“Good Cuban Sandwich”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2012

Cuban sandwich was spot on and very reasonably priced, but the maduros were not quite ripe enough so they had a heavy starchy taste. Unfortunately, I question the health/cleanliness practices of the operation. The lady busing the tables was also the person making my sandwich and I never saw her wash her hands. Icky! For that reason alone I will not be returning. That's definitely a bummer as its hard to find a good quality Cuban sandwich.

“Great food, Great value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2012

We love eating at this place. It is a family-owned, casual restaurant with very affordable and plentiful Cuban food. Try the Chicken Juliana (especially if you like garlic!), the garbanzo bean soup, the crab roll ( we've always called these "deviled crabs") and the empanadas. Finish it off with a cafe con leche with a guava pastry or coconut pastry!
