“Steak at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

Recommendation to try this roadside eatery was right on !!! A bit of not knowing what to do when getting into the place was immediately put to rest as the staff asked if it was our first time and then promptly showed us what to do. Choosing your steak from the butcher very easy, different steaks, rib, new york, sirloin, porter house. Then you have a choice of sides .. papas, onions, salad all good .. we shared the sides after picking our steaks.. more than enough for a couple of elderly eaters. Wine list extensive but they seem to be out of a couple this night ..all in all very good for the price and the steaks were outstanding. Staff very pleasant and helpful. You can bring your own wine if you remember.

“Should be Numero Uno in Nuevo Vallarta!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

OMG! There's a reason this place always has a crowd. You choose the size of steak you want from your cut of beef selection, select your sides, and it's cooked to perfection! And all this for a price so low it's hard to believe! Easy to find: Look for it across the road from the entrance to the Technological University.

“Great local place, not much atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

If your Spanish is limited, it might be intimidating the first time you order. But, great steaks, great beans, good service. Hand made torillas, better than most. Possible downside is lack of mixed drinks. Enjoyed my t-bone; husband had a filet. Skip the papas.

“Best Steak Ever!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Not much "atmosphere" but great steaks The sides are unmatched anywhere! A local restaurant that has expanded due to tourism. Partly my fault due to my many recommendations. Now have wine and beer available unlike previous years but you can still bring your own wine if you prefer.

“Steak!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Delicious steak. Very different ordering and paying system. The waiters out front are super friendly and helpful, but the ladies in the butcher shop where you get your meat have very little English and are not helpful. The beans are fabulous. I would go back. No mixed drinks are available.
