A small business that is well worth it. Us locals crowd in many weeknights to experience the food. It tastes great, and the staff is awesome!

We lived in South Florida for 31 years and have had a lot of Cuban food. This place equaled or bettered most of the places we've eaten in South Florida. I had forgotten how good true Cuban food, made with love, can be! The pork plate was wonderful, tender, nice and juicy, with great flavor! And the plantains we ordered... More

We decided to try something different in Lakewood for lunch and saw Frijoles rated on TripAdvisor so we went. It is best to remember that seating is limited and getting there early will let you have a choice of tables. I decided the outdoor area wasn't an option as it is right next to the parking lot, so no atmosphere,... More

Having lived in Miami, I'm somewhat of a connoisseur of Cuban cuisine. This place would do fine in Miami, but not be exceptional. In Colorado, it's exceptional. A good place to try Cuban food if you're not familiar with it. Try the vaca frita; not exactly what you'd get in Miami, but still tasty. Owner is friendly. Since you order... More

This a small Cuban restaurant in Lakewood. The family who owns and operates it, is awesome. They are the most friendly people you will meet. The food is excellent. Get there early because the dining area is small although I have never had an issue getting a seat. I love the Cubano and the fried plantains are good too.

Looked to TA for a restaurant near our new home in Lakewood. This place had good reviews & was very close & not a chain. A friend & I went to give it a try. It is not at all a fancy place. Just a little "hole in the wall" type place. We were out for good food and a... More

Love Cuban food and it's difficult to find in this part of the country so I was delighted to stumble upon this place - with the help of TripAdvisor. We were greeted as if entering the home of a friend and were offered a sampling of the day's special. Wound up trying their signature dish and loved it. My child... More

This a great little Cuban restaurant. It's a little pricy for a sandwich but they pack them in. Come early as the small dining area feels fast at lunch. Super nice family owns and operates it. Awesome traditional Cuban food!!!

First time there today, and how regreat I am that I didn't go before. Great setting that really reminds me of the carribeans/Hemingway house, and the food and the owner's whole family working there. This is really a package deal to experience, really one of the best I have had in the area. The specialty pulled pork is excellent, so... More
