Family members live near here, and they assured us it was the best Cuban food in north Atlanta. It might not be easy for out of towners to find, but it's worth it. The place was packed with locals of all kinds, the staff was attentive, and the owner, as others have noted, makes it his business to greet and speak to everyone. Honestly, I don't know authentic Cuban food, I just know this food was delicious and modestly priced. A great evening out.

Jorge, owner, cooks like he is still in Havana. The food is authentic Cuban but a Marietta price.
Save room for his Mango pie with Cuban coffee.
YUM...

We were staying overnight near the Cobb Galleria for an early morning flight out of Atlanta. We found the Cuban Diner on Tripadvisor and decided to give it a shot. It was nearby but the route there was through some older residential areas. This is another great place to eat in a strip shopping center that you would normally drive by without giving it any attention. We eat Cuban food anytime we are near a Cuban restaurant. This little unassuming place is near the top. Jose goes above and beyond being sure you are well taken care of during you meal. I had the Cuban sandwich with Maduros (Fried Ripe Plantains) and Yucca Con Mojo. All were delicious and large portions. My wife had the Lechon Asada (Roast Pork) Cuban style with Maduros and Black Beans. She enjoyed her dish as well but did think the black beans were lacking just a little. Overall it is a fantastic value, very clean, friendly staff and good Cuban food. If you are in the area, give them a try.

I really enjoyed the maduros. The yuca with mojo sauce was also delicious. My main course was the Ropa Viejo. It was very tasty. My husband tried the Cuban sandwich and said it was the best that he's had. Our server was attentive and helpful with respect to the menu.

Cuban owner serving real Cuban food. Jose is there nearly every night to see that you are taken care of by the excellent staff. Excellent choices of chicken, beef, pork and fish. Tremendous choices of sides. Recommend Moros and maduros. Best flan ever had. Cuban food is not "hot", just spiced wonderfully. Meal prices are cheap and quantities large enough to have take home for another meal. Most choices refrigerate and reheat very well. This is a super Cuban restaurant. Not a large place, so if you are taking more than 4 make reservation. Enjoy!!!
