Inspired by Scruff's thread on sammiches..Cubans

I've never had a McRib, but I've had a lot of Cubans and today Alton Brown did a sammich show where he pressed Cubans on long, thin hoagie buns. Every Cuban I've ever had was on square or round bread. Not long and thin. Thoughts?

Same. Cali n Titos in Athens has a sandwich they call Cuban but it's not a traditional.

The cuban sandwich at Butcher is the best sandwich I've ever eaten.

I thought cuban sanwiches were named for the "cuban" bread. Which is a long thin hoagie like bread.

Just had a Cuban yesterday at a Cuban eatery in South Beach Miami. It was long and thin.

Long and skinny like the bread has been on a raft for a week with no food.

I think the classic Ybor City Cubanos are on long, thin Cuban bread. Most of the Cubans that I've had are made that way and flattened on the flat top with some kind of weight or spatula pressure with butter:
