Was just chilling out our last day in the area and needed a quick lunch for take-out. Looked up local sandwich shops and this one rated well and was close so phoned in an order for 2 large Cuban Sandwiches (Pressed Cuban bread with ham, pork, salami, Swiss cheese, mayonnaise, mustard and pickles. Add lettuce and tomatoes for only $4.90!),... More

The food was delicious and mostly priced under $5.00. They were busy and crowded but the food was great. I had a Cuban sandwich and mango shake.

Food was good, staff was friendly, and price was great. Cuban sandwich was good, yuca fries and potato ball was excellent. Beef empanada was very good as well.

Always a treat when in town. The honey Cuban is excellent! The bean soup was delicious. You can't go wrong here. Everything is always fresh and delicious.

President Obama visited here on the stump in 2012 and they named their honey Cuban sandwich (with added lettuce and tomato) which he ordered, after him. I was afraid I might be simply ordering a gimmick...but it was SOOOOK good! Seriously, don't pass it up. The yucca fritas were also really tasty, although the plantains were a bit thick for... More

Haven't tried the breakfast but can't say enough about the lunch sandwiches. The Honey Cuban is justifiably famous. The Pollo a la Marinera is equally delicious. Service is friendly, and the establishment reminds me of a place Guy Fieri would definitely want to give a try on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.

Arrived in Tampa at lunchtime so our friends took us directly here. Passed around black bean soup, chick pea soup and pork tamal. All were fantastic flavors. Also enjoyed a Cuban Sandwich.

This place has excellent breakfast. I had eggs with plantains. Absolutely fabulous and the cafe con leche is delicious. It's a very small place on the inside and it's defiantly popular with the locals. Check it out when you're in Tampa because you will not be disappointed. Great Cubans for lunch. Make sure you get it pressed! All The Way!
