Mi Apa has some pretty good Latin food. It's a good place for a quick but good lunch or dinner. It's a great place for people to try out different kinds of Latin food.

Stopped in on a trip to Gainesville and was pleasantly surprised . As good a Cuban sandwich as I have had in much larger cities. Will go back.

Honestly, this should be a go to for every broke college kid. Prices are wonderfully low, and portion sizes are very filling. Whatever you get, I definitely recommend the mojo sauce with it. Generally I'd say takeout or delivery is the way to go, but...More

It is meat and on the side, the rice and beans. Cubans make a hole in the center of the rice and pour the beans inside the hole.
