Mesa’s is a Cuban BBQ spot in Hialeah. The pork here is fantastic, but go early (especially on the weekend) because they tend to run out of stuff by the end of the day. This pork shines thanks to the mojo full of that garlicky, acidic flavor. They also have pork ribs, which are not common in Cuban barbecue, so definitely try those too. And their homemade Cuban tamales are a perfect side to all that pork. They are thicker, made with fresh masa, and stuffed with (you guessed it) more pork.
