Went for an evening light bite and was pleasantly surprised at just how good this place is! My wife and I both had the pork tacos. The food and service were fantastic, small place with limited seating but well worth it to stay or go.

Breafast, Lunch, Dinner. A unique take-out dine-in establishment just steps from the famous Duval Street. Cuban street food is served up from the outdoor mobile grill under one of Key West's most magnificent bougainvillea trees glowing with twinkling lights at dusk. Tasty beverages homemade flan, and baked goods are created within the adjacent historic conch house under the close scrutiny of local wild roosters. The Frita is a heavenly burger with origins in 1930's Cuba where they were considered a native street food. They are a mouthwatering blend of beef and pork burger seasoned with Spanish spices, topped with a special sauce and crispy fried julienne potatoes, all sandwiched on a Cuban bun. Salty, savory, sweet and crunchy. Additionally there are Cuban inspired tacos with fillings such as guava glazed pork, Local fish and shrimp, and chicken. Empanadas are house made all day and night long. The decor at Frita's is influenced by another famed latin icon - Frida Kahlo - where the art on the wall reflects her style and of course her famous unibrow!
