Late night casual eats between airport & the Keys?

We're arriving at the Miami airport late next Wednesday night and driving to Key Largo, but would love to get suggestions for a quick dinner spot along the way that's open around 10.30pm.

We adore Jamaican food and ideally would like a casual spot that offers great jerk chicken, curry goat, patties, etc. We've enjoyed Jamaican Kitchen in the past but it's not open that late; maybe someplace similar (and perhaps spicier)?

A tasty Cubano or Cuban food would be wonderful as well. We weren't wowed with Versailles but perhaps there are other places (with specific recommendations on dishes) that are good and on the way?

Of course other casual places are welcome, though we'd prefer to have cuisine that isn't very popular in the San Francisco area. Thanks!!

  1. Graziano's on Bird Road is a short distance off 826 (between 826 and the turnpike) on the way down to the Keys. It's an Argentine steakhouse and maybe the most authentic of the ones in South Florida (including a Quebracho wood burning asador and meats grilled over wood). Looks like they are open til 10:30 on Wednesdays, although that may be cutting it close for you.

    1. In the past some folks have recommended a Mexican place or two in Florida City/Homestead... you have to drive within about half mile of at least one of these. Don't recall the name though, and don't know the hours.

      1. Denny's Latin Cafe in Key Largo. Best Cuban sandwich I have ever eaten. Excellent fish, lobster, fish tacos, & ceviche. Also serves dinner, but not sure how late.
