“I seriously recommend this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

For the past 2 years i have been eating here every 3 or 4 weeks, we have had the best service, the best meat, everything is great, i cannot imagine my sundays without coming here.

the also have one of the best expresso's, they charge a lot for it ($63.00 pesos!!) but it is worth it!!


please be advised if you dont have a reservation you will have to wait for a while, but they have several different options to book a table in advance

“Fabulous in All Respects”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Their beef (I had Bife de Lomo, medium) was the best piece of meat I've had, anywhere, any time. Perfectly prepared and presented. Top quality, tender, juicy, hot, full of flavor. Definitely did not require any additional seasoning or sauce. I cried and toasted the chef, the buyer, and the animal that gave up his life for my enjoyment! Accompanying salad fresh with a delicious vinaigrette-honey house dressing. Music tastefully subdued. Waiter was a pro; friendly and there whenever needed but not lurking. Vino tinto just right. I only hope I am nearby when it's time for my last meal.
If you love meat, in a word ... OMG.

“Experience is observed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

Nice place, conservative and great for weekend family gathering. Good service, a little kids area with security gard watching, great meat dishes and the best ravioli in town.

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