Not fancy but very good.

The food and service was very good and a good value. I had the taco salad and sangria and both were great. It is a casual family place. We would definitely go back.

It was great! I walked down from my hotel after a long day of work. I had pork cooked with onions & peppers in a habenaro marinade (I forget the name), black beans and rice, sweet plantains. I had a Cuban espresso while I was waiting and it was awesome! The guava cheesecake and tres leches looked delicious but I... More

My friends and i went here to get some of our authentic cuban dishes fixed. We enjoyed the famous chicharon as well as the lechon. However, it could've been more crunchier. The skin was a little hard to crack. Their sauces and condiments really complement the fried pork and chicken. Everything was really tasty. Staff was really great and friendly.

We are staying in Doral and were looking for some cuisine more local and authentic. Several people at the hotel, as well as some cab drivers and Trip Advisor reviewers, recommended La Esquina del Lechon, so we decided to check it out. I'm so glad we did! Everything we ordered was delicious. Full of flavor and so enjoyable! The bread... More

Had a long meeting and this place came recommended from local customers of mine. For being 3:00pm in the day, it was packed and very busy. Service was prompt and courteous and kept refreshments full while we waited for the entrees to arrive. The pork dish was amazing that I had along with the side dishes of rice and beans.... More

Went for lunch and was expecting an awesome pork sandwich, what a mistake. Coming from spanish heritage I know what a good pork sandwich should taste like. No flavor what so ever, never again.

My company catered from this place a couple of months ago, the food was Delightful.......great presentation and awesome flavor. I have also visited the Doral location for lunch and the staff is friendly and service is good, BUT lunchtime is very busy but WORTH waiting for food. I love everything they make, roasted pork, vaca frita with moros and maduros.......Yummy!... More

My wife and I ate dinner there recently. We found the food to be excellent and a great value for the money. We ordered the tres leche cake for dessert and it was spectacular -- one of the best we ever had anywhere.

This place was highly recommended, so we decided to try it out and I have to say that we were not disappointed. The Pan con Lechon is delicious. We also tried Pork Chunks and they were very well cooked and seasoned. Tip: We went for dinner and although the meal was not expensive, my friend advised that it's cheaper and... More
