I love it here, the servers are amazing, so caring. The food is delish, it amazing how such a little place can have an amazing kitchen. You have to go and try all of their empanadas, the churasco is so good too and they have a GREAT selection of wines.....

One was medium rare and the other was well done...we informed the el paso Argentinian waiter he said, with a extremely rude tone, the steaks are cook exactly the same and that meat size made one medium and the other well done...I...

Horrible service! I went in with my family and girlfriend when I was visiting El Paso. My sister is vegetarian and asked for her meals to have the meat substituted or remove. The meal came in with meat. We informed the server but told him she would just move the meat aside. They had two big groups (my family being... More

This is a great restaurant for a date or a family dinner. The food is truly delicious -starting from their appetizers - and prices are reasonable. I do recommend making reservations for Friday/Saturday nights since they are a small place and always full! I have also catered parties with them and the service was fantastic!

Loved this place and we got there earlier so we didn't have to wait but it is small so either make a reservation, go early or be prepared to wait. Plenty of options to choose from but the steaks are excellent. Large portions!

This restaurant might not be something you might think twice about from the outside, but it is amazing. I would suggest making a reservation since it is very limited seating. The food was wonderful and so full of flavor. The prices are very reasonable and major plus. The dessert was so rich and flavorful that there was none left. The... More

Doesn't get much better than this... true Argentinian food, served by an Argentinian family - the actual owner is the one taking your order (Mr. Leandro, one of the most attentive and professional restauranteurs I've ever met)! If you combine such an excellent meat-grilling style like the Argentinian one with some of the best beef in the world (Texas/Chihuahua), you... More
