We went early since we know the place gets very busy at night. The place is cozy, nice decor. The waiters are Argentinian which is really nice!. We brought our own wine. The portions are really big, so, we decided to split them, one for two people. Then we were told that they will split them for a fee of... More

The food at this restaurant was excellent, but it is a meat-eaters heaven. The empanadas are excellent! My daugher and I shared the Lomo Relleno with chimichurri sauce. It was incredible! This was enough for 3-4 people so we had a lot of leftovers which heated up well the next day for another meal for two people. This is a... More

It isn't exactly Argentina, but in the City of broad Shoulders it's my favorite joint if I do have to eat steak. Prices a bit high, but not compared to the other steakhouses in this area. Busy for a reason; the bifes there are pretty divine.

Was able to sit outside at Tango Sur. Empanadas were awesome, as always. Had a little of their hot eggplant dish. Not normally one for such a dish, but it was quite tasty. And then the steaks (we had two different kinds) were excellent. We brought our own adult beverages as they allow and had a great meal. Service was... More

Tango Sur is an Argentine steakhouse with decent (but not outstanding) quality meat. Some of the cuts in our large group were more fatty than they should be. But the meat was well flavored and cooked as ordered. Empanadas were very good appetizers. Salad okay, not special. Flan for dessert was quite ordinary. The biggest problem was noise. Hard parallel... More

I 've been there twice with friends, so I had the chance to try different plates. Loved the empanadas (appetizer size assorted pies), eggplant appetizer, Fillet Mignon and Mixed Grill (the meat is so good)! The ambience is great and the music really makes you wanna get up and dance. The staff is very well trained, too. Our server Max... More

Neighbourhood Profile
This energetic sub-neighborhood, part of the larger Lakeview neighborhood, has a split personality. In the daytime you can stroll along its streets and enjoy a quiet meal, shop for gifts, walk along the row homes or sit peacefully in Graceland Cemetery. After dark, the neighborhood springs to life. Go bar-hopping along Addison and Sheffield Avenue or join the crowd at the historic Wrigley Field for live music. If there’s a Chicago Cubs baseball game in town, be prepared. Cubs fans can get a little rowdy and may prove to be a bit overwhelming if you're not expecting it.
