“Argentine oasis in Queens”
Reviewed November 6, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

During a recent stay in New York I visited this place. It combines a restaurant and an Argentine style deli. Empanadas were excellent and at a surprisingly reasonable price. On an earlier trip I had had dinner at the restaurant, quite good Argentine fare (parrilla and red wine). I am confident I will visit again.

“Absolutely El Gauchito”
Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

My family and I have been coming here for years and it has always been excellent.
It is nice to find a restaurant where not only do they serve excellent food but do so with a smile.
You have to try it too!

“Skirt steak was soooooooooooooo good!!!!”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

This place was so nice, we walked in, they greeted and sat us right away. The waiter was also very pleasant and easy to work with, thank U.

Price was reasonable and they are in no rush for you to leave once they closed for the evening.. they patiently waited until we were ready to go...

Skirt steak was YUM!!!! Will come back for sure!!! Thank U

“Great for the meat lovers”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We first started coming here years ago after one of our Argentinian friends was nice enough to bring us. She used to rave about how this place reminded her of her childhood. After tasting the food I can see why she loved the place. For the price you get so much. We usually always get the combo platter with skirt steak, sausage and short rib. It's cooked and seasoned perfectly. Definitely recommended if you are in the area.
