I'm new to Tina's. A friend of mine suggested it and WOW, am I glad I ate there. The food is flavorful and beautifully presented. The Cuban sandwiched are so good and fresh there's usual a line for them. The staff is friendly. The only downside is the cramped limited seating. If you come at lunchtime with a large group (preferably not too large), be ready to wait for seating. The location is very clean, including the restroom. If you haven't had Tina's, you're missing out.

Tina's was fantastic, Push through the giant line for the takeaway section and make your way through to the back of the restaurant to eat in. You won't be disappointed. Their home made salsa verde is to die for... squeeze it onto a cheap and tasty empanada and you will be in heaven.

We went here twice during a four day stay in New York. Will definitely go back.

Delicious Cuban food with big portions. You walk by the take out counter to get to the seating area and you can see what everything looks like. Menu is easy even if you speak no Spanish. Very casual but servers didn't rush us at all.

There is an excellent range of lunchtime specials. The pulled beef stew was well complimented by plantain and yummy beans - say no more !
