The first time I ate at Frita Batidos, it was the dead of winter and, having just trudged through Downtown Ann Arbor through what felt like a foot and a half of snow, I was decidedly ready for winter to be over. Arriving at Frita Batidos, I ordered myself a beef frita and a coconut cream batido. I proceeded to spend the next hour and half sitting with my friends, our backs turned to the frost-coated window, and managed to forget — if only for a moment — that we were in the midst of a desolate Michigan winter and not enjoying our tropical street food by the beach in Cuba.

What’s more? We were able to enjoy this exercise in escapism without breaking the bank. Frita’s happy hour is perhaps the most reasonable of any business in Ann Arbor. Guests who find themselves in the restaurant between 4:00 and 6:00 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, or during the last hour of business every night will enjoy $5 beef fritas, $1.50 fries and $1 off all beers. If you’re looking to escape the cold for a bit and you’re all about those sweet deals, you can’t do better than happy hour at Frita Batidos
