Try the chicken & yellow rice.

I never knew how big a difference there is between Mexican vs Cuban food until I came here and tried the chicken with yellow rice. The flavor they infuse this dish with, some kind of garlic influenced sauce, really gives it a special flavor not found in Mexican Restaurants. My son tells me that... read more

On a Wednesday evening a friend and I decided to go out to dinner at this restaurant. The minute you walk in the door you feel like you at home. We where served our drinks and our order was taken quickly. I order the Papa Rellena for the appetizer, the outside was crisp and the inside busting with flavor. My... More

We hope this location has no affiliation with the location in Tampa. As it does not even etch the surface of being in the same caliber. The service was poor and the cuisine would be better if I bought Latin ingredients and prepared it myself. Not sure how they are staying in business, but we will be sure not to... More

We stopped in here for lunch. I enjoyed the ropa vieja while hubby enjoyed his Cuban Sandwich. Service is on-point, and it was obvious the waitstaff "back each other up" to ensure good customer service to all. Food arrived quickly, and prices are reasonable. Cafe con leche is good.

This place is simply great! If you are looking for tacos go to taco bell. This place serves authentic food. They also have a breakfast buffet on the weekends that is pretty good.

When you visit La Teresita you may be struck by the relatively lackluster facility and the obvious fact that this was once some other dining establishment, but if you make the mistake of thinking that somehow means the food will be anything but excellent then you will miss out. The food is amazing, no matter what you order and while... More

Friendly local place for Cuban style food. Service is fast and people are friendly. Prices are very reasonable, and food is okay. They offer some good specials - enjoyed a nice fish dinner the other night, and the yellow rice and black beans is very good. the lamb shank and arroz con pollo always good. Nice soups, but sometimes salty.The... More
