Bongos Cuban Café’s Frita Cubana Burger

Bongos Cuban Cafe at Downtown Disney West Side is one of my favorite restaurants to visit at the shopping district, but one that I don’t visit enough.

Bongos is the real deal, and with some time to visit during lunch, I stopped by to see if anything I hadn’t tried would stand out to me.

Surprise, something did! When I read the description for the Frita Cubana Burger, I had to order it: a double patty and cheese Cuban burger made of pork, beef and chorizo served with onions, fresh shoestring potatoes served on a warm bun with plantain chips.

Bongos Cuban Cafe Express Window: Appetizers

In Downtown Disney’s West Side, tucked to the left next to the main entrance to Bongos Cuban Cafe, is a take-out window where you can order sandwiches, such as the delicious Media Noche, as well as some awesome soups, salads, appetizers and entrees served inside the restaurant.

Normally served in a paper tray, I asked for the items to go and they were placed into a styrofoam box instead (this is perfect if you want to try some food from Bongos but are heading back to your resort!). Since the items are kept under a heat lamp, I was cashed out and headed back to the truck in just a few minutes.
