1410 N. Gessner
Several of our South American restaurants have Uruguayan dishes on their menus but so far as I know this is our only eatery identifying solely as Uruguayan. There is an image of the Uruguayan flag on the menu board.
On a second visit I stuck to the empanadas, going for a Leek and Cheese and a Shrimp.
There are 14 empanadas on the menu board including several breakfast options and 2 sweets - Dulce de Leche and Sweet Potato. There are also ten 'Meals' on another menu board, including the Choripan and a Chivito Burger and a Chivito Sandwich. That last one is considered the national dish of Uruguay and it's on the menu of several South American restaurants around town, usually occupying a prominent place on the menu. Gram's online menu describes theirs as flat iron steak, ham, bacon and cheese plus a fried egg. I'm pretty sure I saw one on one of my visits and it's a very good looking sandwich. The Chivito Burger substitutes a hamburger patty for the flat iron steak.
There are several tables on a covered porch on the south side of the little stand and a drive thru window on the opposite side. Despite the drive-thru, Gram's is not fast food - empanadas are cooked when ordered, not sitting under a heat lamp, and it takes about 10 minutes.
A couple of real winners and more to explore sums it up. Gram's Empanadas should definitely be on anybody's list for an Empanada Crawl.
