Whenever I'm in mood for authentic Cuban food I will go out of my way to get to this restaurant. Their lunch specials and sandwiches are excellent and compared to many others "authentic" Cuban restaurants, they are, by far the finest.

Went here as one of my last meals before deploying overseas. Fantastic roast pork and excellent daily specials. Don't forget some plantains.

just a little place but very good service and the food is great! We liked the chicken and the beans and rice were just right.

My co-worker ordered cubans for us and then REFUSED to tall anyone where they came from. It took me two weeks of prying and I finally won a bet to make him tell me where they came from. The very next day, I dropped by to have one. Bought one to eat and one-to-go, All The Way, of course!! Amazing!!... More

From the authentic bread to the real pulled pork (not sliced), to the ham and cheese. This is the real deal. All the flavors are there. Don't get intimidated by the size, you will be able to eat it! Recommended...

They pour on the yellow rice. Love it. The Pork roast taste good as well has the black beans. We usually take out and bring home to share the meal.

Good Cuban food! Can take a little while to get your order..... not too long though and definitely worth the wait. Very clean establishment. No liquor just soft drinks, I would usually get my order to go.

The Cuban and medianoche sandwiches are our favorites, but don't miss the black beans and yellow rice, or the ropa vieja with a side of plantains.
