The food here tastes alright. I think it was a little too pricey. The food was a little bland. If this represents Cuban, then I don't think it represents well.
The food was good. The service was friendly. The Cuban Sandwich is good if a little dry (the mojo sauce helps). The maduros were very good. I would strongly recommend the Havana Grill over the Havana restaurant a little farther down the Buford Hwy.
YUM!!! I've never had a Cuban before but I should hope that they are as good as these. It's right by work, Your taste buds will be happy for a while!! Plus, for the size of the sandwich, it's worth the cash!!
I'm so happy to find a Cuban sandwich restaurant - I was a big fan of the Havana Sandwich Shop and was heartbroken when the place burned and closed last year. The new restaurant is a bit further from town (trying it next) but still on Buford Highway - this restaurant (Havana Grill) is at Northeast Plaza - something the Havana Restaurant lacked has been solved with plenty of seating at the Grill. You still order at the counter - I recommend the Cuban sandwich - get the whole if you have an appetite, with yellow rice and black beans. I also tried the fried chicken empanada. Delicious!
I have lived in the Caribbean and visiting Cuba various times, thus, I am a bit more critical of restaurants that attach "Cuban" or "Caribbean" to their name. Palomillas "Cuban" Restaurant is a OK restaurant, but it is not a "Cuban" restaurant that I would go out of my way to experience, nor one I would recommend. Service was slow, and my lunch was bland (Fish/Moro/fried plantains $10 w/no drink). The meal I was served did not represent the great food that can be found in "Cuban" or "Caribbean" eateries. What was most concerning was that Palomillas Arroz Moro (white rice with Cuban black beans) was flavorless! This is sad, because at the core of a Cuban meals is generally Arroz Moro. Any "Cuban" restaurant that can't ace this dish is like an Italian restaurant that can't make good spaghetti sauce. Palomillas Cuban Restaurant is just OK.
I've been there a couple of times ,and i can tell you food is great!!!.They have "Paella" ,how cool is that and they also serve peruvian (another word for great food)and cuban food.They have chicken ,beef,pork and seafood....it's worth trying it.
