    This place keeps me sane and reminds me what good Latin home-cooking tastes like.

    I order from here on a regular basis. Food is consistently excellent. Ropa is stewed for hours, sauce is rich, goes well over rice with either red or black beans. Very economical and the staff is friendly. Meals come out quick. Smoothies are delicious and inexpensive.

    I hadn't been in for lunch at Mi Apá in a while, so I decided to bring my sister who is visiting from Tennessee. The food is just as I remember - outstanding Cuban fare. We loved it. Even though it was VERY busy, our server was very attentive. Great lunch for a fantastic price! Thanks!

    "This is one of my favorite restaurants in Gainesville! Every time I come home to visit, I have it stop by. My favorite things on the menu are the beef empanadas, plantain chips, & tres leches. Their espresso is among the best as well. Amazing non-expensive food and amazing service - what more could you ask for!?"

    "Awesome Cuban food in Gainesville! Yes, you read that right. Get the Picadillo, shredded beef, or the roast pork (or anything else they make!). Tasty, moist meat. Delicious sides: boiled yucca with mojo sauce, morros, fried plantains. Wish they served alcohol, but maybe they'll add mojitos in the future. Excellent prices ($7 to $8 bucks a plate) and HUGE portions. You will be glad you went there!"

    "They have breakfast, lunch, and dinner! And all the food is amazing. Their prices are really affordable, which is awesome for college students. Their meals come with a lot of food and I usually have leftovers. I usually get the egg breakfast and cafe con leche and the chicken and rice with yucca and mojo and sweet plantains. They can get busy and they have a drive thru which is convenient!"

    "Been going there for years. Gets better every time. Clean fast and friendly. Vacation frita is the best. The only thing they do not have is a sampler plater. Being Cuban I know what I like but lots of people don't and it would be great to create a sampler so that you would be aware of all the great food available there"
