“Always a treat to eat here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

Our daughter and son-in-law introduced us to Cubanos shortly after moving to Silver Spring. We visit once a year and always go to Cubanos. What's not to like? Great ambience, excellent, friendly service, the best mojitos ever, a menu that accomodates vegetarians (and the rest of us), and the one time we had room for dessert, that, too, was fabulous. With drinks and tip expect to pay $40-50 pp. It's worth it.

“Always great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

The food is just a little better than average, but the atmosphere and location is excellent. You should definitely try the mojitos.

“Yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Great food, great service, relaxed atmosphere. I love the bistec palomilla, amazing steak and onions. With rice and black beans, it's major comfort food!

“Average Cuban cuisine with very friendly service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Went out with a friend to try their lunch...was immediately greeted with a friendly 'buenos dias' at the entrance and given a choice to sit on the outdoor veranda or inside. Service was extremely prompt, menu entrees in the $10-$15 range, drinks were constantly filled with no upselling gimmicks, and server split the check with no hassle. Ordered the carne asada...it came with 3 flour tortillas and all the relevant Latin sides except for cheese. Average taste but I was hungry so ate the whole thing..fortunately without lingering gastric disturbances. Convenient location near a storied parking garage and medical center.
