I was in Padrino's twice over the course of the week. Tasty, freshly cook meals, great service. May get busy at times. Reasonably priced. Excellent churrasco, seafood dishes are quite good, best flan I ever had.

I dined at Padrino's while visiting family in Hollywood. found them on yelp and was very pleased with the food and service. Very crowded at lunch with mostly Cubans so this is a true testament to them! Great Cuban coffee and churrasco. Will be back next time I am in the area for sure.

I really loved it! Very nice food in an amazing buffet. Not a large buffet, with about 8 hot dishes, but very well cooked.

I would never go back here again. My son ordered a salad before his entree and found a dead fly in his salad. Stay away!

We haven't been to Padinos for about a year, and after almost a month in China, we longed for some Caribbean/South American food. Got there early on a Sunday, and the place quickly filled up behinds us after 6:30 pm. Had two good meals and very good Malbec wine. Service was their usual friendly and efficient. We'll be back more... More
