Currency and dollars in Montevideo

Hi,

Is US dollars used anywhere, like tipping or is everything paid by local currency?

As I will travel to different countries in south america and dont want to have so much local cash if it cant be used anywhere else, will try using bank card and Uber as much as possible.

Thanks in advance

Most places, but not everywhere.
