“Great Cuban Food”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

We ate lunch here on Sunday and really enjoyed it. They offer daily specials. I ordered the luncheon special chicken breast with fried onions, and it came with rice and black beans. For $7.99, it's an exceptional value. My friends ordered tacos (more Mexican) and the cooked pork. Everyone was happy. For $2.59, we started with a side of guacamole that was very fresh but could have used a little more punch. No one ordered liquor, and the check for three people was about $45 with tip. Easy parking in a strip mall on Commercial Blvd. Definitely worth the trip and some of the better Cuban food we found while in the Fort Lauderdale area.

“Alabao! You feel at home if you are Cuban ;-)”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

I have for the past two years enjoyed eating or taking food home from this fine restaurant. Whether you get the weekly "cantina" (ready to take home meals set for daily pickup) or sitting down with family and friends this place is it.
The pork, chicken and beef is properly seasoned, and as a second-generation Cuban American I can tell you we all are happy they are here in Fort Lauderdale. The lunch specials are amazing, you will not leave hungry from this restaurant!
Drinks, food, service and prices, Fuego Latino Restaurant is the best for Cuban food in all Fort Lauderdale.

“Comfort Cuban!”
Reviewed January 19, 2013 via mobile

Loved it. We arrived hungry and immediately ordered Empanadas. The waitperson brought them quickly along with a cold margarita . The empanadas were huge, hot, and delicious. Both of us had their Bistecca de Palomilla Empanizado(breaded steak) that came with rice, black beans and sweet plantains. This was one of our best meals in the area. The wait staff could not have been nicer. We ended with a flan and cafe Cubana and left full and happy. If you're not looking for gourmet, just good hot authentic Cuban food go to Fuego Latino!!

“Great Value and Great Food”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

This place is a find. Great food on a budget. Fantastic Oxtail or Cuban Chicken. Fantastic Rice and beans. homestyle. It doesn't get any homier than this. The chips and salsa keep coming.
Not a place for upscale dining but it is always a home run with anyone I have brought there.
A mom and pop Cuban place at great prices. Lots of flavor and friendly service.
