Frommer's Star Ratings About Our System Frommer's ranks every hotel, restaurant, attraction, shop, and nightlife establishment it reviews for quality, value, service, amenities, and special features using a star-rating scale, an expression of the strong compare-and-contrast opinions that are a brand hallmark. Other ratings provide stars based primarily on price and amenities; the Frommer's star rating is meant to quantify the kind of intangible, experiential elements that help travelers make informed decisions. The "baseline" recommendation is zero stars--every hotel, restaurant, attraction, shop, and nightlife establishment that Frommer's chooses to review is recommended; otherwise, we simply wouldn't include it.
With a restaurant on every corner, we once calculated that it would take us about18 months – eating at three restaurants a day – to try them all! So this is NOT an all inclusive list of EVERY Cuban and Latin restaurant in Miami. These are our personal favorites, and the places where we take our closest friends. Surprise!
For the locals, the frita is also the worst kept secret in town, as evidenced by the lines that form every day. Join the masses on a Saturday night as they worship at the altar of the perfect frita: El Rey de Las Fritas on Bird Road in Westchester. Squeezed into a corner of a strip mall and sharing space with a busy bowling alley and a store with a large sign that promises “Puppies, Puppies, Puppies,” El Rey de Las Fritas is the quintessential hole-in-the-wall restaurant. If not for the crowds at lunch and early evening, the average person would probably pass right by.
