Westword's Description

Kristy Socarras Bigelow, who opened Cuba Cuba in the heart of the Golden Triangle in 2001, is a poster child for the American Dream. A Cuban-American from Miami whose family didn’t allow her to go to college – “Cuban moms are strict,” she explains – and who had little restaurant experience, she decided to create a Cuban-influenced eatery in two little conjoined Victorian houses. The colorful Cuba Cuba quickly became a seductive hot spot, a go-to place for strong mojitos, fried plaintain chips and big plates of roast pork, along with other dishes based on her family’s recipes. A decade later, Socarras Bigelow opened a fast-casual sandwich-shop spinoff in Boulder: Cuba Cuba Sandwicheria. A third spot, a new and improved Cuba Cuba Sandwicheria, opened in 2013 in Glendale’s CitySet development – and there are plans for more. “Every neighborhood needs Cuban cuisine,” says Socarras Bigelow. And so far, Denver diners clearly agree.

    Coming from Miami as a native I know Cuban food. And I cannot say enough about Cuba Cuba Sandwicheria! We were greeted before we could open the door, we talked like we were long lost family (She's from Miami too!), and once the food came I thought I had died and gone to Heaven. We drove from Brighton and will be doing so many more times to come.
