Great Cuban food for super cheap prices. The service can vary, sometimes great, sometime not so much, but the food makes it worth the trip!

Wow... I was down in Cape Coral to visit family and I had not had cuban food in a very long time. I did not know too many places around so I google searched. El Mambo came up and the prices were very reasonable! I decided to order for the family. We called ahead and then went to pick up.... More

Very good food. Cuban sandwich was great. Ropa vieja was great. Tostones and black beans & rice were a perfect compliment to the ropa vieja. Good prices, good food. I would definitely go back. We went on a Friday night and we were one of 4 groups. It wasn't busy, but the food was tasty.

They really know how to cook pork. And the yucca with garlic butter sauce can not be beat. Fresh mango shakes that are scrumptious .. Oh and dont forget to save some room for the flan.

I've been coming to Mambos for years. Mostly lunch with friends or coworkers, and it's phenomenal every time. The Cafe con Leche is out of this world and their Cuban Sandwich is stacked with meat and cheese and can barely be eaten by one person. They have wonderful sides like fried plantains and black beans and rice. Good old fashioned... More

The best breakfast value I have ever seen. Three eggs a pile of bacon and Cuban toast and coffee. Can't wait to go back

Went for lunch. Food was excellent, service was typical of a latin eatery, not fast but not too slow, more laid back. This place seems to be frequented by mostly Latino people, which to me says "authentic". That is what we look for in ethnic restaurants. The picadillo was excellent. The only down side is they only serve soft drinks... More
