El Oriental de Cuba, JP (my favorite traditional version in town)
The Plough and Stars, Cambridge (lunch only)
Volle Nolle, North End
El Tiante, Fenway Park (in season)
Miami Cafe, JP
The Cubano at Chez Henri (bar only) is indeed extraordinary, but it is a gourmet version, not traditional, and quite huge. (It costs $14.) They also do a vegetarian version that is actually excellent.
The pork chimi at Alex's Chimis in JP is not a Cubano, but a Dominican sandwich that is similar, and quite delicious.

El Oriental de Cuba is the real deal.
Also the Miami place across the street is pretty damn good. JP is the HOME of the Cuban.

Not even a question: Oriental de Cuba first, Chez Henri second, although a cubano at Chez Henri will cost you twice as much.

Check out the cuban at Garden At The Cellar on Mass Ave between Central and Harvard. Comes with ridiculous rosemary-truffle fries...

Chez Henri. Mojito, please and maybe a side order of empanadas. :) By far the best cubano in the area and one of the best in the states.
