5 out of 5 stars

Miami's frita OG is recognized around the world for its perfectly cooked Cuban hamburgers—featuring a heavily spiced patty made of pork and beef that's sandwiched between buttery Cuban bread and topped with a heaping pile of shoestring potatoes. From President Obama to Guy Fieri, loads of celebrities have stopped in to taste the popular sandwich, which Ortelio Cárdenas (aka El Mago) has been making by hand for nearly 30 years.
