Meet The King of The Fritas

El Rey de las Fritas in Little Havana is home to the best burger in the state, Food Network Magazine says. Have one taste of the Frita Burger and it would be hard to disagree.

The real king of burgers lives in Little Havana.

El Rey De Las Fritas (translation "The King of the Fried Burgers") was named casa of the best burger in the state by Food Network Magazine on Wednesday.

The burger that had judges salivating was, of course, the Frita Burger, which is a mouthful of meat, cheese and sides piled high on a single bun.

For those who haven't had the pleasure of tackling the burger, you'd better eat your Wheaties before stepping up to the challenge.

The burger is a compilation of thin beef and chorizo patties, countless shoestring fries, and what burger would be complete without a secret tomato-based sauce.

The King of the Fried Burger, which has six locations across Miami, will be featured in the summer issue of Food Network magazine, which hits stands on May 5.
