“Amazing”
Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

I went to el mago based on reviews and recommendations by Burger Beast. I have to say its worth the hype. If I could have rated the service higher I would have. Super friendly and helpful. Hsd the frita, chicharonnes and soup. All delicious all priced at a value.

“Cuban hamburger”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

This place makes a Cuban original hamburger a frita. It is a good nostalgic place to eat a frita. Parking can be a problem since it is on a major street. The service I is good and the menu is limited.

“Best Cuban hamburger in miami "Frita" ! .”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

El Mago never disappoints . The Fritas are always fresh and Delicious with plenty of fries just the way I like them. El Mago , his daughter Belkis and Barry always make you feel welcomed. El Mago always has their regular locals and tourist of course who leave with a smile. Don't forget to have a Guanabana / Mango shake it's my favorite. Thank You MAGO you are a definite staple in Little Havana.

“El Mago is a Genius!”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

El Mago de las Fritas is a quintessential Miami locale featuring the BEST Cuban burgers and other Cuban fare....the tiny establishment is homey and El Mago himself makes EVERYTHING by hand! U will NOT be disappointed! Parking is at a premium so you may have to park on the residential street behind the restaurant.

“Best Frita in Miami”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

I love Fritas (Cuban Burguers), and Mago's are the best I had in Miami. Their "secret formula" for the meat is great, with a very good taste. Also the Pan con Bistec (Steak Sandwich) is fantastic. The Batidos (Shakes) are incredible. My favorites are Guanábana (Soursop) and Malteada (Malt). Place is clean and service is good. Visit it and you will see why El Mago is a staple of Miami.
