“Jamon jamon.”
Reviewed May 1, 2012

Standing room only dining, more like a snack stop really. Loud. You need to yell to order food otherwise the din makes you even hungrier. Yell oh- jai! and someone will take your order of Serrano or Iberico. I don't know much of Spanish hams but boy, they were good!

“Not a museum”
Reviewed March 12, 2012

Bar specialised in ham. Borderline rude service after a long wait at a high price.

“This is an inexpensive eatery”
Reviewed October 7, 2011

This is a chain of food bistros. They all seem set up a little differently but basically you stand at the counter, order your inexpensive food, stand and munch away, pay and leave.
We had a beer and snack when we arrived in Madrid. Good fun to see this busy place.
We tried a breakfast next. Good value. Coffee, toast/sweet bun, fresh squeezed orange juice for 3E. We later found a better place near the Atoche metro station for breakfast.
We tried a hamburger at one of these places, fail.
