About
Cuban restaurant in South East Little Havana Miami, FL crafting authentic and savory flavors with an American twist. Serving Miami since 1976. We have been a Miami staple for over 40 years and an Icon of the Hispanic-Miami Culture. Our specialty dish is the original frita cubana, a Cuban style beef patty with sauteed onions, piled high with crispy shoe string fries resting on a fluffy Cuban Roll.

Trip Advisor did us a solid by recommending this find. Fritas, palomitas, batidas, flan. Clean, bright, socially distant, patient & kind staff. Delicious!

Fast service, great tasty food Cuban style, and good prices. If you order fast food like a sandwich, or a regular meal, you will be satisfied at the end. The big guava empanadas are really like the ones I ate in Cuba been a child.the...sandwiches are big and taste great, but their specialty is the frita, which to me is the best frita in MiamiMore

Don’t let the little size fool you. It’s filling and has a lot of favors for a little sandwich. Friendly staff and Quick service. This is a must stop while in little Havana.

This is more of a Cuban fast-food restaurant than a sit down place, but their menu was pretty extensive, the food was tasty (maybe a bit dry) and inexpensive. The location gives you an opportunity to cruise through Little Havana. Bring cash, they do not...accept credit cards, but worth the stop.More

Being few nights before at the iconic Mago de Las Fritas, we came upon this one in Little Havana. This one, el Rey is in a prime tourist location in a touristy Calle Ocho. It differs from the Mago, as it's more commercial and the...ambiance is in style of a classic American diner. Also, being in that location the prices are slightly higher. However, the Cuban food is excellent, very delicious with excellent frittas and it's a nice place to have a break while exploring little Havana.More
