Steaks. Are. Amazing. Here. Full stop. Yes, it's on a quiet side street but don't let that keep you away. Yes, they serve beer from a teacup but it's a chilled teacup! All these little things make that place unique, make it stand out. Like the way they serve you four different freshly-made salsas with nachos while you wait for your food.
We also ordered the special to share because we weren't hungry and we just wanted a bite to eat. It was fine like that although on a normal day I'd be able to devour the whole plate alone, I'm sure. But you can always go for their 1kg steak! I bet that's huge!
If you like your meat, this is the place to go to!

Had a chance to visit this restaurant for dinner on both nights. The beef served here as the best I had so far. Small cozy restaurant and good BBQ steak. Highly recommended if you are near.

We went to el asadero after having read the reviews on TA. We were not disappointed! We had the 1/2 kg angus and the "el asadero specialty". Both were delicious. The meat is of very good quality and the portions abundant and everything for a very reasonable price!

We just enjoyed a great meal at El Asedero. The special is excellent, tender tasty beef. Our kids enjoyed the tacos. We were 7 and had pre dinner drinks, main course and a bottle of red with the food for under 1500 pesos.

My girlfriend & I just had dinner at El Asadero and it was really enjoyable. Based on an earlier review we ordered one "special" (bbq'd steak, chorizo, cactus, pepper & onion, with avocado & tortillas) for the two of us, it wasn't quite as large a plate as we'd expected based on the earlier review, but it was enough for the two of us, and it tasted fantastic!
Another positive was that they served wine by the glass and that the white wine was actually served chilled. (This may not sound like anything special, but based on 3 weeks' experience in Mexico; trust me, it is!)
Highly recommended!
