Reservations are a must at Kansas any night of the week, but you'll be waiting regardless; this spot is a local family favorite, and for good reason. Consider going early, which is 8 or 9 p.m. local time.

An American-style barbeque may not jive with your concept of the Argentine culinary experience - huge steaks and sausages, piles of French fries, and inexpensive wine in pitchers define the norm here. However, Kansas, an American grill located adjacent to Buenos Aires' famous hipódromo horse racetrack, is an upscale, atmospheric grill with a comfortable bar area, classy black leather booths, and impressive service that would knock the socks off restaurant managers around the city - not to mention the food. Order up a few beers, enormous caesar salads, authentic bacon swiss cheeseburgers, and 20-inch rib racks, and top it off with an ice cream sundae to be amazed at just how well Buenos Aires does - or out-does - American barbeque food.
