“Good Cuban food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Never ate Cuban food before. Found this place while on travel. Walked in and it was empty. the owner greeted us and were we at home. Extensive bottled beer collection and we helped ourselves; fresh chilled glass per bottle. At the recommended meal (all 3 had different meals) and was very pleased.
Half the experience is the owner, he is a character adn great to chat with.
The other half is really good food and generous portions.

“Great Food, Friendly Owner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

The owner was very friendly and recommended a Cuban dish for us to try. He told us how he made the tables out of wine crates. The food was great, I would go back. The only complaint I have is that we arrived at 1pm when they were supposed to open and they were 10 minutes late opening. We paid about $50 for two alcohol beverages, two sodas, and our meals (plus tax and tip). It took a little while for the food to come out, but everything was made to order... this is not fast food.

“The worst!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Extremely slow service - we were the only ones in the restaurant when we got there and it took 30 minutes for the 3 of us to be served.
The girl who brought the menus didn't speak English so couldn't answer any of our questions. The old man that runs the place was dressed like a homeless person. At least he spoke English to take our order but it didn't inspire confidence as to the cleanliness of the place.
The food was horrible -- the palomillo steak was a piece of leather! All of the fried items tasted like they had been fried in old oil. One of us ordered sweet iced tea but it wasn't brought to the table. After waiting patiently for at least 10 minutes, we had to go up to the counter to find someone to notify. They brought the tea, finally -- unsweetened.
I'm really amazed to see the number of good reviews this place has gotten, not only here but on Yelp and other sites. All I can figure is that the reviewers have never tasted REAL Cuban food and have no basis for comparison.

“The worst Cuban restaurant”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

The food was bad, the service was worth less. If you never went to a Cuban restaurant, you probably would not go to one after going to Laura's. portions are small and over priced. Plus if there are only 4 people in the restaurant it should not take 30 minutes to get your food.
