Don Claudio

City of Mendoza

Overview

If you are looking for the perfect, most authentically Argentine spot, for the famous Argentine lomo, look no further. Don Claudio offers up the simple meat and french bread sandwich a variety of mouth-watering ways, with the owners Don and Claudio always overseeing the process closely. 

To accompany your lomo, or perhaps milanesa, table wine and shoestring fries are recommended, although the fries can be a bit hit or miss. You might want to indulge on the shelled peanuts instead. 

The ambience is very casual, with a cafeteria feel and simple tables and chairs, plus a television in the corner. Don't let this discourage you; this casual feel is truly part of the charm here.
