The steak was delicious. Very flavorful and tender. Enjoyed appetizers. Side dishes just ok. Delicious dessert as well. Service was great very friendly staff. Owner brought us a bottle of Moscato for the 50th birthday celebration which was very kind of him!

We got there and the waitress was like we were begging for food. She had a very bad attitude all the time. I had to ask for someone else to come and at least serve water. The worst thing after that it was that the tip was already included so I was forced to pay for something I didn't actually... More

I went to this restaurant like 5 years ago for the first time when it was half smaller. The food was amazing and the prices affordable. I came back last week and I feel it was a little pricey. Fortunately, it was still a delicious meat! :)

We love steak, and in Miami there are plenty of excellent options and have visited most steak houses. Wife and I had never been to Las Vacas Gordas before. Seems weird, but for the first time, I experienced how very good food can turn into bland hospital food due to the overall experience and poor service. The disillusionment settled only... More

I am convinced that this is THE place to go for great Argentine grill. Have tried all places and this is my favorite. No reservations accepted but we were seated immediately on Saturday evening around 7:30. Ordered chorizo, morcilla, and chinculin(well done) as an appetizer. All delicious and cooked to perfection. Shared the entraña, Russian salad and fries. Too much... More

This place came recommended by a local for an amazing fu##ing steak 😂 But after reading the reviews I have to admit I was a little apprehensive. We visited on a Wednesday eve so it was a little bit quiet but Andrea served us and she was fantastic! She explained all the cuts and showed us that different steaks. She... More

It started with with wanting a little protein after my workout, little did I know if would be enough to feed an army. This restaurant was small with a large atmosphere and the food just out of this world. The chicken was huge and simply moist and the rolled beef was something that I just cannot explain, you just need... More

Super large portions great for sharing. Incredible food, the meat is delicious! It's not cheap, but worth every penny. Love it, I keep going back. The house Malbec is also excellent.

The restaurant itself is not very large, about 25 to 30% of those of us going to dinner are asked to sit outside by a very busy Street. Their meats are delicious, and very large. So if folks wish to split a 1.5lb piece of meat, they are forcibly charged a "sharing fee".
