Off the beaten path but worth the trip for a good cuban sandwich. Loved the plantains and the guava pastry was a treat too. Will go back again to try more of their specialties.

Our first trip here. Excellent food with friendly service. Highly recommend. Plan to go back soon. Consider ordering the big Cuban sandwich and splitting it.

Terrific Cuban food in this tiny location. The staff was friendly and helpful and the menu offered many traditional options. The pulled pork sandwich was delicious as were the chicken empanadas. Service was quick and the prices were reasonable. Well worth a trip!

We split the large Cuban sandwich and tried the potato bomb and plantains all were delicious. It was obviously home cooked Cuban food.

Marinated pork was terrific. Maduros are must haves & the best we've ever tasted!!! Pictured: chicken ropa vieja, marinated pork, black beans & rice, maduros, and guava cream cheese empanada.

My husband loves this place. Any time I am in Maryville I have to pick him up a Cuban combo with black beans and rice. I must admit I love it too! Give it a try!

We went here based on reviews here. We arrived about 7:40; they close at 8:30 and only serve takeout after 7:30. This was fine with us but sandwiches were only okay. My Cuban was dry and the pork barbecue was not very "barbecue" tasting. We...More
