I'll startby saying that the steaks were amazing, probably one of the best I ever had. Bug thumbs up! The reast of the food was good but not extraordinary. I wish they had better salsas.

We went there on Dec 26 and the place was packed. Long story short, the restaurant was not ready to serve so many people. Here are some lowlights:

- we were sitted on a table for 6 when we were a party of 8.
- we had to request the menus because they never ofered them to us.
- we had to actually walk to the server to remind him we had requested salt/pepper several times and he kept forgetting to bring it.
- tripitas de leche were delivered to our table when we finished our meal. The waitress came seceral time to the table giving excuses as of why they were late but failed to deliver them on time. We took them home and were delicious but again, that's not what we wanted. We wanted to have them at the restaurant as part of our meal.

Our recommendation for the owners would be to hire extra staff and review procedures for days when demand is high. Look at this as an investment to avoid compromising quality for quantity.

Altough the steaks were amazing unfortunately we were unable to have a good experience because the service was poor.

Great place to escape from the heat (temperature) of Hermosillo. But especially the mixed grill as suggested by the waiter was a real hit. Excellent meat (Hermosillo is famous for it's meat).

For Mexican standards I would not consider this a cheap restaurant. But it is well worth the money spend. Not to forget to mention the service. Excellent assist from the waiter. Very good approach to his clients. Top service for top food I would say!

Very good location , great atmosphere , the service was excellent , and the streaks were outstanding !!!! I base the quality of steaks at any other eatery to this place it is that good .

Highly recommend this place to anyone .

Everything was great about this restaurant. The food and people were fantastic. The appetizer was great. We had a thin cut tender steak on fajitas. The guacamole and salsa was really good. The main course was a platter of steaks, some of which could be cut with a fork. For dessert we had strawberries cooked with brandy over ice cream that was fantastic to finish off a great dinner. Some English was spoken by a few people which helped, but we were there with Spanish speaking folks as well so it made it much easier.

Try one of the Mixed Grills. Ours was delicious. Arrachera and Cabrería. Tender, cooked perfectly to order (rare) and served with a chile, potato, grilled three-color peppers and tortilla. Have guac and fire beans with chips, too. Great service, English menus available upon request, some English spoken.
