Ortelio Cardenas

El Mago de las Fritas

Proudly working behind the griddle at El Mago de las Fritas for 33 years, Mago loves to be referred to as a cook not a chef. “Thats for the pro’s” . Always ready for conversations of current events or fishing or cooking he wants you to be part of the Mago family. Sitting atop his perch at the counter he oversees the operations and maintains that personal touch only available from a family restaurant.
