Located off of Bird Rd, El Rey de las Fritas is a must for anyone in the area. It's located right next to Bird Bowl and is a small little cafe with a to-go window. It is extremely authentic and is famous for their "Frita". By definition, a Frita is a Cuban sandwich made up of a seasoned ground beef and pork patty on Cuban bread topped with shoestring potatoes. It's definitely not the healthiest meal to eat, however, it is very delicious.
I'm at pretty consecutive customer at El Rey de las Fritas. I've been going every few months for years now. It's one of my brother and my favorite. It's a perfect place to eat at and pass time when you're waiting for your extremely long wait time to bowl. The buzzer for Bird Bowl will even buzz if you're inside of the restaurant. They have a few other things on the menu, but I just don't see the point of not ordering a Frita, especially considering the place's name. The vibe when you walk in is very friendly and openning. To order, you have to speak Spanish(or at least try) or you can just point to the pictures on the wall. It's one of those places that prefers cash. However, most of the items on the menu are fairly cheap anyway.
El Rey de las Fritas has the best Fritas in Miami, hands down. Once you try one you will be hooked! It's worth the drive, especially since you can bowl too.
