My buddy and I chose this place for lunch one afternoon. Heard great things about it and wanted to give it a try. Needless to say we were not disappointed. He had the lunch special and I had two empanadas. His dish was served straight from the visual hot plate at the counter. Mine was cooked fresh from the back... More

Large portions of great food. Small restaurant that gets packed during lunch time but you can't get mad at a business for being successful.

When I visit Ocala this is one of two places where I stop and eat Cuban Food. Since I live in Minneapolis we don't have this type of restaurant there and I wish we did. Growing up in a cuban-puerto-rican family, i love cuban food. I love the cuban sandwiches made here along with other menu items. Since I only... More

Our first visit to this restaurant was at 1:30 PM on a weekday, and the place was packed - very nearly every table was full. This is a good indication regarding the quality of the food. We ordered roast pork sandwiches to go, and were really shocked at the size of the sandwiches. They were huge and packed with pork.... More

Came in for bread and cafe- stayed for the best Lunch Ever! Husband and I tried both the pulled pork and pico and yucca and plantain - black beans- just the best Cuban experience in Ocala. Will be returning for both the food and the service. The option to sit outside or inside in a pleasant and clean environment leaves... More
