Ive been comin to this place for as long as i can remember. One thing you ll always find here is the quality of food any sandwich is oof the chain. One thing to notice these guys have kept prices so low that it even beats any fast food place price n better food quality.

Was in the area and decided to give it a try. As good a Cuban sandwich as I've ever had. Also had the chicken soup that was loaded with chicken. My wife and I split a large Cuban and we couldn't finish it because she also had the garbanzo bean soup. Best part, the total with tip was around $18.... More

Why it took my fiancée, who happens to be Cuban, over a year to introduce me to Aguila I have no idea. Even though this place is minutes from her house it somehow slipped her mind. It's a good thing i love her because this is one place not to be missed. They were even featured on an episode of... More

Met a friend for Lunch and black bean soup, cuban sandwich and cafe con leche was excellent. Small sitting area but worth waiting on a table if full. You will not be dissapointed.
