Awesome lunch and great service. We stopped for lunch after reading the reviews and it was the best sandwich and fries ever. The lady who served us was so welcoming and helpful. It is a simple place but fantastic food.
The three of us really enjoyed our meal here. Very tasty Cuban fast food. Probably the sweetest staff of any restaurant we have visited in years. They genuinely appreciate your business. Support your local restaurants the best you can in these times. The chains come...and go, but places like this are an institution, and they back it up with great food.More
I found this place in a "best burgers around the USA" kind of a list ad figured I would give it a shot now that some places are opening up after Covid-19.
All staff wore masks and there were hand sanitizer bottles spread out on...the counter for customers and staff to use.
I ordered the original Frita and was surprised. The burger paddy is NOT chorizo but it taste like it. It is spicy but not too much for my taste. It was moist but not fatty.
I also got a side order of fries.
I left there full but without feeling nauseous as I sometimes do after eating a burger.
The Frita was a good size and not greasy.
Will come back and try more from their menuMore
We always research places to eat before traveling. If it wasn’t for the high rating & good reviews i would have missed this restaurant completely.The decor is outdated and simple but the food is fantastic. The place is a little small but comfortable. Without doubt...a stop worth your time. Friendly, warm and helpful staff. Be prepared for long wait for food- about 45 min but everything is made from scratch and fresh. Definitely worth being patient!!! Their Cuban coffee is one of the best I have ever had. It goes without saying that we will be back when visiting Miami..More
Frita, frita, and more frita’s.
Very friendly staff. Was the first place we ate at in Miami and was definitely a great choice. Very close to airport hotels also. Uber’d over for $6 and walked back to hotel.
My wife and I came here for an evening meal at the tail end of a trip around central- southern Florida and a music cruise. We were looking for something Cuban in a family owned, cafe type setting. We found it here. The lovely staff...explained that the signature sandwich was a family recipe from Cuba. We each had that plus some fried plantains and a cuban beer (a Mexican coke for me). Simple, but very executed, presented in a family-owned setting. We don’t have enough of this in America anymore where normally what we see is endless chain fast food places or restaurants where the food just gets dumbed down over time. Visit El Mago de las Fritas for a warm welcome and a fine sandwich.More

The decor is outdated and simple but the food is fantastic! I don’t like beef so I didn’t try their...traditional bestselling sandwich but my husband raved about the seasoning and flavour.
I had the chicken sandwich which was fresh, and delicious. The fried plantain tasted yummy with the sauces on the table (I liked it more than the fries).
The waitress and everyone who works there are welcoming, warm and friendly. She gave us the beef sandwich for free just so the guys could try it and told us all about the restaurant’s history and dishes.
The mango smoothie was also fabulous.
I will definitely be back.More
I must admit if driving around I'd never stop to eat here. But, we came here on purpose due to great TA reviews. While parking in front, my kids asked if I'm sure this is a good place to eat.
It's a pretty simple with...no attractive ambiance place to eat, but a kind and smiling waitress warmed our hearts recommending us what to order. As the first comers we ordered regular frittas burgers and were pretty amazed with its taste. My son even ordered na extra one. Also, the sweet plantains were great as a starter.
We were lucky to meet the owner, an elderly man who's a local icon, very long in business and who even had a chance to serve president Obama.More
A great place to eat lunch. You feel like you're part of the family and although you may not know anyone.... you feel like you're eating lunch with family & friends!!! The food is authentic & delicious.
