Nowadays it´s very difficult to find a real restaurant in the Valley that it´s not run by a chain (Chilli´s, Shoney´s,etc). I unexpectedly found this nice little Argentine restaurant in Brownsville that has excellent steaks and a good atmosphere! a must if you´re trying to avoid all the fast food joints...

The Bife de Lomo (filet mignon) is always thick and excellent. Priced in the low $30 range, it's pricey for Brownsville, but cheap for a comprable steak in any big city restaurant. The halibut was also great! During lunch, I had the steak sandwich for $15. The meat was thin, but the sandwich was pretty good, overall.

Waiter would not accept restaurant.com gift certificate, even though I had purchased it a little more than two months ago. He showed me a piece of paper that said they stopped accepting the coupons as of May 4, 2011, and when I pointed out that I purchased the coupon on May 31, 2011, he said his date was first SO HE WINS. What kind of customer service is that??? I took a group of five colleagues for lunch specifically because I had the certificate and the experience turned into a nightmare. The waiter refused to contact the manager or owner to try to resolve the issue. When I asked him if I could just return at 4:00 today, after the manager got it in, the waiter said sure, then followed me out to the parking lot with the busboy and they both wrote down my license plate number. I am appalled at how rudely we were treated, and how little consideration there was for customer service. And quite frankly, the food is not particularly good - the chicken was dry and overcooked - though one co-worker said the empanadas were excellent and another really liked the grilled onions and peppers. After I go back this afternoon to speak with the manager, I will not return. Ever.
