After checking this location again on Trip Advisor for an up coming trip to Bradenton in the future and seeing that the reviews are still quite bad in general I thought I would and my experience. My first and only time was mid January of this year, 2014. Like many I went here because of the DD&D episode. I went... More

Most authentic, best tasting Cuban sandwich around. Eat this with their black bean soup and you will want to return many times over! Reasonable, terrific, and attentive service. No negatives from my point of view.

I have been in Florida for a couple months working and I have had one Cuban Sandwich which did not impress me at all for a resturant on the beach. A friend invited me to go to Jose's with her and it was the best and hugest cuban or any other sandwich I have had since I have been here.... More

We were really looking forward to eating at this restaurant. Upon arriving the first thing you notice is the smell. I didn't go looking for them but it was obviously a dirty bathroom that greeted us at the door. As we sat at the bar to order our food, one of the staff came out to mop the kitchen floor.... More

We had seen this restaurant many times, seen the Triple D show and read the positive reviews on TA, but I would not recommend this establishment based on our first experience. We like dives, and locally owned business, but this place was past the dive stage. While visiting in August, there was no air conditioning, one bathroom was overflowing and... More

Food was ok but not as great as SE of the reviews. I thought the place was a little dirty. Staff was nice and you got a lot of food for the money.

Loved this hole-in-the-wall place! Jose was a very hospitable host. Portions were huge and yummy! The pork was out of this world! Highly recommend trying it.
