Ate here for the first time two weeks ago and couldn't get over how GREAT the food is and how LARGE the portions are. I had roast pork, yuca, black beans, collard green soup and plantains. I can't wait to go again and take friends.
We travel to Tampa from NY about 3 times a year and make it a point to eat here and Mom's Place every time. Great cuban food. Great value, inexpensive, and delicious every time. Excellent waitstaff. specials every night. can get crowded because very popular with all the locals. My favorite is ropa vieja.
You'd never think that the best fried rice in Tampa would be found at a Spanish restaurant, would you? It's out of this world! If you get the chicken fried rice you get huge pieces of chicken on the side. The roast pork is also great, and don't forget the plaintains. If you are like me and don't care for shrimp, ask them to leave it out since it comes in with all the fried rice.
