Miami New Times' Description

This place is about as American barbecue as Celia Cruz is Bobby Flay, but the food ain't malo. Ribs are neatly glazed and not too sweet, with a tang all their own. In fact, you can actually smell the distinct smoky aroma as soon as you get out of the car and walk toward this Christmas tree-light adorned log cabin on Calle Ocho. Inside, sit at a picnic table topped with a paper towel roll in an environment that includes photos of Rita Hayworth, Mae West, and Liberace. We suggest ditching the menu and just ordering the Argentine-inspired mixed grill ($27.99). Served on a wooden cutting board, it comes with five baby-back ribs, a quarter barbecue chicken that's moist and tender, a hunk of churrasco (with a side of chimichurri, of course), garlic sausage, and tasty blood sausage. Sides include Latin staples such as sweet plantains, black beans, and rice, with coleslaw and baked beans thrown into the mix. And if you arrive on a Saturday or Sunday around 5 p.m., expect to see many whole cerdos being grilled, so prepare to pig out.

    This place has been here forever. It changed hands a few years ago and became much more Hispanic. For decades, however, this was the only old school southern BBQ place around. Still tasty though.

    As far as the food, I've had better and I've had worse. The service is horrible. In my opinion, don't eat here

    Place is under new mgt removing some of the items. Going back to its roots!!!

    Bad service and sad food. Do NOT visit this joint. I thought it was a "Cracker Barrel" style restaurant but its just a low quality cuban place, you can go anywhere else for better Cuban food.

    Great lunch! Can't go wrong with any lunch item, the waitresses all work together and are very easy on the eyes.
