Traditional street food

At Los Farolitos you can eat a genuine uruguayan chivito at a really afordable price. Also, its panchos with mozzarella are the best I've had.

OMG we just stumbled upon this place as it was close to the car rental places. It is a roadside, unexpected gem. Got practically everything on it (sooooo many options) and it was mouthwatering delicious and amazing value!

We were a group of 6 friends in Colonia for 2 days and ate lunch here both days! The Chivito was amazing and full of flavour!

if you happen to be in Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay, stop at this little (and I mean little) burger stand. Just tell him you want everything on it. Don't know what half of it was, but it was good. I did see something resembling corn on there. Well worth a stop. Just have to figure out when the one man... More

I went here as a result of the good Tripadvisor reviews. I did think twice when I saw it was little more than a kiosk on a busy road with 4/5 tables on the pavement. The one man in what looked no bigger than a small box was busy cooking and seemed little interested in whether there were customers or... More

We sat outside in the sun with two empanadas and a chivito between us, washed down with a litre of beer for around £9. Highly recommended for a cheap, cheerful and very tasty lunch.

We ate "chivito" everywhere, but this little place by far serves the best chivito sandwich we have ever tried! Don't you miss the opportunity of trying it.

Great place to stop for a quick, inexpensive bite to eat. No veggie options though so vegetarians may end up with nothing but a plate of chips.

Awesome "hole in the wall" joint away from the touristy centre of Colonial. Cheap, cheerful and incredibly tasty. If this is the only Chivito I eat in my lifetime I'll be happy. Loved it!
