This place offers a great breakfast buffet, Americans beware! Most Mexicans do breakfast rather than Brunch, even on Sunday. Try to be there before 9:00 in order to obtain seating on weekends. Fresh fruit and fruit juices squeezed on the premises are good. Craving for "garnachas"? Deep fried quesadillas and sopes are available, omelletes with several goodies to be stuffed... More

El Tango offers plenty of Argentina dishes my fiancé and I ordered the octopus served with grilled vegetables, guacamole, empanadas and chorizo. We really enjoyed each one and had cocktails too. We received great service and would definitely return again. It was a nice restaurant romantic and quiet.

I was very disappointed with the food. I ordered grilled chicken and although the portion was big enough, the chicken was dry, you could tell it was frozen and they didn't cook it properly to make it tender and juicy. In my opinion, the waitress was excessively attentive, he didn´t move away from the table for a second, I even... More

Large tray of all the cuts of meats presented and described in detail (if you understand Spanish). Meat quality is very good, cooked as requested - everything you'd expect from a specialty steak house. Somewhat over-priced given all the choices in the area.

We hat a dinner for a party of 5 food is good but steak is not the perfect one. Octopus is good and salads are also ok.

My sister and I had dinner here, not realizing that it was Valentine's Day. The place was packed with couples and families eating. We were seated after a few minutes' wait. We ordered the specials: my sister had the pasta bolognesa and I had the shrimp cooked in butter and garlic. While we were waiting for our dinners to arrive,... More

Good steaks. If you are there on the week-ends there is a surprise of some flamenco dancing. The dancers were good but in my personal opinión lasted a Little to long or perhaps should have started later. A Little loud to talk over dinner.

On February 14 2015, I visited the Argentinian Restaurant EL TANGO, in Guadalajara, Mexico. We intended to have dinner and simultaneously watch the Tango show. The show began on time, at 22:00Hrs, but interrupted for long pauses over the 45 minutes it was supposed to last. The couple presented three dances in that period. The typical Argentinian dinner was, although... More

So this is your average steakhouse / upscale dining place with a distinct characteristic....they have nightly entertainers dancing the tango while you dine. Nice touch!! The food is pretty good and not too pricey. Its located on a glorieta that is easy to get to in Zapopan. The neighborhood gets a little shady late at night. I parked my car... More
