Had a great plate of pork nachos and local beer. Nice people. We really enjoyed the historical American Tobacco revitalization setting. Hung out here before walking to the Durham Bulls baseball game. I would definitely recommend.

We enjoyed lunch one Sunday, when it was uncrowded and relaxed. Our server was attentive and helpful with menu suggestions, and our meal was delicious. Nice drinks (mojitos, of course :}), fine empanadas (flaky, crisp pastry with a spicy chicken filling), tasty, generously portioned mains...More

Across the street from the Bulls stadium is a really nice restored tobacco/cigarette factory. In it are a few restaurants. One is the Cuban Revolution. We had the Cuban sandwich with black beans and rice. Very good, but not the same as in Miami.

Little pricey. Food was okay, nothing great or memorable. Service was good. Not planning on going back.

Given the location being the American Tobacco Historic District campus next to the Bull’s baseball park, we expected the food and service to be top shelf. It wasn’t. No one was tending the hostess stand when our party of four adults and one child arrived...More

I was disappointed in the food as it's hard to find good Cuban food. I must admit I only went once so it could be that it was just the particular dish I ordered.
