I would not recommend this place at all. First of all when we walked in every worker just stood there staring at us not saying a word, the lady at the front register just sat there on her phone not even acknowledging us, and this was early in the morning when there was only one other person in the restaurant....

I had visited this location once 3.5 years ago on a previous visit to Santiago and loved my lomito completo. Craving it again based on those fond memories, I knew I had to stop in despite being in Santiago only 36 hours. Unfortunately, Fuente Alemana is closed on Sundays, so after a full day of working, with only a few... More

This restaurant feels chileno, from the women who make your towering, mouth-watering sandwiches to the men who serve you your spilling, frothy beer. Come for the food and stay for the atmosphere!

One of the best Lomito sandwhich that I ever ate. The place is small but they always find a room to a customer when they are full. Very nice variety of beers as well.

If you do one thing when you visit Santiago, go to Fuente Alemana and order a Lomito for lunch. This delicious pork sandwich can be topped with a variety of toppings such as tomato, avocado, cheese, or mayonnaise. I chose to keep it simple with tomato and avocado. This was literally one of the best sandwiches I have ever had... More

I don't know why American college towns haven't embraced the Chilean lomito. It's the perfect sandwich to soak up alcohol after a long night out with the boys and this place serves up among the best. Most of the seats are at a counter surrounding the service area where the sandwiches are prepared and it's quite a show.

Amazing plce. It is about eating !!! Places set around a central serving area, reminiscent of movie scenes of the trading floor on Wall Street, Also along the outside walls. Capped and gowned servers take your order, which is scribbled on a piece of paper. They yell when its ready. They serve MONUMENTAL sandwiches, one being more than enough for... More

Place is a combination of local and German fast food. Busy at lunchtime and also in the evening. Burger I had was a Barros Luco, a typical local beef sandwich with sauerkraut. The burger was indeed excellent, and the service was agile and efficient. A group of elder ladies are cooking in plain sight of the customers which gives it... More

This is the way to order a great sandwich at Fuente Alemana. If you want it wrapped in paper to eat holding it, ask it "a antigua". I had lunch there yesterday and Neli was there to prepare the sandwich for us. The place gets packed after 12:30, so be prepared to order your sandwich in a crowded place. But... More

There’s no hostess, so grab a seat when it opens up. Ask one of the ladies behind the counter for a menu. On it you’ll see that you can “build” your sandwich choosing which ingredients you want (ex: chicken, tomato, avocado) or you can order a “completo” which is fully loaded (but was also drowning in too much sauce). The... More
