This place is amazing. It reminds me of Schwartz's Deli in Montreal. It's like stepping back in time. Go there for lunch, order one of the amazing sandwiches and a beer, sit back and enjoy the action. The waitresses are sweet "old dolls" who are fabulous.
It's worth the wait for a seat at the counter.
You will not be disappointed.

It appeared to be a place where the local working class people visited during lunchtime for a wholesome meal and quick drink. Try the rumano, this burger was simply overflowing with goodness! After a heavy hearty meal, wash it down with the beer on the tap, very refreshing!

This is a perfect way to experience what locals like to eat. It is an institution so for that reason alone it is worth a trip. The food was good but don't expect something life altering, it is more about the ambiance of the place than the food. I botched my order on my first trip and had a mediocre sandwich, reasoning being this place gets super packed from 2-4 pm. You need to elbow your way to the main counter and practically yell to one of the ladies in the center with your order. So that resulted in a lack luster sandwich. I decided to try it again and this time I went a bit before the rush at 1:30, but trust me it was still busy. Second time was the charm, I ordered a Lomito Italiano and a schopp. The Lomito is what they are famous for, a beef sandwich and the 'Italiano' style means topped with tomatoes, avocado and mayo. Schopp is a term they use for beer and in this case is their own draft beer. I would say my second experience was a lot more enjoyable. A few tips: try and sit at the square bar area it is such a treat to watch the ladies make the sandwiches at the center grill. When you are finished eating find the woman that served you ask for el boleto (ticket) and be prepared to repeat what you ordered- no they don't give you a slip when you 1st order. Then take that slip and pay at the cashier by the front, after that come back to the area your lady is covering to leave her tip (10% is customary here). You can either give it to her directly or make sure she sees you put it into the wooden shoots that are located at the end of the square bar.

Arguably the South American In-N-Out of sandwiches. No chips or papas, but great sandwiches. I almost forgot why I stopped posting on trip advisor. I was just reminded, 100 word minimum.
