801 S. University Drive Plantation, FL 33324 | Davie/West Hollywood | 954-476-5777

Location Description:

One of the oldest Cuban restaurants in our area, family-owned Padrino’s has been successful enough to open four branches, the northernmost one in Orlando. The simple, brightly lit décor is more Denny’s than Little Havana, and while the expansion hasn’t necessarily improved the food, there’s still good chow at bargain prices here. Our favorites include the papas rellenos, mashed potatoes stuffed with ground beef, peppers, and olives and lightly breaded and fried; a warm bowl of caldo gallego, white bean soup with ham, potatoes, and collard greens; and Cuban pot roast fragrant with herbs and tomato sauce. Also available at this Plantation outpost: ropa vieja, churrasco steak, picadillo, and arroz relleno.
