Ok food, BAD operating system!!

This place wasn't as good as I expected. To start off, when you enter the place no one greets you. There is no sign instructing you to seat yourself. Once we got ourselves to a table, i saw two waitresses just talking,.. mean while me and my husband have yet been greeted. Nearly 10 minutes later... read more

My family and I went here for our first time on Valentine's Day 2015. We were in Atlanta for a concert and found this wonderful gem. My wife had the Rey's Cuban and I had Papi's sandwich. Amazing! The service was good. The only thing nwgative was that it was very small and congested. It was manageable though. The food... More

I've been to the best Cuban places in Miami, Boston, New York. But never expected to find a such an excellent food, service, and prices in Atlanta. The services was prompt, we were even told what they didn't have ahead of time. The food was great, highly recommended.

This is a pretty small nondescript restaurant right across the street from Mary Mac's Tea Room, but it is a beauty. I have had lunch here at least 10 times and dinner a couple of times. The food is fantastic and the service is friendly and attentive. I wish that I could give a more comprehensive review of the menu,... More

Our daughter and husband took us there because they knew we liked Hispanic food. We all ordered their Cuban sandwiche and their were absolutely the BEST we have ever eaten, bar none. Served on a nice roll with huge portions of pork and ham and a savory sauce. Only our son-in-law was able to finish the whole sandwich and the... More

The bar side plays salsa, merengue, etc. I ordered the chicken dinner with beans and a salad. I also ordered a soursop (guanabana) milkshake. The chicken was... More

We usually go to the restaurant in Stockbridge, but the downtown Atlanta one is fabulous as well. Never had a bad meal. Nice people, good choices, reasonable prices. Our favorite place for Cuban dishes.
