    Leave your passport at home and chow down on the Cuban Sandwich. Ground beef stew is amazing. Don't forget the sweet plaintains!

    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

    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!
