This is a family run Cuban restaurant with great food at a reasonable price. A nice selection on the menu from soup and sandwiches to complete dinners. I have been a customer for 20 years and still enjoy the food. Nothing fancy , friendly service and great prices.

Found this place in a search. Not much to look at from the outside. Located in an older shopping plaza on Armenia. Good food, nice people, right price. $8 for good portion of rice, beans and piccadillo with bread.

Best cuban and best service in the area. Try it and you won't regret it. Best steak sandwich and chicken soup and caldo gallego. The service is excellent and the food is FRESH!!!!! You might have to wait a little bit but is well worth it 👍🏻

I wandered in during mid-morning so I had a Café con Leche while waiting on my breaded Steak Sandwich for lunch. The Café con Leche was very good and the Sandwich was fantastic! Lightly breaded steak on delicious Cuban Bread. Their prices are... More

Family owned and operated for 30(?) years. Very authentic, neighborhood restaurant. Most of the customers are Cubans who live nearby. Far from plush seating and accommodations. Not a lot of tables, but the restaurant is clean. You can watch them prepare your food. You'll see various family members working there, and the staff varies little from year to year. I... More

I eat a lot of cuban food and there are a lot of good cuban restaurants in tampa, however, with the recent change in ownership, this restaurant went from very good to great. I always take out of town guests here and can't recommend it enough. One particularly great dish is the chi cherone (?) - chicken marinated in mojo... More

The pork sandwich with onions is outstanding!! It was juicy to the point that no condiments were required. The girl serving was really nice. The Masa de Puerco was new for us and we loved it. Large portions. My daughter could not finish her plate. The place is clean and they are always willing to serve. The only down side... More
