It's funny to see comments going so far into the year when the restaurant was closed back in March. Yet the owner was rude in June of 2007- are you sure you were in the right restaurant???

This was my favorite restaurant in the Triangle. It served the best, most authentic cuban food. The Ropa Vieja was to die for. Unfortunately, the reason I write in the past tense is the restaurant is closed. This is a travesty. A gem

Pros: food taste, price/value, location

Entered restaurant at 7:35 pm -- sign on door said dinner is served until 8. Owner was rude, didn't even greet us when we walked in, just barked at us "we are not seating anyone for dinner, you can only get takeout!" All we wanted were

Pros: centrally located in wake forest

Cons: rude owner, does not follow posted policies, tiny cramped interior, inadequate parking

God bless Havana Jax and their delicious Cuban fare, which draws our dinner dollars about every other week. I've tried several menu items but keep coming back to the delicious Lime Marinated Pork, or a chicken sandwich with a fruity salsa

Pros: Awesome Food, Family-Owned

Cons: Strip Mall setting may be a turn-off for some

the food was excellent, but the portions of the entrees we got were very small especially for the price of each entree. My husband was still hungry after eating his shrimp creole that was $11.99. I would recommend this place for a good

This is like going to Little Havana! The food is the genuine, honest to goodness Cuban food. Owner and her family are from Cuba and know how to cook(try the croquetas)! The waitresses are friendly, helpful, and always nice. And the prices

Pros: Delicious food, Cozy atmosphere, Family-owned

This restaurant is great to taste authentic cuban food. My girlfriend is part cuban and loves the food here. The food is almost as good as her cuban grandparents' cooking. Though the restaurant is small, sits about 20-30 people, it has great service. The overall appeal is nice, and food is great. Would go here again and again.

If you are looking for great cuban or even Spanish food you will love this place! There are coupons in the Wake Forest super saver and on the back of Kroger receipts. There meat is wonderful and their flan is soooo good. It is a cute cafe with reasonable prices.

Ok, how can someone write a review about a place that closed down before the review was written. Something seems fishy here.
