Charlotte is quickly becoming one of the most diverse cities in America, with transplants coming from all over the country and immigrants coming from all over the world – especially from Latin American countries.
We decided to put together a list of the top 10 Latin and Caribbean restaurants in Charlotte (based on Yelp reviews).
They are listed geographically from North to South:
If you need some brightening up on this rainy day, pictured is one of the most beautiful sights in the QC @saborlatingrill nachos with refried beans and veggies.

Most people who live anywhere near Uptown say this place makes the best tacos, hands down. Their Elizabeth and NoDa locations are equally amazing, affordable, and authentic.
Whenever someone new comes to town, this is one of the must-go restaurants – a true NoDa staple.
On par with Maverick Rock Taco and Cantina 1511, this place has some truly incredible tex-mex tacos and burritos.
We understand that only listing one Mexican restaurant can be very controversial, but this place has very authentic Mexican offerings at great prices – and has raving Yelp reviews. Azetca and Lupitas Carniceria & Tortilleria are two other great options.
Tasty and authentic Caribbean food, and believe it or not, one of the best burgers in town!
This place offers a tasty fusion of El Salvadorian and Honduran food with Southern Mexican flare.
Colombian natives on Yelp have commented that this place offers some of the best sweet plantains, braised beef tongue, and yucca in Charlotte.
