Just got in from NY yesterday and luckily found this small friendly restaurant for a late lunch. The food was awesome. We had a great meal and spent time getting to know Karina (sp?) and her chef husband. A little off the beaten track but well worth finding it.

We went for lunch and split a Cuban sandwich and each ordered our own sides (salad, fries). There was lots to eat. It was all very good. The coffee was the best I've had in our 5 week stay in Florida. The service......excellent...fast and friendly. The clientele was varied: old, young, working, retired. Our eating experience at Abuela's Kitchen was very positive. We would visit again and we did recommend Abuela's to our friends. Great Job!

Came here after a gymnastics meet with 2 other families. The place is in a strip mall and very small so we kinda took it over. Special today was the flank steak, and oh my was it AMAZING! $15.95 came with two sides and grilled marinated vegetables. It was enough for two to share. The only suggestion is to ask for your steak cooked one step more than you like it usually as their med-rare was actually walking off the plate,but the waitress warned us and even offers to cook it some more, which we accepted and it was perfect the next time. We also ordered a 1/2 Cuban sandwich, and an appetizer of ham croquettes, a tamale and fried yucca. All were perfectly cooked. Living in SW Florida I have had my share of Cuban restaurants, this is definitely worth the drive!
