Need help to find the place? Just follow the busload of tourists who frequent the Cuban restaurant daily. Locals dine at El Pub, too, though not as often as out-of-towners in search of an authentic Cubano in Little Havana. The rest of the menu is pretty standard to traditional Latin joints in the area—think lots of rice dishes, a variety of stews and lots of pork.

El Pub is a local favorite. SOME of the tourists eat there, most of them just wander in and stare like they're at a zoo. Anyone who actually goes to El Pub for more than writing a half-assed review will know that they've served both people new to the area and multiple generations of long-time locals. You cannot name-drop the Cubano and then describe the rest of the menu in one sentence. Coming from someone who has been eating there for a majority of their life, Virginia's review makes the restaurant out to be mediocre and as if it's sole existence is the novelty of Cuban culture.
