This place is obviously a neighborhood fixture. Huge drive-through and walk-up lines, and lots of seating. Won the annual croquetas contest. Great lamb chops and pot roast. Wish we had time to try more on the menu!

I absolutely love Islas Canarias. One of the most delicious and authentic Cuban restaurants that I have ever eaten at. Hands down best croquetas in Miami and I love their fried malanga. Delicious! Great times with great people and it is well worth the wait!
