State of the Art Pork Dishes

If you like to eat pork. Do not look too much around for it. This is the place !!! Great location, atmosphere, service, and food. Just try any dish which includes pork.

Just your average pork sandwich, not the best in Miami, large portions for the right price but nothing to bragg about.

Me and my family love this place, the food is really good, but they close to early on the weekends which is very bad for business, because after 8 is when you wanted to go out for dinner on a Friday night , usually.

My husband and I had a great dinner last night at this place. We ordered the "jar" of sangria which was a huge carafe, more than enough for both of us. We then got the sampler appetizer that included fried cheese, pork rinds, chorizo, small fried potato pancakes...it was an excellent sample plater of their specialities. It was hard to... More

I've read the review about La Esquina del lechon for roughly a year now and finally timed it out perfectly to go for lunch while I was heading back home from work in the Gables. You have to go on a thursday or saturday or sunday to get the lechon cooked in the caja china. This was a thursday. Appearance:... More

So when in Rome, do as the Romans. We had a pork sandwich...the seasoning was so delightful nothing else was needed. But as we looked on the table we spotted barbecue sauces guava based and spicy smoke. We could not resist and went for the guava sauce...ohhhh so good. It's a substantial sandwich so come hungry to this place. And... More

I visited this place twice. They probably have the best "lechon" in Miami. The Venezuelan arepas are not that great. Service is good. Place is very clean. Breakfast menu has lots of choices. No healthy food.

The service was excellent. We got the pork sandwich, appetizer platter, Cuban sandwich, and ribs. We really liked the Cuban sandwich, ribs, and fried cheese. Pork rinds were not my favorite, a little too crisp for my taste. Authentic and delicious, I would go back if in the area.

Good Latin food and pork. If you are looking for roast pork and a very good Latin food in the area, this is the place. The Desserts were my favorite part, especially the guava cheesecake. Good amount of serving. They also have good wines .

Stopped in for lunch with some coworkers. Had the Famoso sandwich. Pork was melt in your mouth. Cuban bread is great. Service is great and attentive. Be prepared to wait at lunch time, but well worth the wait.
