Great place for lunch. Friendly atmosphere, good food, usually fast service. Pan con lechon or the roast pork plate with rice, black beans and maduros... scrumptious!

“Good cuban”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2007

Have been to Mambo's several times. The food is good, though the beans are usually cold before you get half-way through them...remarkable because black beans are my favorite and I like to finish them first! Drinks vary in strength. A bit of an odd location as it is next door to a mechanic shop, but don't let that deter you. Also, the hours can be unpredictable and service qualitiy varies--like a true small "joint."

This is also good for groups for dinner--its not so noisy that you can't hear the conversation and the price is right for everyone. Evenings are quiet there as their busiest time is lunch.
