“"Great Food, Poor Dining Area"”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

I've been going to BBD for many years. I'll start with what I love about this restaurant. The food has always been very good and it has always been served without attitude, no matter how packed the "restaurant" has been. The prices are very reasonable and the specials are usually my favorite along with a shredded beef empanada.

What disappoints me is that this place has not found an adjacent or neighboring building with a little more room for dining. There are about 7 bar stools that can be used inside "when it's not too busy" for dining but it is neither comfortable or conducive for enjoying the food with someone else. I realize this is more of a quick lunch restaurant but I would love to come here with a large party and dine indoors. Maybe someday.

“Right on, Black Bean!”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

For a quick in-and-out, healthful and delicious AND INEXPENSIVE experience, try The Black Bean Deli on 17-92 in Winter Park. Everything about it makes it just right. After noon just beware of the line: this place is defined by the people waiting for lunch. They know a good thing. Best to go around eleven or after one, and make sure to order yellow rice with those beans. Yum!

“Cuban standby!”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

I wish I could go there more often, but it is a little out of the way! Black Bean Deli has been a staple in the Orlando/Winter Park area for years and years! I still can't get over how delicious the food is with comparable prices! A must try if you are craving authentic Cuban food!

“I hope nobody finds out about this place”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

It is tiny and if it gets too popular, I won't get a table. The food is very good, the atmosphere is zero (but this is not why we go). It is unpretentious and always reliable.
