A touch of Argentina in Arlington

I've been here a few times. Its nice to have a good steak in town that isn't a chain. The meat cuts are very tasty, the empanadas are authentic and the atmosphere nice. It can get a bit noisy in there on a weekend night. I highly recommend it over your typical chain, but the prices are a few... read more

.. But no more. One bad experience has had a lingering effect on my interest in the restaurant. My wife and I took her son, a restaurant manager and cook, for an anniversary dinner. The place was understaffed (a Monday holiday that they weren't prepared for) and the service as disappointing at the steaks. Since there are other options nearby,... More

I would love to love Tango. The guys who own it are soooo nice and gracious. We cannot live without a freezer supply of their delicous and very authentic Argentinean Beef Empanadas (not the other varieties.) But it is a very limited and repetetive menu of varying proteins on a plate of "Meat, potatoes, Green Beans and Carrrots" and Chimichurri,... More

We sat at the bar, server was pleasant and got our drinks in a timely fashion. We had dinner at the bar and was pretty disappointed as my and my husbands meat was quite dry, overlooked and not much seasoning. Atmosphere was ok, but we were so disappointed with our meals we won't be going back as there are so... More

Bianca was one of the best servers we have ever had. The appetizers large and excellent The 12 ounce Sirloin was bigger than either of us could finish. The flan was enough for 2. Really Yummy. This is a real gem. Argentina has the best beef and this proves it.

Went with my wife and I for bit before a show. The atmosphere is great - lots of energy, a nice vibe. I had the grilled chop and my wife had the flank steak. Both were prepared well and a generous portion, but the sides were tiny. The mixed greens was about four forkfulls.

Great dinner. Nice atmosphere. Sangria was delicious. Bacon wrapped dates melted in my mouth! All of our entrées were so good too!

We were a party of 6 and I twice had to send my dirty martini back (no olive juice in the dirty martini). I ordered filet mignon with "no pink" and it was returned medium rare and about 2/3's pink. I returned the filet mignon as well. I gave up on the martini and ordered a margarita. A friend in... More

I had one of the best steak dinners here in my life. Lovely romantic atmosphere, sat at bar and still cozy. Good drinks and excellent food.

I love Tango, but I can rarely eat there. They open at 5pm and even if you show up at 5pm if you order steak it takes almost an hour to get your food. I don't mind the wait since the meat is cooked per your order and it really is one of the best ones around but if you... More
