El Rincon Gaucho Argentinian Steak House

El “Gaucho” appeared in the sixteenth century during the colonization of Spain and Portugal. The identity and reputation of the gaucho is known for the type of work because of the multiplication of bovines in savage state.

Wherever you have cattle, and cattle ranches, you have people on horseback tending to them. They’re called by many names: cowboy in the United States, gaucho in Argentina, Uruguay and southern Brazil. In the great wide plains areas, called pampas of Argentina, cattle raising is a primary way of life. The men who work the cattle are called gauchos. They had no way of preserving meat, and after butchering a cow, would cook it immediately over an open fire. This was the beginning of the asado, still popular today. Meat and maté, were the mainstays of their diets and the brewing and consumption of this herb called yerba maté was a several times a day ritual.

At El Rincon Gaucho we have dedicated ourselves to creating a place where we can enjoy the best of the pampas of South America . Selecting the best type of livestock and the highest quality cuts. From the choice of wood to the spices, our wish is for you to experience the best of an Argentinean kitchen.
