Panna Cafe Express (Weston, Doral, Hollywood)

***** Panna Express Cafe, 2620 Weston Road, Weston, Florida 33331, (954) 217-6907.

What a great idea…put a”fast food” joint with a Latin Flair– with limited seating in a gas station/car wash. Sounds real appetizing doesn’t it? Trust me, old Jeff Eats was on the same page as you guys, until I tried Panna Cafe Express in Weston. By the way, in addition to the Weston outpost, there are two other Panna joints one in Doral and one in Hollywood.

At this stage of the proceedings you can check www.pannacafe.com for
menu/prices/sundry items.

Let me make this one short and to the point…Panna Cafe Express is a “homerun”…The joint has a menu loaded with breakfast stuff, salads, wraps, subs, burgers, baked goods, empanadas, cachitos. A recent “outing” had me trying…1/2 lb cheeseburger/french fries/beverage ($8.49), tuna salad wrap ($6.59), beef empanada (2-$1.49), turkey sub ($8.49)…now, I may be going out on a limb here, but the burger was as good as the ones I get at Five Guys. The wrap and sub were delicious–same goes for those beef empanadas.

The beautiful thing here…tank of gas, upscale car wash, great food.

The Weston location is open 24 hours a day/7 days a week. Hollywood is open Sunday-Thursday 6am-midnight and Friday-Saturday 4am-midnight. Doral is open Monday-Wednesday 6am-midnight, Thursday-Saturday 6am-4am and Sunday 8am-10pm.

    Jeff, Look at this great review I found on YELP!

    Like a mirage in the desert or an old wives tale, I spent a long, drunken ride in my friend’s car hearing about the wonders of your provisions (found within a gas station shop) curious as to when I would actually come face to face. About 45 minutes later, we made it here after an evening at the White Room, and I could almost jump for joy when I saw the menu. From burgers to hot dogs, and even empanadas, there was definitely something for everyone, and then some…

    Exhausted, starving, and ecstatic that I didn’t have to drive, I was ready to get into a cheeseburger and pass out. My friend and I took a couple of minutes to figure out what we wanted on our burgers, but I finally ordered mine with all kinds of random goodies- provolone, bacon, onions, ketchup & mustard. Not too long later our burgers were done and we barely made it back to a table before we started digging in. I was happy to see that the burgers automatically came with a side of fries, because it just wouldn’t have been complete otherwise. Let me just tell you, that was the best burger I have had in a loooooong time; juicy, flavorful, and huge. In fact, I even took half home!

    I wish there was something like you closer to my house (because technically, you’re about an hour away from me). Do you foresee yourself expanding into Miami?? I really think you should. Thanks for the 4am feeding

    This sounds like a really cool concept. I am going to give the Hollywood one a try next week.

    Jeff,
    About 15 years ago a gas station/carwash/gourmet food shop open in Boca Raton at Clint Moore and Jog. Great foods and even had a self serve yogurt machine long before the current craze came along. This gas station with its first class car wash was also busy. Fresh breads, salads, bagels etc. This goldmine evetually collapsed when the owner got real greedy and started to overcharge for gas. The higher gas prices chase people away and although the station is still there it does very little gas business same for wash and food sales.
    To the guys who own this new concept.
    Don’t get greedy because customers are very fickle.

    Panna Cafe has excellent Cuban food at a low price. My sandwich was wonderful. I give them a 5 star excellent rating. By Gregg L. Friedman MD, Psychiatrist, Hallandale Beach, FL
