“Great -hole in the wall-”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014

This is one of those places in Juarez you may want to invite a collegue once you know he is a meat lover. Best steaks and VERY reasonable prices. When you get tired of those fancy places that charge you for the "atmosphere" get here. It is usually crowded so get early for lunch. Tasty tender steak is all you can expect.

“Great Steak!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

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.

“The Real Deal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

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.
