We ate here because we were staying at the dirty Hilton that houses this restaurant. The food was very tasty. We had two Cuban dishes and they were made extremely well. I honestly couldn’t believe it - my mind was blown.

This restaurant is located in the Embassy Suites near USF/Busch Gardens. The only good part was that they serve Pepsi products to say the least. The burger I had here tasted like sugar instead of a regular bacon cheeseburger. I would never eat here again.
