Award-winning, South American Steakhouse.

The Gauchos Were The Original Masters of the Grill. …AT PAMPAS, SO ARE WE. The name Pampas or ‘Plains’ is in reference to the Gauchos (Argentine cowboys) who are revered in the cultural history of Argentina. Pampas Gauchos were eternal wanderers of the Argentine landscape -celebrated in song and dance- remaining iconic figures of mythological proportion in Argentina even today.

TRADITION & ‘NINA’: Pampas is an homage.

Pampas Argentine Grill is a Family Owned & Operated Argentine Steakhouse serving San Diego, since 2000.

Founded in honor of the owners’ Grandmother, ‘Nina’, her chimichurri is still the cornerstone of every recipe & is served to every Pampas customer! The menu, decor & ambiance was created from her memory of Argentina at the turn of the century. We invite you to enjoy our exquisite appetizers, crisp salads, award-winning steaks, delicious chicken entrees, fresh local seafood, pastas, empanadas and delectable desserts.

Savor your meal with a glass of imported South American wine from our extensive menu or try one of our signature cocktails (we recommend the ‘White Sangria’ or Clericot) for the perfect accompaniment to any entree. Whether it’s a business lunch, Happy Hour, a romantic dinner at our Live Tango Dinner Shows, Pampas’ food and ambiance will transport your senses to Argentina… without leaving your seat! Come see why Pampas Bar & Grill was named “Best Steakhouse in San Diego” by the San Diego Home & Garden, The SD Reader, ABC Channel 10, City Voter, United Airlines & more!
