LYNDHURST, N.J. — The owners of ANDRIS packed up their business in New York City last year to find a place that was not so saturated with hispanic cuisine and ended up in Lyndhurst.

"We saw Lyndhurst as a place that would give us the opportunity to be very different from the other types of restaurants that are around," said his wife, 40, whose husband opened "Andris Cuban Sandwich King" on Stuyvesant Avenue last October.

"The cuban sandwich is a unique dish, and the opportunity to bring it to Lyndhurst is exciting."

Andrys, 43, cooks "Andris" cuban sandwich by slow-roasting pork for five hours and then slapping it on fresh, cuban bread with ham, swiss cheese, and pickles. 

It's something he's been doing since immigrating to the United States from the Dominican Republic in 1987. Upon arrival, he worked at the Floridita in Harlem — one of the first cuban restaurants in New York City.

"He has a lot of passion when it comes to his food," his wife said. "His sandwiches have a very particular flavor that is savory and delicious."

But sandwiches are only part of the "Andris menu," which also offers empanadas, milkshakes, cuban coffee, and breakfast platters.

She  attributes that to her husband's decision to ease into their new market.

"We could have made a big boom when we opened but we decided to take it one step at a time and see what people liked," his wife  said.

"We offered some things but we wanted to also see what people would ask us for and now we are going to add some things."

Some of those things include outdoor seating, a Latin lunch special and a bring-your-own-bottle "Latin Might."

The couple hopes to open more locations in the future.

If you are looking for something different than the 20+ pizza joints in Lyndhurst this is your place. Great Cuban sandwiches like they have in Miami and the empanadas are very good as well.  Super friendly, clean and reasonably priced.  Not much seating area as it is basically a Cuban luncheonette.  Visit soon before the word gets out and the lines form!

What a delight it was to find this little Cubano lunch spot in the middle of Lyndhurst! On our way, the crossing guard volunteers that if we're going to the lunch place on the corner to make sure to get a "cuban" and a steak sandwich. Well, we did exactly that, and both sandwiches were great. They were hot and toasty from the sandwich press and delicious. We finished lunch with a tasty Guanabana shake an a guava & cheese empanada for dessert. It was a large Cuban lunch today that I will certainly repeat now that I know about this gem of of a lunch spot. Next time, I will be taking lunch orders to bring back some for my coworkers!Type your paragraph here.

Love Andri's! I am a huge fan of the steak sandwich, but my husband and I have enjoyed everything we've orders from this restaurant. Empanadas are also quite good. The place is small and simply decorated -- it's ideal for takeout. The owner is very nice and I hope Andri's continues to thrive so I can get my empanadas fix any time!

This is definitely a hidden gem within Lyndhurst. The service was wonderful. I ordered 3 Cuban Sandwiches and 8 Empanadas (Tried the Chicken and Beef). My order was ready in 15-20 minutes. The food was awesome. I must say I will be going back to try more of their food!Type your paragraph here.
