This small restaurant is clean and the service is prompt and friendly. It is a half block south of the beautiful downtown city park. I came in shortly before closing so was not able to try everything on their menu. What I had was good. I enjoyed scrambled eggs, bacon, toast and grits and a cup of Spanish bean soup... More

Chamba's has been around for a while now. As a "local", I can truly say their pressed Cuban Sandwiches are similar to what I used to get in Tampa years ago. Had the Spanish Bean Soup as well on a recent trip and it was very flavorful. Not much in the way of ambiance, but the food is very good.... More

The fist time I was introduced to Chambas Cuban Sandwiches in Auburndale, I was totally impressed. Something was a little different this time. I had the lunch special, which include a half sandwich, a cup of soup, and a refillable fountain drink, for around $7.00. A prominent sign on the wall explains what to expect with an authentic Cuban; toasted... More

Pictures sometimes speak louder than words, this should tell all. NO SLOW ROASTED COOKED PORK!! False False False. Some coldcut passoff. Its ok, but if you want an "OK" Cuban go to the 7-11 for half the price!

Chamba's is more or less an institution in Auburndale. I have been coming to their little slice of Havana since 1985. I keep going back because nobody has matched their authentic Cuban Sandwich and their cup of black beans and rice. MMM, MMM Good!
