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!

Really liked Frita Batidos a lot. In my brief Ann Arbor tour it as the best place I ate and fairly priced. It is essentially a modified Cuban restaurant, where you line up along a counter and order your beverage, main course and sides. You then repair to a communal table and wait for a couple of minutes to receive... More

I heard about this restaurant from my economics teacher. He said it was really good. Than a good friend of mine and her boyfriend went and they told me it was really good, so I went there with my boyfriend. We liked it a lot. The fritas were good (Cuban version of a hamburger) and the batidos were too (Cuban... More

This is a fun unique location in Ann Arbor, great fresh and tasty food. The milkshakes are really good as well as the sandwiches, we went on a game day and it was a bit busy but totally worth standing in line for. Casual eatery with fast quick service.

When I dream about food, I know it's exceptional. This was the case recently when I ordered the "Best Snack Ever" and nearly swooned over this decadent mix of ginger/coconut rice, black beans, cheese, fresh tomato, cilantro spiced with just enough of a kick to wake my tongue - all in generous portion. My sister and her husband agreed and... More

An incredibly delicious, sloppy-fun meal. Frita Batidos is my teenage boys' favorite restaurant, and one of mine too. It's got a great, casual vibe--happily noisy and busy most of the time--and amazing food. The fritas are basically burgers made with various meats and delicious toppings ranging from french fries to flavored mayos to fried eggs. The batidos make for some... More
