El Sitio on Roosevelt downhill alert!!!

Well I should have done my research prior to going here for a cuban but Jim always seems to be ahead of his time. I went in there innocent and blind and said to myself if this is what a great cuban tastes like Cubans don't know good chow. I'm assuming this place was in its prime in the 60s-80s and then nosedived. Its sad because its a nice little hole in the wall friendly staff but the Cuban was downright nasty. The pork was so grey and inedible I had to take it off. The rest of the grilled ham n cheese with pickes n mustard just wasn't tasty. The saving grace of this place is they make a mean cuban coffee and the cafe con leche was one of the best cups of joe I ever had. They make it to order, use steamed milk thats filtered and serve it up piping hot. As a first time cuban eater I hope I can find the real deal when it comes to the highly revered Cubano. After doing some research Jim posted about 5 years ago that this place was on the skids.
