The chicken is delicious the rice and beans along with the plantains as well. Reasonably priced for the amount of food you get. I also tried the chicken and beef patties and they were not good. Def recommend the chicken lunch special
My go-to spot everyday for lunch for a variety of reasons. The prices are reasonable considering it's located in the middle of Times Square. The food portions can feed two people, unless you're really hungry then enjoy a full plate of food for under $14. The restaurant itself is tiny but the lines move quick. Last but not least, the staff is friendly and the service is amazing. If you want some top notch Cuban food without having to spend or wait for a seat, this is the place to go. Been going here for years and they never disappoint!!!
Excellent little Cuban diner just steps away from Time Square. We had an excellent experience, friendly staff behind the counter that were fun to be around. The food was delicious, we both had the Cuban sandwiches, they were phenomenal. As were the side dishes. We had a delicious and filling lunch complete with a soft drink and Cuban coffee for less than $25, a great bargain amidst all the big chain restaurants of nearby Time Square.
Do not be afraid to navigate the insanity and tourists of Times Square to check this place out! This place is absolutely worth hitting up on a regular basis for lunch! Food quality and prices are untouchable!
Note! The ONLY reason this place is getting a 4 star is after eating here I smelled like a Cuban Sandwich for the rest of the day... not a deterrent but plan appropriately... sit by door maybe or just do take out!
Giving 5 stars doesn't always mean that you are getting a white glove experience. Sure it might seem like any other cafeteria, but the staff were very friendly and accommodating. The food was terrific and it was clearly a favourite tucked away near time square. Many authentic Cuban items on the menu worth your consideration .
