    The food of pappis was absolutely delicious. we came in at lunchtime with a group of 25 and they were able to accommodate us with no problem even though they don't take reservations. Great place!

    I just love the ropa vieja sandwich. It's heaven. I can't function after eating it, but it's heavenly :) The bread and the garlic sauce.... Yummmm. Their fries are good...other sandwiches as well!!

    Check the daily specials. Most are good. Ropa Vieja is a good one, & Papi's Cuban sandwich good too. Also like pork masitas. There is a location up near Kennesaw too (Chastain Rd. )

    Best sandwich = croqueta preparado. Only place in atlanta to get it beside miami. Food is always good, cafe con leche is even better. Also ropa vieja, masitas de puerco, arroz y frijoles

    No need to wait to Friday, Ropa Vieja is available everyday with yellow/white rice, plantains and Cuban bread. BTW... do you know about the parking behind the restaurant?

    The yucca fries are the best I've ever had. Light and crispy on the outside but smooth and creamy on the inside. And the garlic sauce is the bomb!!!

    If you go during peak hours, I recommend ordering upstairs and eating there. The service staff (veterans included) run around like chickens with their heads cut off!

    I grew up in Miami and this is the closest to authentic Cuban food we've found in ATL. Everything is delicious.

    Great for lunch. Yuca fries are great and so are most of the sandwiches. I love the sweet bread. Nathan Murawski

    Get the ropa vieja sandwich. If you're feeling like trying something new, get a "Colombiana" soda drink and mix it in a glass with beer (half and half), it's what Colombians call "refajo" (pronounce
