Here you can enjoy all the best of Monterrey regional food. The best carne asada plates are Agujas Nortenas, Ribeye ribs and Arrachera. They have also Cabrito (baby goat) and the other plates that come from goat that are fritada (blood soup) machitos and goat head meet. They start with refried beans, chips and salsa. If you need some greens, every plate comes with complementary huge salad bar. There is a location in San Pedro also, smaller but exact same food and service.

This is one of the best options for Cabrito in Monterrey. You can choose, which part of the animal you prefer and order different varieties. Apart from that there is huge variety of different meat dishes, a salad bar and other platters. However, once in Monterrey you gotta taste the famous local speciality Cabrito.
The service of the aged but corteous team of camareros is excellent and does not leave any wish unfulfilled.
The great food is accompanied by a choice of national and international beverages including sodas, juices, beer, wine and licors.
The price level is definately a little elevated, but one day or another it is worth a visit and a definate must when travelling to Monterrey.
Enjoy your meal..

Ate there after it was recommended by locals. We had to sample the Cabrito. The service was great. Salad bar was nothing to write home about. Order the marinated cheaper Cabrito. It was better than the roasted. The waiter recommended the leg rather than the breast we wanted, saying the breast was dry. Hot sauce was fiery. Bean appetizer was awesome. Drinks were OK but not great.
Drinks and meal with tip for 6 was 2000 pesos.

I have tried the Gran San Carlos a couple of times for some of my family members, as for myself and my vegetarian friends this is a NO GO place. BUT it seems to be just right for my goat loving friends. They really seem to like to quality of the goat, all non goat items just seem to be side dishes, salad bar sucks (unless you like iceberg lettuce). I will keep taking those who like Cabrito, but for me it’s not an option. I must say the staff is very attentive and always prepared to handle any sort of requests. Great staff, looks like good goat, but no veggie options.
