If you desire an excellent and authentic Cuban sandwich this is the correct spot. This is one of 4 (I think) establishments at this location all under the LaTeresita name. There is a restaurant, bakery, café type take out, and an eating counter where you can watch all the folks coming and going. That is really the best spot. Grab... More

Always good food, always great service. I always visit this place when I'm in the Tampa area and I love it, me & my family go on Wednesday nights.. if you are interested in old-style Cuban food this is the place to go and you will leave with some money in your pocket...

Good Cuban food and lots of it for very reasonable price. We came here right after we landed in Tampa. Nothing fancy...just good!

Friendly, quick service. Excellent food. We hadn't eaten here in several years, but when we were visiting Tampa, we wanted to take some friends to the restaurant. We had drinks at the bar (tiny, but Raul was a terrific bartender - he not only shared the recipe for the restaurant's tangy, not-too-sweet sangria, he even gave us some suggestions on... More

The place is dirty, the service is slow, and the workers take attitude with you. Lived in Tampa for five years and they are the rudest people I every meet. The food is just ok, and nothing special. I am Cuban and this amounts to dumpy Cuban food place you send a enemy to eat. Nothing redeeming about this place.... More

When I visit Tampa, it is a must to come to this restaurant to eat Cuban food. The arroz con pollo, black beans and rice, boliche, empanadas, churasco steak and pork dishes are always seasoned and tasty. The prices are moderate and you get a lot of food for the money

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
