If I lived here, I would eat here every week. The employees are nice and helpful. The food is great. I had mojo chicken and loved every bite. Good beans and plantains too. I wish they would sell the mojo sauce. My husband had pork...More

Truly a old school Cuban resturant with a very friendly staff. Food arrived quickly, tasted great and was prepared with great pride. Portions are very filing and enough to take home for another meal. Enjoyed everything.

We eat here every time we visit St Petersburg. We had the pulled pork and the roasted chicken (with black beans and yellow rice). The food was great. It is inexpensive and the portions are generous. Highly recommended.

Discovered Pipo's this weekend and glad we did. The food is set up buffet style so you can see everything (which made it hard for me to choose since it all looked so good) but you order and they bring the food to the table....More

Great find off the beaten path. Several choices served cafeteria style. Choose meat and sides. Pulled pork melts in your mouth. Portions will last 2 days if you can stop yourself from eating it all the first time. Highly recommend.

A relaxing environment with friendly staff is pretty nice, but the food makes the day. Nothing wild or extreme here. It is just very good family food with a Cuban accent.

Rude employees that tried to rush us to order. It's more of a cafeteria type place where they take and fill your order at the front line, you pay, and then you go sit. And that's it. Not worth the price. Oh and they overcharged...More

Not a bad place to get a good Cuban sandwich, great service. The other foods were okay, will go back.

Yes, they have it on the menu. $8.95 It will be very authentic, just like everything on the menu.
