“Delicious.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2012

Went here for my birthday and they gave us a great evening. Live band inside, great steak. They only serve beef, so if joyous are looking for chicken, pork etc - this place will not suit your needs. We loved the service and again, they made us feel very welcome. As a funny surprise, they brought a tequila shooter and as I struggled to keep in my mouth, the server protected my friends across the table and quickly jumped in with a napkin and held over my mouth. Kinda funny.

“Great place for steak!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 29, 2012

My wife and I visited this restaurant with another couple. We found the atmosphere and staff terrific. They provided us with an nice starter soup and the traditional chips and salsa. We sat on the ground floor, not being aware of an upper dining area until we were settled in. We believe we would have preferred the upper level. We would like to have been offered this option. We had a vegetarian in our group and this restaurant would not be the best choice for her. Our taxi driver had recommended it and we did not know the menu was almost 100% beef. She ended up with an excellent meal salad and all of us left well fed. Recommended for all the beef lovers out there!

“Good if you are craving a steak”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2012

Better to eat upstairs - so that you are not right on the street level dealing with dust. Five us went and had very good steaks - the filet was one of the biggest I have ever had and it was very good. The sides are traditional mexican sides. The servers were super nice and tried very hard to make sure we had a good meal. The atmosphere was lacking - being on the main drag and very casual.

“Love the beef!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2012

If you like steak, this is the place. Very good fajitas. Great salsas and accompaniments. Excellent service. Sit high up on the second deck above the main street.

“MELT IN YOUR MOUTH STEAKS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2012

Try the small rib-eye. Although they give you a steak knife a butter knife or fork will do and now you get a baked potato with your steak. The new Elvaquero up near Wal-Mart is the better of the 2 venus. Food great at both however.
