Though it is not included in traditional touristic circuits while visiting Miami, Molina's Ranch is, with no doubts, the most authentic Cuban restaurant in town. Whether you prefer traditional pork dishes, bistec de palomilla (beef steak) or fish, Molina's will provide you with true Cuban flavor.

Traveling through Miami on my Harley, spent the night in a Doral hotel. Researched this restaurant as being both quality and convenient --- and it was all of that.

Ordered a cortadito and when I went to pay was told 3.20 cents. I got insulted and left it there's no restaurant that charges over 3.00 dollars for that. It's a rip off will never recommend it or put myself there again.

Hadn't been to Molina's because of moving away. Had a hankering for a good Cuban sandwich when visiting friends back in Hialeah. Went and got a Cuban sandwich for myself and a Media Noche sandwich for my wife. These sandwiches were just as delicious as the last time we went there. 2 thumbs up !

We were entertaining guests from the United Kingdom who had never had Cuban food before, so Molina's was a natural choice for their first time for something authentic. Needless to say, the food disappeared because it was that good. Our servers were constantly checking to see if we needed anything, and the service was better than in some other restaurants.... More

Molina's has been a family staple of ours for a few years now. Great Cuban favorites, with great portions at incredibly reasonable prices. Top notch service with a family atmosphere every visit....

Staff becomes very familiar with what you like. Overall I love this place, the food variety is great even thought they are cubans.

I love the croquettas here! They are delicious! The Cuban food here is very good. The boliche or the Vaca frita are usually my go to meals. The service has always been friendly. This place has existed since I was a child.
