I am a son of a Cuban and have an idea what good Cuban food should taste like. The Cuban sandwich is the best in Atlanta! The pork is cooked just right. And the bread perfectly pressed. And you have to drink a Materva(Yerba-mate soda) with it. The entrees are good. But, do not forget some yucca(root plant like a... More

If you are in the T terminal at ATL Papi's Cuban is a good choice. It is less crowded than some of the restaurants on the main drag in the terminal. They have both table service and carryout. If you have the time, sit at a table, have a beer and a Cubano sandwich or a dinner plate.

My husband and I had plenty of time to kill waiting for our flight at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, so we walked back and forth through the entire airport checking out ALL of the food places. We decided we wanted to try something we had not eaten before, so we selected Papi's Cuban & Caribbean Grill and we were... More

The server was awesome, I had to catch a meal just before a flight and she made a great meal suggestion, and made sure I was taken care of with time to spare. There should be a sign please seat yourself, but other than that no complains. Food was great, service was good and the atmosphere is friendly and welcoming.... More

My husband and I happened on Papi's in Midtown after visiting the Aquarium. He had the Ropa Vieja and I had the Tostones with shrimp. Both meals were excellent. The service was wonderful. Our waitress and others kept checking on us to make sure we were well taken care of. We will definitely make sure to come back next time... More

I live in Miami so I know a thing or two about Cuban food. My kids and I had a long layover in ATL and decided to try Papis Cuban Restaurant. I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical about eating Cuban food in outside Miami, but the food was quite good. We ordered their Masitas de Puerco... More

Small cozy restaurant but loud! Screaming kid the whole time we were there but service was quick and food was good. Must have an ID to order drinks even if you are way past 21 years old!

My husband and I love empanadas, and an internet search showed us that Papi's has them in several varieties. Drove up there mid afternoon on the Sunday of July 4th weekend. Were fortunate to get a parking spot in the fairly small lot behind the building. They are located just across the corner from Mary Mac's, which has always been... More
