    Once you take a bite of the Cuban sandwich you could taste the citrus flavor in the pork! Pretty good highly recommend. Also recommend the shrimp taco! Next time I'm here I'm trying the corn 😀

    Great place to grab the best Mexican corn on a stick! Before or after a show at nearby Webster Hall or Irving Plaza

    Saturday evening for a quick bite and to satisfy a craving for some true Cuban meal. Noticed great spots at the bar, Food is great and the ambiance is chill, corn is really tasty cover with parmesan.

    Cozy (tight) seating, but worth it. The Sloppy Jose was delicious. With just a hint of spice, it a favorite. The sandwich size is generous - I tried my best to finish it all.

    Share the corn. The quesadilla de pollo was good. My friend had the cuban sandwich which looked delicious!

    The corn on the cob seems to have lost its luster, but the Cubano sandwich is superbly done, with roast pork, ham, and pickles, all between toasted bread. It comes with a side of fries as well.

    This is one of my first loves of NoLita. Order the mexican corn (elote) and stock up on the toothpicks. For something heavier, get the fish tacos with amazing rice and beans, or the avocado sandwich.

    The corn is the best!!! And a great service from the girls. Be sure to arrive with enough time, this place can get very busy, but the wait it's really worth it!
  • Sasha C.
    I constantly thank my friend who introduced me to this paradise of food. The corn 🌽 is epic (it's roasted with spices and cheese and lime juice). The quesadillas are my fave, served w/ rice and beans

    The grilled corn comes with two but it doesn't say on the menu. Try the fish tacos.... With the jalepano margarita (strong and delicious)!! I was about to burst with happiness by the end of the meal.

    Nearly 20 years ago, models used to congregate here for the best Cuban corn in the city – and for late-night runway shows, of course. Still amazing maíz with cotija cheese, cayenne and mayo.

    Aside from the Mexican corn, the food is pretty blah. Amazing old school diner feel and downtown hipsters make it worth a stop for your touristy friends tho

    These amazing chicken tacos are great on their own, but they’re even better with a side of corn smothered in cojita cheese. Read more

    Get the Cubano, have it with a salad instead of fries so you can have plenty of room for a side of plantains. The corn is a must try if this is your first time here.

    Eat like you're in your own nyc apartment, with 20 of your friends, all squeezed together but all full of courtesies. Corn is the bomb and the sloppy pepe for brunch is the perfect portion

    Fooled by the name, many people wrongly believe this is a Cuban restaurant. Astute readers of the menu know that only Mexicans call a sandwich a "torta". Get the signature torta cubana and a cocktail.

    They basically pay you to eat the huevos rancheros here. They're solid, and the cheapest good lunch you can get in Soho: $6.50.

    the Cuban Sandwiches here are a work of art, same goes for the roast pork sandwich. It's well worth spending a few extra dollars on the Mexican grilled corn.

    Order the grilled corn & the Cuban sandwich, you will leave happy. This place is always packed, but the wait moves quickly. Plus, you're in SoHo, browse the shops while you are waiting.

    The grilled corn is amazing. I had the Cuban sandwich as well--def a good choice. Just be warned that if you ask for extra sauce (chipotle mayo) they'll hit you with an addtl $1.50 on the bill.

    Mexican grilled corn. what more can you say about this place? Grilled steak sandwich is also good! Be ready to wait for a long time and crammed into tiny tables.

    Best place for solo eating: you can sit at the bar, the people watching is always entertaining, and you can get steak and eggs anytime of day.

    The takeout/delivery menu is different than the dine-in menu. Take out is limited, but the Steak Torta is delicious and delivery super-speedy. The Mexican corn can be considered a tourist attraction.

    Great food! Vegetarians beware, they refused to substitute any meat products for avocado. The tacos would have been great with avocado rather than chicken or pork. Sucks!
