Less touristic than this....impossible!

Key word: sandwich. Onle few "physical" steps from Mc Donald'd and KFC but gastronomically far far away from them. Very informal place, with the open air kitchen in the middle, a square desk all around where to sit, order, eat and drink. Sandwiches, not so much else (obviously apart from beer or... read more

At a typical Chilean restaurant you can get simple grilled meat, chicken, and fish either alone or in a sandwich; canned cold green beans, lettuce /tomato salad with usually just vegetable oil as a dressing, and numerous incarnations of potato. So if that's the meal you want, they've got a good one!

There are only two outlets of Fuente Alemana. They serve "lomo" or roast beef sandwishes. Mayo is home made. Size is gigiantic. It was recommended the first time I came to Santiago and now ist a "must".

Our tour guide recommended this place in order to eat like the locals .... we went and were glad we did! You'll definitely get your money's worth and enjoy delicious Chilean style sandwiches. I liked the "Lomito Italiano:" tasty thin marinated pork meat, with abundant avocado, mayo and tomato. Have a glass of cold Chilean draft beer and you've got... More

I think this is a mix of a traditional sandwich place with a touch of German. The basic ingredientes are there, but also you can find some german sausage, sauerkraut, mixed with the local Palta, lomito, queso. Very interesting mix of food - I love it! It's not the place to sit and relax. There are few spots and not... More

You go for the sandwich. You stay for the sandwich. You leave. You will stand in line for a seat, and this is not a place for long, cheerful, chatty dining. But the experience is perfect. I will return whenever I am in Santiago.

You must try "Barros Luco" a traditional sandwich from Chile. The place is a small restaurant. You sit on bar have your sandwhich. There is no table. It is very dificult to find a chair to sit and give your order. The sandwiches are delicious, served very fast. Try also home made juices. Prices are very reasonable. The only negative... More

You have to wait for a chair to sit down and eat. The cooker didnt explain the ingredients. We said we wanted a traditional one but without avocado, then they sold us a US$12 sandwich, much more expensive than we have imagined.

This is a place for sandwiches. The waiter itself prepares the sandwich exactly as you ordered. All the ingredients are premium quality. The place is pretty busy, difficult to get a seat between 1 and 3PM and you end up eating your sandwich standing up.
