Went there with a coupple of friends to celebrate a birthday. Its located in the old part of Ciudad Juarez. Its not a luxiorious place but the service was great. They start by serving you pork rinds (chicharron de cerdo) and just made beans and corn tortillas. I had a ribeye, was great.

Friendly service, fresh made tortillas, quiet environment, beans and chicharron as appetizers. It is a great option at any time of the day. High value for your money. Hint for thebusiness: please, install a sales point for cards.

Best arrachera and ribeye I've had in a long time. The home-made corn tortillas are delicious and the lady who makes them continuously visits your table so you always have hot tortillas. It truly is a museum of local bull-fighting, there even are bulls heads on the wall. It is a very small place, although it does have two floors... More

As soon as you walk through the door, you see a smiling lady cooking fresh tortillas. There were a couple of tables available when we arrived, so we were seated immediately. Delicious pinto beans, pork skins, salsa and pico were delivered to our table, and our order was taken quickly. For appetizers, we enjoyed fresh, chunky guacamole and chorizo cheese... More

I have been there a couple of times and ordered the rib eye and the chicken kabob. Both are very good. I do not hesitate in recommending either. The rib eye will definitely fill you up. Big steak. You can really taste the mesquite wood that they use to cook with. Also, there is a lady who is constantly cooking... More

The atmosphere is that of a long-standing restaurant. They have their own way of doing things and they know just how to do them. Whether it is the woman making tortillas up front, keeping the table with tortillas, or the guy behind the grill flaming the steaks, or the giant pieces of fried pig skin that start the meal, or...

This restaurant is a place rich in tradition on the mexican border. It is small and maybe little uncomfortable., On weekends must have to wait table for a few minutes., The specialty is the flank steak meat (Arrachera), maybe one of the best steaks in Ciudad Juárez. This restaurant is decorated with bullfighting theme, this is a tradition in Mexico,... More
