I ordered chicken soup cup and grilled chicken breast as take away. Chicken and black beans was packed in separate container and rice with chicken was packed separately. Soup was ok ok. Rice along with chicken was good and liked the Banana roast.

We love Caribbean food and tried this restaurant during a day trip. The food was good. The prices were moderate. The location was ok. The staff was also just ok. Nothing stood out to me as AMAZING or EXCELLENT, but I would say that it was ok. We didn't regret eating there as everything was good and are willing to... More

The waiter wasn't able to answer a few questions regarding some of the menu items. He was rude and sassy. When our food arrived it was not appeasing to the eye and the taste confirmed how it looked, not good at all. The bread on my cuban sandwich was not even close... The coffee was just ok.

We looked up the menu online before going... what we didn't know was this is a chain & this particular location doesn't serve the full menu that's online... and unfortunately a couple of our selections fell into this category (including the Fish Tacos, which was the whole reason we came). The food we ordered ended up being fantastic, especially for... More

It was my first time visiting this restaurant. We stood there for a good 10 minutes and no one greeted us nor told us to seat ourselves. Several servers walk by us and no one said anything. I had to stop someone and ask to be seated and she said you have to seat yourself and walk away. They should... More

I had never had any Cuban cuisine before but I loved my first time experience here! The food was great, the price was fantastic, and although the service was a little slow, it was because it was Saturday night and there was a wait but it was truly worth it!!

I must say that this place was very good. I had "Rey's Cuban" sandwich. I really enjoyed it. The bun was buttery and crunchy just like on TV. The pork on the sandwich was not amazing. It was a touch dry, but still tasty. Next time I will get the ham and cheese or maybe the Jerk Chicken. My wife... More

We were looking for something unusual instead of the normal chain food. They had a variety of food. I had to ask the server what things were and she explained well. The pictures on the menu helped.

This place was wonderful. The food was delicious. I got the jerk chicken platter, and everything on it was tasty. The chicken was tender and so flavorful, the plantains were perfect, and there were black beans and yellow rice, too. Plenty of food for a great price. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was perfect. I would highly recommend... More
