We ordered their “classic” steak (essentially a skier steak, but cut thicker than you usually see). It was just fabulous. Really tender and tasty. The recommended topping is Chimmichurri sauce, but I’m not a big fan. I asked for their creamy jalapeño sauce, which typically...More

Very nice atmosphere, live music, great service but the problem this time was the food.. churrasco came out over cooked and no flavor. They did replace the cut but it still had no taste.. very nice service though

Established since 1994, this is the best location of all the “El Novillo” restaurants. I particularly recommend the fried cheese, the beef taquitos and the churrasco. Don t forget the rice with red beans!!! And for dessert tres leches plus is a must

I went on my first date with my wife 26 years ago and the food and service was excellent. I went there several months ago and found a roach in the French onion soup. Disgusting! I though I would give them another chance as accidents...More

The place smelled moldy and the floors were greasy. Our churroasco was very veiny and the refried beans were very salty. The service was great though

This place has been here since the 80's. It's setting is like a patio. Specially is churrasco. Very good marinated. Prices range from $18-$30. Mojito was $8.99. The mariquitas (fried plantain) were not crispy. They need to fix that. The 3 leches plus had a...More

For the last 25 years, our latin American restaurant has specialized in serving authentic Nicaraguan and Central American style cuisine to the area. Our house special and most popular dish, the churrasco which is a tenderloin meat filet, is accompanied with our favorite chimichurri sauce, gallo pinto and sweet plantains. We don't stop there, we also have chicken and seafood available. If you're looking to satisfy your sweet tooth, our tres leches dessert is a crowd favorite. Soaked in three different kinds of milks and topped with marsh mellow like heavy cream, it is sure to put a nice cap to a wonderful meal. We've continued to be a great family place to dine with live music on weekend. If you're looking to host a special event with a small or large group we can accommodate you. We can easily hold 80+ people at our restaurant. Come see us today, we look forward to having you as our guest. Bienvenidos!
