The service was awesome. Everyone was extremely polite, friendly and homie. The food was the best Cuban food I have had since leaving Florida. This will definitely be a place I go to regularly and a place I will talk everyone who visits me. Great Job!!!

This is a "whole in the wall" restaurant but the food is great! My husband and I came for lunch Sat 7/23 and the parking lot was full. Our traditional cuban sandwich and black rice and beans came quickly. They just open an ice cream shop which had many choice of ice cream and 3 sorbet flavors to choose from.... More

If you love Cuban food, you will not be disappointed. It's a small cafe lacking ambiance, but with food this good, who cares. We had roast pork, rice and beans and Cuban sandwich with a side of sweet plantains-all delicious. Very reasonably priced.

I love this restaurant. Not only is the food great but the atmosphere is so incredibly comfortable. Their cuban sandwich is my favorite, don't forget to try the tostones! If you're in the area this is a necessary stop to make.

I'm from Miami and this is the most authentic Cuban food I have found since moving to Tennessee. Best tostones and meduros in East TN.

First visit with friends and I will definitely be going back. Great Cuban Sandwich and red beans and rice. Reasonably priced and really good food. Restaurant is small but very charming and clean. Not much parking but found one when someone left. You will not be disappointed and great for a nice change.

I make a point to stop here every time I come to Maryville. It's easy to miss and don't let the exterior fool you, this is a hidden gem! The food is simply divine and the staff are always welcoming. Word of advice if you're picky like I am, just go for it. Order the Cuban, take a bite and... More

Absolutely the best Cuban sandwich around! If I were to make a list of my Top Ten Favorite Holes In The Wall this would be included. And I use that term in the most positive sense. The black beans and rice are very good. And don't forget the mojo sauce!

Thank Scott B
