I just ate here for the first time. First time having Cuban food and I am a fan. Got the Cubana sandwich and fried sweet plantains. Food was great. Place run by a Cuban couple and everything homemade. Will go back.

Great little AUTHENTIC Cuban restaurant over on Surfside. My husband lives for our trips to Florida so he can get REAL Cuban sandwiches made with REAL Cuban bread. He was in eighth heaven after one bite! He also loved the plantains. I love the Chicken...More

Picked up two Cubanos and an side of fried green plantains. Wonderful and authentic food. Two people could split one Cubano and have plenty to eat but they are SO good I would fight somebody for one. It's basically a toasted ham and cheese but...More

The food here is better than the Cuban food I've had in Miami. The tripleta was awesome. The picadillo was top notch. I found myself going back 2 days in a row. It is a must see in Lexington. A hidden gem.

A hole-in-the- wall with great food and great owners. The sandwiches look incredible. Ask for them "toasted" with pil and salt rub! The beef dishes were well spiced, not too hot but well-integrated flavor. Prices are cheap. Restaurant is NOT fancy!

This little place is delicious! Authentic. The couple that owns it is precious. They do all the cooking and baking. It is a tad bit slow, but so worth it!
