We were driving to Tallahassee after a long day, and just wanted to eat something and go to our hotel. We found Habana's on our way to the hotel, and to be honest, didn't expect much, but we were in for a great surprise. The food and service were outstanding! Make sure to order some coffee, it was really good!

Great selection of very reasonably priced meals in a casual family setting within a strip mall. The food is terrific and the service is both quick and efficient making it a spot well-worth visiting. The Vaca Frita (shredded beef grilled with mojo and onions) was delicious and served with two sides for $10.50. The portion was plentiful and I chose... More

That tells me what I need to know. I am not an expert on Cuban food so when I see quite a few that are then I know the food will be good. I loved the pulled pork cooked Cuban style. When they have it usually the special I love the Cuban style pot roast. Every time I have eaten... More

Dining Solo. Wait staff appeared to be new or unfamiliar with their area. Anyway once attended to service went ok. I drink a lot of fluids at my meals, so my glass was empty a couple of times. (minor detail) I started w/ yucca, this was cooked perfectly and the dipping sauce was phenomenal. I had the Masita (pork and... More

This Cuban restaurant features the menu, the service, the prices, the atmosphere, and the quality you'd expect from a local, neighborhood-based Cuban restaurant. Personally, i'm glad to have any Cuban restaurant in this town. Carlos has failed twice. Black Bean failed. A server calls out a cheerful greeting as you arrive. The menu is all the usual stuff -- ropa,... More

My husband and I wanted something different and something good. We had the pulled pork with grilled onions, black beans and plantains. It was busy, but not overly busy, we were promptly served. Having eaten the plantains in Belize, we were pleased to find a place that knew how to fix them. The pork was really great and the black... More

Eating at Habana's Boardwalk was an amazing accident. My wife and I visit a new restaurant every Friday for lunch, and alternate surprising the other with something they've never had before. Being my turn to surprise and treat, I needed something close to her job, and reasonably priced for the lunch hour. I did a map search of places to... More
