    The sandwiches and the deviled crab are amazing! There is a wait but it is worth it. I would call and place an order over the phone or on their app for faster service.

    Deviled Crabs here are some the best in Florida. Cubans well I love them. Try a fabulous chef salad you can't eat it all!!! The pork roast dinner is huge and so favorable!!

    In an area known for Cuban sandwiches, Brocato's take stands out as one of the best. Its roast pork, a key ingredient, is so tender that it almost melts in your mouth. Try the devil crab here, too.

    Tampa being the home of the devil crab, they do it best. Stuffed potatoes and meat pies (empanadas) are great too.

    I had heard about this place a zillion times, but had never tried it. I no longer live here, but it was right down from my hotel so I thought I'd try it out... WOW! Now I wish I still lived here.

    They have to be doing something right as there always packed with customers so I ignore bad reviews but be patent as they make the sandwiches as fast as possible but it can be a big delay
