This restaurant suffers from the same affliction that other restaurants in this location have experienced, and that is a poor location. Tango is no longer open, there is a different restaurant in this location, which I have not tried.

This Argentine restaurant needs help. There was no one there and what we were served (appetizers only) were bland, greasy and tasted like potato, all of them. We only ordered the appetizers as we were leery of there being no one else in the place....More

Decided to try this place for our 25th anniversary, what terrible mistake. After living in Anchorage for 27 years I can honestly say this was the worst meal I have ever experienced. If your expecting top service for an expensive menu don't walk into El...More

I just ate the worst food I have ever had in my life. I really don't understand how this restaurant has a single good review. The meat was so over cooked, not only was it dry, it resembled jerky. The sausage was stuffed with chunks...More

Atmosphere - average. Food - ok, not as special as I would have hoped. Service - average. I was hoping for a great experience, as Anchorage has a dearth of good Latin restaurants. Not sure I would return. My Hispanic friend was not impressed either....More

I have been a customer since 2007. The dishes couldn't get any better and tastier. Just went back last week and the atmosphere is still wonderful. The Latin melodies played by the gentleman with the guitar, brought back so many memories. A true taste of...More

Tango is not a Mexican restaurant...! One of my all time favorite cuts of meat is the "Churrasco" flat meat, cooked only as an Argentine can prepare it. Currently in Anchorage El Tango, or Tango Restaurant is the only one offering this juicy tasty Latin...More

One of the worst restaurant experiences I have ever had. I ordered a shredded beef dish which they did not have. The waiter highly recommended a barbecued veal dish as an alternative. What arrived on my plate was a slab of fat. There was barely...More
