The meat is good. The service is slowly killing the business. Well located, free convenient parking, good house wine, nice environment and cleanliness. The waiter, didn't say her name, but on bill shows Gabriela, has an attitude more appropriate for a Police station. Other staff members were nice and friendly but the wait for the food was excessive. Waiter did... More

I had lunch here with my family in January. The food was delicious and everything was very well prepared and presented. The service left a lot to be desired. The place is also very loud and difficult to have conversations.

They will even add donations in your bill (without your consent) and... More

Not surprised by the bad reviews. Gabriela very rude lady. She doesn't know how to communicate with people at all. Food was good, but hospitality it's terrible. You don't feel welcome in this place and it was sad to see people get up and leave because of this lady.

We arrived at las vacas gordas and there was a very rude lady (in her 40´s or 50´s) who did not welcome us when we came in. We seated ourselves and when we were ready to order my husband told her we were ready, she looked at us and she turned her eyes back to her cell phone. So we... More

Greeted as we walked by a very gracious hostess, the best was yet to come. The chorizo was the lead off followed by the grande churns i with papas frites provencale proved to be an incredible taste sensation....
