      no no no, the reviewer ASKED for mayo. :-)

      If other people like mayo, that's fine :-) I just can't stand it myself.

      I wonder if any Cincinnati-area roadfooders who have had a truly authentic cuban sandwich (in Florida, most likely) will take a trip on down to this place, check it out, and review it here?

        My wife and I had an excellent Cuban at a little place outside our hotel in Atlanta back in October. I don't know if this qualified as authentic, but we were both impressed. One way or another, we'll find a way to give this one a try.

          Hey, TJ, I just read the review. I know exactly where it is in OTR. I think it sounds like a great place. When are you going to check it out for yourself?

            I'll try to do so asap, but will need a day off when the wife isn't off to do so.....

              Sounds like a side trip the next time we head to Findlay Market......

              On a more general note, I've been most pleased with the restaurant reviews in CityBeat. Much better than the Enquirer or Cincinnati magazine......

                Sounds like something I'd like to try. Is OTR still considered dangerous? I remember my brother living near there when he was at UC and his roommates getting robbed and their house getting burglarized during their senior architecture finals. I also remember the cop always stationed inside the Skyline near campus. In any case, I never felt uncomfortable walking anyplace in Cincinnati and plan to make the trip soon.

                  Some parts yes, some parts no. I'd always considered it a pretty benign place having spent a lot of time there in college, but lately things have been getting increasingly worse. Clifton is no picnic anymore either, which has kept us from trying several places up there. I'd think you'd be okay for a lunch visit, but I'd be wary about venturing beyond the crowd zone after sundown. I've always heard it said that Cincinnati is five to ten years behind the rest of the country, and in this case it seems to be proving true.

                    Agreed about lunchtime vs dinnertime in that area....please note that the hours for this place are lunch only (11a-3p)

                    A lot of places downtown Cincinnati are open only for lunch because of this overall "dont be downtown after dark" (except in theater district) problem
