Went here for dinner one Sunday night. First of all, as we walked into this place, there werent any employees welcoming us, just looked at us as we sat ourselves down at any table. We were given menus, and we asked if we can just eat at the buffett, employee says yes. Boy was it really expensive! Didn't order drinks,... More

The price is fair/the food excellent! don't forget the "dairy free" coconut flan, if you have room after eating here.

We brought my Brazilian mother in law for dinner here. Most waiters (if not all) were Brazilian so that made her happy to finally speak Portuguese to other people. She thought all the meat offerings were truly authentic churrasco and the buffet dishes well cooked and presented. The deserts were also very good and authentic (try the passion fruit mousse)!...

The prices have risen at this "new" location from over 1 year ago, but i think i will still go for now. It's cheaper than a competitors prices, which is why i will go here 9 times out of 10 vs. the other place, but I hope they stop raising it! They could offer a few more meat varieties for... More

Everything was very, very good and a meat lovers paradise. The food is the same as Espetus in taste & quality at half the price. The ambiance is ok, not great. but then I go to restaurants for the delicious food, not the ambiance. Affordable when you're taking the whole family. Very nice selection at the salad bar. All of...

Cleo's is amazing. They have a buffet of salad fixin's, rice, breads, soups and an array of Brazilian dishes (fejoida too), but its the meat on the skewers that are delicious. Waiters will come to the table with a skewere and you accept or decline the latest meat. They have everything, beef, chicken, tri-tip, chicken wings, chicken hearts (didn't try... More

not bad. meat is a bit salty and on the dry side (i like my meat med/rare). i've also been to espetus in SF and it's apparent why there's a price difference. it was a bit crowded during peak times so i would highly recommend a reservation. for cheap brazilian BBQ, it's decent, but if you want to treat yourself,...

If you're on the Atkins diet and don't have any issues with high blood pressure or cholesterol...you'll enjoy Cleo's. Cleo's is a good economical introduction to Brazilian churrascaria. Their buffet offers a selection of traditional Brazilian food. However, their caipirinhas and homemade desserts were the highlights for me. A good place to be loud, laughing, and casual with good company.
