Most places in the area incorporate a lot of different spanish countries into their cuisine.. One restaurant could have Puerto Rican owners and be cooking a combo of Portugese, Cuban and Peruvian food. Alvarez i think keeps it pretty much too cuban food.. They serve oxtail to seafood. I especially like their sandwiches; steak, cuban, roast pork, spanish sausage, and the carne ripiada.. All really good..There steak sandwich in which they put french’s onion rings under the bread before the grill press it is excellent too!

Sandwiches ready to go for lunch:

Grilled Cuban with a Mamey Shake will set you back a whole 7 bucks.. The bread here is just wonderful.. Call me crazy but, I love to have a little pool of red vinegar on my plate to dip..
