Chuckle & Chew February 2016

Our group of 10, Chuckle and Chew, visit a restaurant in Chicago new to us all and then each member tells a joke that, hopefully, is also new to us all. This time Mary P selected Tango Sur on Southport. As the menu is on line, and as there are many reviews already here and on Yelp that raise... read more

Looking for a good dining option close to the Mercury Theater, we gave Tango Sur a try. The steaks were huge and tasty and very reasonable priced. The service was excellent and we left with enough left over for a second meal at home. Alcohol is BYOB, so bring your paper bag if you wish to imbibe. Also, medium rare... More

First time visit. Most of us had their signature El Filet or bone-in ribeye. Both very good. Slight edge to the filet (two small filets per plate could be shared). The seafood salad too fishy for my taste, and some pickled pieces. Excellent service. Birthday flan very good. Outstanding value.

The food, the ambiance, the service, and the staff are simply the best. My wife and I have dined at the finest "traditional steak houses" in Chicago and they simply cannot compare to the Tango Sur experience!! My wife and I

Tango Sur is the place we always go for steak and empanadas when we are in Chicago. Is an argentine restaurant. Is a byob,place, which make this place even more attractive. Last time we had the "bife angosto with chimichurrii, which is a delicious garlic and herbs sauce. The price has gone up a bit, but is still good for... More

Every special occasion I come here. Every birthday, anniversary, or even a craving suffices enough reason to come. I say special occasion because it is pricey but SO worth it. Plus, I've never finished a meal here because the portions are very generous and so filling.. so you have lunch for tomorrow too! It's definitely worth the price. You will... More

We love dining here but have decided to never go on a weekend again. delicious meals, to be sure. But we've waited for tables and had the seater ignore us and seat others before us. Wait staff is so-so, bus boys have been awesome. No issues on weekday visits, so we'll stick to those!

we had dinner here the other night and it was just great. We ordered the dinner for two and that was enough for 3 people. The atmosphere was very cool and hip, the staff were great. Our waiter was from Argentina. We also had the baked cheese and pepper appetizer, another good choice. I can't wait to go again.

I eat here every time I go to Chicago. The steaks are fantastic, the food is super authentic. It is BYOB so bring some malbec wine or beer to go with your food. And save room for dessert too.

This is the third or fourth time I've eaten here. Great ambiance, and the service was great, too. We started off with the empanadas, and I highly recommend them. They are a great way to stat off your meal. We followed it up with a couple of their steaks to share among the table. Very very tasty, well prepared, and... More

Neighborhood Profile
This energetic sub-neighborhood, part of the larger Lakeview neighborhood, has a split personality. In the daytime you can stroll along its streets and enjoy a quiet meal, shop for gifts, walk along the row homes or sit peacefully in Graceland Cemetery. After dark, the neighborhood springs to life. Go bar-hopping along Addison and Sheffield Avenue or join the crowd at the historic Wrigley Field for live music. If there’s a Chicago Cubs baseball game in town, be prepared. Cubs fans can get a little rowdy and may prove to be a bit overwhelming if you're not expecting it.
