“Terrible Restaurant”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2012 via mobile

First of all, this is not Gloria Estefan's "Larios". This is "Casa Lario's", nothing to do with Gloria. This is probably one of the few reasons people vist this place. The only other good thing about the place is the location and the atmosphere of the general area. They have outdoor seating which is nice. Beyond that the place is horrible. I'm Cuban and a local and I've probably eaten in most Cuban restaurants in this town and this by far has been the worst. I ordered the breaded steak, this is one of my favorites. The steak had so much grease on it I could not eat it. I'm not much for returning food to the kitchen cause I figure if you couldn't get it right the first time you probably won't get it right the second time either. So I just took off the breading and ate the steak without it. My wife ordered a croqueta preparada sandwich and it looked like it was on a diet (weak). My kids had palomilla steak with fries. Fries were also very greasy couldn't let them eat them. All of our food was bad not just one dish. Service, terrible. Food took extremely long. When the food finally arrived we questioned the waiter about the sandwich on slim fast and he casually responed with an "it is what it is" attitude. When they were not actually serving the customers they would all group together in the back giggling with each other. I felt like I was bothering my waiter by calling him from the group to serve me more water. Bad experience won't be going back to this place again.

“Classic cuban... best mojitos around”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2011

I was introduced to Larios during a business event but have since gone back on personal and subsequent business travel. Someone once told me they had the best mojito's and I truly can not disagree. The skirt steak is classic, always cooked perfectly. Perfect paired with the plantanes.

“Great cortadito and empanadas!! Stop at least for cuban coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

Casa Larios has an outdoor patio, with great breakfasts at a great price.... It also serves to go... or to have a quick coffee. Try a cortadito, and the empanadas.... It has parking.
