Any Good Pizza Parlor in Cary?

Suzy Q, try Tony's in Raleigh off Glenwood Ave.We order a large pie, slices are super big, my kids are pretty picky when it comes to pizza, it's the only pizza they like around here. Most Saturdays we drive about 30 minutes and head over to Tony's. I haven't been disappointed yet.

For the ultimate Gelato experience try Henry's Gelato in Cary at the intersection of Cary Parkway and James Jackson Rd. in Preston Walk.
The gelato is fantastic, the lemon and chocolate are to die for. Some of the unique flavors they make are cantaloupe and pink grapefruit and some traditional flavors Bacio (chocolate/hazelnut), tiramisu and espreso.Try it the staff is extremely friendly and best of all they give free samples.

Any good Latino, Cuban or Spanish food in the Triangle?

Most spanish/Latino products can be purchased at the Super Compare Supermarket in Durham. The chain supermarket is from NY and they carry many Latino products as well as tropical fruits and vegetables, including yuca, plantains,mangoes etc. They carry many spanish spices to make delicious spanish food.

I have shopped there a few times. They run weekly specials and their prices are pretty decent.
