Location Description:

Housed in an old Arby's with a huge U-shape counter, this is the chain's original outlet, and here it perfectly combines quantity and quality. Your choices are varied no matter if you're sitting at the counter, the outside dining area, or just picking up something at the ventanita. Hams hang overhead, waiting to become part of the restaurant's standard Cuban sandwich: pork, Swiss cheese, ham, and pickle. At $4.50 it's more than a mouthful. A breaded steak so big it hangs over the platter? It's here. An assortment of sandwiches alongside full meals of fish, beef, and chicken prepared numerous ways? Here. The staff is made up of seasoned pros; if you're a regular, they'll start your order the minute they see you walk in. And the place is known for pouring thick, creamy milkshakes in flavors ranging from vanilla to mamey.
