Looks good but if there's any quality beef, it's imported from Argentina.

Okay.. I just got back from an early lunch there. They serve mostly pork ribs, but also beef ribs. The burger was average (Papi Carne far superior), the fries were meah, coleslaw was okay.. and while the pork ribs were super tender, the smokey flavor and the sauces were so intense that you couldnĀ“t really taste the flavor of the meat itself. Wigs were decent andf service was super-friendly, but still inexperienced. The locale was fine... kind of a funky narrow space, just off of Larca at 28 de Julio.

I thought the place was worth the visit, but it's nothing out of this world and I doubt I'll go back.

A little heavy on the liquid smoke, I suspect, being there is not much oak in lima let alone any wood.

They have a smoker oven and you can buy plenty of wood in Lima, but yeah, maybe there was some added smokey flavoring in the sauce. It was pretty strong. It will be good to hear somebody elses experience.
