A hole-in-the- wall with great food and great owners. The sandwiches look incredible. Ask for them "toasted" with pil and salt rub! The beef dishes were well spiced, not too hot but well-integrated flavor. Prices are cheap. Restaurant is NOT fancy!

This little place is delicious! Authentic. The couple that owns it is precious. They do all the cooking and baking. It is a tad bit slow, but so worth it!

While it is not fast, as the other reviews have already stated the wait is WELL worth it. The food is fantastic, and the service always friendly.

We found this place on TA and thought it looked interesting. It did not disappoint. Don't be alarmed when it is in a strip mall and doesn't look like much but it is great. A husband and wife own it and work there. The empanadas...More

Last month we went to another Cuban place which was terribly disappointing, while visiting Lexington. This place is a gem. The couple who owns it are extremely lovely and caring and the food is made with love. The beef empanadas were amazing! We both had...More
