I had a party for my sister's sweet 16 on June 2, 2012 and everything about La Teresita was great!!!! My wife and I sat down and met with Nicole the hall coordinator and from start to finish she was there to help us. The food was amazing, the staff was great and the way the hall was set up was absolutely beautiful! I rated 5 stars because for the price you really could not get it any better. I strongly recommend La Teresita Banquet Hall for any one having any kind of party or event.
Unprofessional and Disappointing Catering – To everyone who has ever organized an event understands the importance of making that event memorable and special. Especially if that event is your daughter
Good Food with Bad Service – This is the second time we have been to this restaurant and have had poor service both times. The staff is rude and slow and did not try to fix our order when it was wrong. They basically said "deal with it" until one of our party began speaking to them in Spanish. Suddenly they were more responsive to our needs. I would recommend that you do take out if you want to eat here.
24 hour CUBAN FOOD! wow! – 24 hours a day and not bad. Actually it is pretty good, though at 3am the customers are sort of scary, but then I didn't look in the mirror. I went back for lunch, again again at least one a week. Going to keep coming every time I'm in this area. OH.. and it is close to the airport and football stadium... Go there.. but keep in mind it is a COUNTER DINNER, not a restaurant.
Americanized – Being from a Cuban family and eating authentic Cuban food all my life I can actually say that this restaurant has changed its true flavor which I don't say is wrong becuase they may be after a larger spectrum of people. Food at La Teresita to a Cuban is like Olive Garden is eating authentic Italian food to an Italian or Don Papblos is to a Mexican.
Great Cuban delight!! – Our son and girlfriend (Cuban) treated us to a wonderful meal with good service! They were patient with our questions and nice. They even treated me to a free dessert to take home! We will make this a regular stop to our visits! Thank you to a wonderful experience in Cuban hospitality and great food!
All Around Great Food & Price – You will find none better in food and price. There is no atmosphere here, just local diner type surroundings. Clean and comfortable. No tables, just a series of counter seats. The food is really good. I enjoyed the "collard green soup" which I tried at the suggestion of my cousin who used to live in the area. It was great! I highly suggest this place for the food. Try the coffee too! Good at both breakfast and dinner.
If you are a regular ole American, you will feel you have stepped off into Cuba. They are friendly though. They struggled to understand my Tennessee Southern dialect!
Good Food - Cheap! – My fiance and I are soooo glad that we looked up citysearch for cheap eats in Tampa cuz we found La Teresita! La Teresita is more like a diner than a restaurant, but not only is the food cheap but it is soooooooo good! The ropa vieja is so tasty + you get 2 sides ( i picked the moro rice and fried plantains) -- all for $7 bucks! Can't beat that. They also serve you this HOT toasted bread on top of everything else! We brought three other friends back to la teresita --and they were all impressed with the food and price :)
cubans subs nasty really diferrent – nasty realy nasty i dont come back sorry nasty realy nasty i dont come back sorry nasty realy nasty i dont come back sorry nasty realy nasty i dont come back sorry
Great food and Great Price!! – We love this place for lunch or dinner! Great food! My favorites are 'Rope Veja' and their OX-tail!! 'Rope Veja' is only available on Fridays and OX-Tail is only available on Wed or Thursdays...Its better if you go with someone who speaks English since most of their staff don't really speak lots English, excellent food with outstanding inexpensive prices. Not the most clean Restaurants, but great food...
