This is a tiny dinner with good hole in the wall food. Breakfast all day, Cuban was descent. If I lived near this place I would eat here often. Lots of local traffic.

Went to get two Cuban sandwiches to go. (It's in their restaurant name). However, they turned out to be more like Ham sandwiches. We couldn't find or taste much pork, it was almost all ham. We didn't order ham sandwiches. Go for their breakfast and dinners, skip the Cubans.

Granddaughter who lives in Tampa took me for lunch. Had mini Cuban sandwich and homemade CaldoGallegos soup (soup & sandwich) the soup was to die for, the sandwich was sent back to be grilled again it came out cold. I have had better. The wait staff was very accommodating. The shop was small, found it to be clean,nice serving size.... More

We ordered the Cuban in the regular and large sizes. They also have a mini, which I wish I would have ordered so I could try the fried plantains. Order your Cubsn pressed all the way, which means warmed and with everything on it. Delicious!

Excellent small restaurant only a block from the stadium and no one seems to know of its location. Food was excellent and the beer was cold, faily crowed but the wait staff and owner did an great job of helping everyone.

Visited with friends in Tampa . Though somewhat dated. The atmosphere is projected toward the retired and working class. Good service and good food override any concerns of decor difficulties one may notice as a concern. I would recommend a visit.

We have been going here for 3 decades. They used to have the best Cuban Sandwich and Spanish bean soup in North Tampa. It is not as great as it used to be. However, it is still very good. All their meals are quick to the table and the servings are tasty and generous. And I mean very generous.

We were nearby for an appointment and asked for a recommendation for lunch. The Cuban was good, a generous portion of meat, good bread and fresh extras. We had ours pressed, but it could have been left in the press a bit longer. The restaurant is nothing fancy but, service was fast and courteous. The servers knew regulars by name.

Thank AnitaS484
