“Incredible Meat”
Reviewed August 31, 2014

Wife and I split the arrachera special and it was some of the best beef I have ever had. Moist, tender, and full of flavor. The chorizo was excellent as well, as were the veggies which were plentiful too. Even though we split the dish we still had enough left over for another meal. Chips with four dips at the beginning of the meal were awesome too. Most highly recommended!

“Great Place for Meat”
Reviewed August 27, 2014

This is a semi-fancy place for very expertly grilled meat dishes, especially. The ambiance is thick, and feels like a lodge. The front of the restaurant is open, without a front wall, with the grilling cooks visible to all. The meat dishes are tender and flavorful. Wine choices are good. We had prompt service despite being seated at around 7:30pm, the beginning of the dinner rush.

“Very good meat in a super friendly and welcoming environment ”
Reviewed August 26, 2014 via mobile

We spent a very nice dinner here, with main protagonist meat, very well cooked on the grill - you can find the most known cuts such as rib eye, sirloin or t-non steak plus the local specialty, arrachera that could be served with chorizo and other sides.
The staff gives you advice on what they believe is the best cooking for the cut you choose, and is also there to explain you how each cut differs from one another.
As soon as you arrive they bring you tortilla chips with fours different dips and chips keep coming until the end of the dinner!
We also enjoyed a postre, an eggnog pie that was unexpectedly nice!
The staff is really warm and welcoming, they always smile and check if everything is going fine for you.
And, we sat inside the restaurant and were captured by the two guys grilling the meat - as well as by the smell!!!
