“Good food, fun atmosphere”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

First time at Padrinos and we were not disappointed. The sangria was great. We has a variety-the roasted pork, garlic shrimp and Cuban sandwich. Loved the plantains. Would definitely come back.

“Cuban!Cuban!Cuban!Wow”
Reviewed February 20, 2013 via mobile

What can I say about Padrino's Restaurant. People have talked to me about this place many times but I don't agree
with them that this place is a good place to eat. It's an AMAZING place to eat. The restaurant has lots of character.
Very busy all the time. So try to call and make reservations. Even if you had to wait 30 to 60 minutes for a table,
you will still walk out of there very happy. One of the Best Cuban Restaurants ever. Service was great. Portions were
large. Great prices. Enjoy!

This place exceeded our expectations. We had the Lechon Asado and also a Cubano and both were wonderful. We can't wait to return! Service was super! Highly recommend.

“American style Cuban food”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

Don't hesitate to go to this restaurant because you are not familiar with Cuban food. There is something for everyone. You can order a grilled chicken breast sandwich (pechuga de pollo) for $7.79 with french fries or camarones al ajillo which is simply shrimp sauteed in garlic and butter for $14.99 and it comes with 3 sides. My choices were steamed vegetables, plantains and yucca which sort of tastes like white potatoes mashed. Dinner was delicious and very reasonable.
The place was crowded by 7:00 PM on a Sunday. The staff is professional and informative. This is a bare bones, no table cloth place but the mojitos are outstanding and the food good. Everyone (except some customers) speaks English.
