We went there for my husband's birthday in September. The attention was really nice, we were seated immediately in a nice corner. It's a great place for couples. To start with we order Teriyaki wings, they were absolutely delicious!!! I have never tasted better anywhere not even in the US. We each order different burgers which were simply perfect in... More

Palermo Hollywood is a touristy area and sadly it shows from the many bars and restaurants around here - most of them are quite expensive but not really very good. I guess you could say the same about this place. Prices were average though but so was the food. I ordered ribs with salad - got them with french fries... More

This place is a gem!!!! The food ( I had the pork ribs.. much better than Kansas to me); the service (food takes about 15 mins); the vibe (american jams)... all perfect. I can't rave about this place enough. They place american music (a little loud) but great! The staff is friendly and a great location.

This restaurant was rated by the Argentina Independent as having one of the top five hamburgers in Buenos Aires. It did not disappoint! When we ordered we were told it would take 30 mins for the hamburgers (not sure why or if this is typical), so we ordered onion rings as an appetizer. They were delicious - very crispy with... More

I give the service two stars and the food 3.5. Allow me to explain. I have ordered delivery from them several times and it usually arrives in about one to 1.5 hours. That's a long time, but the food is consistently pretty good, although the pork ribs are not as good as they are at Kansas. I was craving the... More

I only had cocktails here but the food looked good and people seemed to be enjoying it. Excellent maracuya caiproiska and the staff couldn't be nicer. Great location on the corner for people watching on a sunny day

We have been traveling for 6 months so we crave for American food whenever it's available. We stayed in this hostel in Palermo Hollywood. We've passed by Bar BQ a few times and finally got in. Owner Nico promised they have the best barbecue sauce for ribs. So, we ordered our favorite buffalo wings and pork ribs as we always... More

I have been to Bar BQ´s a few times during my stay in Buenos Aires and I canot reccomend the restaurant highly enough to fellow travelers looking for authentic tasting American style barbeque. Absolutely figer-licking good. First you have to start with the buffalo wings as they cannot be found anywhere else in Buenos Aires, especially not with spicy buffalo... More

Staying in Palermo

Neighbourhood Profile
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
