My husband and I love this place and visit every time we're in Ann Arbor. The food is just really, really good. Our favorite is the chorizo burgers and the pulled pork. The side dishes are all very good also, from the "Best Snack Ever" to the plantain chips with avocado spread. Atmosphere is community picnic tables but that just... More

Frits Batidos is an individually owned restaurant. The owner has previously only owned upscale restaurants (Eve). This is a burger and shake place similar, in many ways, to Shake Shack. Similar prices to SS. Has a Cuban touch to it. You stand in line to order, food is brought to you when ready. Fairly good food, but the seating is... More

The burgers are absolutely yummy! I am glad we found this place for lunch. All the add-on's make it much better. Great for Vegetarians.

Authentic Cuban noms in an adorable setting. Fresh food, options for all dietary needs, and killer twice-fried plantains. You could just serve me those plantains as a meal and I would be content, tbh.

The frita is a sandwich. Whatever meat or bean you choose is made into a patty. Then, they have delicious shoestring fries and it is on an egg bun with some kind of mayo. My chicken one came with lemon-scented mayo. It was an interesting sandwich on a nice egg bun. We also got plantain chips with avocado (which is... More

The food was amazing. I had no clue what to expect from them. But then, it was ine of the best pulled pork sandwich I have ever had. The ambiance is very nice too. Totally worth the time.

The food here is really amazing. I'm not really sure how to describe it - but it's really good. Basically, you order a base sandwich and then add to it ... fried egg, mango salsa, etc ..... It was extremely busy the night we were there (a Thursday night) and it gets a little warm in the restaurant, but it... More

Actually Frita Batidos catered my son's Engagement Party! What unique and tasty foods. Given my wife's background - she's Cuban - she could tell that all of the foods they prepared were authentic to the letter. Remarkable stuff, from fried plantains to Caribbean Coleslaw , and pulled pork to name a few.

The group I was with all found the place and food amazing and fun. The food is not typical and therefore first time ordering can be challenging but the counter folks are patient, and willing to talk you through.

Wow. My taste buds are so pleased. The food and drink I had were nothing short of amazing ( I know the word is overused, but...). I highly recommend the Best Snack Ever (cause it is) which combines rice, black beans, salsa, etc., the garlic fries (go for the large order, you can run it off later) and beef frita,... More
