"Delicious chicken wings, an empanada, yucca frita and tostones came paired with a sublime garlic sauce on the side.... A huge (over a foot long) fried plantain was cut in half and stuffed with roast pork, ham, and Swiss cheese.... It's a knockout punch to the appetite, but what a delicious way to get hit. We ended up with a Tres Leches cake that was so moist and delicious we were scraping the plate with our fingers."
-The Austin Chronicle
"And how about the show stopper, the lechon asado or roast pork. Cooked for 7 hours until it literally falls apart, this dish defies description. Tender, astonishingly flavorful, it is a wonder to taste.... Habana is so good that like Cuban cigars, the food here should be illegal. Lucky for us it's not."
-Rob Balon, Fox News 7
"Habana is the quickest route from Austin to the Caribbean."
-Sarah Lindner, Austin 360
"The 'massive portions' of 'great Cuban' fare will 'make your taste buds sing.'"
-ZAGAT Survey 2008
"Among the favorites is the peerless sandwich Cubano, filled with Habana's famous succulent lechon asado, ham and Swiss cheese, lusciously melted inside toasted Cuban-style bread and dressed with tangy pickles....Don't fill up because these folks make one of the best tres leches cakes this side of the Rio Grande."
