WOW this place was amazing. We ordered the meal for 2: came with a verity of meat: ribs, steak, chicken, pork, along with roasted potatoes and a HUGE salad. They gave you so many different home made dipping sauces! SO much food and such great quality. I ate so much! A MUST if you are pacing through.

I ordered a hamburger and my friend ordered the goat cheese pizza. Unfortunately I wasn't a fan of either. Maybe we should have gone for the steak. The hamburger meat did not have any flavor, tasted more like turkey than beef. The pizza crust also was lacking flavor and was so crunchy I felt like I was eating a cracker,... More

Just came back from there and I must say that was one awesome meal. We had house special for 2 with selection of grilled meats of all kinds. That in itself was great but we also got massive bowl of salad and the platter full of extras/dips. All in all a very satisfying culinary experience topped up with swift and... More

Located right on the main road so it was great to watch the night life / car traffic. The shakes (with mint) are fantastic. We ordered a couple of hamburgers and it was not fully cooked. I know some people like it this way but we not as much. We let the servers know and they quickly replaced the meal... More

On a warm day in town we decided to stop by for some empanadas and some wood grilled pizza, salad etc. The food was sooo good as were our cocktails. It was our last day in Santa Teresa and we were sad we couldn't come back for dinner - but there is always next time.

I usually try not to write reviews unless I've been to a place numerous times. Now, on my fifth visit to this BBQ joint, I feel its time. First, the good news. The grilled meats are fantastic. Baby-back ribs and chicken breast were amazing. Love the salsas they bring with bread, service wasn't bad although the waitresses do seem like... More
