Miami New Times' Description

At El Rey de las Fritas on Calle Ocho, the Cuban hamburger is king. Known as the frita cubana, the burger pairs a spicy beef patty with shoestring potatoes, onions, and ketchup, stuffed inside a Cuban-style bun. El Rey, a locally owned restaurant chain that has expanded with several locations across Miami since its debut in 1982, serves fritas with a kick. In the frita dulce ($4.50), fried, blistered chunks of sweet plantain crown beef, in addition to papas fritas, onions, and ketchup. In the B.S. frita ($5.50), the hamburger gets two more additions: slabs of crisp bacon and gooey Swiss cheese. Pair any of those with the shop's batidos, and call it a meal.

    El Original and still as great as you remembered it!

    Sit at the counter. Order a frita con queso. Wash it down with a batido de mamey. Smile.

    At El Mago de las Fritas, the hamburger is made up of a patty mixed with fresh-ground spiced sausage, layered with thin fried potatoes, and all plunked between two slabs of soft white bread.

    Open since the 1960’s, this restaurant is where El Mago de las Fritas got its start. Try the frita, topped with homemade thin fried potatoes. As seen on Travel Channel’s Burger Land.
