of our neighborhoods Best Kept Secrets! It's not hard to find right off Pellissippi Pkwy toward Maryville, one mile down on the right on Broadway Ave. Enjoy!

My brother and his girlfriend highly recommend this place and i agree. The cuban sandwich was great, as were the sweet plantains we ordered on the side. It's a small neighborhood place, but they have a pleasant side dining room with booth seating that was fine for lunch. The owner was really helpful, and I will certainly ask to come... More

A quick TA search brought us to this very casual little place. Who would have thought we would love cuban food outside of Florida. The cuban sandwiches had the most tender pork! And the best mojo dipping sauce too. Bread was authentic and sandwiches were pressed perfectly. There was a little delay in getting our food out to us, so... More

I was pretty skeptical to try this place even though friends raved about it. The exterior is a little sketchy at best, but I took their advice and tried it. The food was really good, although I'm not a fan of getting can sodas to drink since I do drink a lot. Nonetheless, good food...poor atmosphere. It's literally a hole... More

When my wife and I happen to be in Maryville, we always try to stop at Aroma's. They make what I think is the best Cuban sandwich (the Tony Montana). A big meal that my wife can share. I also usually order the papa rellena which is mashed potato stuffed with ground beef, breaded and fried. Yum!!! Once you've tried... More

Great Cuban sandwich! Best one I've had in East Tennessee. The maduros and tostones (fried plantains) were excellent. Can't wait to go back and try other things on the menu. Very friendly service.
