We decided to try out Mad Cuban Cafe. The service was friendly, and fast, even though we special ordered several items. We tried the empanadas, which were delicious. We also tried the papa rellena, which was also really good. The Cuban and gone bananas sandwiches were huge, perfectly toasted, and really delicious. We topped it all off with the churros,... More

Went for a Monday lunch and was told several items were sold out over the weekend. Yikes! Don't open if you can't deliver on the menu.

My sister who is very picky loves this place. She took me there and I thought the food was good but not outstanding.

Love, Love, Love this place. A taste of Cuba/Miami right here in Simpsonville SC. What to order? Everything! Only way this place could be better is if they opened for breakfast. Seriously the menu is traditional Cuban food and it's all delicious.

We decided to try the Mad Cuban for lunch on our day off. Just wasn't for us. We like alot of flavor and it was lacking in this area. Now the service was GREAT the workers were really friendly. But as far as the food pretty expensive and not worth it in our opinion. I had the Cuban gone Bananas... More

What a great local (by way of Cuba) restaurant. The food is authentic Cuban - and so is the coffee. Both are good enough to cause lines when the door opens every day...and both are good enough to make whatever the wait definitely worthwhile. I personally prefer the Media Noche over the Cuban. The only difference is the bread -... More

Good sandwiches, except the bread was hard as it was pressed way too long. Rice and beans were bland. I would recommend this place, however being from Miami and eating lots of cuban sandwiches, I'd rather wait till I go back to Miami than going to Simpsonville to get my cuban food fix.

This place has good reviews, but we found it just about average. We weren't "Mad" about their specialty Cuban sandwich. The choice of ham was salty, and the cheese nothing special. I'd order something else next time. It's worth a visit, but nothing out of the ordinary.

Free day to visit stores. Chose them to see what they had to offer. The variety was great. I had to get an order to go. Enjoyed every bite. Glad I stopped. Will certainly eat there again.
