If you want a great steak and meal and drinks at a great price, in a lovely open air restaurant with friendly staff and very enjoyable live music in the background, then this is the place to come.
The owner Joe is there most nights and makes sure everyone is having a great time.
The steaks are cooked to perfection. Everything we ordered was wonderful.
Will absolutely be putting this great restaurant at the top of our must return to list for Puerto Vallarta/Bruceries area. Thoroughly recommended!

Thanks for your comments. We added the cowboy steak to our menu. This is a juicy bone in rib eye steak. We are selling a lot of these. We are adding a vegetarian dish for those of you who do not eat meat.

Totally satisfied with the quality of the food, courteous staff, atmosphere, entertainment, etc.
Also, if you don't feel like having a steak there are other excellent options on the menu. Highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely be back again!!

The moment I walked into this restaurant I was overwhelmed with the reception by the owner and the hostess. We were seated promptly and made very comfortable. Our waiter Chris was exceptional in taking our order. We started off with margaritas on the rocks which were made to perfection by the hostess. We proceeded to order a nice bottle of Chardonnay, as the price was very reasonable. We were almost tempted to have a second bottle, lol. The whole experience of being greeted and served was second to none and the main course of Kebobs was so tender, they melted in our mouths. Desert was also very well presented and tasted absolutely fantastic. If you really like Flan, this is the restaurant to try it, as well as the most delicious blueberry cheesecake. Overall it was one of the most enjoyable evenings we have experienced in a long time. I highly recommend this restaurant, especially if you love various dishes of steaks, rib eye, rib steak, beef kebobs etc. etc.

I am glad that you liked the kebobs. They come in arrachera or shrimp and soon we will add chicken kebobs as well. You can mix them and have one shrimp and one arrachera on the same order. The combination of grilled onions, sweet yellow and red papers combined with mushrooms makes it a favorite here. We add the saladto make it a complete meal.

Look no further! This is the restaurant to be in when you want to experience true professionalism. The owner greets all his guests at the door giving you the feeling of being the most important customer. We have not heard any negative remarks. The food is second to none, as all meats are fresh-cut and prepared immediately. The presentation of the meals at your table are an absolute delight and it enhances your taste sensors to the utmost. The entire eating experience is something to behold, from the welcome of the owner and hostess to your table, the excellent waiter Chris, the lovely drinks and the best food preparation by their chef. Definitely an eating experience that can't be missed.
