Its a fun place to take a group. Price is a flat fee, and there are plenty of options, both on the meat side and the extensive salad bar. You need to be a good eater to make it worthwhile, so go hungry.

We eat out most nights and can afford good food. This restaurant is new, clean and modern. The staff are very friendly but lack experience. So what is the problem. It is the food.

Who lives in South Brasil feels lile home...A selection of salads (buffet) , rice and beans (Brasilian style) and great meats from all kinds (pork, lamb). They bring some fried bananas, mashed potatos and fried polenta on the table. Well... kids never eat so much in USA !!!

Rodizio with excellent quality meats cooked to perfection. Service this time was a little less attentive than before, the cheese breads were cold and the AC was on so high we forewent dessert and hightailed it out into the warm night.
