Stick-to-your ribs, homecooked Puerto Rican and Cuban food has made this humble diner an Orlando favorite. With plenty of greenery, a family atmosphere, and a simple but well-prepared menu, Medina's proves food doesn't have to be fancy to be good. You won't find any sun-dried tomatoes on anything here, just the basics blended in memorable ways.
Roast pork, marinated in garlic and onions and dished up with white rice and black beans, is a house specialty. Also sample the Medina steak, a generous portion marinated in garlic and onions and served with crisp curly fries. The yellow rice and chicken accompanied by sweet plantains also merits a taste. This isn't a place for anyone in the anti-garlic camp, and keep in mind that the food is much better than the service. If you go, prepare to linger over your meal.
