I trusted a local merchant and TripAdv. for this amazing local spot. Looks can be deceiving as the interior isn't terribly inviting. But the food.... I use a traditional meal such as ropa or a Cuban sandwich as my barometer. The Cuban did not disappoint....More

This place is the place I want to stop at if I am in the area. I want them to build one closer. I know people from Cuba and they say this is the real deal. YUMMY

3rd visit. It's always fast service with great environment; music and lively people. Wait can be long, but if you get there at the right time, you get seated in a reasonable time.

Wonderful lechon asado and ropa vieja. Fast friendly service, good food, many locals dining here. Black beans and yellow rice are great together and maduros are a favorite.

I like trying new and different kinds of food. Everytime we go back we have had something different on the menu! Live music is great for a fun night out with friends or as a couple.

Each time we are in Kennesaw Ga we go to Papi's. The Lechon Asado is excellent. The way they prepare the pork is near magical. I believe that the Taco Platter with pork tacos are the best I have ever eaten

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.
