Sabor Latino- Central American/Cuban Smithfield NC

I haven't been; just came across an article about it in La Conexión. Their "Buena Onda" column is often a good source for leads on Latin American options in NC.
The article is in Spanish and while I can't translate the whole thing, it lists Cuban coffee, licuados, baleadas, pollo frito con yuca, chicharrón con yuca, tacos, pescados y mariscos, carne asada as being on the menu.
2710 South Bright Leaf Blvd., Smithfield NC
This sounds interesting, I have business in Smithfield later this week, hopefully I can give them a try.
I did drive by to see where it is. It is further south on Bright Leaf (301/96) than the Compare grocery, but on the same side of the road - west. It is a free standing building, looks like an older style mini-mart. I'd say it is about half way between the two I-95 exits.
I drove by around 6:30 - 7 pm. They were open, but no customers. The sign advertised $3.99 lunch specials. Looks like the restaurant aspect is part of a little market. I suspect lunch is busier. Hoping to have a chance to try it in the future.
