“Sad lunch story”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Had lunch there today...the servers were actually running....media noche sandwich was dry, black beans obviously heated out of a can without any spices; and when clearing the finsihed plates the server spilled half the food onto my dining companion becuase he was in such a hurry. At the register a different server literally threw a ticket holder towards the stack near my arm and hit me instead and said "oops". Bad food, poor service, nothing to redeem itself.

“Local Cuban food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013 via mobile

I wouldn't go back. I have been twice and it failed both times. At breakfast they served an English muffin that was burned black but still served it. At lunch the Cuban bread was not fresh. Skip this place.

“Best breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

I'm not local, so I've only been there twice. I had their breakfast special. It's the best! Scramble eggs and Cuban bread are fantastic. Coffee is better than other breakfast restaurants. Service is good. Price is unbelievable.

“Regulars to Flaco's Cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

We're local to Flaco's and eat their often. The service is awesome EVRY TIME. The staff is so friendly in a natural way. Food is equally as good as the service. The portions are large and well cooked. The Cuban dishes are authentic and delicious. The menu has a wide variety of Cuban & American items. Prices are very reasonable. They serve an awesome breakfast too. This is a tough town for eateries 'cause we're very small 6 months of the year and jam packed the other 6. Most folks are retired and watch their spending closely. Flaco's remains busy all year as they have established a year round following. Sounds simple, but it's not in Zephyrhills

“Always a pleasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

I have been going to Flaco's Cafe for the past 2 years and have always had a lovely experience here. The food is always delicious (try the rope vieja) and the wait staff is always friendly and willing to help you out.

Delicious food, great waiting, and a wonderful reputation have kept this place going great. TRY IT OUT!
