We had a birthday dinner here for a family member. The atmosphere is nice. The food is very good and I enjoy the salad bar. If you are wanting a certain meat brought to your table, they make sure to send them to you.

This restaurant is fun for a larger group or for a special occasion. It is worth the expense for a special treat. If you have a larger group, such as a high school debate team or work banquet, it is worth contacting them in advance...More

There are 3 levels to our Gaucho meal. The difference on the 3 levels is the selection of meats. Kids 6 to 12 years old the pricing will be $11.95, $14.95, and/or $16.95.
