I tried the chicken enchiladas for a carryout lunch. The lunch menu enchiladas comes with beans and rice. Really delicious. And really reasonable price. Looking to come back for dinner with the hubs, and a ladies night with friends.

We visited Havana Grill during an anniversary weekend trip to the city. The place small and quaint but the ambiance was fun. Mojitos were wonderful! Especially the coconut. The food was delicious and the service was very attentive.

There is valet parking on weekends for sure. I'm uncertain about during the week. There is a parking garage directly across the street as well.
