Description: Breafast, Lunch, Dinner. A unique take-out dine-in establishment just steps from the famous Duval Street. Cuban street food is served up from the outdoor mobile grill under one of Key West's most magnificent bougainvillea trees glowing with twinkling lights at dusk. Tasty beverages homemade flan, and baked goods are created within the adjacent historic conch house under the close scrutiny of local wild roosters. The Frita is a heavenly burger with origins in 1930's Cuba where they were considered a native street food. They are a mouthwatering blend of beef and pork burger seasoned with Spanish spices, topped with a special sauce and crispy fried julienne potatoes, all sandwiched on a Cuban bun. Salty, savory, sweet and crunchy. Additionally there are Cuban inspired tacos with fillings such as guava glazed pork, Local fish and shrimp, and chicken. Empanadas are house made all day and night long. The decor at Frita's is influenced by another famed latin icon - Frida Kahlo - where the art on the wall reflects her style and of course her famous unibrow!

Great food! We tried the Fritas Burger, Frita Garlic Shrimp Burger and the chorizo caramelized onion Arepas and were very impressed!! The Sangria was also excellent and was as good as the Sangria we had in Spain! The service was also top notch! Highly recommend this restaurant!

Had our Cuban sandwich and excellent coffee for brunch, superb flavor and great atmosphere. Topped it off with churros and a sweet dipping sauce that was A+. No better place for authentic "Key West" food- we go there often!

Loved the cubano sandwhich from this café. The food is made in a food cart and brought to you, but it was a delicious sandwhich with all the fixings!

This restaurant is right off of Duval Street and is a great find. Cuban Banh Mi was delicious. Pork was very tender and just the right amount of pickled veggies and cilantro. Also make sure to get an ear of the grilled corn with spicy chipotle sauce and cheese. Will go again and try their other sandwiches.

Lunch stop while touring around Key West. Absolutely incredible food. Sandwiches all around. They were all awesome. The roasted corn is also really good. If you're walking around, you need to stop here.
