Family favorite!

We love to eat here even though there's many new restaurants that cook excellent steaks, but this restaurant is a classic, love the service, love the "guacha" salad and also the price is great given the size of the portions in each order. It's great to visit with friends and family.

If you are a meat lover and you want to try on of the best meat in Mexico, do not lose the opportunity to visit El Gaucho. Try el ladrillo - best kept secreat, the house salad, or the tradinonal arrachera or T-bone. The service is great. Good parking place. Great restaurant to do some business or have a family... More

Not only Monterrey is recognised for their good steak, this restaurant serves one of the best steaks in all the city! Plus, an excellent Argentinian typical food like its empanadas or its salad. Visiting El Gaucho guarantees having an excellent meal! The restaurant was created by a famous Argentinian soccer player that came to play to Monterrey. The name El... More

This place is very traditional, "argentinean" style beef. For me, it has the best salad. The meat is good. The decor is outdated but I consider it part of the place. There are many options now in Monterrey, but if you are in the area, this is a very good place.

We went here for a business dinner with a large group (about 30 people). They served us family style and were very efficient. The quality of the food was superb. The salad was one of my favorites. It was simple but delicious (lettuce, olive oil, avocado!, olives, tomato and cheese). We had two different types of steak and both were... More

Favorite restaurant in Monterrey by far. Great salads and empanadas. Steaks are just as great. A must go to place if you love beef. Service and drinks are outstanding.
