    The avocado garlic salsa is amazing. The tacos and burritos in the back are awesome and they get them to you fairly quickly.

    The ropa vieja is terrible, I threw mine away. It might be okay for a gringo but it won't satisfy this Cuban chefs palate. The pastries and the Cuban bread come from Florida Bakery in Tampa

    The food takes a long time to come out, but it's very good! It's overpriced, but it's downtown. Good pastries, too.

    Overpriced for Cuban food that doesn't taste like break Cuban food. Just a huge line of drunk ppl every night. The ropa vieja does NOT taste like ropa vieja should...

    Rice bowls are where it's at!

    The problem with Flacos is that their Cuban Sandwiches are the best in the WORLD. Every time I order a Cuban anywhere else, I'm always grossly underwhelmed. Thanks Flacos for ruining Cubans forever.

    Excellent pressed sandwiches. Empanadas aren't the most flavorful, but most of the food is spectacular.

    Flaco's Cuban Bakery is by far one my favorite little cuban restaurants in town. Make sure you get a "cafe con leche" with a "Quesito". It's the best desert ever!!! Read more
