“Great food & Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

This was a great experience, the whole set up is just nice and most of the area is open with big windows. My friends and I we were welcomed by Cesar (waiter) who was very attentive all the time with great recomendations from the appetizers (A delicious provoletta and Argentinian Chorizos).

Everything was great, they don't have enough desserts options, but they have great options for dinner. Thank you cesar for your "Premium Service" This guy knows about the "Extra Mile" philosphy.

“Good meat restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

Reading the reviews, we decided to try La Vaca, is located in the most trendy shopping mall in Guadalajara so try to make a reservation in advance. We were seated right away, table size is on the small size (we were four and was far from comfortable), portions are big and meat is great. Service was attentive but had to called their attention several times even thou our table was in a corner and they were 5 waiters just across our table talking to each other. The music is too loud (80's sings) we were there late afternoon and could hardly hear each other, it was more a bar like feeling. I don't consider this a friendly children's place. Price is convenient considering prices of other meat restaurants in Mexico.

“Best Steaks in Guadalajara”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

La Vaca Argentina is the best place to get a steak. It was tender, juicy and full of flavor. One word of caution, the steaks are HUGE, I ordered the Beef Lomo and it was a large enough portion for about three people. I recommend ordering the 300gr. There was a nice selection of wines, but be careful, the waittress offered us another wine that cost twice the amount and told us it was an American wine and it was from Mexico. I do know there are some great wines from the Baja region that are excellent but we were on budget and wanted the $40 wine and she offered us a $86 wine, big difference. Nice atmosphere in a trendy part of the city. Across the street was a PF Changs and high end brand stores like Natuzzi. Get the Valet parking its only $5 and a lot less hassle to park.

“Good food for Mexican standards”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

This is one of my favorites steak houses in Guadalajara. The place is clean and the food is good. They do seem to struggle getting the steak done the way you want it. I like my steaks pink/medium cooked. This is how I asked it and it came out well done. But with a good bottle of wine we were able to get it all down. So make sure to ask for a 'undercooked' steak. Or still bleeding if you prefer your steaks red.

“Best steak house in Guadalajara”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013 via mobile

We have tried out a lot of restaurants , la vaca Argentina is the for us the best steakhouse in towns. Extremely fresh meat, made to order, great entrees and great deserts.
It's hard to recommend something, because everything tastes great, but the cut vacio is delicious. Take a carachillo , cold espresso with licor 43, at the end, you will live it.
