I loved this place! The Frita Cubana (Cuban hamburger) with egg was one of the best burgers I have ever had! I also had my first plantains here as well as cuban coffee, both of which was delicious. All in all this place may have been the best bang for my buck I've ever had at a restaurant.

Idk how I even came across this place, but wow the sandwiches are great! Really big, reasonably priced, and the fries are really sinfully good haha. Just do it, it's worth it, you won't regret it. Snag an Instapark lot and roam around after, cool area.

Fast and friendly service. Options for the gluten free/carb conscious folk. Definitely the tastiest, most juiciest Frita. The double a Caballo is tasty, but I'm going to have to go triple next time. The burger patties aren't big, so don't hesitate on supersizing because you won't regret it. And for the hot, spicy palates: the home made hot sauce is very tasty and hot. The homemade pineapple, mayo sauce is a nice touch, as well. Politics aside, but when "the President" has to stop at El Mago for a Frita, that's the Seal of Approval!

Visited here with my family. Good food and fast service. Friendly staff. It's a busy place. Was full during lunch time on a weekday. Was surprised. Recommend for a quick tasty Cuban meal.

For years this place has been here! Never fails to serve the best Cuban hamburgers, we call fritas! A great way to taste something authentically Cuban. Don't forget dessert afterwards...dulce de leche! Yummy!
