I was not familiar with Cuban food but my friend was. The food was very tasty. I had the fried tilapia and I tried yucca for the first time.

Always eat here when in rtp. Everything has always been good. Plenty of parking and usually no wait or a short wait. Very convenient to airport so a great place to eat before a flight.

The food here is decent, their prices are also decent. I usually come here mainly because of the music and theme parties. I like the carnitas and ropa viejas, they also make great drinks.
