Do not be fooled by the nondescript strip center. This place has some great meat and empanadas. The meat was flavored perfectly and the chimichuri was excellent and not too overpowering. We will definitely be coming back.

This place is absolutely wonderful! Everything they serve to they way they lovingly greet you at the front door! For a year I worked right next to this place and never thought it was open. I switched jobs and now all of our suppliers bring us here. And when its the day for Saldivia's, we are all super excited! You... More

We have had dinner here about once every two months for the past couple of years. The meals are great, with good ingredients that are well prepared. On Saturdays they have a guitar player and vocalist that make a lively atmosphere. The only negative is that the restaurant is in a strip center hidden behind another block of shops, and... More

My husband and I were in town for the Texans game, and we wanted to find a nice meal that wouldn't break the bank. Success!!!!! Great steaks, empanadas and chimmichurri to die for. Topped of with dulce de leche flan for dessert. An amazing meal, that rivals most churrascurrias and steak houses, all for understanding $60, including drinks. We will... More

I visited based on the other Tripadvisor reviews, and was not disappointed! I ordered the empaña, which was their signature steak. It was cooked perfectly; very tender and had a ton of flavor. I really enjoyed it. It came with roasted squash, carrots, potatoes, and yellow rice. They also put bread out on the table and there was a delicious... More

Absolutely delicious! Worth the drive from downtown. Skirt steak cooked to perfection and service rocks. Good luck with the move.

The location, buried in a dying strip mall is a bit of a turn off and makes this place hard to find but the good news is that they are moving in a couple of months to a much better location nearby. The warm bread and chimi churri sauce is great and loaded with flavor. The empanadas are very good... More

As I have traveled many places in the world, I went with the reviews on trip advisor as I have done before and made an excellent choice. The restaurant is misleading from the outside but the steaks/wine and prices are great. They caught me off guard.

Just a little strange that we arrived at 8:00 PM on a Thursday evening and we were the only people in the place. The waiter explained that since school had just started back, business was slow. The place is a little stark and there is not much ambience. That is the only thing that I can ding them on. The... More

This father/son-owned establishment closely mirrors the excellent dining experiences I had in Argentina. For starters, the lentil soup -- thick with bits of sausage and vegetables -- was among the best I have ever eaten. The flavors were so marvelously melded that it tasted like it had been slow-cooked for many hours. The oh-so-tender skirt steak, topped with an authentic... More
