Here you will get an authentic Cuban sandwich and the café con leche is legit. If you want a piece of "West Tampa", this is your place.

I stopped in for a quick lunch based TA reviews. Loved the atmosphere of a family restaurant. My Cuban sandwich was good, needed a bit more cheese and toasting for my liking. I would try again as the menu is extensive.

Voted Tampa's Best!.. My family agrees. We always make it a stop when we go to Tampa. They like them pressed, I like them 'cold'... some like the honey ones, I like the original... they also have other Spanish foods, but we always go for the Cuban sandwiches.

I have come here many times mainly because I love Cafè con Leche and Cuban bread. But honestly this people have no sense for customer service. It's ridiculous to wait over 30 min just to get someone to your table and It seems worse everytime I go. They don't have enough people waiting tables and the ones that do (that... More

Stopped by based on reviews, something must have been very wrong today. Very unfriendly workers (no customer service), ordered soup and Cuban sandwiches. Soup was a pleasant surprise...Cubans were a sad excuse of a Cuban. Literally had a nickel size amount of pork on our sandwiches. This is not a true Cuban sandwich. It was a basic ham sandwich pressed.... More

Was visiting in Tampa with my wife and, although I was born here, hadn't visited in quite awhile. I had a craving for a "good" Cuban sandwich, which is not easy to find. Based on the TA reviews, we headed to West Tampa Sandwich Shop and could not have been happier with the results. My wife had a bowl of... More

First visit to West Tampa Sandwich Shop and the positive reviews are right on. Excellent menu options, very good value and tasty food. Tip, if you plan to take out, call in order in advance, as the regulars do. Otherwise could have a long wait (20 minute for me for a sandwich). Highly recommend and will definitely return when in...

Cafe con leche, cuban toast, scrambled eggs and bacon for $5. CAN'T BEAT THAT! I went early on a Sunday morning where several tables were occupied by boisterous old men laughing, yelling and eating. Authentic and satisfying. I think I could live on their cafe con leche and cuban toast. yum.
