    Some of the best cheap Cuban eats in SoBe comes from this hole in the wall mom ā€˜nā€™ pop shop. While service is pretty poor and knowing Spanish is a major plus, their food is very authentic and dirt cheap. Cuban sandwich is delicious and huge and only $4.50. The best thing they serve is not on the menu and only regulars know about it (well, now you do too) - their caldo de res ā€“ beef soup. Only $4 and amazing.

    Not only does this place have great food but the people here are so friendly they just made the entire experience worth he trip. i also cannot believe the low prices here for a lunch. I had the pork fajitas with plantains and yes they were so good. I really need to eat more plantains because I think I like them and you just don't see them on menus enough.

    **FAVE SPOT FOR CUBAN HOOD CUISINE IN SOBE**

    Cheap eats, people.

    Cheap Cuban eats.

    Lunch for $6 with a drink? In South Beach?

    YES. Possible. Here.

    We sat at the counter.

    ORDERED:

    *BEEF FAJITAS ($7) - One of their specials, I ordered it with rice and plantains. With many douses of hot sauce, this was a solid meal.

    *CUBAN SANDWICH ($4.50) - My favorite Cuban sandwich. Toasted bread, melted cheese, and two different kids of meats. I was in love.

    *BEEF SOUP ($6?) - Another incredible Cuban dish. Lots of flavor. Potatoes, carrots, the meat fell off the bone, etc. Loved every morsel.

    Service was slow, but we didn't care. We spoke broken Spanish and it was fine.

    No ambiance here. Straight HOOD, but omg, the food was delicious.

    AND CHEAP.

    RECOMMEND.
