Great food and friendly staff. There isn't a place to dine on site, which is probably a good thing, because their food is the type that you be embarrassed to have other see you eat it in public. Basically, you'd want to eat their subs like a starving ravenous dog. No dainty or classy way to eat the food, Because... More

I always go and get the black beans and rice with a Cuban pork. It's a 9 inch Styrofoam clamshell stuff to over flowing. It's only $10. I get four meals out of it. Service is fast and friendly. They are always so nice. It is cash only. They have an ATM.

... and delicious too. Mainly take-out, and don't be in a hurry. They have a couple of table outside, but you are sitting out on the street. It gets really crowded at lunchtime, and a lot of people call-in their orders, but it seems to me like they wait just as long ... but the wait is worth it.

This is a low-key, hole-in-the-wall place with only two tables. Delicious food, generous portions, great service. You might want to share your sandwich!

This may not be the best Cuban sandwich I've ever had but it is the largest. An almost 12" Cuban roll is considered the "small" size. I am a Cuban purist so in some aspects this was disappointing. It was not really pressed because it was pilled so high with mounds of ham and roast pork. There were no pickles... More

This place is amazing. They make beans and rice the way the good Lord intended beans and rice to taste. A little too peppery for my wife but I think it's amazing. As well if you get the pulled pork or chicken, It's only $10 and it is a Ton Of food. I highly recommend it. I almost never went... More

Have lived in the Historic Kenwood neighborhood for four years now and we didn't even know this place existed! Being Cuban American in know good food when I see and taste it... Amazing! The portions are over the top and the service really, really down to earth and unpretentious. You can't really eat there but it's great for take out.... More

This is a very small mom and pop type of establishment. Their phone rings off the hook and there are always lines out the door for good reason! The food is amazing! I have never had one bad thing. The portions are enough for multiple people.

This little mom and pop deli may look like a whole in the wall, but no trip to St. Petersburg is complete without it. Don't be discouraged by appearances...this place is about the food, not the look. Our family favorite is the Cuban, no veggies and Black beans with rice. When we order from Simply Delicious we usually take it... More
