The service was so poor I was made to feel like a second class citizen. The only reason I ordered food was because of the reviews. I love A good Cuban sandwich which I have had many different times at many different restaurants especially in South Florida and the keys. They were version is the worst that I have ever... More

I had a traditional Cuban sandwich that was great! Bollos horrible but maybe you like that? Empanada good too. Colorful, loud, fun, but no place to sit? Outside bench but garbage cans were out. I ate in my car and sandwich was good! Bollos was bad but I am not Cuban so who am I to say.

Recommended by a local, we left the more touristy area to trek here for lunch. Although the sandwiches were good, w/ helpful staff, there was not alot of ambiance and accomodations for eating were a plastic chair outside or a standing table inside.

This neighborhood corner small grocery store and sandwich shop does a brisk business daily. Benches and chairs on the adjoining sidewalks are filled early in the day with patrons ordering Cuban inspired breakfast sandwiches, lunch sandwiches, and side dishes all produced to perfection. They produce the best Cuban sandwiches that I have ever had and these were enjoyed for lunch... More

We ate there for lunch, I had a really good cuban sandwich which I strongly recomend. The downside is that the place itself isn't optimal if you want to eat there.

Tiny bodega and sandwich shop, but the best cuban anywhere, period. Not fast food, they make it while you wait, and it's worth the wait. Go.You're welcome.

We heard about The Five Brothers from locals who frequently eat there. Don't let the tiny size fool you, there are plenty of American & Cuban Dishes to enjoy, including hamburgers or empanadas. Plus you can buy authentic Spanish Olive Oil and other condiments at this micro store! We enjoyed everything we tried and would like to come back for... More

This neighborhood Bodega is great for grabbing a sandwich on Cuban bread for breakfast or lunch, getting a cup coffee or better yet, have a Con Leche. Just a great place.

When you come down the street at 7 am, you will notice a line of cars parked on the side in each direction. As you get closer to this corner market, you will soon notice a lot of locals, men, women, young, old, professionals and tradesmen. When you walk in the door of 5 brothers, you will then know you...
