If you find yourself in Ciudad Juarez, hungry for a good steak or baked chicken, nobody beats this establishment. It's location is near downtown off Constitucion and 16 September. Parking is limited but worth walking a block. You will walk into a Bull Fighter themed restaurant and notice the woman making fresh corn tortillas alongside the cooking area. After being... More

Great old time decor, classic service and all the homemade tortillas you can eat. The ribeye was a steal but the t bone was so thin it could only be prepared well done. It might have been great if it had some weight to it. Lesson learned. Would I go again? You bet. The place is a charmer. Bring money!... More

The place is not fancy at all, actually it looks old, but this is my favorite steak place. Hand made tortillas, cold beer. This is definitely your place to go if you like hand-cut steak ;)

This is one of those places in Juarez you may want to invite a collegue once you know he is a meat lover. Best steaks and VERY reasonable prices. When you get tired of those fancy places that charge you for the "atmosphere" get here. It is usually crowded so get early for lunch. Tasty tender steak is all you... More

What a treat! Huge tasty rib eye steak that nearly covered the plate, with baked potato and guacamole. Two of the rib eye plates, guacamole, plus a beer each came to about $35. The decor is bullfight memorabilia, from the owner's long career in the business. The outside is inconspicuous, and gives no clue as to the inside. Not feeling... More

Like all have said - this place is a jewel - it offers great steaks, tacos, fresh tortillas, bull fighting decor and a welcoming staff. My family was made to feel at home and I cannot imagine a trip to Juarez without having a meal there.

First, let me tell you about the decor. The place is like a bullfighters museum, with photos, bullfighters uniforms and equiptment, and authentic bullfight posters adorning the walls and cielings. You could spend an hour just looking around. This place is small, so if you go at peak times you may have to wait. The steak tacos are awesome, as... More
