Hole in a. Wall restaurant in lake view. Although the steaks were not served in the traditional Parilla , the place was able to capture the flavor of Argentina . Steak was priced right with good quality cut. The steak was cooked in such a way that the quality of the meat shined through .

This place is always busy, so if you don't have a reservation, expect to wait at least a half hour. Inside the atmosphere is very vibrant, and the food, albeit a lot of food, is excellent. It's bring your own beer.

This cozy steak house is unassuming and doesn't get a lot of publicity - and as a former local, that's why we liked it so much. Tango Sur is the steak house for Chicagoans. Gibsons, Chicago Chop House, etc. get a lot of publicity and tourists, who are willing to shell out $50-100 per plate easily to dine at those... More

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

Staying in Wrigleyville

Neighborhood Profile
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.
