Nice atmosphere and great steak. Shared a huge bife de chorizo with a friend and could barely finish it as it was so big. Perfectly seasoned and cooked. Good selection of wine.

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 "churrasco a punto". Trust me, you... 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.
