As typical Cuban food as you can get! Laid back atmosphere - Order at counter, plastic plates/utensils, friendly service, delicious food. As appetizers we got the croquettes, Yuca fries and the meat empanadas. Had the chicken dinner (ropa vieja) and the flan and everyhting was on point! Going back for sandwiches, they looked great!

We stopped recently at the Cuban Grill on Capital Circle NE in Tallahassee not long ago after seeing the sign. We love Cuban cuisine and were immediately persuaded. The restaurant is located in the corner of a small strip mall on the east side of Capital Circle NE not far from Home Depot. The interior is simple and modestly decorated.... More

We stopped in on a trip to Tallahassee. We have been to many Cuban restaurants. This is the best. Its in the corner of a strip shopping area. You order at the counter and they call out your name when ready. Nice booth area to sit and plenty of seating. We had cuban sandwiches with black beans and rice. That... More

I have been visiting Tallahassee for years and somehow overlooked this gem. It's tucked away in the corner of a small group of stores but we'll worth the visit. The Cuban Sandwich was one of the best I've had but the black bean soup was the absolute best I've had! This was my first visit and the lady behind the... More

Although it's smaller, it still has the best Cuban grub in town. This no frills establishment doesn't try to impress you with anything but the food. If you go expecting more than that you will be disappointed. If you're just looking for some decent Cuban fare this is your place. BTW: It's only open for lunch.

Nothing specific. The food was just ok and the black dude was not friendly. He called on me to go to the counter and get the food while he brought it for the other white old couple. He was intensely watching football which made me nervous too. I just wanted to eat my lunch.

If you are in Tallahassee you should always eat here. The beans are cooked overnight and the food is prepped like you would expect your abuela would. Palomilla, fried pork chunks, plantains, yucca and bread are all fantastic. Reminds me of eating Cuban food when I was a kid in Miami.

I planned my trip so I would be in Tallahassee for lunch at the Cuban Grill. The owners are friendly and walk around to check on the patrons. The food is fresh and served with a smile. Next time I'm in Tallahassee, I will stop here for real Cuban food.

I grew up in south Florida, so I love Cuban food. This is a small place and the food is good. The Cuban Sandwich was not as good as Miami, but it was close, and you can get a half sandwich, which I liked. The Picadillo was very good, as were the sweet plantains. You order at the counter, then... More
