Phoenix New Times's Description
This family-owned restaurant in Chandler serves up classic Cuban comfort foods in a cheery, pleasant atmosphere and with service as friendly as the fare. For a snack or a light meal, try the empanadas or a medianoche sandwich (similar to the Cuban, but with sweet, eggy, challah-like bread). Exceptional entrees include the Cuban roast pork dish, lechon asado, lightly sweet picadillo criollo (Cuban-style hash), and the classic ropa vieja. End the meal with a shot of café Cubano and lightly fried and twisted pastries in an anise-laced syrup called bunuelos cubanos. For planners who call ahead, dishes of paella valenciana and arroz con pollo a la chorrera (soupy chicken and rice), which require one to two hours of preparation, are worth the wait.
Tips from foursquare
Bonita Tequila is now available at Mimita's Cuban Cafe. You can now enjoy a glass of the world's finest tequila as you sit back and relax with some salsa and merengue music.
Delicious Mojitos, the Cuban sandwich and Ropa Vieja were also fabulous
Awesome food and service!
The Mojitos are to die for!!!! All the servers are AMAZING, they make the outing! Great quality food. We're Puerto Rican so coming here is as close as it is to moms home cooking!! LOVE the place. !
