Genuine Cuban/Puerto Rican food!

If you know anything about genuine Cuban and Puerto Rican food, you will not have to be convinced that this place is nirvana. A little pricey, but well worth it for great food. We sat outside, and, despite very warm weather, were very comfortable due to the strategically placed fans. The only... read more

I thought I would try some Cuban food that wasn't a Cuban sandwich. The Thursday special (roasted pork) was recommended for that purpose. More than plenty of food for one person to eat. But honestly I didn't find the roasted pork to have much flavor. Perhaps Cuban food is more bland that I'm used to. Otherwise the restaurant was clean... More

This was our second visit here and we haven't been disappointed. Its like walking into a relatives home, welcoming and comfortable. The staff is warm and friendly. Unlike most American restaurants, our waiter let us sit and enjoy without interruption or rushing. The food was very good. We settled on 2 specialties and were stuffed when we left. Pork was...

The food was quite good for the kind of place it is. The servings are very generous. The service was also good. The patio is pleasant, but it looks out of the drive-thru line of the burger joint next door.

Finally a restaurant called Papi's that has true cuban food, drinks and atmosphere many "cuban" restaurants claim to have however fail to produce. Best cuban coffee i have found since leaving Miami!

This food is amazing. You get very large portions. Flavor is incredibly rich. Services were great. The bartender had perfect service skills. Will visit again when we're in the area.

Went to lunch with a friend to discover the dishes at this Cuban/Caribbean restaurant. I had a shrimp and white rice meal with tostones and salad. The meal was awesome and very reasonable. Also the service was super quick. Sweet plantains for an appetizer were great too.

Being a Midwesterner, I never had the opportunity to try Cuban food before. Went to Papi's and it was amazing. I had the paella and it was so good! Will definitely try more Cuban/Latin food now.

I took some people there for lunch and we were very happy with the meal. The food was good ( not truly Cuban spicy) but good never the less. The Cuban sandwich was a pleaser as was the pork. They have spice you can request. I will go back for the jerk!! The place looks like it's here to stay.... More

After reading the reviews, I really expected to enjoy this place. I didn't. App and meal served at same time. Pork was dry, congris was stiff. Good: draft beer was very large and cold.
