Great beef, prepared excellently. Plus this restaurant has one of the best salads in town - very simple but just delicious. They are pretty aggressive pushing the bottle of wine on the table but other than that the service is excellent.

Our team met here for dinner and it was worth the walk from our hotel. The garden salad was fresh and the steak platter was enough for all 4 of us. I would definitely recommend Churrasco Centroamericano to friends. The entrance to the restaurant is below the street level. You may have to ask the parking attendant for directions.

This is by far the best steak I have ever tasted. The city I'm from prides itself in red meat but comes up short when compared to this restaurant's steak. The flavor is absolutely delicious and the meat is incredibly soft and tender. In addition, the salad featured as the restaurant's photo pic is simple, but again it is packed... More

This is a restaurant I have known for over 40 years! and probably one of Guatemala's best kept secrets... The reason I keep going there is CONSISTENCY! The place is small and not-so-fancy, with a limited menu (sirloin, tenderloin, salad, and 1/2 salad); but the quality of what they serve es PREMIUM, consistently premium! Always the same good quality meat,... More

If you are in it for the great tender steak with minimal distractions- limited menu side order choices- at a very reasonable price then Churrasco Centroamericano is a solid option. It's been a long time since I've had such a tender succulent steak. And the price is hard to beat too.

If you enjoy a fine and juicy steak and a relaxing atmosphere to have a meal this is the place to go. The steak is of the best quality around and is freshly cut everyday by the owner himself. The restaurant even has the motto that if the meat isn't good enough, the restaurant will remain closed. The staff is... More

Outstanding dinning experience. The ambiance is lovely with a beautiful patio overlooking the Avenida. Even if you sit inside you get a great view of people going by. The food was amazing. The menu is simply limited to two types of steak, salad, appetizers and dessert. If steak is what you are in the mood for this place is a... More

The puyazo is excellent. The house salad is huge and fresh. The desserts are really good too. Try the lemon pie. Service is friendly and helpful. The prices are really reasonable. My first time here but I will return soon.

Simple menu, 2 beef cuts + salad and toasted garlic bread, but you won't need more. Ask for Huehuetenango coffee in a french press to finish your meal. Just amazing.

Great steak. The thing that i liked the most is that they serve you no side dishes. You want a piece of good strak , thats what you get, pretty straightforward. The puyaso had an amazing flavor, the right amount of medium raw, and as soft and juicy as it gets. The waiters were really nice and attentive and overall... More
