    Tango Argentinean Grill, always a favorite

    I have finally realized that our first sit down dinner will almost always be Tango. It sits over near Salt and Pepper, in the little strip of restaurants on the corner across from the Barcelo.
    The have redone the apaulstry inside to get rid of the completely tacky and out of place cow print fabric. it looks much nicer.
    They have a good early bird menu but we order off of the regular menu since Jons favorite isn't offered.
    The ceviche appetizer was good, fresh, not great, and while it was fine, I would not order again. The bread comes with 3 dips, a garlic butter, chimichurri, and red onions.
    Jon loves the tenderloin churassaco and the flavor of it, but did say it wasn't as tender as he remembered. He also had a peppercorn sauce with it that was good. I tried the pork chimichurri and you really didn't even need a knife to cut it. The portion was huge. We also love the way they do their house potato wedges. We have never had a bad meal or bad service here.

    Tracey... I remember our first meal there about 15 years ago.... they actually had a couple doing the Tango as a nightly event. Then a few years later they gave up that part of the dining room for space for a Burger King....!

    One of my favorite spots. The chimichurri is delicious! I slather it on the bread and the empanadas. I love the steaks and have always had great service. Lately my favorite meal is the skirt steak. So tender and delicious. My favorite waiter was always Juan and he was the reason we would go 2 or more times during out 2 week stay. Juan moved on to his own place, but Tango is still a must-go for me every year!

    Burger King is now the Dragonfly which has sushi and other Japanese offerings. We may check it out, not sure.

    I will be honest I miss Burger King. There was something about being drunk and walking home eating a cheeseburger after midnight that was fun, lol. You also never knew what you would see late night....I saw some "interesting" stuff through the years.
