Great food and great staff. The roast pork is very good and tender. The maduro's are sweet but they are still firm (I hate it when they are mushy). The place gets crowded for lunch so get her early.

This small restaurant tucked into a strip mall produces great Cuban food. Their Vaca Frita is simply amazing! There is not much restaurant seating but the food is worth any wait you may have. Tuesdays are buy one entrée get one free! Try it out....More

Zaza is a solid choice for Cuban food. I visited for lunch recently and had the Vaca Frita with Black Beans, Garlic Brown Rice, and Maduros. The Vaca Frita was tender, garlicky and topped with crisp diced onions.

Yeah, I get that it is a chain restaurant. It doesn't stop them from making you feel at home. Warm smiles, pleasant answers to novice-to-Cuban food questions :) add to the upbeat energy of the place. Sandwiches are generous in portion, pastries are fresh made...More

Our group ordered the Cuban sandwich, vaca frita con queso, empanadas, tostones, black beans & rice, tostones and pastelitos con queso crema. The beef empanadas were the best I've ever had. The pastelitos were perfectly carmelized. Reasonable prices, delicious food, friendly service!

Had the steak sandwich. Meat was tough and kinda dry. It left me with a strong garlicky onion breath. Fries were ok. Everyone says this place is great and the reviews agree - I don't.More
