It did come out a bit on the rare side, so Jesus quickly took it back to the kitchen. Next time out was pure perfection!!! When in Playa and raving great meat, Fonda... More

This place is the BEEF CAPITAL of Mexico! They've got meat dishes that won't quit. The preparation style is very tasty, and even if you haven't been to Argentina, check it out, you won't be disappointed.

For a change from Mexican food, my family decided to check out Fonda Argentina based on decent reviews. The steak and sides were delicious. I ordered the 800 gram Ribeye steak, which for my americano friends translates to 28 ounces, which is massive! Served simply on a wood cutting board, it reminded me of how meat is done in Argentina,... More

We stopped for a good steak and got a VERY good steak! I love lots of beef,but the large hanger steak was enough for two with some left over. Wonderful food at a very fair price. Location is not great but the food and the friendly service make a stop well Worth the stop.
