El Rey De Las Fritas in Hialeah, Florida

When speaking about Frita history this El Rey De Las Fritas location is historically significant. This was 2nd location opened after the flagship store on 8th Street. If you take a close look at the picture above you can actually see the original “Rey” character to the left of the sign. Inside the location is also the original banner used at the 1st location that burned down some years ago.

I’ve had a Frita at El Rey so many times I can’t keep count but I had never tried their Frita a Caballo.So what’s a growing boy to do but order it? If you’re not familiar with the “a Caballo” phenomenon then you don’t know what you’re missing. Whenever you’re at a Cuban joint in Miami, ask to have your sandwich or steak etc… a Caballo. You’ll be treated to a delicious fried egg cooked to your liking on top of your meal. So getting back to my Frita…

You will always hear me talking about how a Frita should not have cheese on it but this is one of those cases where the cheese is necessary. Imagine having the most delicious egg and cheese sandwich on a Cuban roll and sneaking in a perfectly seasoned patty that compliments the sandwich. Well, that’s what you have here and if you haven’t had this then you haven’t really lived.

About Burger Beast

I started writing the Burger Beast food blog to tell folks about those little forgotten gems in South Florida. Over the course of the last 5 years or so I've added News, Opinions, & Tips on a variety of Food related subjects. My first love will always be Burgers but Comfort Food is where it's at. At the end of the day I’m a regular dude who writes about a bunch of things I think you should know about.
