This place is a little whole in the wall. I had a Cuban and black beans and yellow rice. Authentic and so delectable. I am of the opinion when Cuban food is great it is amazing and if not, shouldn't be made. This place was nothing short of amazing. You can tell everything was home made.

Stopped by this little cafe in a strip mall and ended up enjoying a wonderful home style Caribbean chicken with black beans and rice. The spice in this dish slowly builds up, so ask for mild if you don't want heat! My husband said his Cuban sandwich was the best he's had!! We also had the home made flan and... More

This place is fantastic. One of the best cuban sandwiches that I have ever had. The service is a little spotty, but they are super friendly and will fix any issues quickly. I have been here now on two occasions and will definitely be back!

Best Cuban sandwich we have had in Pinellas County. Simple decor. Very friendly and accommodating wait staff. Do not recommend flan. Will definitely come back again

The place is a little hard to find and is in a strip mall, but once you find the place, you won't want to forget where it is located. The Staff was great and helped explain about the food on the menu, the specials etc. The food was prepared quickly. My steak was grilled, and the beans and rice were... More

We ordered chicken empanadas which were delicious. We also enjoyed our steak dinner and super yummy tostones. We will definitely go back... More

We make a point of dining twice in our week's stay in the area. They have the World's Best Cuban Sandwich (no joke they won the World's competition). We had the roast pork dinner with rice and beans on our last visit and it was fantastic. If you're in the area you have to stop and try their food. If... More

They actually have a winner plaque from a competition for their Cuban sandwich. It is the best I have ever had. Also it is huge. Everything is fresh and prepared to order when you order. The red beans have great flavor. The plantains are sweet and crispy on the outside. The owner and staff are very friendly.
