wouldn't think it but Bricktops at Waterside has good ribs. also roasted chicken.
for cuban would try World Cafe on Pine Ridge near 951 --all the Cubans i know go there. if you'd like to expand to Peruvian there's Inca's Kitchen and he also revamped his place and its much more open and looking like a rest instead of a lunch place trying to be a rest.

Finally made it to Fernandez the Bull, at their new location on Immokalee. I was disappointed they didn't have their liquor license yet as I can't imagine having Cuban food without a mojito. The license arrives on Monday.
I was there for dinner so decided against their famous sandwich but had a wonderful Lechon Asado-slow roasted marinated pork. The meat was delicious, especially the crispy skin. It came with a smokey, flavorful black bean soup, non-descript yellow rice(there were other choices), and a bland house salad(again, I could've ordered differently).
Fernandez was working the room and was quite friendly. I wish them well in their new location.

Thank you for the recommendation - my wife and I hit Fernandez the Bull on Airport for lunch today and were delighted to see both law enforcement officers and trial lawyers eating there - told us it was a great value/great food kind of place. We had the croquettas with the hot sauce, and split a cuban sandwich and a roasted pork plate. Food was first rate all across. My iced tea was kept full and my wife enjoyed her sangria. Price seemed low for the quality of food - it was our cheapest meal here, and one of the best. Fernandez was working the room. Wow, were we glad we went.
thanks, always good to have a current review of some of our favorite oldies...now that many of our winter visitors have left, I can just feel the "I-need-a-Cuban-sandwich-jones" coming on, not just from me, but from our entire dept. at work--field trip likely coming up pretty soon.
Fernandez de Bull on Airport Road for Cuban open for lunch and dinner. Their Cuban sandwiches are da bomb...make sure you ask for some of their hot sauce on the side.
Swan River on U.S. 41 (Tamiami Trail N) is great for fresh seafood; Randy's Fish Market further north on U.S. 41 is also very good...had lunch there today and the blackened Mahi sandwich with Bleu Cheese sauce was excellent for $8.95, came with either potato salad or french fries and the potato salad is quite good...not sugary slop from the grocery store. DON'T order the conch chowder...there's no conch in it that we could find at all...it's all mushrooms...blech! If it hadn't been my birthday, I would have complained or at least pointed it out to the server that they should not try to call it conch chowder...ever. But the fish was very fresh in that sandwich and a nice large portion of it.
