Everyone should eat here. Never had Cuban before but will a lot form now on. The owners are wonderful and helpful telling you about each dish. We had the steak and the chicken with rice and beans and plantains 2ways. But we deiceded to try the empanadas. Oh my! Heaven on Earth. Had the hima and cheese, divine. But then the guava/cheese, DIVINE! crust are flaky, melt in your mouth. My new favorite place. Parking is a little hard but next time we are taking the trolley from Overton square. A wonderful experience. And did I say the staff is super nice and helpful and care that you are happy?

This is a great family restaurant. My wife and I both really enjoyed our dishes and the dishes at dinner ranged from 6-10 dollars which was great value for the quality. There is a parking garage nearby which made it more convenient. And, the Cuban coffee reminded me of a great strong coffee I experienced in France years ago.

About Havana's Pilon

Havana's Pilon is named for a Latin American expression that refers to a mortar and pestle, according to the Memphis Flyer. That makes sense, since the eatery's cozy interior is decorated with several mortars and pestles, and they are frequently used in the kitchen, where cooks mash green plantains with olive oil and garlic for shrimp mofongo. Other specialties include Cuban-style rotisserie chicken, tender ropa vieja, and a fried-rice recipe traditionally served in Havana's Chinatown. Owner Marialys Gonzalez and her team also blend tropical-fruit smoothies and sweeten potent Cuban-style espresso with natural demerara sugar.
