Holy pulled pork, batman! The reviews are right. The flavor is incomparable. I like Chipotle and Qdoba ... you'd be crazy to go there instead of this place. At this writing 3/1/2017, there is construction on the building, and so the sign is not easy to spot. Ignore the exterior, it's what's on the inside that matters. The proprietors are... More

This place is AMAZING! Authentic HOME-MADE Cuban food. Best I've ever had and I'm from Miami, born and raised. I came to Lakewood for a week-long working vacation and I've eaten here every single day. Their pan con bistec is SO flavorful and their homemade Cuban bread is SO soft and so delicious. Everything is seasoned to perfection. Their arroz... More

Who would of thought to find the best lechon sandwich in Colorado?! Well it's here in Lakewood & we were lucky to find it on our way to Breckenridge. Family owned & staffed - very friendly; make you feel like part of the familia. We also had to eat some of their Cuban pastelitos - guayaba & guayaba con queso.... More

The fried yuca was the best along with the fried bananas. However, the man dishes were sort of bland. The average meal costs around $11 without drink. The added extension room with the bar is freezing so make sure you sit in the front room where you order the food.

I went in here for lunch after seeing the reviews. This is not the kind of place you come to for the decor, it is a little cafe in a strip mall. The reason to come in is the authentic, at least to this non-Cuban, delicious food. They have a small but effective menu, plates, sandwiches and the sides you... More
