It is still good!

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 The decor is outdated but I consider it part of the place.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.

When in Monterrey and in the mood for a good cut of beef, you almost can't go wrong wherever you end up going. Though it's HARD to say this or that restaurant is the best, I CAN tell you this: "El Gaucho" @ Eugenio Garza Sada is one of your "top 3" choices in town. Want to give yourself a... More

Amazing salad, huge portions on everything! Try the Ladrillo and cabrerìa. Everything is very good. Very Familiar atmosphere, no reservations. Almost always full. Great service with waiters with more than 20 yrs working there. Share always!

You may have to order half of an order because the cuts are really big , Also ask for the Argentinian salad that comes with a lot of avocado and cheese

Big steaks to share and great salad with a lot of avocado. Meat empanadas are really good. The place is very clean, service is great. Seating is spacious. Share your dish with two or three, very big and pretty expensive.

One of the pioneer argentinian restaurants in Monterrey. My first visit to El Gaucho was in 1970 and my last was in Feb 2015. They keep high quality steaks and empanadas and service is excellent and friendly. Reservations...A Must!!!!
