It is a nice place with good big portions and not expensive. Because it is on the road it has a good turn over .

We stopped by there because it was open at 4.30pm unlike many restaurants that close after lunch and open again for dinner at 8pm or later. Basic Uruguayan cuisine is served - chivitos, BBQ, sandwiches, pasta etc. Average prices and ok service. Floor was dirty...More

Heard a lot about this place. Went yesterday late noon with the family. The only burden to the rating was the waiting time: 40 minutes in a quick food place doesn't make a lot of sense! Quality was good and price too: paid 12 dollars...More

Is not right on Ruta 1 but 1km away. Some say one of best chivitos in Uruguay. Kind of like a highway restaurant with fast service. Pizzas are also ok. A bit pricey for what it is.
