Quick options near the interstate that aren’t National chains/fast food are slim to none. I was happy to find Mary’s Cuban Kitchen Express the other day!
This location is just to the east of I-75 on the southern end of Ocala. Exit 341 (where Don Garlit’s Museum of Drag Racing is) . The restaurant is attached to a gas station. There is a table you can stand at but no seating - express basically means to-go! I had a very generous pressed Miami style Cuban. Could have used more mustard and pickles but that’s just me. A large café con leche kept me jazzed for the 9 hours I still had ahead of me. Guava/cream cheese pastry was quite good too. If you are fastidious about your car don’t eat the pastry while driving - very, very flaky! Total for all three items with tax was $11.22.
Other sandwiches and pastries available plus breakfast items. Signage indicates open 7-7 seven days a week.
Please share any other gems for I-75 in Florida which are exit friendly!
