I ordered the chicken sandwich (not the beef burger) to cut down on the fat. I am SO glad I did. The spices were fabulous. I loved this meal. The restaurant was crowded when we got there, but we got lucky and found a spot for the 5 people in my party. (The seating is self seating at picnic tables,... More

I try to eat here every time I visit my son at UM. It can be very crowded at meal times, but that's because the food is great and its Cuban roots make it different from most burger places. I recommend the chorizo frita with either an egg or avocado -- the topping makes a nice balance with the spiciness... More

Order a frita (sandwich) and a batidos (drink) and extras at the counter and take a seat on one of several shared picnic benches. Our group of 3 had a chorizo burger and two pulled pork sandwiches, a sangria and two fresh lime batidos (each with a shot of added rum), and some plantain chips and salsa as starters. All... More

They have a nice menu with numerous options that are all unique in there own way. The fried plantains are great, especially loaded. Nice to have it with a limeade on the side. Fast service, and family style seating. Looking forward to going there whenever I am in Ann Arbor.

This is a fantastic "casual" restaurant with incredible, fresh, farm to table food. The order line may be long and you'll have to share your table with other customers, but it helps create an atmosphere of community. Also, the quick service typically makes up for the long lines. Their specialities are their Cuban inspired burgers and shakes, but you can't... More

Frita Batidos, Ann Arbors home of Cuban food. Easily the best Cuban sandwich I have ever had and the sweet chile mayo was excellent on the fries. That being said everything was overpriced. Especially the drinks that were served in overgrown shot glasses. Happy hour or not, the pricing on these was insulting. It is very unlikely we will return.... More

My boyfriend and I went here to grab dinner before a concert downtown. It was quite busy, and I could tell why once I tasted it! It was fairly inexpensive but we ordered a lot of different things to try. The coconut creme bantito was delicious. We also tried the ginger lime soda, crispy plantains with guacamole, a Cuban pulled... More

Wow. We are driving through from Toronto to San Francisco and decided to stop here. It was, simply, the best lunch I can ever remember eating. I had the black bean Frita with egg and salsa and could not believe how delicious it was. Friendly staff, amazing service and perfect food. Thank you!

This is one of our favorite places in Ann Arbor. The atmosphere is causal, the service is friendly and of course the food is great. We've been going to Frita since it opened, and have not been disappointed. The sandwiches are delicious. The ginger lime beverage is very refreshing (it has a good kick of ginger and is not sweet).... More

This is not authentic Cuban food but it is authentic Cuban fast food. It's very greasy. The fried plantains are so greasy they are soggy. Think SmashBurger with a Cuban twist.
