“Cheap quality eats”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014

If you find yourself in San Telmo and are sick of bife de chorizo you must stop by here for a quick meal. We tried the cordero fried empandas and pita sandwich and were blown away. The tastiest Mediterranean food we had in BA.

“Amazing tacos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

Great food! I highly recommend the tacos and the falafel. I need to go back to try more. Limited seating. Just some stools and of course a red bench. Great Spanish beer too.

“Tasty and fresh 'fast' food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2013 via mobile

The red bench is a really nice 'fast' food place! Tried the chicken kebab. Made with love for the food, tastes and the craft.
It may be called fast food but they dont rush preparing your tasty meal. Also the fried potatoes finished it up very nicely.
Just a very simple fresh tasty night meal. Ill be back!

“Wow.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

The sandwich choices they have are off the chain amazing. I got a sandwich in a pita, that would usually result in a gooey-pita-y mess, but the bread maintained its integrity with grace and was absolutely delicious. There was no lack of flavor.

Super fun joint. Mainly a take-away place so dont expect to see too much seating.
