Sabores del Plata gets three stars from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's John Kessler. Vegetarians be warned: this restaurant serves up meaty fare from Uruguay and Argentina, like the Hamburguesa del Plata, which Kessler says can contend with any of the more famous burgers in the city, and the entraña, which he thinks might very well be the best $10 steak in the area. If patrons aren't full from the empanadas, the massive sandwiches served on house-baked bread, or the "conglomerate of yum," as Kessler calls the lasagna, there are layer cakes galore and strong espresso to help finish the meal.
