I was lost, couldn't find anything good. The housemaid at my hotel told me I had to go here. I have trouble with the language, but they had an English menu. OMG these are the best sandwiches. Get the Lomito, and pay for the palta (avocado) mayo, tomato, and if you like sauerkraut, yea! These are huge. You don't need... More

I stopped at Fuente Alemana on the tail end of a trip to Chile and was very glad I did. I had overlooked this one initially, but was instantly pleased. Based on my stop there during lunchtime I can tell you that this is a place the locals love, and it's easy to see why. The lomito is a great... More

I have been lucky enough to travel around the world and I discovered that us chilean have a big sandwich culture: we have them for breakfast, lunch, tea time or just when having a coffee. Fuente Alemana is for me one of the best places for you to enjoy this part of our culture. Sandwiches there are huge, really generous... More

If you visit Chile, this place is a must. Don't expect anything fancy, you are just going to eat a sandwich. But it's going to be a memorable one. Try the Lomito Completo (with tomato, mayonnaise, sauerkraut), or the Lomito Palta (palta is the chilean for avocado, which is great in sanwiches) and enjoy a Schop (tap beer) and you'll... More

I saw many good reviews here so I decided to check it. The place is cool, very german! But I think I didn't order the best choice. It was a little tasteless, but as I said, I think I ordered the wrong sandwich. I recommend!

The place is always and busy, but once you enter you can see why... delicious "lomitos" and "churrascos" everywhere. Every dish you see you want to try it. Excellent customer service, very fast. Overall great experience and very good value for money.

Huge meat sandwiches piled with mayo, avocado, and mustard, tall glasses of dark beer, diner style atmosphere, what more could I ask for? Ok, maybe a little mayo, but that's part of the experience at this classic Santiago establishment. Barros Luco is my favorite sandwich and I love everything else.

Santiago seems to be all about sandwich lunches and fuente alemana is a classic sandwich restaurant. You sit at a bar disk and someone will likely stand behind you waiting to get your seat. The sandwiches are very large with lots of avocado and mayo (palta mayo). The service is fast and the food is good, for what it is.

While in Santiago, I had to try the famous Lomito from Fuente Alemania. I had seen it on a travel show and it sounded good. I had the Lomito completo which is a decent sized sandwich of sliced pork with a serving of toppings included a heap of mayo. It may not be the largest sandwhich here in Chile but... More
