Great meal

Visited this place a few years ago, but I still remember it as a great meal. It was definitely very busy. Bone in ribeye, spinach mashed potatoes, chimichurri. Yes, it was all pretty tasty.

This place has argentinian type food. The service was a bit slow, but our server was very good. Unfortunately, my chicken was dried out, but my husbands rib eye was very good. The place was dark and very loud. We had to scream to have a conversation. We won't be going back.

Argentinean food. Brought our own wine--no corking fee.We arrived 6:00 PM on a Saturday and too late for outdoor seat. Inside seating is nice, but a little loud. Waiter recommendation was fillet mignon which was excellent, but could have ordered just one for two of us as was two ~5 ounce fillets.

Took my daughter for a dinner after we purchased her first car. The amount of food that comes to you can't be stressed enough. We started with the empanada and the beef tongue appetizers. There must have been over a pound of thinly sliced tongue with a vinegar dressing. The empanadas were yummy too. She had the chicken (half a... More

The food here is amazing. The service is pretty great too. I love the BYOB factor too. The only thing which did not work out well was the wait! It could take over an hour on weekends to get a table. In the past, they would let you go to a waiting room in the back and get your drink... More

Be prepared to wait for a table, but it will be worth it! My boyfriend requested a steak dinner for his birthday so my sister recommended Tango Sur. Unfortunately, we only had a party of 4 and they do not take reservations unless you have a party of 6 or more. We went early on Friday night and put out... More

The food is great and we enjoy the BYOB aspect. It can be a bit of a wait on Friday and Saturday evening, but it is definitely worth it!

the food is fantastic, flavorful and filling. The no fee BYOB is hands carefree and welcoming. We went early on a weekday and had no problems getting an outside table on a rare but beautiful evening. Great place to sit, have a drink, people watch and enjoy a great meal.

Slightly concerned about some reviews, but went early(7.15) on a Monday evening, plenty of room although it did fill up pretty soon...Service and attention were excellent could not have been more attentive- had filet steak and sirloin, both were tasty and cooked as we wanted - highly recommended! BYOB was a bonus

First off, this is my wife's and my favorite date location in Chicago. You go and expect an experience, it is the perfect cross between fancy/romantic and divey. The wait may be over 2 hours, but you go there expecting that. We go put our name down, and hand out at toon's down the street for a couple hours. It... More

Staying in Wrigleyville

Neighborhood Profile
Wrigleyville
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.
