I tried Cuban Food a few months ago while in Miami and fell in love with it and I brought a Groupon for this restaurant hoping that I could enjoy good Cuban food right here at home. Boy was a DISAPPOINTED. The food is served cafeteria style, but you can order from a menu. I ordered Camarones al Ajillo /... More

I bought a groupon for this restaurant because I've lived in Miami for 4 years and was missing good cuban food and everything sounded good on the menu. When you see the overall ratings of this place it seems fine, that's why I bought the coupon. I went on a Saturday night with my husband and the parking lot was... More

Was looking forward to have found an authentic Cuban resto in town but was disappointed when the food we got was somewhat spoiled. Had to return my plate as the rice was really starting to smell. On the upside, it really is authentic Cuban taste.

Decided to try Havana Grill after seeing it on Groupon. I really enjoy Cuban food, but had to talk my partner into driving from Chapel Hill to Cary for dinner. I invited my favorite graduate student to bring a friend so there would be much socializing regardless of the meal. We were quite surprised to realize that it was set... More

My family enjoyed our meal at the Havana Grill. The menu is long and a bit hard to weed through for folks who are new to Cuban cuisine. We shared two tamales as appetizers, four entrees and two deserts. The best options were roasted pork, the rice with beans and flan for desert. Our experienced could have been improved if... More

So - here's the thing: I only visited this place because I had a groupon for it, but EVEN with 50% discount the food there is horribly overpriced. For $15 each entree I would go in a place with way better food, real dinnerware (they serve you on plastic utensils), better ambiance and that at least would have a server... More

Okay, first up, no veggie options, place has a cafeteria like quality to it. Coffee was good, food was okay, rather expensive for the kind served. What I am upset about is not being given a valid reason for denying a coupon I had. It seemed like they did not want us to avail the discount that THEY offered online!... More

The food is authentic Cuban food and very good. They always have a wonderful selection of entrees. Unfortunately, there isn't a huge selection for vegetarians. But otherwise, it is really good and I would recommend!

I love this place. It's very casual and a great place to take the family. But the best part is the food. Try the tamales with pork and sangria. They make everything from scratch.

Not the best flavor I have had in Cuban food but it was still pretty good. I love the outdoor seating and entertainment. Although our visit was a little chilly in the evening, it was still pretty comfy with a sweater. It provides for a good night out with friends. The karaoke was probably the most entertaining I have seen.... More
