What said about us
" HANDS DOWN my favorite restaurant in all of New York.The restaurant is also a butcher shop that carries Argentinian snacks and merchandise. The butcher said that they sourced their meat from Nebraska and were top notch quality. You're welcomed by a complimentary appetizer of cheese, salami and tomato drizzled in chimichurri sauce. We ordered another round ( extra $$$) because it was just THAT GOOD. The dinner rolls were crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside & were straight out of the oven. We ordered the mixed grill (parrillada completa) and the #4 sausage, skirt steak and short ribs. The mixed grill comes with an assortment of black sausage, skirt steak, short ribs and liver. Perfect for those who are fans of the liver and assorted sausages. The short ribs and skirt steak are my favorite--juicy & grilled to perfection. The mixed grill comes on a sizzling hot plate and is bursting with flavor. Each entree comes with a side of salad or fries (GET THE FRIESSS, so crispy so good). Did I mention the sangria? Smoooooooooooth just so smooooooth. We finished off our meal with the dulce de leche churros and I couldn't have been happier. Everything about this place is what hopes & dreams are made of. Happily stuffed, I felt like I could roll myself back home. All in all, will be coming back here, time and time again."
"We come here every time we visit New York! This place is a gem and we are never disappointed!"
"I picked up meat here for a Father's Day bbq. I picked up chorizo, short ribs, and skirt steak. I can see that I am extremely happy the quality of meat received. The cuts of meet were absolutely perfect! We marinated the steak and the short ribs differently and both cook great. The chorizo was excellent as well and I really want to find out what they put in it!I would highly recommend grabbing meats from the butcher to grill for some high quality meats that are priced great!"
"HANDS DOWN as a Yelp Elite which reviews a lot of places this is my favorite restaurant in all of NYC! If I could rate this place 6 stars I would just for the food alone. Being Argentinean this place is the closest I feel like I am actually in Argentina without leaving Queens. I always bring my family and friends here whenever they visit. The hour subway ride and walk each way from Manhattan is totally worth every second. I always order the entraña with chimichurri sauce. It's very delicious and large! Big enough to split with two people. The fries are crispy to taste and the mixed salad tops the meal off with a taste of freshness. Don't forget to try it with a glass of Malbec! The service itself is wonderful. Most of the customers are locals from the area. The ambiance of the restaurant is causal but yet romantic enough to bring friends, family, or a date. I went there on Valentine's Day and the place was packed! All tables are served for free freshly baked bread and an appetizer that includes salami, cheese, tomatoes and oil. Yes, please! The walls are decorated with paintings and trinkets which makes you feel like you have been teleported to Buenos Aires. Did I mention the best part of all? There is an actual butcher shop inside of the restaurant which serves cuts of Argentinean meat to the customers. They also sell products from Argentina such as keychains, flags, mate gourds, alfajores, jerseys, jackets and more. If your craving a good steak and want to try some affordable and tasty Argentinean food look no further than El Gauchito!"
"I always go here with my family, it has become our go to spot because we are never disappointed. It has the best may and chimichurri, and surprisingly great fries. We always order the white sangriaand its usually good too. I would definitely recommend this place!"
"I have been to this place when it was very small. However, i believed they made it bigger. The food is out of this world. Its in the heart of queens and its a charm. The meat is so flavorful and tender. I would recommend this place to all the meat lovers out there. I also recommend to make a reservation because it can get crowded at times."
