Armando's Restaurant Review: A mother-daughter team from Cuba runs this energetic spot with bright, connected dining rooms. Good breakfasts include nopalitos (tender cactus leaves) cooked with eggs, green peppers and onions, and huevos rancheros. A lunch buffet is offered every day, and the menu is full of reasonably priced Mexican and Cuban dishes, including tortas, tamales, enchiladas and tostados. Complete meals come with rice and beans --- seafood tacos with pico de gallo as well as steak or chicken fajitas, burritos and enchiladas, for example. Also on tap: combination plates, all of which are priced under $12. Dinners are more expensive and range from steaks, shrimp, crab and lobster to the classics, such as shrimp broiled in garlic sauce, steak covered with Spanish sauce and fried plantains. Family-style dishes are available as are kids’ items. Tres leches, flan and fried ice cream are among desserts. There's a short wine list, a slightly longer selection of beers and an assortment of margaritas, daiquiris, mojitos and sangría.
