This is a Brazilian style steak house. There is an extravagant, beautifully displayed salad buffet complete with a giant wheel of Parmesan cheese. The entrees are sticks of all kinds of meat carried by waiters who come to your table. The sides are fried ground corn fritters (much like polenta), slightly sweet grilled plantains and mashed potatoes. The food just... More

Was attending a conference nearby and had reservations here one night. Upon arriving with our party of 11, we noticed most of the restaurant was full with our fellow conference attendees!! We were immediately offered trays with specialty drinks. We were all stuffed upon leaving!!!! So much food!!!

I did not eat much of the salad bar, but did have a great caipirinha. I suggest you try everything. I was impressed with... More

One of my favorite locations. I've eaten here 25+ times. Lunch or Dinner, it is always awesome. You will see people say to ignore the salad bar...MISTAKE! I am mostly a carnivore myself and I will tell you right now, the salad bar is AMAZING! If salad to you means a green thing buried under 3" of ranch, then this... More

I call these Brazilian BBQ places "The Beast Feast." We made a reservation for 5:30 Christmas evening and showed up early and had to wait for a table as the place was wall to wall folks eating out. Could not tell you what was on the salad bar. Why bother with carbs with so much meat to sample? W stated... More

My husband and I have frequented Estancia for years. We have never been let down by the wonderful service or the quality of the food. The salad bar is fresh with a few cheeses we snack on throughout the meal. The cheese bread is a favorite as well. We usually skip the sides of polenta and banana, and really just... More

Excellent service! Nice salad bar. Meats were very hit or miss. Top sirloin was leather tough. Bacon wrapped filet very good. Regular filet very dry. Chicken dishes very good. Most meats a little lacking in flavor. Beef ribs bland and greasy. Ribeye was good though. Loved the fried polenta

Three of us arrived for dinner. We were pleasantly greeted. Our waiter introduced himself to us and from that moment on, he and his staff, saw to our every need! The food and variety are excellent. Will most certainly return!
