You like steaks than this is the place. You select cuts and they havae lots of them, then you pay and send them off to the grill. Very tasty garnishments of Guacamole and Beans. A different place with a great taste !

Interesting but good place for dinner. You walk the back of the restaurant and pick out your steak, and from there head to the cashier to pay for it. They then cook your steak and bring it out to your table. You then pay your servers separately for drinks, chips, beans, and sides once the meal is over. A little... More

From the outside you would not venture in! Do not let this put you off, the steaks are sensational, without doubt the best steaks anywhere is NV/PV. You choose your cut of meat, the amount you want, then they cook it as you like it, simple ! Went with my wife and 2 grown up children, had starters, massive steaks,... More

What a fantastic break for the repetitive nature of staying at a resort. IMO if you're going out for dinner, this is a place to do it for sure!

A local steakhouse, so don't expect prime ribs and fancy decor. That said - the service was solid, it was air conditioned (a big plus for a local place), and it's EXCELLENT value for the price. You can bring your own wine and there's no fee for corkage, they'll pack up your leftovers (and there will be leftovers!), and call... More

We were told this was a great place for steaks...chose your own meat , etc. We were also told it was cheap. Well it is cheap...but the steaks were not so good. I did have a wonderful salad and our friend got the mushrooms and they were wonderful. You can take in your own bottle of wine ( which you... More

Maybe this was just a not so great evening... We went with a group to give the steakhouse a try.. Its a different concept... All beef with your choice of sides. The steaks came out.. I think half of then were sent back because they were raw. After they were brought back, they were fine. Kind of awkward. The atmosphere... More

How can you explain Sonora, it does not look like much, area i think older, building kind of a shack but food "WOW". My sons were so impressed that they went there Sun and Wed. Steaks are chosen by you and you choose how thick, what kind and how you want it cooked,. The steaks ordered were the VACIO, RIB,... More
