Ordered filet mignon med rare and it was ok. Definitely nothing to write home about. It was almost like it was steamed or baked instead of grilled quickly, no outside browning at all. Appetizers were great. Nice outdoor seating area in newer area of Guadalajara.

The place is open and comfortable, with specialties in beef and argentinian delicacies, service is prompt.

They do have a very nice wine selection with options from Argentina, Mexico and US. Definitively a very nice place for a good steak in a nice atmosphere.

I go to Guadalajara for business every two weeks so I've been around the place, I've tried different restaurants but honestly I always have to go back to La Estancia Gaucha. The food is excellent, watch out with portion sizes though, they are big so it's ok to share. The service is friendly and efficient. My favorites are Vacio, Bife Chorizo, Churrasco and the Brocheta. The meat is very good, tender and with flavor. I normally ask the steak medium rare and brought to the table on a hot iron plate. That way it cooks up a bit more and doesn't get cold. The side salad is great too. I never make it to dessert but my colleagues swear they're very good.
They have a good wine list and being in Guadalajara I would suggest starting with a white tequila.

The best argentinian grill in guadalajara, churrasco steak is amazing, the potato fries are great, empanadas are good but really expensive, everything is expensive here, but worth it.

Honestly, the meat I ate at Estancia Gaucha was the best I´ve had so far outside Argentina. Very tender meat cooked to perfection (including typical Argentine starters such as mollejas and chinchullin), with excellent house sauces and salad; and an ample choice of wines. Service is also exemplary, the only minus goes to atmosphere - this is a very upscale place, at lunchtime there are almost exclusively businesspeople, so it lacks the spontaneity, laughter and charm of a typical parrilla. But besides that and being almost 5000 miles away from Buenos Aires, i guess it is as close as it could possibly get.
