This place is a real WOW! It is located next to the Berea Post Office and quite easy to find. Though they once may have been a small take-out joint, they are now a medium-sized restaurant with a good sized parking lot. Inside they have around 25 tables with an additional 9 outside on the patio. The place is attractive and clean with a young vibe. They also have a bar not mentioned on their website though I am not sure if it is open yet. You place your food order at the register and they bring it piping hot to your table. If you want, you can watch them prepare it in their open kitchen. I liked that they have a large cooler of iced water with large cups available on the bar. Finally getting to the best part - the food! The food is so flavorful and fresh. I had the Roasted Pork Shoulder, Rice & Beans lunch box. The pork is incredibly tender and packs a lot of flavor. The Spanish-style beans were out of this world - a bowl of them with a piece of bread would make a great winter lunch. The rice was creamy and plentiful. My son let me taste his Cuban Sandwich and I have to say it was spot on. It was much better than the dry thin authentic sandwiches I have had at the Columbia Restaurant where it was invented and on par with the delicious award-winning Cuban sandwiches at Stone Soup (both in Ybor City). This was my son's first Cuban and he was hooked! Prices were very reasonable. On the tables, they have a homemade orange-colored hot sauce that starts out tasty and then blooms into an inferno (by my weak standards). Nice staff tops it off. This place is not to be missed.
