We are not super familiar with all Cuban foods, but had some in Miami over the years. This place did it so well, and we had so many different taste selections! Do try things you have never had, and let your taste buds light up! As others have said, the rice and beans are great, as well as the plantains.... More

We met friends at this restaurant for lunch. The food was fantastic! The children and adults alike took home leftovers, plentiful enough for an entire second meal! I had the classic Cuban sandwich with beans and rice. The sandwich was huge and delicious! I will try to get back there again. As we were waiting for our food, everyone's eyes... More

Pap's food is delicious. This could easily become a weekly hangout for me! They have certain plates for each day of the week as well as additional items you can order on any day. They also have a full bar. The service is great, food is ready really quickly but tastes very fresh. And is pretty cheap for the large... More

We were greeted as we walked in and encouraged to select seating of our choice. It was lunchtime and busy with a diverse clientele but we found good seats. My nephew ate but we only wanted to have drinks. I don't know where he puts all the food but he clearly enjoyed it and says it was good. The portions... More

The food at Papi's Cuban & Caribbean Grill is absolutely fantastic, as well as the drinks. I highly recommend the margaritas. Everything on the menu is great, however the service here needs work. We stood at the front door for about 10 minutes waiting on a table. The waitresses passing by us never said a word to us. When a... More

Apparently, this place is no secret! We had to wait about 10 minutes for lunch on a Wednesday. Once seated, it took a little while for our server to get to us but not due to a lack of trying. The place was totally packed (and loud). Our server was very friendly and helpful in pointing out a couple alternatives.... More

At Papi's you can get a platter of Cuban cuisine for around $10. I got ropa vieja and my boyfriend got the steak. Both were served with rice, beans, bread, salad, and plantains. It is a great deal! I also got one of their mixed drinks and was not impressed. My boyfriend and I sat at the bar and saw... More
