I am visiting from Charlotte, NC and this restaurant was recommended. I had not eaten a Cuban meal in over 14 years, as real Cuban food is scarce in North Carolina. The ambiance is a great; with the pictorial journey through Cuba on the monitor and the live music. You are greeted immediately and service begins soon after you are... More

We have eaten many meals over the years at La Teresita & Capdevila (next-door, same kitchen). Capdevila has made some improvements over the past several months, in service & decor. But the food can be great one night, and so-so the next. We usually go for the Chicken Fricase on Wednesdays. A few weeks ago, we had this dish, and... More

Great Cuban sandwich, awesome Cuban fried rice, best cafe con leche and delish croquetas de jamon. It is not fancy, it is all over the place.... A... More

Old school style cafe Cuban style. Great portions, true flavors and a flair of home cooking. Always busy, but a barstool usually opens up quickly. A must visit for the local that has not ventured there or a out of town visitor.

While I prefer the cafeteria side for the authentic Cuban experience, this side of the restaurant is more formal with individual tables dressed in table cloths and linen napkins. The food is the same great food that you get on the other side of the house, but here you are served by a staff more formal in their appearance and... More

Same food, as La Terrisita this side being the sit down waiter and waitress service, as opposed to the cafeteria style counter service next door. They are separated by the kitchen. Same great tasting authentic Cuban food, same great prices. !!

I wrote my detailed review of this establishment under the original name of La Teresita and it appears there for your reading. I believe this name refers to the very large restaurant side of the house, with full and attentive service. You cannot go wrong here flavor or monetary wise if you will examine the specials on the menu every... More

I heard about this place from public television and was so glad to have tried this. The food is amazing and the prices are spot on. We always go for the specials, which come with two sides (yucca, rice, beans, etc). The food is always hot and the service is quick. We then head over to the bakery next door... More
