Food is very expensive in Montevideo. In general, to eat in a restaurant will cost you as much or more than a good restaurant in the US. So Empanadas Carolina is a bargain. All empanadas are 51 Uruguayan pesos--about $2US each. And there are vegetarian...More

These girls pump out delicious empanadas like a well oiled machine! Not greasy, and not skimping on the fillings. Great find, must try! 51 pesos per empanadas, can of beer will set you back 60. Nice quick fix!

Seriously, I'm not screwing around these things are pure evil. Deep fried to perfection like the Colombian variety, but not at all greasy. I've tried all kinds of variations throughout South America and these are hands down the best! The Dulce de Leche one is...More

Just bar seating, so pretty much a fast food place. But empanadas are good and inexpensive, and the Mercado Del Puerto is very atmospheric.
