Best "Churrasco" in Salta.

This is the best spot in Salta for the best Churrasco in town. I usually visit this restaurant for their Churrasco, but they also have an amazing "matambre al roquefort" which is a pork meat cut with a blue cheese sauce. They also have pastas, milanesas, salads. However, the must in this place is... read more

When we need to go to a more traditional 'parrilla' for dinner in Salta, say with Argentine friends, we prefer Viejo Jack's. We are vegetarians and they have an excellent vegetable parrilla. It's a giant platter with a large variety of veggies (including sweet potatoes, squash, potatoes) straight off the grill. It stuffs the two of us. Usually the meat... More

We got the steak for two and vege platter - enough food for 4 people! They do their steak on the under done side so if you like it medium rare then ask for medium and so on.

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
