Ok, so the food here may not be 5* standard but if you are hungry and on a budget this is definitely your 5* destination. Huge plates of well cooked hearty Chilean fast food at very very budget friendly prices. You could quiet easily order one dish between at least 2 people if not more!! I order the 1/4 chicken...

Everything about this place tells you that you are NOT in the U.S.; you are in Chile. We headed upstairs. No tourists, except us, in sight. Several couples, two families, us (I guess we were one of the couples). We chose a table off to one side to capture the scene more easily. A waiter brought us menus within seconds,... More

Fast food with huge portions- chilean style, some of sandwiches is impossible to eat in one, fresh ingredients, you can sit down and eat or take away your food.

If you are looking for a quality quick meal this is the place. The food is very reasonably priced as well. Serving up a variety of quick meals at very reasonable prices. The best chilean fast food in viña.

I give it 5 stars, but obviously only compared to other fast food restaurants. The portions are very generous, the prices are good, and the food is tasty and consistent. Just remember that it is indeed fast food, so don't go expecting a pretty dining experience.

Would definitely suggest splitting itr. Including two beers, the... More
