Flew into town last night knew I needed a good Cuban sandwich. I knew this place didn't disappoint. Had to fight the urge to eat it in the parking lot. I'm only here till Wednesday, but I'll be back for my breakfast Cuban sandwich everyday.

Friendly staff and the meat counter and deli have good stuff. Try not to get there during traditional lunch time on weekdays. It's a victim of the popularity and you will wait handsomely to be waited on. Or grab one of the prepackaged Cuban sandwiches that are ready to go if you are in a hurry.

Got a traditional Cuban sandwich (on Cuban bread--unlike those in the North), and a delicious crab roll that was packed with crab meat, that reminded me of those sold by vendors on bikes in earlier days of Tampa. One splits it and put hot sauce in the center. I prefer a different hot sauce than the package one they provided.... More

I live that this gem is in my neighborhood. The food is great and fresh. I have never gotten a bad order or food. I love the butcher shop as well as the deli. The prices are spot on. The employees bust their behinds to get you in and out of there.

While it is just a neighborhood market, this deli uses hand-sliced choice meats and cheeses at very affordable prices. I got the 12-inch Cuban and 1/4 lb of macaroni salad for only $6. the sandwich alone would have cost $10+ most places. There is no indoor seating. For a quick, inexpensive grab-and-go, this is an excellent option.

I have been to this deli twice. They make the very best Cubans in Tampa. Their service is a little slow, but otherwise a great experience.

I had two visits here. On my first visit, I had a pressed Cuban and it was yummy! My daughter had the cheese Quesadillas which she could not get enough of. Second visit I had the Italian Hoagie that was to die for! My daughter had the meatball sub which was delicious. I tend to be a picky eater so... More

Whenever I'm in town I have to make this place a stop on my itererary. Great Cubans and deviled crabs. Do yourself a favor and hit this place up and see for yourself how good it is. Friendly staff and good eats. What could be better?

When I lived in walking distance I frequented the grocery for Cubans and for la segunda Cuban bread. I miss my corner store dearly. go get that Cuban and get it pressed! You won't be disappointed.
