Wow!

My friend and I both agreed that hands down it was the best steak we'd ever had. 2 absolutely huge filet steaks cooked to perfection! Only thing stopping me giving 5 stars was the moody waiter serving us.

We were warmly greeted for lunch by a lovely man who also farewelled us with such kindness and professionalism. We both commented how great he was and that more wait staff should be like him!! I wonder if he was the owner? (He wore a white bow tie). We ordered tira de asado (for two) with papas fritas and three... More

If you go to Salta, you have to go to Jack's. Gorgeous meats and veggies all cooked beautifully. Nothing mangled or processed here! Simple, rustic and delicious. Excellent value. You will not be disappointed!

Quality food and large portions for really good price. Not the typical touristy spot, but a lot of local people.

We loved this place!! The steaks were fat, juicy and cooked to perfection. Between two of us we ordered steak, 1L beer, 500ml wine, empanadas and potatoes and were given bread and dips and it cost $23 all up. The service was great and the waiter was friendly, attentive and patient with our broken Spanish. Would love to go back... More

Came along with a cpl mates and enjoyed amazing steak for a reasonable price. Service was attentive and friendly. Didn't have many wines available from the wine list. I was there for big, juicy, tasty steak and I wasn't disappointed! We are here several times in our stay in salta

This is a very basic restaurant but out steak was perfectly cooked as we requested.   Service was also good and our waitress spoke good English.   The fries weren't amazing but the good value red wine more than made up for it.

If you are in Salta and feel that you need to still your thirst for steak yet another time, this is your place. We were two and shared a very decent piece of meat with a solid salad and basic fries. To be honest: the waiter somehow struggled with cutting the piece of meat, and we did not get the... More

The "bife de chorizo" was big enough for two gto share and was well cooked and very tasty. Likewise the papas fritas and salad were good. Reasonably priced beer and wine. Service: very good. I would definitely visit again.
