    Come summer or winter (alcohol induced tropical dreams are a thing, right?) suck down the Super Rum Punch. Worth it whatever the weather.

    First and possibly only good meal I've had in Times Sq. I think this place exists at a fold in space time. It's probably technically in the Bronx

    Love the live latin music. Great mojitos - still find the classic the best - and great ribs as well, with meat falling off the bone.

    At $12, their Cubano is a tad pricey for a sandwich, but it's a big one (I couldn't finish mine in one sitting)

    Food was dissapointing. Nothing tasted as you expect it would. Where is the "Cuban" flavor?

    Ultimate Mojito quite as good as in The Carribe in Toulouse, France. You should taste it to compare !

    We've learned to line up at 4pm to beat the crowd for $1 empanada Tuesdays. Our favorite is the cuban when it's available!
