“Meatlover Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

I have to say that I am a meat lover,and my favorite place toexperience the delight of a cut of beef is La Vaca Argentina restaurant on Tomas V. Gomez. This is the origin for this well-known and appreciate franchise in Guadalajara. The cut I favor most is Vacio, which is an amazingly tender and delicious cut of beef akin to a bottom sirloin cut. I have accompanied the same with either a bottle of red wine (there is bound to be a red that wil satisfy the most demanding palate because their selection is quite ample), or a cool glass of dark beer. Either way I have always savored the the flavor of the meat as it almost melts in my mouth, and have been left pondering the next return trip. The cut is accompanied with salad, which is nice but does not merit much when contrasted for the reason to come to this restaurant: the cuts of beef. I heartily recommend you visit this place if you are in town, and enjoy a good steak (or cut as the locals are wont to say). Cheers!

“Great grill, generous servings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

Great grill, amazing seaks and beef cuts, but also great grilled fish. Very generous portions, so consider sharing a main dish.

“Tasty portobello”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

I loved the place, specially the portobello and smashed potato.
Limonade, however, was not that great.
A bit expensive, but still nice.

“Very good, great wine list!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

I have eaten here twice - 2011 and 2012. Great service, great steaks. The wine list is amazing for Mexico. Empanadas are great. I always get steak and a good bottle of wine. Great service. This last time the waiter spent 20 minutes tracking down the bottle of wine we wanted and while we were waiting brought of 4-5 other selections. We ended getting the bottle we wanted. It seems like I am obsessing about the wine, but trust me it is really hard to find good wine in Mexico. Then I was being picky about how the steak was cooked because Mexicans in the US and Mexico like to cook steak all the way thru ( there is a reason carne asada is so thin), so the head chef came out and we came to an undstanding. My steak was perfect!

Ambiance is not too trendy, but very upscale Mexican. A great place to dine.
