I love visiting Veracruz, and El Cacharrito makes it even more worthwhile. The service is great, the meats are amazing and the banana dessert is to die for. If you are looking for a good cut of beef and do not want to be disappointed this is the place to go!

We went for dinner and were very satisfied. The waiter was young but not clumsy, attentive. Excellent food, the sommelier had several options to offer, wine with good temperature (specially in a place so hot as Veracruz).
