Steak was very tender. Loved the chimichurri & tomato/onion dipping sauces that came with it. Lots of sides are included - you will not leave hungry. Service was very professional and right there when you need it. Very nice ambience, and I was quite comfortable eating solo. Great location with lots of parking.

The ambiance is great, staff is attentive, food is plentiful in size and flavor. It needs a little spark to connect with patrons, but you will not be disappointed.

The churasco steaks are great the rice and plantains are delicious and you can ask for as little or as much rice when they come by, a small salad salad comes with dinner as well as garlic bread!!! It's a bit pricy but overall it was pretty good!!

El Novillo hosted a large party of us on a business trip in late July. The mojitos were flowing and they were strong! The table also had a handful of appetizers. The sampler platter was the most popular. Many of us had churrasco steak for dinner. The creamy jalapeño sauce is not to be missed! The rice and plantain chips... More

Went here with a party of 4 for a business lunch. Much of the food was enjoyable, and the portion size was good. The Churrasco was well seasoned and cooked to my requested doneness. The salad dressing was good, and the gallo pinto was well seasoned. The plantain chips were under seasoned, but the chimichurri sauce worked well to put... More

Description
For the last 25 years, our Latin American restaurant has specialized in serving authentic Nicaraguan and Central American style cuisine to the area. Our house special and most popular dish, the churrasco which is a tenderloin meat filet, is accompanied with our favorite chimichurri sauce, gallo pinto and sweet plantains. We don't stop there, we also have chicken and seafood available. If you're looking to satisfy your sweet tooth, our tres leches dessert is a crowd favorite. Soaked in three different kinds of milks and topped with marsh mellow like heavy cream, it is sure to put a nice cap to a wonderful meal. We've continued to be a great family place to dine with live music on weekend. If you're looking to host a special event with a small or large group we can accommodate you. We can easily hold 80+ people at our restaurant. Come see us today, we look forward to having you as our guest. Bienvenidos!
