I make a point to come here every time I visit Miami. I love the plantains with Mojo (Mariquita con Mojo) and the Grilled Chicken Steak with rice and beans. The food is great but the staff is hit or miss. Our waitress (this past visit) was less attentive than I would have liked and did not speak much. She... More

We liked to have a quick lunch and happened to stumble upon this restaurant. It being a very quiet Sunday afternoon we had no problems receiving our food timely. Service was good as was the food, in reference to the price paid.

Driving back late home and I decided to stop off at this place for a media noche sandwich. Place is a solid Cuban Cafeteria. Sandwich was tasty, lot's of ham and pork and Sandwich maker seemed quite proficient as well. Recommend highly if you are in this area of town.

Three additional customers and I waited over 5 minutes for its outside window service. Two left and one said this was a recurrent issue. I noted other waiters chatting among themselves, walked inside and ordered a meat empanada to go. Food was good. Perhaps each waiter has an assigned area. If so, the place needs a circus director to please... More

I've been visiting this place for years and love the local flavor and food. However, breakfast is my favorite. They have great cafe con leche, cheap prices and you won't leave hungry. The menus are in both English and Spanish, so even if your server doesn't know English, you can still point and get what you want.

Great cubano sandwich to go. Fried plantains are crisp and not greasy. Staff is barely bi-lingual, but you're in Miami so its actually better than most places! Same level of friendliness and speed you'd expect from most diner type establishments, just better food.

There have to be over half dozen eating places in Miami-Dade called Latin America .......and they can be as good as the original or the worst possible place you can go for Cuban food. This one in my personal visits happens to be in the second category and by long shot, I have tried this place at least 3 times... More

Look the title is a big statement given we are talking about Cuban food in Miami. But rest assured this little place is the best I have eaten anywhere. Go for the Miami sandwich it is perfection, watch the sandwich maker start to finish and you will see why. Every step in the process is designed to maximize flavor. Breakfast... More
