My wife and I had lunch there September 1 -- Cuban sandwich for her (though I helped her with it), empanadas for me. Very tasty, and we especially recommend the sweet sauce on the table. I spent nine days in Cuba not long ago; the food at Lost Cuban was far superior to anything I had on the island itself.

I am a huge fan of the Cuban Sandwich ❤️ it’s so so good!! The two sauces on the table one hot and one sweet are a must have. I add it to my sandwich and beans. The service is fast and the food is tasty!

We love the Cuban Sandwiches and we usually order the combo with black beans and white rice. Sometimes we get the sweet plantains as well. Food is good and dining area is very casual. If you haven't checked it out yet its worth a visit.

I am new to TripAdvisor so please forgive me if I miss something or am late getting a review in. We stumbled across this little hole in the wall on day biking a few years ago, so we though we would try it out. Since we were biking we shared a dish so as not to be too full to continue our ride. The dish was very flavorful and there really was more than enough for us to share!!! Of course we have returned and not been disappointed

Ordered carry out after a theater show. The restaurant was not very busy at this time but it still took about 25 minutes to receive our food.

After 8PM, the restaurant only serves sandwiches. There is no rice, beans, or anything else from their menu offered.

The Cuban Sandwich was pretty tasty but the Cheesesteak Sandwich wasn't nearly as good.
