No pickles on mine, limited mustard and pork was dry. If this is the grand daddy of places to get a cuban you should just stick to Publix.

I had lunch with my family in this place. The atmosphere is awesome, live Cuban music, great food and the best ceviche that I ever had. The chicken is tender and tasty and the king fish is delicious. Prices are reasonable for the area

We came here with our family and were seated in their back patio. Very nicely decorated. Food was good, smaller servings but still good. Wasn't a fan of the yuca.

We had dinner there yesterday night and the food was delicious. Nice place, furniture and atmosphere. Unfortunately, they add 18% gratuity to the bill and then ask for more tip. We found it absolutely unacceptable and left the waitress 10 dollars more in cash. (...More
