My family went to this small Elmhurst Argentine restaurant based on Tripadvisor reviews, and we were not disappointed. All the details were handled well, including the bread, the water bottle brought to the table, the fruit juices, and most importantly the main courses. Three of the four in our party got something other than meat entrees (2 chose shrimp, 1... More

Gauchito is a solid parillada experience for what you can get in the NYC area. In particular, they put a lot of care into the meat: where it comes from (grass-fed Nebraska cows!), and how it's cut (Argentine-style, not Yankee style, which are surprisingly different). This is a funny place, more than just a typical Argentine steakhouse. For starters, if... More

The food here was so delicious and reasonably priced. The meat and empanadas are worth trying. The highlight if our visit was the friendly staff. Parking is a little difficult as you have to park on the street.

I love the place. I was expecting it to be expensive but the food are really priced reasonably. I was actually surprise. I love the steak. I not really fond of meat but I sure did finish everything on my plate, of course excluding the bones for one. Would surely eat here again when I come visit New York again.

If you want to know how is the Argentinian steak, you SHOULD VISIT AND HAVE A STEAK at this restaurant, ask for the "Bife de Chorizo" (NY Steak) or the "Entrana" (skirt steak) or "Vacio"....all of them "medium rare", is almost a metaphysical experience. Meat lovers go there, is closer than Buenos Aires but with the same happy results. Enjoy!!!.

If you are looking for authentic Argentinian fare at very reasonable prices, you must visit this Restaurant with a truly family atmosphere and friendly service. Don't go there on Wednesdays, it is closed.

During a recent stay in New York I visited this place. It combines a restaurant and an Argentine style deli. Empanadas were excellent and at a surprisingly reasonable price. On an earlier trip I had had dinner at the restaurant, quite good Argentine fare (parrilla and red wine). I am confident I will visit again.

My family and I have been coming here for years and it has always been excellent. It is nice to find a restaurant where not only do they serve excellent food but do so with a smile. You have to try it too!

This place was so nice, we walked in, they greeted and sat us right away. The waiter was also very pleasant and easy to work with, thank U. Price was reasonable and they are in no rush for you to leave once they closed for the evening.. they patiently waited until we were ready to go... Skirt steak was YUM!!!!... More
