“Good steak”
Review of El Tragadero

Reviewed 22 August 2017

We went to El Tragadero on a day trip to Juarez and got a table immediately on a Monday for lunch. The menu was only in Spanish and the waiter spoke little english but we managed to order a variety of food, including rib eye steak. The sauces and beans were delicious and the corn tortillas made by a lady by hand on the stove at the entrance were great. The rib eye was extremely tender and juicy, but the flavoring of sauce was not clear and perhaps not so good. The quesadillas and tacos were good and with authentic flavor, but the meat filling not the same quality as the rib eye. Service and overall experience was good.

Its been open for around 40 yrs and the decor its just amazing. Sunday is just packed with people that dont mind the 1 hour wait to enjoy the amazing meat cuts, home made tortillas and frijoles. Its a must if you are in Juarez Mexico.

Fresh made corn tortillas as you enter the tiny restaurant, the welcoming staff and the unique decorations of bullfighting memorabilia bring you to a different aspect of Mexican culture.

All the meat is fresh and first quality

You might need to wait to get a table but will be worth it

Old local restaurant with a throw back decor. The food was delicious and very hearty, the T-Bone steak was huge and tender,

Amazing taste, corn tortillas made in the house, chicharrones!! Only issue is the waiting time. But it is worth it!
