We're looking for what Chowhounds would call "the best Cuban restaurant in Miami." Any thoughts?

      Hole-in-the-wall or white tablecloths? Different menus, different strengths.

        Luis /galindo's Latin American is my new place for bueno bonito y barato cuisine cubano!

        57th ave red road just south of calle 8 sw 8th st in the mia,. no relation to the old coral way store...I'm still searching for the real story.

        It's a little far from thebeach, but that's ok, avoid rush hours and it's a short ride.

          I'm far from an expert, but when in Miami, I always go to Versailles.....

            'Papo Llega y Pon' World Famous Pan con Lechon Emporium

            17th Ave and 29th Alapattah in the MIA aka Dominican Town

            Don't be fooled though, this institution is 100% cubano VAYA!

              Las Culebrinas. In a so-so area, but really good. Also Lario's (the original on Flagler).

                Las Culebrinas was recommended to us on our last trip to Miami- really sketchy neighborhood but great food. The inside decor is totally unexpected- in a good way- given it's surroundings. I was very pleased and would return again.

                  They have a South Miami location which is not dangerous!
