Call Your Cardiologist: "El Mago de las Fritas" Debuts New Double-Frita

El Rey de las Fritas. Don Pan. Versailles. For some reason, Cuban joints in Miami have really boastful names; it takes a restaurant with cojones to actually prove it.

For 25 years, "El Mago de las Fritas", located at 5828 SW 8th Street, has shown Miami that its bark matches its delicious, greasy bite. This Saturday, the place is celebrating its silver anniversary with the unveiling of the frita doble -- double the ground beef, onion, paprika, fried, calorie-infused goodness (what do you think about that, Bobby Flay?).

From 7 to 9:30 p.m., Miami's little treasure will not only serve Cuban burgers, but el mago will also hold raffles for prizes, like free Jupina. How perfect is that?

Tip: Make sure to get to Calle Ocho early -- you're going to need a siesta after eating this monster.
