This is not your salad and chicken breast place. These guys provide you with manly portions of steak, chicken and sausages. The flavors are really good and the value is awesome when going in groups. Be ready to wait in line if you don't get there early enough.

This place is entertaining, they have few things outdoors to keep you from getting desperate while waiting to be called in a few HOURS. It has a beautiful view and a river that runs right next to it... but that's all the good I can say.

Yes they do serve a ridiculously large amount of food in each plate served over an ocean of french fries (with one order you can feed an entire family of 4 or 5) but the quality of the food is just cheap as you would expect it would be for offering so much food in a single plate. The taste of the meat is less appealing than the ones found at any fast food and the "steak" is just minute steaks in large portions.... just have a beer or mojito and you'll be set... it's just fun for kids

I went with my family (like 7 kids) and at the beginning paying in the sorroundings was nice, but the wait was so long, and the food (although plenty) was so average that it was not worth the wait of >3hr.
