Best Frita Cubanas

La Frita Cubana, or just Frita for short, holds an exceptional place in my heart.

If you’ve never eaten one and are a fan of Burgers, then you should probably really get with the program.

The Frita is a regional South Florida specialty. Large Cuban communities like Miami & Tampa, Florida, and parts of California & New Jersey are the best areas to find Fritas.

In some menus across the U.S., it is a Cuban Hamburger.

My book All About the Burger, has the full history of La Frita Cubana if you want to dig deeper.


BEST FRITA CUBANA

This list was not just thrown together throughout one night.

I retried all the Fritas not only here in the list but many others who didn’t make it.

I take this Top Frita list very seriously because I know that folks do indeed use them as guides.

One side note, if the restaurant did not make its julienne potato crisps, then they were never even under consideration, no canned potato sticks allowed.
