Horrible service, we ordered our food and waited for it for about a half hour as they had other people coming in and out with theirs. All we ordered was 3 sandwiches, empanadas, a deviled crab (which we never got because another guy got his order before us) and some eclairs which were stale. The kids at the cash register didn't know what they were doing and almost charged a man 160 dollars for a sandwich. Only good thing about this place is their empanadas, food wasn't great at all. I don't recommend this place unless you want your day to be ruined.

Mr. Eloy is Cuban. Not Dutch-Irish, but Cuban. Mr. Eloy is over-joyous whenever he eats here. Mr. Eloy swears that this Cuban food is absolutely excellent! We have complete faith in Mr. Eloy's taste buds. Billy doesn't know much about Cuban food but knows a good Mojito like Bo once knew baseball. Billy and Eloy are in joint agreement... That these Mojitos are also excellent! Any drink here is a bargain and a half. They are also in agreement that 2 or 3 of them is enough.

Delicious soooooo much food. The Cuban mix was loaded and the roast pork had so much flavor. Little confusing because there is a store, cafe, bakery, and a sit down restaurant. All have food, but we sat in the cafe and service was great!

Great experience. LOTS of good Cuban food for a great price. Very friendly and polite hosts. Even shook our hands. Will definitely visit again when in Tampa.

Went here because we were tired of Publix after they got rid of ther Cuban press and we're looking for a real Cuban sandwich. This place was one of the few restaurants open on Mother's Day afternoon and it had promising reviews. I am beyond satisfied with the sandwich I got here. We were the only people eating the sandwiches but they were delicious and everyone else's food looked quite appealing as well. The bread they served, both for the table and for the sandwiches is made at their bakery across the parking lot! So fresh and you could taste the difference from chain places! We ended up getting the Cuban expresso (much better than the crap Starbucks serves), yellow rice and black beans (at the waitresses suggestion) and then two Cuban sandwiches. The meat was beyond generous and the toppings fresh and delicious. If I hadn't filled up on the beans and rice, I would have loved to try the desserts. Will definitely be going back. Long story short: very authentic and delicious Cuban food :)

Went to La Teresita because a friend recommended it after I asked where to get some Cuban sandwiches. This business is poorly kept, has horrid parking, and unfriendly service. Now about that sandwich I ordered; It was utterly atrocious. It was hastily thrown together with old ingredients. It lacked care from the preparer and resulted in an abomination they called a sandwich. Will never go back there again or recommended it people whom I care.

Excellent!!!! The food was absolutely delicious and the service was great. They were friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. I can't wait to come back!!! (By the way their cheese flan is the best! )

The prices are good but the food is not cuban.... The servers are great and funny, they are truly characters... The problem is in the amount of cooks they have from central america that are not trained appropriately for the job. Cooking is an art, even more when you are cooking cuban or puerto rican food. The food here at La Teresita is bland and tasteless, it does not taste at all the way cuban food should taste. The place is dirty.
