So after a recent trip to South Beach Miami, I left just not feeling like I got enough Cuban food. Returning back to Dallas I started researching where I could get my fix met. Wow I was so shocked to find this little place just a few miles from my home. I was shocked, I have driven by it thousands... More

Five of us had an early dinner on a Sunday afternoon. Two of us had the Caribbean Salad and we both enjoyed the fresh salad with nicely grilled chicken. The Enchilado de Tilapia was very tasty. Nicely cooked chunks of fish in a flavorful tomato-based sauce. The fried shrimp appeared to be a bit dry and over cooked - looking... More

Cute restaurant with friendly staff. We had Ropa vieja, Boliche mechado, tostones, yucca con mojo, arroz moro, platano maduro. All entrees come with two sides of your choice and bread toasted in a plancha. We had the lunch specials.Very tasty.

The food was really delicious! the portion were huge and they were very friendly, I just wish this place was closer to us so we could go more often, it seem like once you become a regular there is like family. The drinks were very tasty too :)

I took a chance on this spot and invited 2 friends to lunch. One has Cuban heritage so I was nervous wanting it to be good. It exceeded all expectations. Great service. Fantastic food (pork, beef, and ground beef). I even liked the plantains and I'm not a fan of those. I would definitely return.

This is a casual dinner type atmosphere. They feature real plantains (sweet or savory), black beans and rice, fried yucca. The food is filling but not highly seasoned. (I have heard that spices are hard to get in Cuba so this must be authentic). If the food were spiced better they would have a real hit. Service is average to... More

I returned to this restaurant, in this location for almost 10 years, during a recent trip to Dallas. When I lived here this was a staple for me as the food, ambiance and service were tops. This time I went on a Saturday afternoon, around 2:00 p.m., the place was by no means full, maybe 3 of the 20 tables... More

We found this restaurant by default and we were happy that we did. The place doesn't look like much from outside but has good Cuban food and friendly people. The food seemed authentic and was very flavorful and a good selection. The sampler appetizer with pork, yuca, and salty plantains were tasty. We ate tilapia, Cuban sandwich, and rica virus,... More

Every city that my family and I visit, we make sure to try local Cuban food restaurants and after evaluating over a dozen (including some in Miami, Florida) I can declare that this (along with “El Meson” in Houston, Texas) is the finest I have appraised. The restaurant itself does not look attractive on the outside and the neighborhood is... More

I drove by the restaurant tucked away in a shopping plaza. I will say the lunch portions were larger than expected but overall the prices were high for sandwiches. But the feel and the interior design of the seating area and bar room was good. Played good music as well. Nice and friendly staff. Would go back again!
