In town nearby on business and found this place on tripadvisor. Got the chivita sandwich with fries, it was ample and delicious. Ham, egg, bacon, mozzarella, tomato, lettuce, pork tenderloin on a hoagie roll. Worth the visit.

In million years, I never would have guessed that some of the best food I'd find in all of DC would be at a gas station. But that's what happened. The food is phenomenal. It is a great value. The staff keeps the place clean. The staff is very friendly. Can't really say anything else that hasn't already been said... More

I love going to fast gourmet for Chivitos and invited a friend over to taste them. While every other time I ate cheviots at fast gourmet had been absolutely fantastic and just the same as I had in Uruguay, this last time it didn't taste quite as good nor the same as other Chivitos I've tried elsewhere. I couldn't pinpoint... More

My son recently moved in to the area near this place and literally everyone told him, "DON'T MISS THE GAS STATION RESTAURANT!!!" Yes, this small, wonderful place is connected to the gas station. The sandwiches are the best in town-- love the Chivita, the BBQ chicken was amazing. There are loads of interesting choices, all very tasty with favors of... More

Who would ever believe that the sandwiches at a gas station are better than most places in the area. The skinny fries are awesome too. This place is one of those places that the folks in the neighborhood all know about but other DC folks are actively seeking out. Go try it next time you need gas but don't look... More

Had heard about the 'gas station' place; finally got over there. Large menu..cooked to order. Staff is super friendly. In fact, I had a quick chat with one of the owners (from Buenos Aires?); very pleasant man. Great place for that casual sandwich. Lots of cold drinks to choose from. Didn't order the Chivito (got a cheesesteak...and it was GOOD!),... More

I don't know if it's the combination between the weird place and the excellent products they have here, but you have to go there to try the Uruguayan food they offer. The Chivito is amazing and the Yuka (one of the sides) is out of this world! I'm planning to go back to try new dishes but I probably won't... More

I could write about how the chivito is the best sandwitch to be had in DC or how weird it is that the place is basically inside of a gas station or how the staff are super nice even when faced with a restaurant full of drunk people. But honestly, do youself a favor and just go. You won't regret... More

WOW this place is incredibly amazing. I was in town visiting for the Inauguration and a local friend took me here. When we first arrived I thought "back of a gas station...doesn't sound sanitary to me" but after walking inside my worries vanished. This place is extremely clean, extremely well lit and has very friendly employees! We ordered a Chivito... More

If you judge a book by it's cover, you would NEVER come here in a million years. First, there are neighborhoods better than this one. Second, it's inside a gas station. BUT....please, PLEASE check it out if you are a sandwich fan. The Chivito is probably one of the best sandwich I've ever had. It is a monster sandwich with... More
