El Salto De Las Ranas
El Salto De Las Ranas (the jump of the frogs) in Vicente Lopez is one of the better Mexican places I've been to. Their motto is "la vida siempre necesita un poco de picante" (life always needs a little bit of spice), so I knew that was a good sign. We went on a Friday night with no reservation, but waited only 10 minutes. The restaurant is large, especially by Argentine standards, and has enough tables and staff to serve people quickly and well. The decor was more authentic than most with brightly painted wood tables, sombrero and cactus themed decor and hand painted tiles. The waiting area was also decorated with quotes, including my favorite restaurant/bar staple "si bebes para olvidar, paga antes de empezar" (if you drink to forget, pay before you start).
