GOOD STEAK AND SERVICE AT A REMARKABLE PRICE

This is a two-link chain with an excellent large menu- I had Baby Goat (cabrito) one meal and a T- Bone steak for the second. Quick service, good food, and a fine mint flavored lemonade- made an excellent meal.

Went to this really good restaurant with 8 others and boy did we enjoy our dinner as we sat outside and watched the hustle and bustle of the city around us. Fried yucca with dipping sauces started our meal. Between t-bone steaks, grilled chicken and burgers with fries we all enjoyed our meal very much! The US dollar goes a... More

The best restaurant in Bucaramanga where you can taste our most delicious beef. The environment is homey, cozy and very typical. Don't forget to try the patacon soup!

This was a recommendation from my friend - I visited there with her family, and it was great! The steak was HUGE, nicely cooked just to my liking, with fries and a nice avocado salad. They also provided not one, but TWO really spicy sauces! (This is really hard to find in Colombia). And finally, their lemonade was divine -... More

This place is simply amazimg. I would never recommend recommend going to the ones in malls as they are franchises and are far from being as good as the actual restaurants. If you ever want great meat, this is the place to go.

Plain and simple - we ate there twice it was so good! Mercagan is more for meat lovers than it is vegetarians! Offering a bit of everything in the way of meat, I would say it is hard to beat their burgers. I may go as far as others have and say it is in fact one of the best... More

I loved the meat. Excellent flavor and texture. Side orders were nice too. Great service. Will go back. Only drawback is the name. I cant believe such a great treat is called that way!

This restaurant has a very nice backyard and it is well decorated. The menu offers almost all typical Colombian meat options and the food is always fresh and well prepared. I think this is the perfect place to try the goat grilled in the Colombian way and the special sun dried meats - good wine options too
