We had a late lunch, early dinner at the Insurgentes branch of this Argentinian style temple of roasted meat. The meats are either grilled over charcoal. Some cuts are slow cooked for hours. The meat quality is excellent. Unlike the norm here in Mexico, they...More

Very nice and private Argentinian steak house. Service and ambience are quite good as well as food quality. It ain't chip but not as expensive as Loma Linda. I would definitely go back.

This is a good place for bifes and lomito. The staff is always willing to help. But, be ready with the cost. It's quite expensive.

I have been there several times on business and with my family, simply because it is too close. Pricey and not value added. And retrieve an invoice from them is complicated. You have to call and call again . I will not be going back.

Cambalache may not be on this week´s hot new list but wow was it amazing. I take it they have been in business for decades and it shows. Impeccable service. Truly - has to be a long-sustained service culture. Every team member really knows what...More
