I love Cuban food but I'm always disappointed when I get it any other place. We visit our daughter here and my first request is to get carryout from Havana. Last night it was the best it has ever been. Cuban sandwiches were fantastic and the port was tender and juicy. Love plantains and they were tender and not over... More

The Best Cuban Sandwich in Citrus County. The blackbeans are perfect, the Service is very personal and warm you go away feeling like you have been honored for having been there.

I'm a huge fan of great Lechon Asado and doubted that I'd be impressed with theirs but was pleasantly surprised. Interesting mixed menu with some Mexican options had me wondering too. The only downside might have been the... More

Had lunch here with my wife on her lunch break. Fresh delicious food well prepared and quickly served. Had the turkey BLT and some yucca fries and it was all terrific. Servers were friendly and on the ball. Great lunch!

I was over being high, it was all about food. The night before i looked up restaurants in lecanto. This place seemed on point. They were. Great food, nice people. Would i return? Of course. That cafe con leche turns a hour drive into 30 minutes.

Very good food choices on the buffet they have. I've been here for lunch and for dinner. The service is quick, and the food is very tasty. It's a must try.
