Great surprise for lunch! Stopped on our way home from Blue Springs star park. Ate outside at the picnic tables. Huge selection of Cuban sandwiches and Hot Dogs! I had a traditional Cuban which was very good and very crispy. My husband had the NYC...dog and a side of fresh Cole slaw. Decorated so cute with a tropical flair. Also had homemade ice cream but we were full. We will be back!More

Cuban sandwich was excellent, plenty of meat. Coleslaw was good too. Service ver fast and courteous. This is a hidden gem.

For a few years, I drove by Tropi Shack on 17-92 and saw their sign proclaiming the “Best Cuban Sandwiches.” Then we decided to give it a try. Tropi Shack’s menu lists 28 varieties of “Cuban” sandwiches; we asked for the “original” Cuban sandwich. Well,...we were disappointed for several reasons: the pork, ham and cheese were very skimpy---only one very thin slice of roast pork; there were no (or just a few skimpy) dill slices; the mustard, like everything else was tasteless. I’ve had much better Cubanos in Tampa and Miami. Tropi Shack failed to live up to its hype.More

Recommend by a friend as having THE BEST Cuban sandwiches, I visited despite it’s very low key side of 17-92 appeal. He was RIGHT! There are more choices than you could ever imagine! My kid enjoys the classic Cuban, while I prefer the one with...horseradish. It’s a very small restaurant, with outside seating. The combos are amazing and they have authentic tropical fruit ice creams! So whether you’re stopping by for lunch, brunch, dinner or just desserts, it beats any fast food place by any unit of measure! We stop by about once a month and this place is always a good choice. The place is family owned and it’s a great local restaurant to support. A+ for Good service!More

Recommended by a friend. I was told they have the best Cuban sandwiches anywhere. Now I see why....Fresh, creative sandwich choices. You have to try the special sweet/spicy rice and black beans. Small place. Walk up service but a great place. Very good prices.

We were driving by and decided to stop. We try to avoid chain restaurants, especially when on vacation. So glad we stopped. The owner was so pleasant and helpful. My hubs enjoys Cuban sandwiches, and that is the speciality here. He ordered the one with...a “twist”. He said it was delicious. I had the philly. Really really good. Our child had a hot dog and milk shake, and enjoyed every bite. It looks like a “dive” from the outside, but well worth the stop. Need to tell Guy Fieri about this place.More

The food is good, but average. Subs can be made how you like it, a good thing for picky eaters. Also, ice cream!

Fantastic Cuban sandwiches, and delicious sweet and spicy beans and rice. Everything is homemade and tasty. Be sure to check they are open if you plan to come near closing time as they tend to close early in the winter months.

Obsessed with the rice and beans, my son loves the chili dog and husband the cuban. Be prepared to wait though. Even if we call our order in we get there and wait.

We stopped for take out Cuban sandwiches for lunch at nearby Blue Springs State Park. Delicious. We even stopped back for ice cream on our way home. Owner and daughter were great.
