If you’re hankering for a Cuban, visit Bearss Sandwiches. It’s been there forever and has the best Cuban bread. Everything is so fresh. It is on N Florida, between Fletcher and Bearss. It’s a hole in the wall, but those are my favorite places. Berta,...More

I've been going to Bearss Sandwich Shop for years. It's a great little sandwich shop that's hidden away. My favorite -- the Cuban Special. Berta, the owner, has a loyal following because you get a great sandwich at a good price. Her deviled crab is...More

I drive by here all of the time. I was not sure what I was expecting but they have seating inside. Maybe I was thinking it was a take away place, like a Bakery. It is bigger inside than it appeared outside. It appears older...More

I have never had a bad meal here. The owners take great pride in their food. The portions are big and the prices are reasonable. If there is one item on the menu you should try it is the meatloaf sandwich. Not your momma's take...More

We ordered three different sandwiches and potato salad. For one thing, they were smaller than they use to be. The bread use to be big, round and fresh sliced. The Cubans use to be meatier than they are now. They hardly press them, like they...More

A great little local sandwich shop. The Cuban was delicious, as was the Chicken Salad. Great service. Make sure to read the "Store Rules" on the counter, very funny.

Alas, Jerry, the always-joking co-owner of the shop passed away suddenly and unexpectedly recently. This has not damaged the quality of the sandwiches, which are still outstanding, especially the Cubans. The joking tradition has not disappeared either, with ongoing banter with the customers continuing. Always...More
