We had read reviews about this restaurant. It was outstanding. We arrived and ordered our meal to go and there was a line out the door when we left. Great sandwiches.

I'm no expert regarding the Cuban sandwich, but my taste buds tell me Aroma Cafe is hitting the mark! Get the Cuban and an additional cup of the green sauce (trust me, you'll want more than one) and have at it. Want dessert? You can now get ice cream just next door (the buildings have an interior connection) for a... More

Nice to find such a good Cuban place in Maryville. Delicious food. Fast service. Cuban sandwiches are great. We also had the sample platter with empanadas, muratos, plantains, and croquettes. Everything was good.

Returned to Aroma. Somewhat off the beaten path for me but somewhere I consistently enjoy my meal. Papa or picadillo are my go tos. Person eating with me enjoyed her meal as well.

I've had everything on their menu multiple times. No need or desire to go anywhere else for Cuban food. Their mojo sauce is addicting.

Got the Cubano / red beans & rice combo on my way back to TYS. Nothing much to say besides delicious food and friendly service. Hopefully I will find myself in Maryville again so that I can taste something else.

I grew up in South Florida and this is the most authentic Cuban food I have found away from Calle Ocho. The Cuban pressed pork sandwich is to die for...also good: beans and rice, Cuban BBQ sauce. Simple, small, quaint, AUTHENTIC. All the locals eat here...just wish they were open later so I could eat this ALL the time... :-)

Thank AugustFlyGirl
