I had the Masitas (fried pork with onions) with black beans and rice and french fries. The beans and rice were decent, the fries were okay, but the pork wasn't seasoned at all and was a little on the dry side. I probably wouldn't eat here again even though they have good reviews on other items.

Habana's Boardwalk is a nice place for lunch. The Cuban sandwiches are full of meat/cheese and are huge. While the tables are very close together, we were able to find a quiet table where we could have a good business conversation. Associates had other menu items and found them equally tasty.

I can't understand how this place gets such high marks. The food was average at best, and the service was lousy. I visited during lunch time and the place was nearly empty. The waitress who seated me asked for my drink order then totally forgot about me. I had to flag another waiter to get my drink and food order.... More

We were driving to Tallahassee after a long day, and just wanted to eat something and go to our hotel. We found Habana's on our way to the hotel, and to be honest, didn't expect much, but we were in for a great surprise. The food and service were outstanding! Make sure to order some coffee, it was really good!

Great selection of very reasonably priced meals in a casual family setting within a strip mall. The food is terrific and the service is both quick and efficient making it a spot well-worth visiting. The Vaca Frita (shredded beef grilled with mojo and onions) was delicious and served with two sides for $10.50. The portion was plentiful and I chose... More

That tells me what I need to know. I am not an expert on Cuban food so when I see quite a few that are then I know the food will be good. I loved the pulled pork cooked Cuban style. When they have it usually the special I love the Cuban style pot roast. Every time I have eaten... More

Dining Solo. Wait staff appeared to be new or unfamiliar with their area. Anyway once attended to service went ok. I drink a lot of fluids at my meals, so my glass was empty a couple of times.

This Cuban restaurant features the menu, the service, the prices, the atmosphere, and the quality you'd expect from a local, neighborhood-based Cuban restaurant. Personally, i'm glad to have any Cuban restaurant in this town. Carlos has failed twice. Black Bean failed. A server calls out a cheerful greeting as you arrive. The menu is all the usual stuff -- ropa,... More
