Yum!

We've had Cuban food in Key West and Miami which are as close to authentic as it gets. The food here is better than either of those locations. The Cuban sandwich, beans and plantains are delicious!

I think the Cuban sandwich here couldn't be beat even in Cuba. It is so delicious and big enough for leftovers (for most of us). The people who own Aroma Café are very nice. It's always fun to go here.

This is my favorite place to eat in Maryville and I always try to stop here when I'm in town. Make sure to get the Cuban sandwich and try one of the authentic sodas they have in stock.

Upon walking in the cafe, we were wafted with such a delicious smell of peppers, cumin, and the like. The name is fitting for this joint. Had The Cuban sandwich-portion was huge!- with a side of red beans and rice. Delicious dipping sauce accompanied the sandwich. Would visit again if in the area.

We stop here everytime we are in the area. The food is delicious. I am a picky eater and I eat EVERYTHING on their pork plate, pork, beans and rice. The seasonings are different than anywhere else. We call ahead and get our meals to go. The portions are so big we end up getting more than one meal out... More

I had the Picadillo sandwich with black beans and rice. My friend had the Cuban sandwich and black beans with rice. We both very impressed with the taste because they were so good. Neither of us wanted any dessert because we were full.

We stop in to eat here all the time. The food is terrific. The people are so friendly. While you wait you can relax and play a game of dominos in true Cubian style! Always a great place to stop for lunch!

Finally made a stop here and it was a good stop. The large cuban sandwich was huge, more than enough for two. And the flavor was outstanding. Sliced ham and marinated pulled pork was a little different, but really good. The bread was toasted just right and not dry. It was the black beans-rice bowl, however, that stole the şhow.... More

Our visit begin by trying to find a parking space in the small lot. We parked nearby and would have walked a mile for the delicious meal! It was our first visit there. We had read other reviews recommending the Cuban sandwich combo with a side of red beans and rice. The man taking our order was very helpful. He... More
