Char Hut has been a family affair for the Cammisa crew since they opened the first hamburger haven in 1976, and it continues to be today. Now the original founders and their children, daughter-in-law and nephew operate four locations across Florida, each serving up a hearty menu of juicy, char-grilled meats and diner-inspired sides that live up to the eatery's mantra "one bite says it all."
Dressed in a distinct green, yellow, and red awning, Char Hut restaurants invite diners to kick back as they sink into traditional American eats. Chefs oversee the transformation of their signature 1/3 pound burgers from bare patty into char-grilled delights dressed in 18 different toppings, such as cooked mushrooms and hot relish sauce. They also turn up the flames to char-grill hot dogs, chicken, and yellow fin tuna while cooking sweet-potato fries in 100% pure vegetable oil. To quell unstoppable appetites or prepare for a dinner party with a family of sasquatches, diners can stock up on specialty platters of Latin-style palomilla steak with plantains or chili with cut up hot dogs served over rice.
Even as a child, a basic taco or burrito was only the starting point for Chef Omar Covarrubias. He spent his time inside his family?s hotel kitchen in Mexico experimenting with traditional Mexican dishes. And now at the helm of his own eatery, Los Tacos by Chef Omar, he whips up creative twists on classics, from filling tacos with breaded chicken and chipotle-lime-mayo coleslaw to stuffing burritos with ancho-marinated pork and grilled pineapples. Chef Omar, who won the National Latino Chef of the Year at the 2011 Flavors of Passion Awards, builds his popular wet burrito dish with chipotle ground beef, Mexican cheese, rice, and beans topped with a three-cheese sauce to serve as accompaniment to chilled margaritas.
For the Vilarino family, opening a restaurant wasn't just an opportunity to celebrate their Cuban heritage. It was their shot at surviving in America after fleeing the Communist regime of their home country in 1980. ?And in the 30 years since they opened the first Las Vegas, they've found plenty of success, adding a dozen more locations along the way.
Perhaps it's the authenticity of the food that people have fallen for, as Las Vegas Cuban Cuisine's menu is an ode to classic Cuban recipes. There's a Cuban sandwich, of course, paired with plantain chips, as well as ropa vieja?shredded flank beef that's marinated in garlic, peppers, onions, and bay leaves and topped with a tomato sauce. Even the selection of beverages includes Caribbean-style drinks, such as pineapple soda and cafe con leche.
