Lived in Tampa when I was a kid in the 80's. So I ate at the original place, the food was good and you can't be the price. Not fancy, but so worth going to if you want some good latin food.

We always stop in for lunch when in the area. This is a neighborhood cuban spot always busy and the daily specials are the way to go. Have a cafe con leche and enjoy the local scene. Fast and friendly service.

We have heard positive reviews about La Teresita from our friends in the area so we decided to try it. The restaurant itself is easily accessible. The hostess' greeting was cold and distant. Did not even looked at us. Once seated, we asked if we...More
