I hate bad mouthing a place but it's wrong for people to spend there hard earned money on this place. I'll keep it simple. Slow and poor service and the food had no flavor. We started with the pork empanadas and there wasn't much pork in them and the pork had no flavor. We also ordered the fried yuca and... More

I noticed the new sign when I drove up and immediately met someone who told me he was the new owner. He said he bought the place a couple months ago and just changed the name. I noticed the menus still have the old name and the same phone number, so I'm never really sure what's going on. The food... More

I visited this restaurant on vacation with my two sisters and father; of the four of us, only my dad had been there before. I am not a huge fan of Mexican food (I don't like cheese or a lot of spice), yet I wound up ordering the fish with shrimp scampi from the Mexican part of the menu, while... More

Drinks took forever and my first order was mojito what I had to send back and opt for margarita instead. The food was ok.... More

Cuban food with an amazing price. We took family from South Africa here for lunch. I had the Shrimp Creole, my wife had the Ropa Viejas and the others all had the Fajitas. Everything was so fantastic. The Fajitas were not the standard fajitas that you can get at any restaurant. They had an amazing Cuban twist that was very... More

We have been coming here for a few years, however haven't been in awhile and forgot how delicious it was. This is Cuban & Latin cuisine.You walk in and are greeted by the owner. Warm homemade crispy tortilla chips and mild salsa(a hot salsa is available if requested) are brought to your table. They definitely take the edge off if... More

I skipped lunch and was famished for an early (5:00) dinner and was thus the first diner that night. The staff was, of course, attentive and helped me decide what item to order. As I was alone, he brought me a small plate of marquitas to sample and they were crispy and delicious. The Lechon Asado (roast pork and onions)... More
