Good food + fair price

One of the first places I visited when I arrived to Nuevo. I ordered vacio steak. First you select the steak you want, the amount, and then they cook it. Very good quality, good service, and you can bring your own wine.

My husband and I went to the counter and selected our steaks. We both ordered a nice size of vacio steak. We asked for the steaks to be cooked medium. They tend to undercook the beef so order accordingly. We also ordered sides-1 baked potato which we shared, one order of mushrooms, 2 orders of asparagus and 2 salads. When... More

This is an excellent little place. Nothing fancy and it is a simple concept. Order your meat they cook it and then order the side dish. I had the macaroni and cheese which was really good. I highly recommend it. The other people in my party had the baked potato. We shared two orders of asparagus. I had the vagio... More

Glad that we had locals with us who knew the system. Picked out our meat paid for it and the sides, brought in our own wine (no corkage fee!). Absolutely delicious ! And an extremely good value

You start by ordering the type of beef you want and how you want it cook. While you wait you get order of beans, tostadas and salsa of various styles. The concept is like having a carne asada at home. Great value if traveling with family.

The concept is cool. Order your meats at their meat counter (they sell by the kilos) they bar b q it for you. The key here is to grab an indoor seat where its air conditioned. Service is great! We had the Arrachera meat...Yummy!! Included in the price are the tortillas, beans, guacamole and sauces....

This restaurant was a real treat! We enjoyed our steaks. We ordered them medium well based upon other reviews here saying they under cook them and they were perfect. We shared a baked potato between the two of us and it was great. We brought our own wine. We enjoyed sitting in the AC dining room. I was glad that... More

When we arrived, we waited to be seated, nobody helped us so we sat ourselves. We waited for quite a while for a server, when he finally came to the table we asked for menus. All he saw was my only menu is on the wall. So we all stood up and walked over to read the menu, then sat... More

A friend of mine mentioned that The state of Sonora in Mexico is well known for excellent meat, and after learning that Sonora al Sur brings their meat from Sonora, I decided to give it a shot. I like the simple way that this restaurant operates, you pick your meat, weight, and the way you like your meat cooked. The... More

The vacio is the best cut of meet I have ever had! It is flavorful and tender. The onion was sweet and amazing, the mushrooms to die for. The flour and corn tortillas hot and tasty! The asparagus... Fresh and cooked just right. Bring your own bottle of wine!! For $30 American we fed a family of 4! We love... More
