I went there for lunch Oct. 22, 2010. The food was good. I had Empanadas and black beans. The rice and black beans were not hot. My boy friend had the kidney beans and they were delicious. The waitstaff was not the best, not sure if I will return.
The Oakwood Cafe is a family-run lunch spot (they only offer dinner service on Friday or Saturday) in downtown Raleigh. Advertised as a Cuban restaurant and run by Argentinians, the Cafe offers excellent food of both types at very affordable prices.
You can't go wrong with any of the meat dishes, like ropa vieja or Argentinian-style steak with Chimichurri sauce, but what really stands out is the seafood. The shrimp scampi over rice (or pasta) is outstanding, and the specials usually include other fish dishes like Tilapia Milanesa (breaded and fried Tilapia) or grilled flounder.
All of the lunch entrees run from $6 to $8, and most come with two side orders. I recommend the red kidney beans, and rice with spinach.
I tend to eat at the Oakwood Cafe at least once a week, and I can't give it any higher recommendation than that.
