We loved our meal at Tropico Mofongo! We arrived not long after opening and while the prepared food looked and smelled amazing, our stomachs told us to order breakfast. I got the bacon egg and cheese sandwich, which was pressed together like a Cuban -...so good! My hubs got scrambled eggs with peppers and onions and added their delicious hot sauce. The natural parcha (passion fruit) juice was tasty, too. Service was also excellent. It’s too bad we live a few hours away or else we’d be eating here a lot more often!More

Went here with my family and it is a great place for Cuban food. Although they are very busy the service is good and and very friendly. I lived in south Florida for 20 years and this place is as good as it gets. The...Cuban sandwich is full of tasty roast pork, ham, and cheese unless you are a very big eater it's large enough to share. The beef empanadas are crazy good perfectly crispy and flaky the best I have had. The bottle of chimichurri sauce should be used on everything. I even tried a little of the chicken strips from my grandson's kiddie meal and they were golden brown and delicious. We were a total of 4 adults and 2 kids and the check came out to 50 bucks and we took home food so it's a great value too you get your money's worth.More

The restaurant was very busy when we went, but it was new years eve so that's to be expected. They have a walk through line where you can get your food or you can sit down and be served which is what our group did....They have decent prices and a large menu. The food was good, but it did take quite a while for us to get our food. Our server made a mistake and forgot to put in my order, but was very apologetic and got it to us as soon as she could. I can't wait to go back and try more things on the menu, honestly.More

We were staying at the Hilton Tuscany Village and had a taste for Puerto Rican food. We found this place after several different options and we were not disappointed! The restaurant is about 10-15 minutes away not far from Walmart. We came on a Thursday...evening around 8:45pm and there was no wait. My husband ordered the Pernil with Mofongo ($11 - comes with chicken gravy or salad). I ordered the Churassco (skirt steak) and Mofongo - $16. You can also get 5 tostones for $1. We chose the chicken gravy and it’s heaven poured over the Mofongo! Not everyone gets Mofongo right but this place was on target! Our order didn’t take long to come out and for a little over $30, we had an extremely tasty meal with large portions to satisfy our craving! We will most certainly be back and would recommend to our friends. Sorry no pictures, the smell had us hypnotized and we demolished the food before we thought to take a picture!!More

I went here on my last day before i headed back to NY. It was the best Shrimp mofongo I ate. The prices are also affordable. My family also enjoyed their food. If you're in Florida and want to eat some latin food, this is...the place. It started getting crowded around 12pm, so if you don't like to wait on line to order your food get there a bit early.More

We discovered this restaurant last year by accident. Ever since then, we come to this restaurant every time we come to Orlando, typically 3 - 4 times a year. By far, this is the best Puerto Rican restaurant in the area. The food is as...authentic as you can get. I thought my mother in law was in the kitchen cooking. The wait staff is friendly, the food is fresh, there are plenty of tables, you don’t have to wait too long for the food, and it’s super affordable. You will not be disappointed!More
