Situated directly beneath a Metromover stop, this homey little Cuban diner is busy at all times of day. In the wee hours of the morning, you can catch a whiff of strong coffee floating out of the large ventanilla, as patrons gather beneath the grubby blue awning to chat about the day's headlines before dispersing to work. At lunch, the din rises to a near-screaming level as the closely packed wooden tables adorned with paper mats fill up to capacity. The Cuban sandwich ($5.50) - filled with overflowing layers of ham, roasted pork, and greasy, toasted bread - appears to reign supreme. A close second would be the other sandwich variations that pay homage to the establishment's most frequent customers: the tax collector's tuna melt (tuna on rye with melted cheese at $4.95), the bailiff's choice (turkey, ham and swiss at $5.50), and the downlower (turkey, roast beef, bacon, and cheddar in an, er, secret tryst for $5.95). For heartier appetites, there's a usual offering of traditional Cuban dishes such as palomilla steak ($9.50) and fried pork chop ($9.25), served with sides of morros and platano maduro. There's also an extensive breakfast menu available for early-morning diners.
