Ordered "El Cubano", and it was good. Restaurant is small and homey. Restaurant is also featured on Diners, Drive-Thrus and Dives.

Place is ALWAYS packed. It is a good environment, regardless of it being so crowded. The food was not bad; their beef stew was delicious and their rice is good. I wasn't too big of a fan of their Yucca.

Nothing fancy here. My wife loved the ceviche. Everyone loved the fried plantains. My Cuban sandwich was very good, but not the best I've ever had.

My friend told us we would never get a seat since its popularity had grown after being featured on TV... but we got lucky and scored a table. Their stuffed French toast still makes my mouth water thinking about it!

Service was not that great. We had to wait for them to make seating for our party of five. We had to ask for water, and were not given a carafe as the other tables around us were. Silverware was brought after our food.

Visited before heading over to Carlos Bakery and it did not disappoint! Ordered Havana Club Triple Decker made of grilled chicken, bacon, tomato, avocado and red onion on toasted multi grain bread with mayo. It came with a side of Platanos Maduros, fried yellow plantains....More

Been here many times. Very narrow (one aisle). Very inexpensive. Very good common Cuban food. I like the chicken soup! It is a meal by itself. My wife likes the beet salad and the tres leche desert!
