My wife and I have come here, many times, and have never been disappointed. This is really good Cuban food, and at a very reasonable price. Service is always great! We'll be coming back, again (and again).

If you love Cuban food, then go no further. We come here for the authentic food, and boy do they deliver. The Cuban sandwich is to die for, make sure to get a meat pie as an appetizer. I suggest a mojito for a drink!

I have 5 girls and my wife are gluten free eaters and all of them ate with no problems. They just didn't eat the bread. The rice and beans , grilled chicken and the plantains are no problems for them. I hope this helps.
