“Great sandwichs...chilean style”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

Big sandwichs, great for a snack. Too much mayonaise in everything. Had a hot dog with avocado, cheese and mayonaise...good but still a hot dog.... my husband had a national ham sandwich...much bigger, much tastier....better choice. Place is small abd feel the smell everywhere...even when we went outside the smell acompanied me.. Overall ok, not great.

“Good 'ol traditional chilean sandwiches”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2011

This place tries to recreate the tradition of Chilean soda fountains, that are really beer+sandwich joints. There are a couple of things you don't find normally in these kind of places (arrollado which is a spicy pork roll and tongue sandwiches) which for me are the best. Ingredients are fresh and tasty, the mayo is very good and the sizes are not enormous so you can leave the place walking straight.

I found the service efficient but a bit impersonal. I sensed like an engineered clockwork as 5 different waiters served and took our plates. They had the mishap of giving us 1 fried cheese empanada cut in halves instead of 1 empanada each as was asked, but they were dilligent to send the other half (which btw it is not the best way to be served).
