JM’s has a lot of wine bottle selections not just from Italy but from Argentina and Mexico as well. Our favorite dish to order here is the surf and turf (US$70) and the slow-roasted prime rib (US$55).

#3: Asador La Tradicion

📍 Miguel Ángel Herrera, Glorieta s/n
💲 from $10 USD

La Tradicion is not your regular steakhouse in Cabo San Lucas because this is a street food stall! This group of Argentines decided to open their steakhouse on the streets of Los Cabos. Go here if you want to have a unique local experience!
