“Authentic Argentine and Chilean food”
Reviewed June 7, 2012

Staff is Argentine and Chilean. Having been to and eaten in both countries this food is as close to Chilean as I've seen in North American.

“Great lunch - great breakfast!”
Reviewed May 18, 2012

Looking for a reasonable and delicious lucch or breakfast in the Galleria area? This is walking distance from most of the hotels, and there is no better sandwich around. Ham and cheese, steak sanwich, or add a fried egg to either and throw in some of their hot and perfectly salted hand-cut fries. Wonderful!

“Best empanadas in Houston!”
Reviewed February 24, 2012

If you fill homesick (I am Colombian...) or if your want to try something different, go to Cafe Argentina, a small place in the shoppping center located on the corner of Hidalgo and Sage. They make the best empanadas in Houston! I love the beef ones, they also make them with chicken, or spinach or cheese.....delicious! Good prices also for a nice lomito (beef tenderloin) and other argentinian selections. Excelent value for money...! Nice argentinian owners, the son runs the place. Take away is available.

“Great Place for Lunch”
Reviewed January 11, 2012

Located in a strip shopping center a few blocks south of the Galaria, the Argentina Cafe is a pleasant place to have a sandwich or drink, but the empanadas are excellent. They are baked, not fried as I like them. They are not overly spiced. They have a limited menu, but the food is prepared well. You order at the counter, and they bring the food to your table. They serve beer and wine as well. The prices are reasonable. There are tables inside and outside.
