    This is a popular Cuban restaurant in Miami, along with Versailles (they're owned by the same people). Portions are quite big.I love the plantain chips with mojo.

    Ropa vieja, sweet plantains and the fried cassava is to die for. There's also a sweet man at the end of the resgister that takes your food to your table if you have too many bags on your hand. Awesome

    La Carreta doesn't serve the most gourmet Cuban food in Miami, but with multiple locations, it's a convenient place to get the classics. Read more

    So much more than the cafecito @ la ventanita. One of the best Cuban Sandwiches in Miami.

    "Un café con poca azúcar en taza por favor". Say that to the lady at the coffee window outside. The cafecito here is solid. The cortadito? Not so much. Go to Versailles for that.

    Loved the "Surtido criollo" a few of almost everything! Couldn't finish it cuz I ate a "Caldo gallego" before.. Don't do that! You can't handle 'em both! The cocktails are loaded with extra booze!

    Highly recommend the fufu with masas de puerco. One of the most delicious things they have. It's an appetizer, but it will get you full

    This is the quintessentially Cuban exile restaurant - cheap, tasty, huge pictures of Cuba on the walls, and where Miami's cops go for late-night coffee. But La Casita down the street has better food.
