Downtown hub for the best Cuban sandwiches, pastries, and beer. This place is a small 5 picnic booth eatery that is full of the college crowd. The lechon with mojo sandwich was perfect on Cuban bread. The sweet plantains were quite good. Great spot for a quick meal.

I love going to Flaco's anytime i'm in Gainesville. My most recent experience was just as amazing as ever. It was late, past 1 am and Flaco's was slammed! The order took a while to make since it was a bare bones crew of one cashier, one cook and one backup/prepper but boy was it worth the wait. My Cafe con Leche was one of the best i've ever had and growing up in Miami, i've drank plenty. I stopped into Flacos after a concert and bought goodies to take home back to St Petersburg. The food was just as amazing reheated the next day. If you have a chance, definitely stop in and grab a cuban, coffee and pastry, your taste buds will thank you!

I absolutely LOVE Flacos. If you're looking for an authentic Cuban sandwich, this is where you need to come! There is an older Cuban lady who prepares all of the delicious food herself. I typically get a Medianoche but everything I've had has been delicious!!!

Flacos is open late many nights and they are convenient to the downtown area of Gainesville. While its not anything fancy, the food is good, served fast and not at all expensive. Cafe con Leche and Guava Pastry is great. Really good Cuban Sandwich. There is some seating, but we usually grab food and take it to go.

I went after a night out in downtown Gainesville. The line took about 10 minutes. The sandwich was delicious and totally worth the wait.
