A business colleague and I chose El Tropico on a whim, when we felt too tired to drive anywhere (El Tropico was located right next to our hotel). We were warmly greeted and seated immediately. Our waiter took the time to explain a few food...More

Hidden gem not far from Hyatt Hotel. Great food! Excellent service! Pulled pork and pork chops were outstanding. Mojitos were really good. I would highly recommend and dinner cost is very reasonable.

It was little weird because we were the only customers in the restaurant. The service was good and our hostess explained what some of the dishes were. The portions were a good size and the food came out pretty quick. This was our first experience...More

Set back in a shopping strip mall this out of the way place is a locals type place. Food is priced fair and you can sit in a booth or at the counter. Listening to the Latin music snacking on some awesome fresh Cuban bread...More
