I love this place. Went today on day off of school with the kids after jungle island.
All the little sandwiches very tasty. Would love to come with adults for 10 bottles of beer for $15 on Friday night. Would REALLY love to come with anyone on Wednesday when everything is a DOLLAR!?
This isn't too near home (aventura), but it is set to grow like a cancer (see story in South Florida Business Journal):
100 Montaditos is making big inroads into the U.S., with South Florida serving as ground zero for its expansion efforts.
The Madrid-based fast-casual restaurant chain, which has more than 200 locations in Spain, is expected to open its second location at 1502 Washington Ave. in Miami Beach later this month. Its first location is in the Shops at Midtown in Miami.
100 Montaditos sells tapas-size sandwiches – about 4-and-a-half inches long – that cost from $1 to $3, depending on what’s inside. Offerings include everything from peanut butter and jelly to duck mousse with minced olives. Salads, appetizers, beer and wine are also on the menu.
Chris Barney, a broker with High Street Retail USA in Miami, has been working with the company on its expansion plans. He has signed a lease in the Fountains, at 801 S. University Drive in Plantation. Another is set to open in Pembroke Lakes Square, at 11007 Pines Blvd. in Pembroke Pines, and 100 Montaditos is also taking space at 230 Miracle Mile in Coral Gables where Baja Fresh is located, but will be closing.

re: non sequitur
They've already got 200+ shops in Spain so I don't think it's going to suffer much from expansion here in the US. It's not incredibly high quality stuff but it's decent and fun and probably very easy to duplicate. Would be glad to see one in the Gables on Miracle Mile, though Copas y Tapas down the street does some very fine montaditos themselves already.

Like you said it's not high quality stuff, but it's started go downhill. Previously patatas bravas were made with fresh red potatoes. They've now switched to some ungodly frozen breaded potato logs. I asked what happened and the waitress said they weren't selling so they made a switch. Just then another customer came to pick up her order and she said "Mmmm, those look good." Yep, chalk it up to Miami's culinarians to prefer frozen potato logs. But the place does serve it's purpose of cheap, quick food and drinks.
NS: I wouldn't recommend going on a Wednesday unless (i) you get there early or (ii) you want to relive the dollar drink nights of <<insert your favorite bar from college here>>. In other words, It gets very packed.
Yes, the beers are served in chilled nine-ounce jars.
The place is fun, the sandwiches are simple but good. I'm a sucker for anchovies and there are plenty on the menu. Serrano ham and pulled pork were winners at our table. Also really liked the smoked salmon. I would skip the tortilla espanola - too dry and heavy.
