Eat This Food. Drink This Coffee.

I visit the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area about once per year, and my biggest complaint has always been the lack of food quality. Some of the worst meals I've ever had have been in Gatlinburg, so anytime we visit we usually cook all of our meals. As we came into town this week I spotted Smokies... read more

Super nice employees and awesome food. So happy we found this place. So good we will probably go again before we leave town. Cuban and Fries super good. I also had the meat and cheese empanadas. Don't pass this one up!!

I grew up South Florida area near Miami where there were many Cuban restaurants. This one is up to par with the menu and flavor. I always like to compare the Cuban sandwiches and the yuca con mojo. Here in Pigeon Forge felt like being in Miami again.

My Cuban husband & I have been visiting this tiny restaurant for several years. It's one of the places we enjoy most when we visit Pigeon Forge each year. They seem to do a lot of take-out service, but if you can get a seat at one of the few tables, relax and enjoy the authentic atmosphere. It's at the... More

We have been visiting this city for years and just found this little place. Our friends told us about it. We only had lunch but I will have breakfast there next time. I had a Cuban sandwich that I had to take half with me it was so large. It was delicious. Good selection and prices are very reasonable.

Yep! I was blown away by this little cafe. We had the Cuban, roast pork, and croquette sandwiches as well as the empanadas. The Cuban coffee is just like it should be: strong, sweet, and in porcelain espresso cups. It is a bit small and can get busy in lunch time, so a little patience may be necessary and visit... More

This restaurant is in a strip mall. Food is good but the service is terrible. After they bring the food the server never comes back. The management is poor at best.

We wanted to have our custom Noche Buena dinner so we decided to give this place a try. We are so glad we did!!!! We ordered the moros, lechon, yuca and platanitos. Everything was delicious, just like the food we enjoy in Miami! What a blessing to have found them, we will definetely stop by when we visit again!! Thank... More
