Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in BB Approved, Dade County, Hialeah, Kendall, Reviews by Burger Beast, West Kendall, Westchester

Just a few blocks from my parent’s house in Westchester is a Cuban restaurant they frequent, El Rinconcito Latino. There are actually 6 other locations.

Every summer my family rents a home in Marco Island for a week. At some point, normally early on I get impatient and go for a drive through Naples. A year ago I drove by Sandy’s Cuban Cafe with plans to hit it up but it was closed for the day by the time I […]
