My son was visiting from out of town, and he really wanted to get a good Cuban sandwich while he was here. The sandwiches we got were not even on Cuban bread. They didn't have the ingredients of a true Cuban sandwich. Very disappointing.

I have had Cuban sandwiches all over the place. It was ok but not great. I can think of a lot of places with better sandwiches

If you want a great pressed cuban, then you need to go here. Love them, haven't had one in awhile, now I want one. So good, makes your mouth water.

This place is always busy when I go. The Cubans are good but what I really like is the stuffed potatoes. Loaded with hot sauce and I am happy.

I had read some reviews of the various local stops in Plant City, and after eating here last week, I wonder about some of them. From the outside, its obvious that the nature of the establishment you are entering, and that should be a clue as to the level of your expectations. It's an American old world local sandwich shop....

Cuban sandwich was good but the service was terrible. Waited at the counter for 5 minutes before anyone said anything ,Hello was not even said. It took 25 minutes just to get a sandwich. The place is old and dirty, I will not return.

I've always passed by but never stopped in, today I'm REALLY glad I did. It's a little hole in the wall full of flavor and friendly people! The owner Norma is a very warm delightful person she made me feel like family! I will definitely be back!!
