Best Mexican Steak House in Jalisco and Nayarit

I love a good steak. We looked for years to find a restaurant that serves up big steaks, fabulous baked potatoes, the crispest and freshest salad and all for a reasonable price in PV or Neuevo Vallarta We found it 4 years ago, keep going back and have told all our friends. You arrive and go back... read more

We ate here last night and enjoyed the experience. However it was so noisy and chaotic that we were unable to converse with the people at our table. I would recommend eating here if you are craving beef at a very reasonable price.

A fun unique place to visit, not expensive and the mushrooms were great! The pinto beans and water that they served as a starter was a bit odd, perhaps a cultural thing that I'm not familiar with?

Pick your own cut of steak, tell them how to cook it, pick your sides and when you get your check, you'll think they forgot to add it up correctly. What a great value for some great steak and food

This was the most amazing steakhouse Ive been to. You go to the back and select the type of meat and size you want, they cut it in front of you then take it away to cook on the outdoor grill. Then its served with a side that you've chosen - they're baked potatoes were amazing. The steaks were so... More

We visited Sonora al Sur for the first time this evening. Our waiter was excellent, and very attentive. You stop at the butcher counter and order your cut of meat, then at the cashier, you order sides, such as a baked potato, vegetable, salad. We shared orders of asparagus and baked potato, which was enough for two. Wine or other... More

Went here last March (and will go back in a few weeks too!) Great spot on BLVD Nuevo Vallarta. You can pick your cut of meat and they will cut it in front of you to your specifications, then have it BBQ'd to your liking as well. Can't remember the sides we had but I do know they were delish!... More

We went as a family and the guys bought and ordered the meal. Firstly, we bought way too much at the butcher shop.and again overbought at the potato etc. counter. The steaks were not cooked to our order and had to go back for re-cooking and nothing wrecks a steak like trying to re-cook it. Summary, extremely overpriced, mediocre product.

Good for the money. Large portions easily shared. Not so much on the atmosphere side. Liked it better when it was open air.
