Reviews for Flaco's Cuban Bakery

The best simple Cuban food you're going to get in Gainesville. It can't compare to Miami or Cuba (obviously), but the Cuban Gator sandwich and the beef pastry puff were legit. Love that it's open super late compared to other restaurants in Gainesville. Will come again to try their ropa vieja. There was a fair wait for our food on a busy Fri night, but staff were friendly and prices are extremely reasonable.

Really solid Cuban place in Gainesville, which is awesome because there aren't a ton of such places in Northern Florida. It's not a problem as you can imagine down south but they can be hard to come by up here. Anyway, the pastries are really good and the cuban sandwich is as well. Wait times can be long though especially if there are a lot of people. It's a popular place

Gosh...why o why did I even attempt to come here. It takes FOREVER to get a simple meal. At least 30 minutes. If not more....And it is every single time I go. Today though, it was the worst I experienced, very long wait (45 min). Also, Flacos has a GCM coupon, but the worker did not allow me to use it (why have it on the app, then??).One star because I think the food is decent. But is it worth the wait? I don’t think so.
