Best chivito

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

This little stand was a great place for an affordable and tasty lunch in the touristy town of Colonia del Sacramento. The lady making our hamburgers was the only one cooking but since we were after the lunch rush it didn't take too long as she carefully prepared our food. It almost felt like she was our mom making us... More

We tried the chivito which was very well prepared and delicious. Takes some time but worth the wait. Highly recommend for a small snack on the street side.

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
