This restaurant has great options on their menu. The BBQ pork sandwich is AMAZING! We had Cuban sodas (ironbeer and Jupiña) with our meal. The Cuban sandwich had fresh meats and fantastic flavor.
The rice and beans are extremely authentic and delicious. My daughter cleared her plate. The frita was the ideal portion and had good flavor.
We tried the steak and chicken which were perfectly seasoned.
I loved all of the different flavors. Very cozy place with an extremely friendly staff. The owner even thanked us for coming in and having dinner there. We would come back again.

Enjoyed a really good lunch here. Had the Cubano Specialty Sandwich. Big sandwich. Good quality meat. I chose to have a side salad rather than rice and beans. I will definitely return for lunch again.

We didn't care for this restaurant at all. We read online about the yucca fries so we tried them. They were good but only about 6 on plate. Not much of a selection. Will not go back not very much food for the price Will not recommend to friends

San Mateo doesn't have much on this side of the tracks. Just a few blocks past Hillsdale Shopping Center on the Yumi Yogurt side of the street, a delightful Cuban casual restaurant sits bright and shiny. You step up to the counter and be prepared to wait for 10-15 minutes for your food to arrive. But when it does it is well worth the wait. The well lit dining room with metal tables and chairs. The Cubano is a hearty sandwich with delicate slices of moist pork piled high with ham, melted cheese and a piquant mustardy sauce all on a crunchy toasted roll. The Ropa Vieja, a cuban classic of slow cooked beef wasa lot like a spicy brisket with chunks of carrot and onion. The place is crowded with local workers at lunchtime but the kitchen stayed cool and competent. Plenty of room at eveningtime without the line. The food is so goodhere and prices so reasonable it is easy to see why this will quickly become your favorite haunt.
