This tucked away gem had a wide menu which is certain to please. It's not in the menu, but the history talks about their Cuban sandwich, and they'll happily make it for you!

Good things are hard to find. No exception here as this restaurant is tucked back in the locals neighborhood. It is a completely safe destination and the family that runs the restaurant is great. All the food is fresh and amazing.
