Review for El Puerto Argentinean Grill by Sean
Rating: Full RatingFull RatingFull RatingFull RatingFull Rating
The restaurant offers a great atmosphere with a historic building that has an outdoor patio, the food is amazing (must try the skirt steak!), large food portions, and great people complete this place as an amazing restaurant in Ybor City!
Pros: Love the food and Argentinean flavor El Puerto Argentinean Grill brings to Ybor City.
Cons: A little off the beaten path of Ybor City's 7th Avenue but well worth the visit!

Moved here from GA in October. It was Gasparilla Saturday, cover charge for everyone. We had called and were told ladies were free until 1030. When we got there at 1020 of course the line was wrapped around the corner. We went through vip line and was told about the cover charge. We were directed to speak to the manager who was the best. He walked us in and told us to have a good time.

Pros: 5 stories of music and diffrent vibes

Cons: Couldnt take your heels off, lol

I had heard quite a rave about Cheezy's but it took a while before I made it out. I have to say, this place is a perfect fit for Ybor City. True Italian cuisine in a speakeasy vibe makes it a unique dining experience.

Pros: The drink menu is amazing too. Dreamsicle type flavored float and the hand crafted cocktails are delicious.
