As a native Floridian and a frequent traveler, I'm a hard judge on food but the Floridian is consistently the best cuban sandwich in the bay area as I frequent both locations. Guys are on their game, prompt and helpful is you want to make changes to the sandwich.

Ordered Cuban Sandwiches, black beans and rice and crab balls. Everything was hot, sandwiches beautifully pressed. Beans and rice (with diced onion) were delicious. A real taste of Tampa!

A friend had bought a Cuban sandwich and brought it for lunch it was absolutely delicious! We found out that it was from the Floridian which is a little sandwich shop on W. Kennedy in Tampa, FL. We stopped last week to have lunch there and just killed ourselves on Cubans, stuffed potatoes and Jalapeno poppers! The cuban was one of the best I have ever had. I would drive from St. Petersburg to Tampa to get one. The bread was day fresh, toasted and crunchy, the meat well flavored and absolutely delicious. They are open for breakfast and lunch. They do cater as well. I forgot the twice fried french fries, to die for!
