yummy! good soup and price and the bartender was pleasant. We only had soup and drinks while waiting out a storm and didn't feel rushed. Would go back in a minute.

Papi's has a nice selection of Cuban dishes, all of them good and reasonably priced. Great Cuban coffee and pastries, good ropa vieja and Cuban sandwiches. The mango juice is great!

Visited the area for vacation, someone suggested this place and it really is amazing. The Rey's Cuban Sandwich is honestly the best thing I ever tasted in a LONG time

Had the ropa vieja, black beans and rice on the Friday lunch special. Meat tender, beans nicely seasoned. Also had a half sandwich of ropa vieja on Cuban bread, it was quite tasty served like that. Quick service, friendly waitress.

Got takeout while staying at a local Hotel. The service was easy and the order was ready in ten minutes. I'm Cuban, so I put the food to the test. The croquetas were good! Ordered the bistec de palomilla, which was good. A little salty, but I'm used to not using salt when I cook. The rice and black beans... More

We met there and were seated immediately by a very friendly and helpful staff. Most were speaking Spanish and some are from Cuba.

Loud and busy and smokey and so, so Caribbean at heart. The atmosphere was nothing showy and didn't need to be. Like all great island restaurant visits, this one hit me where it couned; in the mouth! I am not an expert on Cuban food but I would venture to say over half of the patrons were Cuban or Caribbean... More

I was raised in Miami so I have a strong affection for Cuban food. Papi's Cuban sandwich hits the spot when I have a craving for a taste of Miami!
