    Roasted pork sandwich was incredible! So tender, no fat, good bread to meat ratio and pickled onions. Tried a few of the hot items in the case thought most were bland but chicken dumpling was good.

    Can't go wrong with the potato balls. Sandwiches are also pretty bomb if you want more than just a snack. Very good place, but also often crowded!

    Cubano or Medianoche are my go to sandwiches. Grab a potato ball filled with tasty meat on the side. The chicken croquettes are a great choice too for something a little lighter.

    The Papa Preparada (Potato Ball Sandwich) no longer seems to be on the menu but they'll still do it at the Glendale location if you ask. I like mine on a croissant. It usually comes with Cuban Bread.
