Looked forward to trying this restaurant based on reviews on here. Ordered the Cuban sandwich and fries for lunch expecting to taste Cuban spices in the sandwich but it was dry and tasteless. The only favor to be found was in the dill

I went there several times and was disappointed each time. Although the atmosphere is nice, by no means does the food taste good. The black beans are horrible. The food is lacking in proper Cuban spices and this may be due to the fact that the cooks are not Cuban they are Mexican. Also, I found them to be very overpriced. Cuban food is supposed to be inexpensive. They treat Cuban food at this restaurant like it's gourmet food and charge unsuspecting people very high prices. In no way does this compare to any good Cuban restaurants that I have been to either in Miami or even in Charlotte. Very disappointing. The music is good and I found the Sangria to be good but that's about it. Not worth the trip.

GREAT food, GREAT service - very original! For those of you whom are not familiar with Cuban cuisine, check this place out. Nice to have the choice of a Cuban cuisine in a small town filled with Mexican restaurants. This is a great feeling of home-away-from-home since we moved to Rock Hill from just outside of Fort Lauderdale nearly 3 years ago.

Owners are amazing, know us by name even though we aren't such regulars. They are actually originally from the same area we are from in Florida (Weston). Try the Cafe Con Leche with your dessert, the Flan is delish!

Me & my family moved to North Charlotte about 3 years ago from Miami/Davie, Florida. I have to say, without a doubt, Carlos Cafe is THE BEST and we don't even bat an eye lid to get on the road for the 30 minute drive it takes us to get to Cherry Road in Rock Hill!

We have tried every Cuban place that has opened here. A Taste of Havana (not very good), A Piece of Havana (TERRIBLE), etc....There is no place like Carlos to make you feel like you are back in South Florida! My favorite thing to eat there is the Pan con Bistec (Cuban Steak Sandwich) or the Bistec Empanizado (Breaded, fried steak)....Joe makes the BEST Cuban coffee around too! The atmosphere is great and the staff was improved greatly over the past year!

The owners, Joe & Flor are more like friends when you walk in that door. They attend to you just like abuela used to! I wish they would put a Carlos Cafe II in Huntersville/Concord area but until then, I will still faithfully make the trip to Rock Hill!

I had a hard time finding - but then I realized it was in Love's Plaza off of Cherry Rd. A friend of mine from Winthrop University recommended it - They give discounts to Winthrop faculty and students.
I found some good coupons on their website - www.carloscafe.co

...The fried pork chunks - If you have never tried Cuban than you're missing out.

Downside - Busy on Friday and Saturday. I go on Monday and Tuesdays - no lines, no waiting.

They sometimes have coupons on their website. GREAT FOOD !!!!! - Highly Recommend.

Are you sure that you walk into Carlo's Cafe your comments, do not sound sincere. I was born in Cuba and grew up in Miami. I have been in Charlotte for at least 2yrs in those years I have tried many ethnic restaurants. This been food from my own back ground and I do cook it at home..... They have a "Great Restaurant" a "Great Staff". The owners are a Italian back ground male and a CUBAN female....their food has been a great addition to Charlotte's hum-drum boring affair... even if they are a mire 15 min. from Uptown we take that much time going across Charlotte's Traffic. In fact in Miami's many Cuban Restaurants their flare for taste and menu would separate them from the many THOUSAND's of Cuban Food establishments.

I would tell you to try them again......I believe everyone deserves a second chance.

Pros: Great Cuban Food, Ambience, Parking, Service with a Smille & willing to help & serve..

Cons: If I had to mention one is for them to be closer.. (than 15min.) but my Doctor is happy about it...

I have not been since the ownership changed, but my family has loved this restaurant. The Cuban cuisine is delicious and unusual for the area -- lots of fabulous roast pork and melt-in-your-mouth plantains. My husband has also loved the imported Cuban soda, and we both count on a Cuban coffee at the end. We've been many times.

I am a Miami native and I have moved to Charlotte. After a pain staking task of searching and eating in Cuban resturants, I have finaly found an awesome Cuban Resturant and the only Cuban restaurant worth going to. The food is incredible and the service is awesome. The owners are so freindly they really make you feel at home. I had the fried pork chunks, white rice, black beans and empanadas and I have to say the dinner was perfect. I live in downtown Charlotte and it took me 18 min to get to Carlos Cafe and it was actually a nice drive. They also have the cheapest gas around so I can get an awesome Cuban meal and fill my tank up at the same time. I will be back every week to indulge in their awesome food. If you are looking for AUTHENTIC CUBAN FOOD, do not hesitate to try this place, its worth the drive and you wont be sorry!

We took the family to Carlo's Cafe last evening and had a fantastic time. My husband and I have travelled all over the world and love good food, especially those of countries where Spanish is spoken. We were excited to have Plantain and fish and beans. When we arrived at Carlo's Cafe, we were warmly greeted and seated right away. The ambience was fun with a bit of Island charm. The restaurant was immaculate, and you could eat off of the floors. The staff was extremely attentive to our needs and we never had to call them, they were always checking on us, and were very helpful in suggesting things we might like from the menu. We were well taken care of. After placing our order, these wonderful aromas started to permeate the restaurant, it was garlicky and smelled delicious. Our food arrived, it was great! I had the shrimp in garlic sauce which was very fresh tasting and flavorful. My husband had the whole fish which he quickly demolished, my daughter had the Tilapia which she mentioned was one of the best she had ever had, and my son enjoyed a Cuban sandwich. Everything was well presented, well seasoned, great portions and was fantastic. We are new to the area and there are so many restaurants for us to sample but we know that Carlo's Cafe will be a place that we visit again soon.
I wanted to say a word regarding authenticity. I found the food to be authentic. There will always be subtle nuances that exist in food from one region to another, from one generation to another, and from one cook to another. Each adds their own touch, this however does not mean that the food is not authentic.
You will enjoy Carlo's Cafe, the ambience, the staff, the food, and the price point were all maravilloso!

In response to theguyfoodcritic, I totally disagree. I am Cuban American and raised in HIALEAH, FL where you can find some of the best Cuban Food in the US. In fact that is where the owners grew up and one of them was born in CUBA. There are a total of 12 tables in the dining area with enough space to fit a good hungry crowd. It's a shame, but I am not surprised to see someone so low as theguyfoodcritic that would write false reviews about buisnesses that owners work so hard to manage to maintain healthy relationships and keep smiles on customers faces. Carlos Cafe is a REAL Cuban Food place and the closest to Cuban authenticity that you can find in the Carolinas. Each time I visit Carlos Cafe I order a different entree and never left there unhappy. I love this place and would recommend Carlos Cafe to all. I would tell all to visit Carlos Cafe and find out for themselves and come back to City Search and add your own review. QUE VIVA CARLOS CAFE Y LOS CUBANOS!!

I am a Cuban from Miami and in laws are Cuban. Two even own restaurants. Needless to say, I know Cuban food. This is most definitely NOT Cuban food. Putting a Cuban flag on the wall does not Cuban food make. First, the drive is LOOOONNNNGGG from Charlotte. When you finally get there, the food is stale, old and is obviously re-heated. The waitress (who can't speak Spanish), looks at you with a glare as if you are completely stupid.

Only one waitress - couldn't even get another table. But then again, there were only 6 tables total, so you are kinda screwed with wait staff.

Talking with the owner, he said that he was...get this.... he's not Cuban!!! Can't even speak proper Spanish!

If you are in Charlotte, there are better options for Spanish food especially if you are in Dillworth. It may not be Cuban, but it is good with a great atmosphere.

Don't waste your time, money or sanity on this restaurant.

Pros: Ample Parking - because there are no customers

Cons: This whole resturnat is a "con." The owner is a "con artist." Cuban - HA!

I know Carlos Cafe will be and is already a great success. We know the owners and they will indeed make everyone coming in to dine in their establishment feel like family. The food, the ambience and the owners are the REAL DEAL! We cannot wait to get back to the Carolinas and dine in what will be the Carolinas best all round restaurant.

WoW, talk about feeling at home. I am a Cuban American, and came from the cuban food capitol of the USA (Miami). Finding Carlos Cafe was a blessing. Great food, great service, and best of all, great feeling of home. Beautiful murals of tropical sights, extremely clean, and some Awesome Cuban Cofee shared with the owner. Does not get any better than that.

I absolutely loved this restaurant!! I have never had Cuban food before so I was a bit apprehensive to try?.but boy was I impressed. The dishes are flavorful but not too salty, the drinks were reasonable and the atmosphere is inviting. The best part of the experience was the customer service. The owners treat you like family and bring along with the dishes warm smiles and laughter. I recommend this restaurant for anyone who likes good food (at reasonable prices) and a warm atmosphere.

Starved Cuban Family in Charlotte finally finds the restaurant we?ve been looking for! This is Cuban: The Food, The Smell, The Owners and The Atmosphere. It felt as if we had driven 700+ miles south to Miami for lunch.
It?s been two years since we moved to Charlotte from Miami and one of the things we?ve missed the most was a good Cuban restaurant. I?m happy to say: ?We found it!?
Everything we ordered tasted Cuban. From the Pork Chunks to the Tamales, the Rice to the Maduros. It?s been a long time since I have Black Beans that taste like the ones that my grandmother would make and the Flan was second to none.
If you have never eaten Cuban Food you will be hooked, if you have you?ll agree that this Carlos Cafe has the Mojito, and if you?re Cuban it will bring back the memories.

I highly recommend Carlos Cafe.

Pros: Authentic Food, Service and The Atmosphere

Cons: Did see any

You don't have to be Cuban to love Carlos's cafe. I don't know Cuban food at all, but I know great food, great service, and reasonable prices when I see them. The menu has everything from huge Cuban sandwiches for $5 or less to seafood, chicken, pork, and more. There's something for everyone with a glass of wine, a beer, delicious Cuban coffee, or a Cuban soda to go along.

Service is friendly and fast, too.

There are so many things it's impossible to choose the best, but their pepper steak is a fine example. It's made of tender and tasty chunks of beef, and the peppers and onions are lightly grilled to perfection. The steak in pepper steak is obviously a high qualifty cut, because it has the same flavor and texture as if you had ordered a fine steak. There's nothing over-spiced or greasy at all. Just the flavors of fine-quality food, well prepared. (Be sure to ask, if you want your steak rare or medium, even in pepper steak, or it may come back a more traditional well-done). The black beans are to die for, and nantilla, a custard dessert with cinnamon on top, is a great way to finish an excellent meal.

Give Carlos a try. I bet you'll like it.

Iam cuban and therefore can be very critical of my food. But this placed was was just good home cooking. Great Pan con bistek(steak sandwiches) with the littles fries in it. The Cuban sandwich I have had a better one in Latin America in Miami. Eventhough I would have toasted my bread a liitle more, it was very flavorful. There batidos(milk shakes) Papaya, Mamey and Mango were just right and the expresso was just the good ending. It is a liitle place with a big heart for flavor. and very easy on the pocket.Very affordable for all the food they serve. Just great home cooking cuban food. It was also very clean.. I highly recommend
