First visit here and it was beyond expectations. Always a little leery when going to a BYOB restaurant, but no concerns at all here. The food was fantastic!! I had the veal chop that was cooked to perfection. Everyone in our party raved about their meals. We had brought wine and beer with us and the wait staff opened our... More

Excellent parrillada meat, great service, good music, nice place. Average price for this kind of restaurant. Little bit crowded but the dessert (flan with dulce de leche) pays it off. If you like argentinean food you won't be disappointed.

We met our daughter for dinner at 7:00--she arrived early because they do not accept reservations. We were promptly seated and my daughter decided to leave and go buy a bottle of wine down the street because Tango is a BYOB establishment with no corkage fee. In her absence, I ordered a few empanadas for appetizers and was quite pleased.... More

We stopped in for dinner prior to a concert at Wrigley. The food was delicious. It is a very fun atmosphere without being so loud that you can't talk. Service was very friendly. It is BYOB for alcohol, but there is a wine store in the same block. Dinner for our family of four (teenagers, not little ones, was very... More

Delicious Argentinian food. Huge portions. My husband had the lamb and I had the filet mignon. Both delicious! The Spinach mash was excellent and unique. The service was great. You bring your own wine and they pour for you.

Very good food, the meat was awesome and the service was excellent. Me and my friends totally loved the dinner. If you go there make sure to bring your own wine because the don't serve alcohol. The positive thing about it is that don't get overcharged for alcohol as normal restaurants do and you get to bring your favorite wine... More

Is BYOB so bring your favorite wine and have the best dinner for a fraction of what you would othewise pay. The portions are generous and the price is very fair. I highly recommend the Lomo!

Tango Sur was one of the best surprises we found in our neighborhood! Great value, delicious, flavorful steak. We were told to get there around 5 since they don't take reservations and it definitely filled up fast! Highly recommend the cheese appetizer and the filet.

Very casual setting. Usually doesn't take reservations so make sure you're there early. The place is BYOB so make sure to bring your favorite Malbec or cabernet with you. This is actual Argentinean meat: not only do they have your usual ribeye (which rocks) but also some tastier entrees. My recommendation: If you are 2-3 people, skip the appetizers (they... More

Argentinian restaurant featuring steak. The steak was ok, but less than expected.. but the empanadas ( appetizer )are to die for. Next time I'm skipping the entree and ordering a number of empanadas, beef,chicken, ham and cheese, spinach, and a special shout out to the corn. They are fried or baked. Very friendly service.

Staying in Wrigleyville

Neighborhood Profile
Wrigleyville
This energetic sub-neighborhood, part of the larger Lakeview neighborhood, has a split personality. In the daytime you can stroll along its streets and enjoy a quiet meal, shop for gifts, walk along the row homes or sit peacefully in Graceland Cemetery. After dark, the neighborhood springs to life. Go bar-hopping along Addison and Sheffield Avenue or join the crowd at the historic Wrigley Field for live music. If there’s a Chicago Cubs baseball game in town, be prepared. Cubs fans can get a little rowdy and may prove to be a bit overwhelming if you're not expecting it.
