I'm Cuban, grew up in Jersey with New York across the river, live in California, best cook iv ever known is my mom with my wife not far behind, I have to tell you this was the best Cuban food in a restaurant I have ever had. Even my wife, who is highly critical, agrees with me. If you don't come here or dislike it, well you are either nuts or bulimic. The staff is ok, not the beat but not the worst. The food is incredible and at good prices. Definitely coming back while I'm here in Miami visiting family.
