Delicious place and very good Cuban food. Service is quick and food is comforting. This is one of my boyfriend’s favorite restaurant/ hole in the wall in NYC and I’m always happy to go with him. This place gets really busy during lunch time.
They serve a delicious Cuban sandwich for under 10 bucks. Order directly from the cashier in the middle and then wait at the end of the counter nearest the front door. Watch the guy masterfully manning the grill who handles the lunch rush for Cuban sandwiches; he keeps it moving. Never had to wait more than 5 minutes for the sandwich. They use good mustard and pickles too and they are perfectly grilled.
I love this place. It is a hole in the wall, no frills joint with delicious food. My favorite sandwich is the "pan con bistek" and my favorite hot dish is the oxtail with black beans and rice the fried ripe plantains. I worked for many years across the street and this was a favorite lunch place.
Great food, but do not go during lunch break. You will have a long wait. Even if order ahead of time
As soon as we walked in were greeted friendly! Awesome service and authenticity. Great food, people, and service
