I grew up in Tampa and am an expert on Cuban/Spanish cuisine and without a doubt Madrid is the only resturant in Jacksonville that even comes close to getting it right. It is well worth trying out, you will not be sorry. Everything they served was very good.

Mad Jack's is the best food we have ever had. Get ready for generous portions, tender meats, incredible baked beans finished off with fried strawberries. Yes, strawberries! They are surrounded by chocolate batter and fried and are amazing. Your taste buds will be delighted. The prices are quite reasonable too.

We first visited this restaurant more than twenty years ago, and kept returning. The food might have been a little better in the beginning when the founder, a man named Jorge was running things and his wife was doing the cooking, but they had to retire due to failing health and the restaurang changed hands. That being said, many of... More

We ordered a half-carafe and poured six glasses from it. We tried the arepitas and they were scrumptious - better than we make at home. The service was prompt, polite,... More

I use to come here alot when I lived in Jacksonville. Came back to Jax and was craving Madrid's. Things have changed. New ownership. There is a lack of atmosphere and a HUGE lack of customer service, unless you speak Spanish. We ordered the Tequenos, which were still wonderful. The Caldo Galleo soup was more broth than ingredients, but was... More

This was my third visit to Madrid, which says something in itself. Anything the Madrid lacks in atmosphere, which is admittedly basic, is made up for by its generous portions of attractive tasty food. The chicken dishes (fricassee and con arroz) were both absolutely delicious. The fricassee was nicely stewed with a few veggies over rice. The arroz con pollo... More
