TripAdvisor must have a "quick button" to visitor inform a place closed. I search this place here at TripAdvisor, went there to have dinner but it's no longer opened. Very frustrating moment!

I read some of the reviews for this place and I was doubtful until I tried their brisket sandwich. This is the closest thing to authentic Texas BBQ you'll find here in Argentina. If you're homesick for anything American, try this place out.

I have been living in BA for a year now and I have just discovered this place. I am not to blame though, it is almost impossible to notice the place from outside. The place is small and cozy; probably doesn't fit more than 20...More
