DINING - Americano Cheese Steak


Americano Cheese Steak - Serving Up Some of Your Favorite "Guilty Pleasures"


Two things you'll discover when living in Mexico: Mexican food here is generally better than Mexican food elsewhere, and the reverse is also generally true. However, Americano’s Cheesesteak Grill defies this with real American-style sandwiches, appetizers and desserts. In a land where hot dogs are plentiful, yet chili dogs are unknown, it’s a refreshing break from tortilla-based food.

The grilled cheesesteaks are the closest thing to a true Philly cheesesteak this side of the Appalachians, while the spicy chili dogs take you back to the State Fair. Enjoy some sinful chili cheese fries or picante chicken wings, then cool off with a root beer float or ice cream pie. And, the real star, “Mom’s Apple Pie,” with a crispy crumb topping, is as good as it gets.

Visit the owners, John and Carmina Ashman, as they serve up these guilty pleasures, Tuesday–Saturday, 8 a.m.–6 p.m., at 150 Nicolas Bravo in La Paz.
