Las Vacas Gordas 


Las Vacas Gordas translates to The Fat Cows, and it is an utterly appropriate name. Like any parrillada, Las Vacas Gordas exists almost exclusively to facilitate the consumption of beef. The centerpiece of the restaurant's interior is the massive parrilla, over which the grill master stands, preparing steaks, sausages, chicken, sweetbreads and fresh-grilled vegetables. The scent of charring meat dominates the air. Large families gather inside and out for a big time. Wine flows freely.

You may have to sit on a bench alongside Normandy Drive while waiting for a table but count on an energetic server to bring bottles of Argentine wine to enjoy while you watch the traffic go by and inhale the heavenly scent wafting out from the grill.
