May daughter and I went here at 3 in the afternoon when I dropped her off before the semester started. Miraculously, there was no line. The hardest part about Frita Batidos is that so many things looked good that I wanted everything on the menu! I opted for the burger with the fixings and an egg on top---so decadent but... More

One of the best restaurants in Ann Arbor. Food is great and healthy too! Too bad it's not bigger cause it does get crowded in the peak hours. However staff is quick and you don't wait for anything too long

Avoid peak hours and you'll probably be fine! Huge portions and spicy garlic fries are things you can look forward to, along with amazing flavors and a slightly confusing ordering style. Literally everything has cilantro, so if you're not a fan, be aware that you might be able to order a grilled cheese and fries but the rest of the... More

What a great discovery!! With a son attending the University of Michigan, we find ourselves traveling to Ann Arbor several times a semester. Ann Arbor is filled with interesting places and good places to eat but Frita Batidos is really a treat! Delicious, unique, freshly made food with a wonderful variety of flavors. Casual ordering and seating but a great... More

Excellent food and a unique dining experience (all of the walls and tables are white.) Busy on Friday nights, so be ready to stand in line (but it's worth it!) Try "the best snack ever" with chorizo sausage and a lime batido.

Passing by the place with a friend, I would not have thought much of it, had she had not already attended and acclaimed the restaurant so highly. The environment is small and unassuming -- some picnic and bar tables, a couple of bathrooms, and a menu composed simply of some Cuban dishes and appetizers, as well as smoothies. I ordered... More

Unique food in Ann Arbor- clean and inviting atmosphere. Delicious frita- be sure to add fun toppings in addition to the french fries (try the egg and guacamole, etc!). Would highly recommend the Coconut Batido, one of the most delicious things I've ever had. Garlic cilantro fries are famous for a reason!

This is by far my favorite eats in Ann Arbor. Don't be afraid to "make it loco" with all the possible toppings on it. The combination of all those flavors on the same frita is awesome. The garlic cilantro fries are incredible. Staff has always been friendly and very responsive to please the customers. The prices are very reasonable and... More

Great Cuban inspired food in the heart of Ann Arbor. Small space with primarily large table communal seating (there are some bar tables along the wall and a table outside for those who want to rave the elements and/or bring a dog). The restaurant is VERY popular and there are frequently long lines (especially at lunch). Don't be afraid, however.... More

Eve is an amazing chef, arguably the BEST in A2 and her places do a great job. The food and the space are both amazing, and you would not go wrong with any of the items ordered.
