Good Cuban Sandwich on LI?

After seeing Howie try to attempt this on Top Chef (I haven't seen this week's yet, so no spoilers please!) and remembering a place in Chelsea that had them in the window, my pregnant brain has decided we must have one.

Any suggestions on where I can get a good one??

      Yes, that is pretty good. Only been to the Westbury one. Love the place, very nice people, solid food. The chicken and avocado pannini is tremendous. I like the option of black bean soup instead of fries, too.

      1. Laguna Grille in Westbury has the best Cuban Sandwich.
        1610 Old Country Road off Post/Merrick Avenue
        The food is excellent - great Cuban Restaurant

          Hmmm...not too off topic, the chicken and avocado sandwich is also top notch.

            GRINGO ALERT!

            Just came back from the Laguna grille. While if I were comparing it to Subway, this was a good Cubano. Being a gringo myself, I have the good fortune of marrying into a latino family. And one f the benefits is going to REAL spanish restaurants. This is a place for folks that get a little shaky when they hear los palabras en espanol. You folks are really missing out.

              I really don't want to miss out. Where do you go?
