    disappointed today. Paid $11 for pork and fries. Thought it would be traditional Spanish pork shredded but no they slice it now it was dry and flavorless don't know why they changed it

    Horrible customer service. Forgot our food. Everything was cold...even the hot food. Should've gone to Gaspar's Grotto.

    A specialty of the house is "devil crab" a lot like crab cakes, but tastier.

    Don't expect the manager to be nice. Charged me - eight months pregnant for a second sandwich when my first sandwich fell on the floor before I took a bite. Worst management and food was subpar!

    Lisa Reeves · February 10, 2013
  • Kristina T.

    Ask for April, she is a wonderful person with an easy going personality and knowledge about the food! I will now always ask to sit in her section, the food was also wonderful!!

    They charge $2.10 per soda, even club soda from the tap.

    Devil crab is awesome! Lots of crab! Not too much breading. The blue crab meat pasta is one of my personal favorites!

  • Michael J.

    Skip the cuban, I have had better north of the Mason Dixon. Its not bad just not anything to write home about. Devil crabs are intresting, worth trying.

    Cuban sandwich was mediocre- tomato, lettuce, no pickle resulted in sandwich available anywhere instead of a local specialty

    Island Bruin · July 22, 2012

    A quick spot for lunch, Carmine's is an Ybor institution. Low-priced, no-frills Spanish food piled high — what more do you want?
