We have both visited this restaurant and ordered catering for special occasions. The food is always delicious, the restaurant is nicely decorated and the staff is very friendly and efficient. We usually don't go out for this type of food since my Mom is an excellent cook, but when she is not in the kitchen we go to La Esquina... More

When we were in Miami, this was a must so my husband could have la caja china pig. Went there on Saturday night, and it was sold out. So, we had their Tacos De Lechn Al Carbn and the El famoso Pan Con Lechn, with moro rice and plantains. There was more food than we could eat and all great,... More

Great strip mall joint, with the plus of being the BEST Cuban Sandwich in around Miami - needless to say Miami being the meca of competitive Cuban Cuisine.

My wife and I tried this place and it was fantastic. Only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is because the waitress was terrible. Not the food though. Pan con lechon sandwich was great. Chicharones were great. Tres leches was fantastic. Can't wait to go back.

We just got here right after a funeral. It's a Latin thing. I'll follow up in a little bit. It came highly recommended. Let's see if it's true

Well situated place in the center of Doral. The food is very good, fresh, delicious and doesnt take long. The prices are decent and for all that yummy food is well worth it. The staff is very welcoming and polite. Went there with my family for dinner and had a great time.Will definitely return.

I've been to this restaurant several times with friends who work in the area. For the most part, the food is good and I will agree with some of the other reviews that the portions are generous. And I will agree that during lunch this place is packed. But then again, most restaurants in Miami are at lunchtime. As I... More

This is authentic Columbian food! They even bring out pork rinds to every table. Everything here is excellent! Portions are more than generous. This place is standing room only during lunchtime! So get there early!.

This was the third time we have lunch at this place. On certain days of the week they cook the hog in Caja China (Translated as Chinese Box although of Cuban origen). The pig was tender, moist and very tasty, although tending towards cochinillo in taste more than a traditional Cuban Puerco Asado. The Chicharrones were to die for. The... More
