Glenn Lindgren: There are a few places in Miami where we like to go, but we don't like anyone else to know about it.

Jorge Castillo: We're not talking about anyplace that would hurt our reputations or get us arrested!

Raúl Musibay: No, it's nothing as exciting as that. What we're talking about are a few of our favorite little hole-in-the-wall places.

Glenn Lindgren: These places usually have two things in common: plenty of customers and not enough tables.

Jorge Castillo: We are reluctant to talk about these places because if they get any more popular than they already are, we'll never get a table!

Glenn Lindgren: One of these places is a little Argentinean grill called Che Tito's and if you promise to keep it to yourself, we'll give you all the details.

Jorge Castillo: We're not sure if Che Tito's serves the best steak in Miami, but this is the place we go when we want a great steak.

Raúl Musibay: Many people come here for the pizza, and it looks and smells great.

Glenn Lindgren: However, we've never been able to resist the tantalizing slabs of beef prepared just behind the bar on a simple grill.

Where we usually end up -- waiting for a table outside!

Che Tito's

Raúl Musibay: So OK, we have never had the pizza here. Maybe one of these day we'll get one "to go."

Glenn Lindgren: What we do get is the churrasco de entraña -- our favorite cut of beef for steaks. Yes, it's the long, thin cut from the plate of the cow.

Raúl Musibay: Also known as skirt steak.

Jorge Castillo: There is nothing fancy about Che Tito's, but the steaks are prepared to your liking and are always so tender and flavorful.

Glenn Lindgren: Splash on some chimichurri and there just isn't any excuse for side dishes or dessert. You will be in red meat eaters heaven.

A grilled Argentinean chorizo makes a great appetizer.

Jorge Castillo: If you have someone in your entourage who just won't eat red meat...

Glenn Lindgren: And why are you hanging around with people like that anyway?

Jorge Castillo: ... they will be delighted with the grilled chicken breast here.

Glenn Lindgren: Those from the North with a desire for familiar cow cuts, might want to try the sirloin steak or rib eye.

Raúl Musibay: But take our word for it, the churrasco is the way to go.

Jorge Castillo: Che Tito's also features several Italian dishes including spaghetti and meatballs and chicken fettuccine Alfredo.

This is it! The One you want! Don't let the vegetables scare you off -- they're mainly there for window dressing and won't get in the way of your pure beef enjoyment.

Glenn Lindgren: Again, we have never been able to pull ourselves away from the steaks long enough to try them.

Jorge Castillo: For dessert if you dare, they make a great panqueque con dulce de leche -- a thin crepe with caramel filling.

Glenn Lindgren: Che Tito's is tucked so severely into the corner of a Miami strip mall that even when you know where it is, it's still hard to find.

Jorge Castillo: Use the map link below to get you in the right neighborhood. Then look for the big pet food store that dwarfs Che Tito's next door.

Raúl Musibay: And remember, this place is our little secret!

We have to admit that chicken is very good here. This is the whole grilled chicken breast.
This breaded chicken sandwich is great for those with smaller appetites at lunchtime. The only time we have a small appetite is when we are sound asleep.
