I'm Cuban but I live in Plano,Texas. There isn't much Cuban food around. I go to Miami every year and Abuela's is like my second place there. They could improve is some areas but they have overall great food and amazing mojitos.

We came for breakfast. Service was ok. I think they need to have more servers in the morning. The food was normal/typical breakfast food. I did not find it to be anything special. But not terrible.
