Cheap breakfast and pastries, fill your belly up for around $5. There's three locations. They have good coffee and fresh juice!

I love this place. I've been coming here weekly for over 6 years. Good daily specials. Cheap and lots of food. Awesome oxtails on Sunday and a breakfast special that no one can touch. 3 eggs,tons of bacon,toasted cuban bread and coffee under $5.00... A must try. There are 3 locations. Enjoy ;)

This place serves cafeteria food at best. We ordered Cuban sandwiches and got ham and cheese. When we asked where the roast pork (pernil/lechon) was, they said if we wanted it we needed to specifically ask for it.

A hidden gem a must visit when in Cape Coral. Excellent food at a reasonable price. If you're looking for real Cuban food this is the place.

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.
