    I'm eating Papi's Cuban and Caribbean Grill for lunch! This restaurant is changing my life. I don't know why they put guava and cheese in an empanada, but it is amazing!

    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!!

    Rey's Cuban, the Jerk Chicken Sandwich, the maduros, and especially the guayaba and cream cheese pastry. I usually have it on pressed bread, but it's still amazing in an empanada shell. Everything's🔥

    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. )

    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!

    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
