Style: Best Chivitos in Town

, Punta del Este , Uruguay
Area: La Barra

Price: $15-25 per person
Rex Diner in La Barra is a trendy eatery and takeway that is known for having the best Chivitos (sandwiches Uruguay -style) in town. What’s great is it is open all hours of the day for whoever has a hankering for tasty snacks, great desserts, and thirst quenching refreshments. The diner has plenty of outdoor seating in the front patio but the terrace in the back has better views overlooking the ocean.
The pleasantly decorated air-conditioned indoor dining area with a bar provides ample seating in warmer months as well. The most recommended menu item is the national chivito sandwich made from very thinly sliced 5 types of proteins - Churrasco beef, pancetta, ham, fillet mignon, and fried egg with melted provalone cheese, lettuce, olives, and drizzled with a special mayonnaise sauce and a side of fries. Other notable choices include refreshing salads, burgers, waffles, fried calamari, and paillard de pollo (chicken paillard). Their licuados (fruit smoothies), milkshakes, and desserts are also best sellers.
Remember to bring cash when you visit Rex Diner that is open 24 hours a day. Cash only
