Most Miami gas station food consists of shrivelled hotdogs and sketchy Jamaican beef patties, but El Carajo is a gas station where you’ll actually want to eat. Past the pumps, candy, and cigarettes, there’s a really great Spanish restaurant in the back, where you can order a pulpo al ajillo you’ll absolutely finish, bacon-wrapped dates, and fluffy Spanish omelettes. There’s also a ton of wine for sale here, which you can buy for your meal at retail price plus a $10 corkage fee.
