Best parrillada in town

Located in 37th Ave & 84st in Jackson Heights you will find one of the best "parrilladas" in town. Good service and menu. It's pricy but you will not regret it.

For instance- a Uruguayan steak house! The meat was great, the prices reasonable, and the service friendly. Try the ceviche as well as the parillada. Really good for groups, it is noisy so maybe not great for a first date.

El Chivito de Oro is an institution for the Latin American community and for the ones fortunate enough to visit this place. Every dish is great but the meat in particular is EXCELLENT. I visited many times and it is great to be here! I would suggest reserving a table. Fav dishes: split vacio, potato salad, and sangria.

Although the service is not awesome and thats the reason I took one star off the food is amazing! Tried something different in each visit and my fave is the entraña which I order often for delivery. Not all the servers are bad but the tallest blondie who I think is from Uruguay is super rude and nasty... she was... More

Very good, reasonably priced, fun, noisy place. It is a wonderful destination for carnivores. Friendly, neighborhood place. I recommend the gigantic mixed grill.

Talk about stick-to-your-ribs yummy goodness! Have been here about three times with a friend who lives in the neighborhood. The place is always jumping with diners and it's clear why: The food is dynamite and the service is good. It's a bit pricey but no more so than any other restaurant in NYC. Well worth a visit.

This was my first visit to the place, on a busy Saturday evening a few weeks ago. First positive thing i noticed was, it was PACKED. We had to wait about 10 minutes for a table. Lots of families and groups were here. I had a pasta and seafood dish, and my date had seafood as well. The portions were... More

Get the Mixed Grilled Platter to try their deliciousness. Frankly, I haven't ordered anything else here other than the mixed parillada which comes with your choice of sides. It's a big platter that could serve three. Service is good and it has the ambiance of an HR Block but I still go here for a nice filling meal.

I was unpleasantly surprised by El Chivito D'Oro which I thought was going to be delicious. a friend said she and her family had a great meal there. I can tell you that I was so, so disappointed. There is a line outside this restaurant, people wait for a long time for table. Why? I have no idea. Our server... More
