It is a no frills, but many thrills when you taste the food, kind of place. It is a small nondescript storefront that can easily be missed. It has a few tables on the side and a long counter that faces the stove where owner, Orestes, cooks his home made Cuban food on huge pots and pans.
On the stove top you will always find a chunk of their daily lech??n (pork) that is scrumptious. The menu offers up a variety of dishes but the two that I highly recommend are the Rabo Encendido (Oxtail on Fire), and the Pierna de Puerco Asado (grilled leg of pork). Both are amazing.
The moros (mixed white rice and black beans) and the regular arroz y frijoles are the best. And they have a variety of Sandwich Cubanos that are also delicious. Not only is La Caridad the best in town but it can also give any place on Calle Ocho in Miami a run for their money. The service is awesome and the prices are very reasonable.
It is open M-Sat. 7:00am-6:00pm, closed on Sundays.
