    My pork chunks were kinda dry which sucks because this place is all the race by the people from this area. A little extra mojito wouldn't hurt before serving#secondchance

    Great for a quick bite, and easy on the wallet. The homemade lemonade is delish. Opt for delivery or take out during lunch hours.

    Great Cuban sandwich, but the place gets a bit chaotic during the weekday lunch hours; go crazy with the spicy avocado sauce - it's awesome

    If you have never been here before get the Cuban Sandwich and smother it with the Sophie's special green sauce. It's worth it.

    Quick, hefty portions of delicious Cuban food. Breaded chicken, rice/salad and maduros are my go to. Get onions. You HAVE to douse it in that heavenly green sauce. For sandwich: Pernil with a Twist.

    Everything is delicious. And everything will put you in a food coma. And green sauce will make you smell awful in meetings, but you won't and shouldn't care.

    All is great tasting and good priced but the Ropa Vieja and the Pernil are always well seasoned, cooked and moist. Like it here!

    Pernil with a Twist: Chunks of roast pork—the kind you want to pick out and relish separately. Among the onion slivers and jalapeno-green sauce, there are homely fried lumps of sweet plantain. Read more
