We came in to a very aggressive waiter pushing a number of specials and combos, but we opted for the lunch buffet and it was quite good. A lot of options, good salads and soups, well-done sides like garlic-and-butter boiled yucca, and a variety of mains (beef like ropas vieja, some pork, a chicken, and a soupy beef in red sauce). It was all tasty enough and the price was right. Not the most authentic Cuban food in the buffet, perhaps, but plenty to enjoy at a very good price.

One of the best Cuban restaurants around. The place has been there a long time, which tells you a lot about who they are. The place is gringo friendly so if you have any questions about their menu items they will explain everything. The food is your typical Latin food with traditional sides of rice, black beans, and plantains but it is all made with love. Beef, pork, and chicken are all on the menu. Portions are large and prices are very reasonable. Wonderful atmosphere and they can accommodate large parties.

We used to visit Padrino's in Boca for many years while residing in W. Boca, now as we moved to Tamarac, we went to Plantation.
Must say, service was and is always GOOD; meals most of the times sufficient to take a "doggy bug", and made with good taste and quality ingredients.
My pork chaps where made to perfection, to was the rest of the meals (Fish and lamb)
Prices very good for the quantity of food and sides.
And be sure while you wait for your order, to place an order of "mariquitas".

Came recommended by a local and with good reason. The two of us enjoyed a combination plate, two entree (pork with onions and a skirt steak) and they were fantastic. The Mojitos hit the spot but they go down too easy!
