I asked a worker at the Tampa Airport where to go for lunch, specifying a locally-owned restaurant not necessarily on the tourist circuit. We were sent here and we were not disappointed. You get a full plate with meat and two sides for a very...More

Great little place for lunch. The roast pork is delicious and this place is always crowded. They also make a great Cuban sandwich.
