This Argentinean steak house is still my favorite restaurant, I have been coming here about twice a month for close to ten years.

Its got amazing steak, its not expensive, and never a wait for a table. You come here for the steaks and meats, nothing else. Don't get the appetizers, dont get the wine, don't get the fish or pasta, they are all pretty average. The flank steak for two (21 dollars) feeds me and my three kids and is my favorite. The various grills and platters (sweetbreads, sausages, and various cuts of meat) are huge and equally as good as the flank steak.

The flank steak, a quilmes beer (pretty bad beer, but when in rome), and some chimichurri sauce is all I need to be happy.

This is not Peter Lugers, its much more of a simple cheap very amazing steak. Oh, and they take credit cards. They also are a butcher and sell meats.

Here is the cook, minding the grill. He seems to always be here.

Its at the corner of Corona Ave and Junction Blvd
