There's not much room to dine in, but takeout and delivery are great options for the kind of slow-braised pork dishes and simmered beans that make the area's Cuban food so beloved. Family-friendly and crowd-pleasing. Pipo's signature slow-roasted pork comes with two choices from the soups (cumin-touched black bean, rib-sticking Spanish bean or soupy red beans), yellow or white rice, veggies like slowly caramelized plantains or green beans dotted with bits of ham, or Cuban bread and butter.
Live music on the weekends, with a special tapas menu, beer and wine.
