I don’t go to Luis Galindo’s Latin American nearly as much as my parents do. I’ve been here once with them but mostly I’ve gotten take out which has traveled surprisingly well. All your favorite Cuban dishes are here.

The bread served as a precursor to your meal is worth getting greedy over. The steaks are great, particularly their breaded steak. I lean towards the Bistec de Pollo a la Milanesa (breaded chicken steak, tomato sauce, ham & cheese), which is probably the best I’ve ever had, and I’ve had quite a few in my time (keep your jokes to yourself please).
|Luis Galindo’s Croqueta’s|
The Croquetas are pretty good also. My mother loves the chicken and my dad, the sandwiches. The Cuban Sandwich Especial (same ingredients as a Cuban sandwich only larger: thick sliced pork & ham, swiss cheese, mustard and pickles on toasted cuban bread) here is a must have.

Galindo’s recently added a Frita to their menu that my parents swear by. I tried it and thought it was pretty good.

It does get full around dinner time which is why I order take-out. If you can stand the wait, nothing beats eating the food right there. Oh yeah, this place is small and loud, ear plugs are required unless you want to listen in on the goings on in your neighbor’s life, which might not be such a bad way to pass the time.
