Padrino’s Cuban Express (Pompano Beach)

Posted on July 28th, 2009 · Breakfast Cuban Fast Food Pompano Beach

***** Padrino’s Cuban Express, 2900 West Sample Road, Pompano Beach, Florida 33073 (954) 984-4128.

Got something different for you…a fast-food Cuban joint…Padrino’s Cuban Express…located in the Festival Marketplace’s (Flea Market) food-court.

Padrino’s makes some heavy-duty delicious stuff. Although its an “order-at-counter” joint, its menu is loaded with appetizers, wraps, soups, salads, sandwiches and meat-seafood-chicken entrees. Padrino’s also has a breakfast menu.

Like I said before, Padrino’s is in the food-court…you order at the counter and eat in “general population” seating. The joint also has its own 20-or so seat dining room with table and counter seating.

The prices are dirt-cheap…breaded minute steak hoagie sandwich ran $5.49…seafood creole was $5.99 and grilled pork chops $8.49, both came with rice, beans and plantains…These dishes were delicious. From what I can tell, there are three people running this joint…absolutely amazing how they are able to bang-out such amazingly good food from a miniscule kitchen.

So…the next time you find yourself wandering the Festival flea-market in search of bargains, you now have a terrific Cuban fast-food joint to hit.

Padrino’s is open Monday-Friday 8:30am-5pm and Saturday-Sunday 8:30pm-6pm.

    Jeff, sneak over to the Caribbean Grill over on 2nd avenue and Glades and eat the pulled pork and or whatever you are in the mood for. Very good food, and the place is a dive. Don’t tell anyone!

    I believe this place has closed as of the last time I was at the Festival which was within the past few weeks.
