Great food, but crowded and a bit cold

Enjoyed an amazing Cuban sandwich and churros while we were there. The service was good, and actually rather quick. This is a causal restaurant where you choose your own seats after ordering your meal at the counter. Tables are community style so you may have neighbors that aren't with your party... read more

Ann Arbor is such a fun town and Frita Batidos was a surprise find on day just strolling the city. We ordered "The Best Snack Ever" as that is a pretty lofty title and it lived up to its name.

My daughter had heard about this place and wanted to try it. Somewhat limited menu so you better like burgers and fries, but it was excellent. Chorizo burger with an egg and fries on top was exceptionally good. Black Bean burgers were the best I have ever had. A little chilly in there since it was a below zero night... More

Was here to celebrate a friends birthday. Ordered the black bean burgers and they weren't anything great. Just put 5 shoestring fries in the burger, added some condiments. Tried the chicken burger too, which wasn't anything special either. Burgers weren't filling and we felt pretty disappointed.

Came highly recommended by a student, so I thought I would try it out. Seating is at long white picnic tables with plastic cups, a jug of water and a pile of paper towels on each. They have some coat hooks on the wall, but I don't see how there would have been nearly enough if it was more crowded.... More

What a find! I can't say enough good things about Frita Batidos. Since this was my first visit, I asked a knowledgeable staff member for recommendations. Chicken or fish was my question, although Frita's is best known for their chorizo frita. Following his suggestion, I dined on a chicken frita (more flavorful than the fish, he said) and topped it...

Place is kind of cool and welcoming. However, I left very disappointed by two experiences. The first one was the "churros espanoles". They are nothing remotely close to that. I am not saying they are necessarily bad, although I honestly did not care much for them, but they are nothing similar to churros espanoles, which was disappointing since I came... More

I really love Cuban food, and I was not disappointed with Frita Batidos. The lime batido has joined several other Ann Arbor dishes on my "crave for life" list. I had the chorizo frita, and hecky yes I made it loco. Go big or go home. My boyfriend had the chicken frita with bacon and cilantro-lime salsa. We split the... More

Been to Frita Batidos a few times, never disappointed. The burgers are awesome and unique, slightly on the pricey side depending on what you're getting. But I visit every time I'm in town, their burgers hit the spot!
