How can anybody give them ANY stars? The system won't let me give them zero stars! Can't believe the comment "the food was actually really good". Are you serious?
Canned black beans, man! That's sacrilegious! They would hang an owner in

When I initially entered the place I liked the music and overall atmosphere. I asked to see the menus so I could take it out to my wife to see if she wanted to eat here. They didn't have any menu's except for what they posted up on their

I agree that the service has declined progressively this past year. They're often out of Cuban bread and how can you have a cuban restaurant without the bread! \r

Back to Cuba has a laid back vibe, cuban music, and authentic food. I always get the Churasco Skirt Steak which comes with plantains, black beans, rice, and bread. They have a great juice selection as well. Passion Fruit is my favorite!

I've eaten here a handful of times. The service has gotten progressively worse each time...

My last visit was so horrible that I will never go back. My friend and I waited for 45 minutes for our food and it never arrived. We finally decided to just leave, and as we were walking away the owner came running up to us and accused us of leaving without paying! Not going to pay for food that I never got. Also, the owner did not offer to make things right - she blamed it on a new waitress.

I'll never go back. Its nothing special, and is definitely not worth the horrible service... If you are in the area, check out Mama Mia's instead (it is amazing Italian food).

The Lechon Asado is awesome. I've taken several first timers there and they all love the Lechon. The Cuban sandwich is great too. Be sure to get an order of sweet fried plantains. The owner is very nice and the staff very friendly.

i drive and hour and a half out of my way to eat here. The best Cuban sandwich i've ever had in my life is from BTC. They are a favorite dish of mine, and i order them whenever theyre on a menu in hopes that I'll finally find a place, outside of Jersey City, NJ or Miami, FL,, that makes them perfect.
FOUND IT!
also.. the toastones, plantains and the Miami sandwich are great. and try the Carnitas next time you can. so good.

Pros: the food, the price

Cons: not much

The food at BTC sure tastes great, but today as I came close to finishing my Picadillo plate, I found a meatball-sized hunk of raw hamburger. And this was after the lunch rush, not right after they opened. If I go back I will stick to the steak from now on - they cook it while you wait.

Pros: Black beans & rice, plantains

Cons: Anybody got a meat thermometer there?

Food is authentic and good. The place is a dump. I was expeciting table service, but I guess you either shout out your order or go to the counter. A little remodeling, cleaning and hiring a server could really improve this place. I would bring a date if they just made the place a little nicer. oh yeah, I went one night at 8 and they were closing...........said it was slow so they closed. Another time I went on Sunday.............they were closed! I gess it would be smart to call before you drove 40 miles like I did.

I have eaten at BTC many times and the quality is second to none. The music and decor make you feel as if you are in Havana and the food is always top notch. I highly reccomend this cafe.

Pros: Everything

Cons: N/A

One of the things I like is you can call ahead and order and then when you get there your order is wating for you. The food is so good, I crave it, lol. One thing I can say and anyone who has eaten there can agree, they are not stingy with their portions. You get plenty to eat. I hope they stay 4-ever because this little dive is the BOMB!

I've had similar meals at other restaurants in Houston and Miami and the food at Back To Cuba Cafe was up to par with the good restaurants in those cities. I had the Churrasco plate with beans, rice and plantains. The portions were large and the service was good. I recommend this restaurant and I will be back for more.

This is an order at the counter sort of restaurant with a casual decor. The food was wonderful and the service was very friendly. We played chess in the front window while we waited for the food. I ordered the Churrasco (marrinated skirt steak with fresh veg on top) and highly recommend it, it comes with black beens, rice, and fried plantains. Can't wait to go back with friends!

After a few days in Nashville, visiting our daughter in college, and having experienced some of the best places in town, I was ready for some Caribbean food. I'm from Puerto Rico so it could be puertorrican or cuban food, I wanted some home cooking. I found this ad in one of the local guides talking about some great food and great service. I read three reviews and had to go there. Let me tell everyone that if you come to Nashville and miss this place, you have missed some incredible cooking. This is a small place, about eight/nine tables, which is great. Once you get in, you know exactly where you are, two things will give it away. On you right you will find a pair of congas with some other percussion instruments, and on your left you will find the ever present domino table. This is a very ,and I mean very, clean place. No food odors at all, no grease smell, no smoke, no fumes. You would never think that you were in a restaurant. We were greeted with a smile and a genuine desire to serve. Orders were delivered promptly, and all our questions were answered. We had some "lechon" and some cuban sandwiches. The Flan was outstanding and of course the cuban coffee was out of this world. It really took me back to the times that you could really enjoy some great food, great conversation and great family time. We were treated to some pastries on the house . We loved them so much, that we bought some to bring home. I wil recommend this place to everyone. Do not leave Nashville without visiting this place.

I was in the neighborhood and went here for the first time. WOW!!! Not only is the food delicious (do not put hot sauce on it as it is perfectly seasoned on its own), but also portions are generous. The couple next to me ordered extra beans & rice (not Mexican, but whole black beans in a sauce and nutty white rice) and shared a lunch. I ordered picadillo, which is ground beef cooked with potatoes, some veggies and green olives. It was cooked as I waited and came steaming hot with beans, rice and a generous helping of lightly fried plaintains. There's no liquor license but you can BYO.

I first tried Latin American food in RTP, NC a year ago and loved it. Since then, I've hoped to find a restaurant here in Nashville that served something similar to what I tasted there. I visited Back to Cuba Cafe for the first time at lunch today, and was very impressed. The menu is limited, but the food was fantastic! They do now accept credit/debit cards, and I paid with VISA today. I had a steak dish that came with plantains, black beans and rice and can find no fault with any of it! I also ordered an espresso for a friend and a cafe latte for myself, both of which were impressive. I will be back very soon!

My boyfriend and I went to the Back to Cuba Cafe one afternoon, really not hoping for much. We had heard a little about it and decided to try it. My boyfriend comes from a Cuban family, and we figured the restaurant could not even closely compare to home-cooking. We were so wrong! The food was just amazing. My boyfriend said it even looked like the food his grandmother cooked. The family working there was also incredibly sweet. The only thing we found not perfect was that they only accept cash! Everything was just great!!
