Cuban sandwich near Miami Airport

phatface Sep 21, 2009 02:26 PM

We are driving from Ft Laud to Miami airport. I NEED a REAL Cuban sandwich (or three) to get on the plane with.
I lived on Calle Ocho for a long time, so I know what's good, but haven't crawled the streets for a long time, so I don't know where.
I assume we'll drive south on 95 to a west on the expressway and down LaJuene.
As an aside, I went to Versailles a while back and the food is still reliably just OK, no great shakes. We eat at Padrinos near University and the food is OK, but the sandwiches leave alot to be desired.
Any good take out hole in the wall is great as long as it is not far off the route.

    the Cuban at the cafeteria inside the airport is actually not bad if you run out of time.

      El Caribe Cafe at 3953 N.W. 7th Street, it's right off of LeJeune.
