An unassuming little spot along the road where you place your order at the counter then find a seat in the small dining area to wait - not a long time - for someone to bring your food to you. Threre's a menu board on the wall behind the counter, but don't overlook the hot food in the steam table at the other end of the room. And if you're not sure what the food is called, it's OK to point at whatever looks good. Map.
I stopped in recently and had the pernil, or roast pork shoulder. They referred to it on a hand-written specials menu board as pulled pork, but this wasn’t like what you’d find in your basic barbeque joint.

So, Rolando had to change the name, which is just as well because you really don't want to have a restaurant named Number Two for a variety of reasons.
All the Cuban favorites are here, including ropa vieja and carne asada. Whatever you have, be sure to get the black beans and rice to go with it.
