“Steak like no other in the area.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Is up to par with some of the better steakhouses, service was good, waitress was attentive to our needs. Was so full we didn't do desert, but they seemed to have a great variety.

“Stake heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

If you are a beef lover then then a visit to El Tenedor is worth the trip. We go there at least once a year and have never been diapointed in the service or meal

“great dinner choice”

We were a group of six and had reservations...thank goodness. Best churasco ever! The mofongo de yuca was delicious. The atmosphere was terrific...coqui song echoing throughout from the gardens. Great wait staff

“Just another restaurant.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

El Tenedor is just a restaurant. The House specialty is supposed to be the skirt stake, it is OK no more than that. Pricy ordinary food.

“Birthday Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012 via mobile

Our visit was on a Monday, which resulted in no parking problems and quick service. There are a few parking spaces in front of the restaurant and the rest are on street. I can understand why others complained about the parking if they visited during a bussier time. The churrasco (skirt steak) was excellent. The sangria was a bit weak for my taste, but acceptable. Again, our experience was very good, but our visit was on a very non-busy day.
