In the Ruskin area and found this restaurant using Yelp. Excellent service; nice atmosphere and great Cuban food. Deviled crab was very good!
Another 5 star dining experience. This is the first restaurant I come to when I'm in town. My dinner was delicious, all the staff are really nice and the place is really nice and clean. I had the flan again for dessert which is exceptional. I have one tiny complaint....they were out of their chocolate dessert I'll just have to come back next time I'm in town.
We really love this restaurant. The new location is much nicer. My husband and daughter love the filet, and they have a leg up on La Septima, as they do not prepare the filet that way any longer. We had a little mishap with a spilled drink on one of our guests, but they handled it very nicely and were very attentive. Accidents happen, and it was okay and nice of them to show care. We will be back again soon.
As always a great local eatery that's been around for years finally found themselves in the perfect location! Now offering outdoor seating as well as a full bar! My favorites the olive butter, guava cheesecake, Cuban sandwiches, or deep fried house chips, & Yucca. Since moving to the new location there is a small increase in prices, i'm pretty much stuck on my favorite dish which is the sirloin I always get a salad with the house creamy herb dressing & and I switch up the other side between yellow rice, Spanish beans, yucca, plantains, or a even soup now a favorite!
Fastest service I've ever, ever had at any restaurant. Ingredients in my salad were fresh, the meat perfectly seasoned. My hubby had the stuffed potato ball and black brand with yellow rice, which was also spot on. I'm from Puerto Rico and this place gets my seal of approval. I like the new digs (a renovated bank) much better than the old place. The original hardwood floors with brass nails, plus the black and white pics and wall art made of coat boxes, brings a touch of rustic to the otherwise modern building. Warm decor and nice seating arrangement fits a good amount of people without feeling crowded. We'll definitely be back. Gracias!
Wow! What a gem. We live about 20 minutes away and never knew this existed. Everything we ate was DELICIOUS!! The portions were generous and the food was authentic. The olive butter they serve with the bread is perfect!
Recently (within last 3 months) realized they had moved down the street. The previous location did not have much curb appeal. The new (er) location is much much better.
Getting to the food, it is phenomenal. Have not had a bad experience yet. Highly recommend this place if you are in the mood for Cuban with a twist of Italian cuisine. Worth every penny.
I'll keep this simple: I have lived near the Ybor area for 20 years, so I have tried it ALL. Ybor Grille is the REAL DEAL. Moist, fresh, well seasoned, and authentic. Get the ropa vieja and green beans.... I couldn't get enough.
I was down in Ruskin visiting some friends and we stopped in here. Around 7:15 about a 20 min wait, so we waited at the bar. We each had a cocktail and they were delicious. The bartender also offered us bread while we waited. Super cool people! After we were seated, we got the deviled crab (yum!) and we all ordered the 7th Ave filet with salad and mashed potatoes. Sounds pretty basic, right? It was DELICIOUS!!!! None of us could believe how good the salad, salad dressing (cremier, balsamic blue cheese), steaks, and bread were. Just amazing! Good stuff, we'll be back. I wish these people well.
Great find for excellent Cuban food in the Apollo Beach / Ruskin area!!! Totally worth the drive from Brandon! The Chicken & Yellow Rice and the Mamas Meatloaf were both excellent. Sangria pitchers were a great deal, too! Service was fantastic, as well! The server called everyone at our 8-top by name and the owner stopped by to say hello! Highly recommended!!!!
My husband and I decided to try this place after my mom suggested it. By the outside it doesn't look like much but the inside has a very nice ambiance. Not too fancy but not casual at all. The menu was simple and not overwhelming. We ordered the sangria (a nice touch to have the cinnamon sugar on the rim) and the Cuban bread was delicious with the olive butter. I ordered the Roja vieja (I'm probably butchering the name) it was flavorful and the side of yellow rice and plantains were fabulous! My husband had the daily special of the Mahi Mahi and omg was that amazing! The shrimp and scampi sauce with the yellow rice really brought out the flavor of the Mahi Mahi. They should make that a standard dish! Overall very pleased and we will definitely be back!
