Frita Batidos, the name says it all!

The Cuban sandwiches, Fritas and the shakes, Batidas, are both fantastic!! The garlic cilantro fries are to die for, probably literally if I ate as many as I want to!! Great food and atmosphere!!

I wasn't expecting much from Frita Batido's, but it turned out to be the absolute BEST burger and fries I've ever had. I ordered a beef frita, a side of garlic cilantro fries, and a lime batido. It was all amazing. Their prices are on par with a sit-down burger place, so it's definitely pricier than fast food, but nothing... More

Not a lot of quality Caribbean food options in Michigan. This is one of the best in the north. Its worth a visit.

I took my son and his friend here for dinner on Saturday night. Although super busy, and we waited 20 minutes to find a spot to sit, this has become my absolute favorite food in Ann Arbor! The chorizo burger was unreal. I cant wait to go back!

We enjoyed 3 different pulled pork style sandwiches. The fries are so yummy too. We started going when it opened and have returned several times since. Eat the Churros!!!!!

I visited this place January 15th, around 3PM. The girl behind the counter answered all of my questions and was super friendly. Food came out quickly, and the space is clean and welcoming. I ordered the black bean frita with chipotle mayo. SO delicious!!! And the fries.... Incredible. My only regret is not getting one of the delicious looking drinks.... More

My friend and I fell upon this little Gem while walking around downtown. What a find. The food was melt in your mouth good. The chorizo was perfect and the fries just added to the amazing meal! I also went with the coconut cream milkshake which was very refreshing. You order at the counter and then sit at large picnic... More

Wow. The chorizo burger is the most amazing I ever had. The garlic cilantro fries are great, could use a little less grease, but did not deter me from eating more than I should. Will definitely be back for the amazing burger.

Casual atmosphere (big long tables shared with other guests). Yummy food -- chorizo was a hit! Just be sure to have plenty of napkins -- it's messy! Variety of refreshing beverages as well. It's a popular place with UM crowd so be prepared to wait in line.

First visit with a friend who showed me the ropes. We shared Cuban street food snacks and drinks. Coconut Ginger rice was light and delicious. Loaded plantains were far from light, but so tasty. It's a variety of their Best Snack Ever, which I will try next time. I had a beer, he had a coconut cream rum yummy. Big... More
