    The Cuban sandwich is a variation on a popular classic in owner Mary Morabito's hometown of Tampa: roast pork, ham, salami, Swiss cheese, pickles, mustard and mayo on grill-pressed Cuban bread. Read more

    Authentic Cuban cuisine. The "Fidel" Cuban sandwich was excellent. Music is a bit loud for my liking, but it does match the atmosphere. Visited on a whim and it was worth it.

    I really enjoy the live music and some of the dishes. A friendly lay back place for people to gather with good friends.

    The chicken sandwich may not have been the worlds best but it may be in the top 5. Service was a bit slow but there was a Bulls game going on and they were pretty busy.

    Dinner was just ok, but the chocolate cake was outstanding! Come on Thursday nights for salsa dancing!

    The Tres Leche cake is WONDERFULLY RICH and free with dinner checkin. Their guacamole is the only one I like in the area! Love this venue :-)

    Try their mojito. It's awesome. Ask to add strawberry puree, it's even better.

    Amazing food, but the place always feels understaffed. Servers are polite but frazzled. Order a simple drink if you want it quickly.

    Also.. If you come in expecting to get a great appetizer with the foursquare special... You only get ones less than $6.

    Stone crab bisque was fantastic but the half sandwich could have used some more meat. 4 of 5 stars. I would eat here again.

    Won't let you use the foursquare check in special with a restaurant.com gift card. They tell you it's a coupon.

    Can never go wrong with the fried green beans. Blue martini nice change from my usual mojito.

    The food was decent and the service was fine. However, the premise of the restaurant and its decor are extremely offensive. They glorify Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, revolutionary thieves and murderers.

    Good gluten free options. Decent place to have a meal prior to going over to DPAC.

    Awesome revolutionary decor, cheap but good food. I wasn't impressed with the drinks though - relatively expensive and stingy on the alcohol

    Drinks were decent, but the service was pretty bad. Starting the introduction by outlining all of the things on the menu you don't have anymore doesn't leave a great impression.

    The food is amazing! However, the service hasn't been that great the last couple of times I've gone :(

    She left then came back and said they won't let us substitute the missing sides with salads but will give a discount for our meal.

    The Flan is pretty authentic. Not overly sweet & firm. The Ropa Vieja was also authentic tasting.

    The "Hostess", Barbara, is an rude insufferable bitch an for the life of me I can't imagine why the owner wants her to be the very first person his patrons have contact with.

    The crab cake is not the world's best, as the name would have you believe. The empanadas are dank tho

    Awful service! Waitress said my meal came w/ rice & beans. It didn't. Requested some rice and was charged for it. Mgr refused to remove it from the bill and chastised me for not understanding the menu

    Ropa vieja was a disappointing dish. Don't get it unless you like a scoop of meat with about 3 cups of white rice.

    Food is great but the music is so loud you cant hear yourself think. When asking them to turn it down they say they cant. Wait staff look like they dont want to be here

    Stale chips, oily/vinegar gazpacho, and downhill from tapas. I know restaurants are experience goods, but I didn't even want to pay the food was so bad!
