The menu at El Rey De Las Fritas is full of authentic and savory flavors with an American twist. While their menu is vast, this basic, retro counter-serve restaurant is best known for its original frita Cubana. Served on a fluffy Cuban roll, this Cuban-style burger is made with a ground beef patty and is topped with sautéed onions and crispy shoestring fries. What truly sets their frita apart is their secret tomato-based sauce! Infused directly into the patty, this secret ingredient is what founder Victoriano “Benito” Gonzalez liked to call “La Formula”. In total, their menu boasts six varieties of frita Cubana and you truly can’t go wrong with ordering any one of them. We recommend ordering a frita original combo with a batido, which is essentially a thick Cuban shake. This is one of the best meal combinations available in Miami! Open for both lunch and dinner, there is never a bad time to stop by El Rey De Las Fritas.
