This is a small unassuming place in a strip center in East Tennessee. But don't let locale and looks fool you. The flavors are as close to the cuban food I loved when living in Florida. I had a dinner of ropa vieja, congri and plantains. The ropa and the plantains were perfect. The congri was fine. So that made me want to come back the next day for the Cubano sandwich.

The sandwich was great. The first bite hit all the notes: pork, ham, mustard, pickles, and the special bread! As i ate more, I found the pork to be too fatty for my taste. If they could trim the pork or find a leaner piece, it would be perfect.

The menu has a lot of the usual dishes except for my favorite: Lechon Asado, the shredded pork that has been marinated and is very tender. Maybe they will add it same day.

Both times I visited, there were no other customers in the place. SO, PLEASE SUPPORT THEM SO WE HAVE A REAL CUBAN PLACE IN TENNESSEE!

Went to La Cabana on a Wednesday evening for a Cuban sandwich which I love to eat whenever I get a chance. Pulled up and no cars and no lights. WTF?!? It's a Wednesday night as in hump day! One side of the restaurant had a realtor's available sign and the main door had a "Closed Wednesdays" sign so I'm not sure if they are still open for business, moving or going out of business. If they aren't going out of business, being closed on Wednesdays will get them there sooner.

PS I tried to visit their website after arriving but it's out of commission
