Mercy Gonzalez Of El Rey De Las Fritas On The Grinder Webshow

Mercy Grinder Episode Header

Approximately 2 years I wrote a story for edible South Florida (Pages 1-2 and 3) about the Frita Cubana. I interviewed Mercy Gonzalez and her husband Gino about El Rey de las Fritas for over 2 hours. We talked a bunch about the history of the Frita Cubana in Miami and how her late Dad had started cooking them originally in Cuba. It really was very fascinating. What really caught my attention was her passion for the business her father started almost 40 years. She cares about her customers, about the product she sells and about doing everything just like her old man taught her. You possibly won’t meet a more honest and hard working restaurant (s) owner than Mercy Gonzalez. Oh and she’s also got a great sense of humor which is why I asked her to be on The Grinder.

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.
