Tampa folks take the Cuban Sandwich seriously. So when a fast food giant decided to take a stab at our iconic sandwich and enter the Cuban game, some were not impressed. A Twitter user tagged legendary Ybor City Cuban sandwich master Columbia Restaurant to get their reaction to Pollo Tropical’s introducing their take on the Cuban. Columbia’s response is hilarious and 100% SOUTH… “Bless their hearts.”
Although they say it was greasy and seemed unsure with Pollo Tropical putting mayo on it, these reviewers were fans.
