Food is excellent. Great appetizers & entrees. Authentic Cuban food. Black beans are delicious. Get the bistec empanizdo. Don't need a knife to cut it. Friendly staff, good music playing in the background. Definitely recommend.

First visit and we were happy with the food. We ordered the cuban sandwich that comes with fries and the appetizer of 5 ham croquettes with a small salad. All was very good. Presentation wise they could do better with the salad. For the size...More
