Gaucho Parrilla Argentina Restaurant Review

: Food lovers took pride in first discovering Gaucho Parrilla Argentina in 2013, when it had a few seats and next to no standing room. The expanded Gaucho 2.0 still hits the mark for grilled rib-eye with chimichurri, garlicky shrimp with lemon, redefined "grilled cheese" and crispy-edged potato wedges. The signature offering charred on the wood-fired grills is beef, but the caramelized onion-smothered pork tenderloin will do just as well. Most menu items are fairly substantial and come with an anything-but-drab house salad and grilled toast. Gaucho has enough space to accommodate its guests, some waiting two hours on Saturdays to get in the door. Note that carryout patrons can skip the line and access the topping bar, which includes the famous chimi. The improved Gaucho has a BYOB program, slightly updated menu and private-event area.
