We liked this place a lot on one visit, on the second not so good. The service is good, the staff really friendly and it's in a nice spot. Hopefully the quality of food will stay at the level of our 1st visit rather than our 2nd

Although we had a good meal it didn't blow us away this time. We've been going here for the past five years and I won't say the food was as good. First our waitress could not speak english which we managed to work around. We had the special for two which include two types of steak and vegatables. The flank... More

My family of five (all adults) had an amazing time here. We had five different courses of meat- Which is on the menu for two people but they said they would make ti for the five of us. Since it was a "non-traditional" menu item she quoted a price for us too. The meat melted against the knife like butter.... More

My wife & i went to eat there late one night. The guacamole was very good. My wife ordered a filet medium rare with a mushroom sauce. The filet was cooked perfectly & it was very tender & delicious. I ordered a sirloin steak medium rare. I felt it was slightly undercooked & was a bit tough. I asked for... More

The menu is very limited and the portions are small---and there was not a taco to be seen! Their specialities are steak and "Milianese" style cutlets with various toppings. We had just had filets the night before, so we choose the Milianese chicken with arugula. The chicken was pounded so thinly that it was complely void of taste and the... More

1,000 places to get a Taco, don;t pay the extra for the food when you can go next door and get a better meal at 1/2 the price. It isn't a disaster but if it is a Taco you want, try a Taco stand

First, the name is misleading. You would expect Mexican food, tacos, etc. This is NOT a Mexican restaurant, it is Argentinian. There isn't a taco on the menu. That aside, this is a nice clean restaurant with pleasant personnel. Perhaps we just didn't know what their specialty is, but obviously they should just leave some items off the menu. The... More
