We all enjoyed this authentic restaurant in little Havana. The roast pork entree was delicious- a lot of food! The service was very good considering the waitresses were few and overworked. Quite an economical choice as well in a completely tourist neighborhood.

I got the media noche Cuban sandwich which was massive and packed with filling. A little too much ham relative to pork but the bread and fillings were great, as were the tiny fries. My son’s beef dish was incredibly tender and yummy too.
