I used to go here all the time when I lived in Vegas. They're on the seedier end of the strip but the place is definitely worth a visit. The picadillo is awesome. And so is the bistec palamillo. I'm drooling just thinking of the place.

This is my favorite Cuban restaurant in Las Vegas. I've been to all the others, especially the more commercial ones like Florida Cafe and Havana Grill, and while they are much better in terms of atmosphere and service, their food is also commercialized, which defeats the purpose of eating at a Cuban restaurant. This place is a small, hole-in-the-wall, where ordering in Spanish is the norm and you'll find more Cubans eating here than anywhere else. Having been raised on Cuban food made by my grandmother, a Cuban immigrant, this is the restaurant that comes closest to making food just like hers. I always get bistec empanizado/palomilla, no matter where I go, and while it is a simple entree, this restaurant serves it perfectly. I can't speak for other items on the menu, but I am sure they are similar in quality. The staff is friendly, and even more so if you actually speak in Spanish with them. Being in there reminds me of being at home.

Pros: authenticity of food

Cons: nothing that I can think of!

My husband and I had cuban sandwhiches, and the inside of the bread was soggy. The outside could have been crisper too. There was way more ham then pork, but the sandwich was HUGE for $5.50. The avocado salad was great! I asked for "tostones", which are suppose to be fried green plantians, but theirs must not have been very green, because they were sweet. The mojo was decent. They serve soda in a can. so if you want a refill, you have to pay for another soda.

Pros: Quick service, Good prices, Good portions

Cons: Canned drinks

This restaurant is very unassuming inside and out. It is located next to a tatoo shop. The menus are one page and are underneath the glass cover on the tables. It's simple.

The food, however, is to die for. I recommend the pork chop and steak with sauteed onions (bistek palomilla). Both dishes are under $10.

Remember to greet the owner. You will easily recognize her as she usually sits at a table by the cash register and looks at you as you are entering her establishment.

You will enjoy the large panoramic photograph of Cuba. Enjoy!
