The most tender steak I have had in my life! One order for two people is still too much food, but worth the full tummy.......average price $11 USD per person.....can't beat that!!

Just had the most DIVINE steak at El Viejo Jack. It was recommended to us by our hostel as the best place in town, and we were not disappointed. Complimentary salsa, bread and empanadas greeted us upon arrival, and our waiter was one of the most charming men we have ever had the pleasure of meeting in Argentina. Bife de chorizo was absolutely enormous, and cooked to a tender medium rare as we asked. Spanish is not essential to dine here, and we found that nothing was lost in translation. 150peso for two people stuffed us so full that we almost needed to be rolled home. I could not be more pleased.

We ate at both Viejo Jacks, and while the steaks are great at both, we prefer VJ2. It has a much nicer dining room with some covered open-air spots to the side. It’s newer, and with the first location already a success, the owners could invest in a better quality setting. Steaks are great at both, but VJ2 offers the better atmosphere.

And then another time after returning from a mini road trip in the area. Typically we don't make a habit of eating at the same place multiple times unless we feel like we won't get the same food again ever. The picana was the best stake my significant other and I have ever had (on the first night...last night was also delicious but not as life changing as the first time). We had one great super friendly and smiley waiter. Another one wasn't so happy. The salad is good with a nice mixture of veggies. The atmosphere is not the best, but don't go for the decoration. You are paying for MEAT, and it is good!
