If you get a chance, there is (was?) a great little hole-in-the wall Cuban restaurant on Big Pine Key West

. I sure hope it is still there. Maybe some other folks in here can advise.
Going West, go to the traffic light on Big Pine Key, turn right 45 degrees down Key Deer Blvd. There will be a shopping
center on the right. Towards the left end was a little diner. They served breakfast and lunch. If I remember correctly they were closed Monday. Ask what they have on special.
First time I went, after I ordered the special (on advice
of someone else there), she made some Cuban bread. As she put it down, she said "It's better when it's hot." She walked a coupla steps, turned back, and in a stern voice said "EAT IT, NOW!" She was right. I had a pork chop in a bowl of rice with a fried egg on top and then gravy over that. Absolutely wonderful. I went there two meals
a day for the 3 days I was there.
