I own a restaurant and Joselito's is the best I have found in Guatemala. a soup, beans, guacamole and chorizo platter are included in the price of your meal. The steaks are better than Ruth Chris steak house in the U.S. and about 1/4 of the cost. Hint - order caramelized onions served on top....I highly recommend Donde Joselito;s I... More

4 of us ate here for about $43 USD and it was more food than we could possibly want and we ordered two different types of steak and 4 mixed drinks. We ordered their most expensive steak which was suggested and it was a boneless rib. We also ordered a lower priced steak and the lower priced steak was much... More

Holy cow. Really. You get half of a cow for less that US$20. Amazing how this place can do this. You might be thinking lots of crappy food at a low price. BUT NO! The meat was so tasty, the service amazing, the dishes that come with the meat are ok, not great but, as an advice don't eat them.... More

This place was busy when we arrived (it is huge!) but quieted down over the course of our leisurely early dinner. After some help from our server, who was very patient and courteous with our broken Spanish, we ordered the (supposedly) smallest portion of their recommended steak - which was still huge! This was absolutely one of if not the... More

Had dinner with a couple that live in Guatemala City and this is their place to go for a steak dinner. They usually go on a weekly basis and lots of the wait staff and bar staff know them by name. We split a steak dinner for 4 people with 2 different steak types. They were all fantastic. The sides... More

I recommend the "Costilla" which is beef rib aand vacio " which is flank. Both are high cut meats. You can order it 1/2lbs or 1lbs. It's an awesome piece of steak that comes with sautéed onions and either smash, French fries or fresh salad. Sick of thin cut argentine style steak? You gotta try either one of those.

We started with some great appetizers and the house red wine. The delight however was the house favorite steak which by the way we ordered by the pound. The meat was... More

Great cuts and excellent quality, very good service. Hard to find a table so reserve in advance, is always crowded. Price is right but the place has a humble decor. It is worth to try a visit just for the meat.
