The owner is generally available for questions and is glad to talk about his recipes and preparation of the freshest Cuban anywhere. Excellent traditional Cuban fair, generous portions, friendly staff. Love this place!

Youd think this place was a weight watchers group for how theyve drastically reduced their portion sizes by almost half. You'll pay 11 bucks for a small plate and 6 for a tiny sandwich. And that's what I had tp spend 17 total for takeout food just to get full. Theyve gotten too greedy and I won't be back.

My husband surprised me by going to maryville,Tn for lunch. This was my first Cuban food. I was very impressed. Staff were friendly, food was great. We got a small Cuban combo it was just enough. The people next to us got a large. Unless your really hungry' I suggest not to get the large. This is very casual atmosphere

Always love dining at Aroma. Spectacular Cuban food!!! The large Cuban sandwich is enough to divide. The Maduras are always cooked to perfection. Love the red beans and rice too.

I love Aroma Cafe! I've been here several times, and I've brought family and friends who are also now addicted to the delicious food. I usually get a Cuban sandwich combo, and the small size is big enough. They have a large selection of sides to choose from. My favorites are the black beans and the papa relleno. If you've... More

We wanted to try Aroma given its great reviews. It went way above our expectations. Exterior is rustic and we were greeted by a friendly employee at the counter. Patrons suggested The Cuban and our "server" strongly suggested we split. We shared a medium Cuban panini which came with beans and rice. The kitchen was kind enough to plate it... More

This is our fifth or sixth time here and it is quickly becoming our favorite! A must try for those who like a little bit of Latin culinary experience in a otherwise bland traditional food area of TN.

This place has fantastic food and reasonably priced. I had the medium sized cuban sandwich combo for $9. It comes with beans and rice, and a drink. Absolutely the best black beams and rice i have had. I will definitely be back! Note it does have limited seating and parking and is usually packed at lunch (and i can see... More
