After reading tons of reviews of key west restaurants, I decided this was a must try. Like others have said, there is not a lot of seating. Most of the tables are set up with a bench on only one side, so this place is better for smaller groups. Of course, you could always order it To-go. If you watch... More

Cuban pork roast sandwich is a hit. Service is fast and easy. Took food to go, easy take out food. Been here a few times and service and food are on the money. No frills, no fanciness. Just quick, good comfort food.

As a local i absolutely love this place! Great food, great people - totally recommend this place to everyone. For best experience, call before you go, the place tends to get crowded during lunchtime, so pick-up is a must!

This small restaurant is not known for its ambiance. The service was friendly and fast and the food was outstanding. It sits on a busy corner and is more like fast food take out than a sit down restaurant.

In the distant past this place was a garage or a gas station, but it has been a take-out restaurant for decades. Informal and reasonably priced. Get corn on the cob... (it's grilled with great seasoning, cheese... just yum.)

The food and the Service are great. The outside eating area is on a busy street and if you go by car you may have a problem finding a parking place. Our B&B was right around the corner so it was easy for us. I found a recipe for the chicken and looking forward to trying it out. The corn... More

Very friendly staff. Great tasting food. When we drove by, we both thought "Really? This is the #1 place in Key West?" We weren't sure, but decided to try it anyways, and I'm glad we did. My wife ordered the steak sandwich & I ordered the chicken breast sandwich. We both enjoyed our food.

Great food, good portion size and cold beer. Black beans are truly an inspiration. I will be attempting to duplicate them at the next bbq.!

Ate at Bien with my family, the food was delicious and the portion sizes were large. Be careful on the spice level, even a 1 can be quite spicy on the tongue but, the food is so tasty that you keep eating!!! Definitely worth a visit!

I waited 40 minutes for my chicken sandwich but it was worth the wait! The chicken was marinated, the bread perfectly chewy and the toppings combined made this the perfect sandwich!
