Half the price of the surrounding restaurants but double the flavour! A messy yet tasty delight and service with a smile. Enjoy!!

I stumbled across this place wanting quick, reasonably priced food and that's exactly what I got with amazing taste, so much so I've been back 3 times We have tried the steak sandwich and the beef schnitzel and both are so tasty. I highly recommended you try this place for local fast food :)

Fantastic food and incredibly value for money. If you can either fight your way past all the locals or queue patiently you will be rewarded with the best street food in colonia. The panquelina is the best ever tasted, however every other thing we ordered was also fantastic. We mainly had no idea what we were eating, so pretty much... More

As others have reported, an excellent Chivito - probably due to the quality and tenderness of the steak.

We stopped by this place as we were walking from the ferry station to the town center to have a quick bite and the Chivito sandwich was great (you can think of it as a hamburger but instead of ground meat you have a thinly cut steak). The owner was also very nice and friendly. This is not a fancy... More

As a lover of chivitos I thought I'd better try this place that everyone says has "the best in Uruguay". They're not bad and it's one of the few places anywhere I found that actually has a hot sauce, but the best in Uruguay? No way. I thought it was pretty decent street food, nothing too special. It was a... More

We have travelled through Uruguay formtwo weeks tasting many chivitos in various places. This one was definitely the best! It is worth every penny.

We were in South America for a month And in search of The best burger/Chivito. The ones at Los Farolitos were by far the best!! And for The best price!! The steak was very tender. The only negative would be that we had To finish!! We could have easily eaten 2 each they were so yummy.

This is the place to order an Uruguayan chivito with everything (egg, ham, cheese, pickled vegetables, and all kinds of interesting and/or spicy toppings and sauces). Great meal, be sure to have a Coke with it. They make sure all the grease is patted off but even so it's unlikely the bun will last through the end of your meal.....that's... More
