“Best Uruguayan Chivito in Argentina by far.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

Uruguayan Chivito, a steak sandwich loaded with mozzarella cheese, egg, bacon, green olives and other ingredients is best eaten in Uruguay. My quest for this delicatessen led me to many, many places in Argentina. Nobody understood that one of the main secrets is in the bread. Chivito Jose understood this so it worth a trip when you are in Buenos Aires. It is somehow 25 km away from downtown. Better eaten without the french fries, which are not very good. Prices are very reasonable. I am probably biased...I go there every weekend when in Buenos Aires. Never tried anything else so I cant comment.

Fast food, without the fast and big plates, but full of french fries.

“Favorite place for lunch in Buenos Aires”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2011

I lived next to Chivito Jose for five years. They are some of the best steak sandwiches you will ever have. No trip to Buenos Aires it complete without it. Their chivito sandwich has skirt steak, bacon, lettuce, roasted red peppers, hard boiled egg, and mozzarella cheese.
