Just had dinner at this local favorite. Authentic, genuine Cuban food, reasonably priced with a lovely staff. Lots of parking. Try the Ropa Vieja and the roast chicken. The vaca frita is sometimes available as a moth-watering special and the seafood is fresh.

Best coffee around! Croquettás were delicious. We had breakfast there several times and it was just what we needed. Nothing fancy, but done well. Eggs, grits, omelettes etc. and great buttery Cuban bread.

My wife and I have earn in El Mucho's a hundred times and is alway excellent! It is hot, very tasty and home prepared. Marlainis and her husband are the owners but Marlainis is the boss and she will tell you so. My wife and I are not of spanish decent so we fumble a little. Most items on the menu are in both english and spanish though. We have had a variety of meals there and all have been better than outstanding. A year or so they expanded to have a dining room and now a market with all kinds of goodies, drinks and fruits. Very fresh! They also cater! Try it you'll like it!
