It was my first time visiting this restaurant. We stood there for a good 10 minutes and no one greeted us nor told us to seat ourselves. Several servers walk by us and no one said anything. I had to stop someone and ask to be seated and she said you have to seat yourself and walk away. They should... More

I had never had any Cuban cuisine before but I loved my first time experience here! The food was great, the price was fantastic, and although the service was a little slow, it was because it was Saturday night and there was a wait but it was truly worth it!!

I must say that this place was very good. I had "Rey's Cuban" sandwich. I really enjoyed it. The bun was buttery and crunchy just like on TV. The pork on the sandwich was not amazing. It was a touch dry, but still tasty. Next time I will get the ham and cheese or maybe the Jerk Chicken. My wife... More

We were looking for something unusual instead of the normal chain food. They had a variety of food. I had to ask the server what things were and she explained well. The pictures on the menu helped.

This place was wonderful. The food was delicious. I got the jerk chicken platter, and everything on it was tasty. The chicken was tender and so flavorful, the plantains were perfect, and there were black beans and yellow rice, too. Plenty of food for a great price. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was perfect. I would highly recommend... More

Delicious food in a totally ATL vibe place. Feels like home with a great chef and familiar servers. Chicken, shrimp....it is all good. Can't wait to go back and try something new.

I stopped by Papi's with a colleague recently for a long lunch. The food and drinks here are great! I was really impressed by the value of their daily lunch specials. I was also a big fan of the deep-fried food sampler (which, I suppose, is a hybrid of Cuban and Georgian food). They also have some tasty cocktails. This... More

This is my favorite place in the city to get Cuban food. The cuban sandwiches are good and the entrees as well. Always like to try the croquettes too
