About: Flaco's has been serving authentic Cuban food since 2006. It offers a laid back atmosphere and is open late for anyone out on the town.

Review: Flaco's has a plain, modest interior with great food. The bread makes their sandwiches. After trying the Cuban, Cuban Gator, Scar Face and the pollo picante, I can say I liked them all.

I won't venture to say the food is out of this world, but it was memorable, and I can't wait to go back.
