We have had 4 days eating seafood and fish and wanted to have a steak meal, we were sent to this place and it was nothing fancy but great food, the Cabreria is superb and to my surprise we found a nice bottle of Emilio Moro Malleoulus.

Everything is good!! There is not a luxury place but you can eat the best meat in town. The CABRERIA is so GOOD!! You start with a fresh salad, guacamole with totopos, or a grilled cheese with tortillas. Your meat plate include a bowl of delicious beans.

This restaurant is one of the best in Culiacan for carne asada. They serve you as an entree a pico de gallo with another hot sauce with chips. You do not have a lot of options, but the ones that you have are great. Great location too.

Good beef. Convenient location on the south riverwalk. Try arrachera (grilled beef flank) with the coldest beer possible. Fast service and reasonable prices.

Local busines freinds brought us here and we really enjoyed it. Started with the ample seafood sampler, chervice and wide variety of good beverages. Then shared A LOT of great cold and cooked seafoods to which we often added a variety of chile sauces. Finished with hot pepper candies.

Best steakhouse in Culiacan. Get the Cabreria and go to the place in 3 Rios which is the new place!
