Not only is the food and atmosphere great, but the staff is very helpful and a very nice perk is you can bring your own bottle of wine and there is no corkage fee, the el filet is phenomenal but be warned it comes with 2 filets!! Great place, really enjoyed it

Great place for a date or w a group of friends. I have eaten here several times and never once had a bad meal. Very reasonably priced and great service. Steaks are very good, I love the ribeye (bife ancho) the el filet is amazing too (comes with two filets). The steak portions are big and I suggest sharing with... More

We chose Tango Sir because it was near the Mercury Theater and thought it would be a great place after seeing a show. We were right. The place is very cute inside and has a nice outdoor area too. We tried the empanada and they were terrific.the corn and cheese one was so good but they all were! Also a... More

We had dinner outside. The steaks were very good. The server was helpful. BYOB was great. We had Malbec with dinner. It was a very enjoyable evening.

I would have given this restaurant a lower score, but the food is excellent. The rating is based on my experience at this restaurant. It is a BYOB establishment and the clientele it attracts is a young, heavy drinking crowd. While waiting for our table in a cramped, dark room, I had to endure a party of 8, 20 something... More

Came for lunch on our last day in Chicago. The food was very good and the helpful service was excellent. It was a shame it wasn't dinner instead as we could have eaten more! We had one of the huge steaks and the aubergine (eggplant) bake. Really excellent.

My wife, two daughters, and my younger daughter’s boyfriend dined at Tango Sur on Saturday May 10th. Upon arrival around 9pm, we were told there would be a two hour wait for a table. We almost left for another restaurant but discovered they had a wine room that made the wait bearable. The restaurant is BYOB so with a bucket... More

Each dish was just outstanding, from the empanadas and cheese appetizer to the steak and spinach mashed potatoes, to our sampling of desserts. BYOB helped keep the cost to about $50 per person. Tango Sur is quite noisy, but still a great place for a date or dinner with friends. We arrived early on a Wednesday night and were seated... More

I visited Argentina two years ago and ever since then I have been looking for an Argentinean restaurant and this one was pretty awesome. The only downside is the super long wait (2 hrs) for a table. My party got there early (at 6) and there was already a waiting list. No reservations taken but you put your name on... More

Terrific, authentic, delicious Argentinian steak - with great service and a bustling atmosphere. Because they don't accept reservations, we like to get there as close to opening time (5PM) as possible and we're generally seated immediately. Also, because it is a BYOB restaurant, the prices are quite reasonable. Two thumbs up - highly recommended!
