La Teresita 
Returning Contestant since 2012

The Capdevila Family History and the La Teresita Restaurant
The Capdevila Family emigrated from Cuba to the United States in 1962 on the Freedom Flights to Miami, Florida. Maximino and Coralia Capdevila fled Cuba wanting a better life for their boys after Fidel Castro and communism took over. Even though they did not know the language and they did not have any resources, they knew that if they worked hard they could achieve the American dream. Maximino and Coralia decided to settle in Tampa along with their four boys, Jorge, Luis, Albert, and Maxi, Jr.

In 1993, the Capdevila family once again endeavored on a new project, another dream: a 14,000 square foot, two-story restaurant on properties they had previously purchased next to the existing cafeteria. The new building now holds a sit-down restaurant (Capdevila’s at La Teresita) with tables and booths on the east side of the building, the cafeteria with the horseshoe-shaped counters on the west side and takeout area, a banquet hall on the 2nd floor. The new project with the Lord’s help became a great success and the Capdevila family has continue to served this community and people from all over the world with great food, reasonable prices, huge portion’s along with a great family atmosphere. La Teresita now serves thousands weekly and has been honored to host and serve Presidents of the United States, governors, senators, mayors, city workers, and peoples and cultures from all walks of life. They all enjoy the world famous “La Teresita” food and traditions.
