What a treat! Huge tasty rib eye steak that nearly covered the plate, with baked potato and guacamole. Two of the rib eye plates, guacamole, plus a beer each came to about $35.
The decor is bullfight memorabilia, from the owner's long career in the business. The outside is inconspicuous, and gives no clue as to the inside.
Not feeling especially adventurous, I skipped the specialty (bull's testicles).
It's worth going out of your way to find this hidden treasure.

Like all have said - this place is a jewel - it offers great steaks, tacos, fresh tortillas, bull fighting decor and a welcoming staff. My family was made to feel at home and I cannot imagine a trip to Juarez without having a meal there.

First, let me tell you about the decor. The place is like a bullfighters museum, with photos, bullfighters uniforms and equiptment, and authentic bullfight posters adorning the walls and cielings. You could spend an hour just looking around. This place is small, so if you go at peak times you may have to wait. The steak tacos are awesome, as is the ribeye served with all the goodies. The tortillas are made fresh and served hot off the grill. They really use good meat for everything here, and the staff is awesome, but they dont speak english. No big deal, you can always point to what you want on the menu.
