Went here for a late night snack and beer, and it was a good choice. At our table, we had a couple orders of the Cuban nachos. I'm usually not a fan of the plantain chips, but these were very good. Also had a basket...More

Having never tried Cuban food, we were delightfully surprised at how scrumptious these dishes were. We tried several items and nothing was bad. If you're new to Cuban, I heartily suggest one of their combination platters. Plenty of everything to satisfy your tastebuds, appetite, and...More

Nice outdoor atmosphere, good food, efficient courteous service. Nothing to complain about here - did it knock our socks off? No, but is was an enjoyable meal and super convenient to Duval and Mallory. Good option if you are down that way during meal time.

Their green mojo sauce that they offer with their bread is one of the best tasting things I've ever eaten in my life. This was my first taste of Cuban food, and I have thought about this place every single day since my vacation ended....More
