Wow! This was nice! You would never know you were in eastern TN when you dine here. We are very familiar with Cuban food from our Florida days and this restaurant ranks with the best. Our server was so helpful and friendly and really set the tone for the evening. The shredded beef, plantains, rice, everything was just excellent. We even took home a Cuban sandwich which also was excellent. If you want something even more different, get one of the Cuban sodas. Several flavors to choose from and we enjoyed the Ironbeer and Pineapple versions. Pricing is very fair and we were treated so well instead of the usual touristy restaurants that just want you to hurry and give up your money. Plenty of parking in front. The atmosphere is rather average inside but we understand a re-model is in the very near future. Highly recommend. We will be back!

The food is sooooo good! You must visit. We got the fried pork, Cuban sandwich, and chicken steak, all with rice, Black beans and plantains. The fried pork was DELICIOUS...moist and tender. I also got a small coffee. I’d go back again just for another cup!

Don’t miss this restaurant!

We've been eyeballing this place everytime we're in Pigeon Forge and finally decided to give it a try. Being adventurous eaters we like to try new types of food. We decided to have the Cuban sandwich and a beef empanada. We were surprised when our food came! The sandwich was about a foot long and was more then we could eat in one setting. The beef empanada was incredible as well. And I had what may have been the best cup of coffee I have ever had. Very impressed with the food and the service. We will DEFINITELY be back.

There really isn’t much competition in the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area when it comes to good eats, but we are so grateful we found this hidden gem on the way out of town. Only wish we had found it sooner! Quaint spot, great service, and authentic, delicious food.
