5. Ybor City Cuban
Ybor City Cuban
St. Petersburg, FL
Just northeast of downtown Tampa is Ybor City, a National Historic Landmark District that was originally founded by cigar manufacturers. From there comes the Cuban sandwich: smoked ham, pork, salami, Swiss cheese, dill pickle and mustard, all on warm Cuban bread.
The Columbia restaurant features a stand in Tropicana Field, allowing Rays fans to enjoy a good eat to go along with their suddenly good baseball.*
*UPDATED: While the Columbia Restaurant still boasts delicious Cuban sandwiches at multiple locations, it unfortunately no longer serves them in Tropicana Field. We regret the error. The Trop still remains the only Major League ballpark to have a cigar bar, however, featuring "leather chairs and sofas" and "cigars that aficionados recognize to be among the finest produced."
