La Casa del Caballo Gets Serious About Steak

No horsing around at this fine Mexican steakhouse.

Regardless of what cut you order or which salsa you douse it in (if any), the red meat really is the star of the show at La Casa del Caballo. All cuts are tender and juicy and smoky and fall apart under the weight of a fork. If you're feeling extra hungry (and have some money burning a hole in your pocket), please do me a favor and order that four-pound rib eye cap medium rare. Take it home and eat it all week if you must, but I doubt it will take you that long.

La Casa del Caballo became known for serving large portions of meat.

This is what I was looking for. Very well written, Ms. Steinberg

That hunk of meat doesn't look particularly great.  I am confident I can cook a steak as good or better in my backyard for 30 percent of the price.

With such talent I can't imagine why you'd be reading restaurant reviews when you clearly don't need a restaurant.
