In its previous lives, Tango’s has been Santino’s Tapas and Patagonia Grill. Its latest incarnation has kept its Spanish/Argentinean flavor, turning out good steaks without any hype.
Empanadas, croquetas, and the omelette-like Spanish tortillas are still standards, and the menu offers grilled items, pastas and other dishes.
A skirt steak lunch special includes very good mashed potatoes topped with a few freshly made potato chips. The steak is tender, with a nice charred crust. The mortal death blow of goodness is the chimichurri sauce, a tangy concoction of olive oil, parsley, garlic and vinegar; it’s great on bread and meat.
Skirt steak lunch special (also includes soup) is $10.
