I don’t eat in at Luis Galindo Latin American nearly as much as my parents do. I’ve been here a few times but mostly I get take out. It travels surprisingly well. All your favorite Cuban dishes are here. The Bread served as a precursor to your meal is worth getting greedy over and fighting everyone at your table over. The Palomilla Steak is great, in particularly their Breaded Steak. My favorite dish is 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). 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 Tasted Cuban Bread) here is a must-have.
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, earplugs 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.
Next door is Latin American Bakery & Cafe.
