What You'll Get
To function properly, the human body requires a steady stream of nutrients, sunlight, and compliments from other species about its opposable thumbs. Use your bendable digits to provide yourself with nutrients with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Argentinean fare and drinks at Argentango Grill in Hollywood.
Self-touted as "the home of the world's longest steak," Argentango Grill dishes out a menu of authentic Argentinean fare—from succulent cuts of meat to grilled fish to crispy empanadas. Tongues tap-dance for the jumbo de cangrejo, an large Argentine-style crab cake bathed in caramelized pineapple and avocado salsa, cilantro oil, and balsamic ($8.95). The fan-favorite skirt steak, longer than a Saturday wait at the DMV, is a marinated meat offering that comes with a side dish such as sweet-potato fries, mashed potatoes, or penne marinara ($27.95). Before being seared rare for rowdy revelers, the blackened tuna is sprinkled with spicy Cajun herbs, freshening it up for a romantic rendezvous on a bed of mashed potatoes with tomato relish and guacamole ($19.95).
Argentango Grill houses two distinctive dining rooms to enhance its guests' eating experiences. Decorated with the streets of Buenos Aires in mind, the first room greets the eyes with rustic wood, exposed brick, and three arched windows that frame the Redondo outside. The second space channels South Florida flair with teardrop lights hanging from 15-foot ceilings, flowing filmy curtains, and music videos projecting cage matches of supercentenarian pinochle.
Zagat gives Argentango Grill's fare a rating of 21, and the Sun-Sentinel reviewed the restaurant. More than 80 Yahoo! Travelers give Argentango a four-star average, as do Citysearchers. Nearly 20 Yelpers give it a 3.5-star average, TripAdvisors give it an average of 3.5 owl eyes, and 76% of Urbanspooners recommend it.

Self-designated the “home of the world’s longest steak,” Argentango blankets every inch of its kitchen’s cooking surfaces with stately slabs of beef, juicy chicken breasts, and flaky fillets of fish. Chefs weigh down plates with the entraña, a hefty 28-ounce skirt steak longer than the lifespan of a butterfly, and the vacio steak, a classic Argentinean flap-meat steak that's Angus certified and weighs in at 16 ounces. Smaller stomachs can find solace in the 10-ounce baby entraña and baby vacio versions.
The restaurant's authentic Argentinean menu also includes the gnocchi del 29, named after an old Argentinean tradition of eating the homemade dumplings on the 29th day of every month with hopes of summoning prosperity and extra napkins from the village over. Patrons can enjoy their meals inside the spacious Argentango Grill or opt for al fresco dining under the shade of oversized umbrellas or the tallest waiter.
