Cuban -> Driving from FLL to Miramar

Hi - I would like to stop for Cuban food for dinner while driving from Ft Lauderdale-Hollywood airport to Miramar (Red Road). It will be a Monday night and I land at 7pm so would need to be a place that stays open until 10 or later. Does not need to be fancy. Thanks!

  1. I can only speak to what's in Miramar as I don't know the FLL area all too well. The only cuban we have around here is La Carreta. It's your standard cuban fare. Nothing spectacular, but if you're looking for simple cuban food, it'll do the trick. There's a Las Vegas in the Pines area, which is another local chain, but I have found them to be sub-par.

    I've heard good things about Nando's around the Hallandale area, but I can't recommend them first-hand.

      Nando's,in Hallandale, is a decent Italian restaurant. Padrino's -- next door to Nandos on Hallandale Beach Boulevard -- is the flagship of the Padrino's restaurants, and a solid, family style Cuban restaurant. They are open 'til 10 Monday thru Thursday, and until 10:30 on Fridays and Saturdays.

      It's Cuban food is like Mama used to throw at Papi!

        I meant Padrino's. Thanks for correcting.
