Excellent service and good food.

The restaurant is very small and you need to get there early specially on the weekends, the owners are always around so the service is always quick, the hand made corn tortillas are a must. Good prices too, right down town on Juarez.

If you want a good steak and a local place with great ambiance, this is the steak house to go too. It is literally a museum of bullfighting. Chicharron as an botana. The staff is great !! Don't miss it!! Bring cash!! No credit cards accepted

This is an excellent restaurant. The best steaks in Juarez. Owners pay extra attention to service. I would recommend anyone visiting Juarez to make it abpoint to visit. Aside from the restaurant they also have the atmosphere of a bullfight museum, with impressive photos.

The place has a lot of bullfighting memorabilia, and the food is really good. The corn tortillas are made while you order your food, they right away serve pork rinds and beans along with chips and salsa. The only cons I saw was that if you seat on the top floor the service is slow, also they don't take credit... More

As a starter they bring you a small cup of beans and hand made tortillas.This place only excepts cash no debit or credit cards. Cost of my plate was 250 pesos which right now is... More

Meat was not fresh, served warm not hot. I asked to have the plate reheated and it was brought back the same way if not worse.

The beef tacos are very good. Also I love the chicharrones that they give you while you are waiting for your food to be served. Salsas are tasty. Just beware of the waiting times to be seated, the restaurant itself even though it is 2 stories high it is still very small on the inside, there are very few tables... More
