We read about this place in many places before our trip. So it was a must do. When we got in we rented a car and went in search of it. Finding it wasn't hard, parking was, I think we circled looking for 10 minutes. Finally parked illegally and went to the window with the car in sight. We knew we wanted a cubano, however, after waiting realized one would do both of us. Took a bit to understand the sugar cane drinks but even without speaking, our server got us two different versions to try. Amazing! And the sandwich, nothing could compare. Busy place and you knew most of those there are regulars, servers knew them by name. We did go back the day we left and got empanadas (seemed to be a regulars favorite on our first visit)for the road and they were delicious as well. There is a cafeteria style food service inside for those wanting something other than sandwiches or empanadas. Definitely on our "must do" for Miami.

Cafeteria style food for cheap. The chicken empanadas was delicious and fresh. The skin was crispy and the chicken was seasoned very well.

A must go for when you are in Miami Beach. Amazing food at incredibly low prices. The first impression is deceiving, it looks like a hole in the wall, small tables jammed into a small, busy place... but once you try the food, you are hooked. The pork is amazing, so is the chicken and the sweets. We will be going back often, but will from now on only order one main and one desert for the tow of us... the portions are just too big for one person to handle.
