“It was ok.”
Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

I was truthfully disappointed. But the bread was nice and warm, and the service was good. Just thought the sand which would be better.

We deeply regret your experience in our restaurant. We are asking our self what went wrong, The Food?, The service?, the music?, The environment?. Let us know at your earliest convenience and we would like to have you again and improve our image as one of the best restaurant in the area. It is against us to have disappointment customers.

Thanks and hope to see you soon

“Meat lovers haven”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

One of my favorite spots in Doral... this is not the place to bring your vegetarian or dieting friends. This restaurant, is, quite simply, a palace of roast pork. I tend to keep it simple, either ordering the lechon sandwich or platter.

Before your meal, they'll serve you a basket of the best fried pork skin (chicharonnes, or for you tourists from other parts of the United States, cracklins) and arepitas (deep fried cornmeal cakes, a diminutive form of the Venezulan/Colombian Arepa, a cornmeal patty that is usually grilled).

But don't get too full, because the main course is soon to arrive... the pork is so tender it practically melts. Portion sizes are generous.

This is one of my go-to restaurants. I know I can bring anyone, from a local to a recent immigrant to a visiting American and everyone will enjoy it.

“Best Pan con Lechon in Miami”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

If you are looking for authectic Pan con Lechon look no further than La Esquina del Lechon. Their mouth watering entrees and the fried pork rings they give you as an apetizer and DELICIOUS!

“Very good!!”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

The restaurant is great. The appetizers were simple and delicious and the food was really good. I ordered the new york strip with chimichuri sauce and I was very satisfied. The waiter was very friendly and kept refilling our drinks (which is free). Great food. Really recommend it.
