Had lunch today at this longtime Cuban food mainstay. Have been eating here sporadically since it opened almost 50 years ago. It for sure has become a tourist stop, but it still serves the same large Cuban food choices it always has. Yes when it's a busy lunch time, they are a bit of a factory with lots of people getting you to an open seat and getting your order and serving. There is a line to get in even for lunch, and a longer one on weekends. You are packed in and it does get loud. However the food was as good as any other good Cuban place. The Media Noche sandwich was just like I ordered it: Warm all the way through with the cheese totally melted yet the bread was not burned. Something that many places can't deliver. The Plantain soup was as good as homemade as was the Tamal en Casuela. The Milk Shake was tasty as well. The prices were very reasonable specially considering what an attraction this place has become. Yes, you can still take an out-of-towner here for the Cuban food experience. Besides the few parking spots out front, they have a large parking lot across the street for overflow.
