Was able to sit outside at Tango Sur. Empanadas were awesome, as always. Had a little of their hot eggplant dish. Not normally one for such a dish, but it was quite tasty. And then the steaks (we had two different kinds) were excellent. We brought our own adult beverages as they allow and had a great meal. Service was... More

Tango Sur is an Argentine steakhouse with decent (but not outstanding) quality meat. Some of the cuts in our large group were more fatty than they should be. But the meat was well flavored and cooked as ordered. Empanadas were very good appetizers. Salad okay, not special. Flan for dessert was quite ordinary. The biggest problem was noise. Hard parallel... More

I 've been there twice with friends, so I had the chance to try different plates. Loved the empanadas (appetizer size assorted pies), eggplant appetizer, Fillet Mignon and Mixed Grill (the meat is so good)! The ambience is great and the music really makes you wanna get up and dance. The staff is very well trained, too. Our server Max... More

My friend and I were visiting Chicago from Boise, Idaho and shopping in the Water Tower Place. While checking out at one of the stores, the sales person asked where we were from and said that she was also from Idaho. I asked her for recommendations to get a good steak. She recommended Tango Sur, so we gave it a... More

Maybe I was feeling a little cheap. My husband wanted to go to one of the fancy Chicago steakhouses, i just didnt want to drop two hundred ++ on dinner. We were in the Wrigley field area and i trusted the reviews on trip advisor raving about this place. The service was terrific and the ambiance a little dark but... More

Went on a weeknight for a family dinner to Tango Sur. This neighborhood gem was recommended by family & friends. Was surprised there was no wait for a table, we had a choice of being seated inside or outside. We choose to be seated in the dining room. It's a BYOB restaraunt, so we brought wine with us. Excellent service-... More

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.
