This place is the place I want to stop at if I am in the area. I want them to build one closer. I know people from Cuba and they say this is the real deal. YUMMY

3rd visit. It's always fast service with great environment; music and lively people. Wait can be long, but if you get there at the right time, you get seated in a reasonable time.

I have 5 girls and my wife are gluten free eaters and all of them ate with no problems. They just didn't eat the bread. The rice and beans , grilled chicken and the plantains are no problems for them. I hope this helps.
