First time going to this place. Service is nice, but you need to be familiar with the ritual: eat salads first and save room for the meats. More expensive than your regular buffet restaurant. Food selection is good: salads, cold cuts and of course the meats. No fresh fruit today was offered. Desert and drinks are extra. Gratuity is already... More

For those who have allergy or sensitivity to MSG - BEWARE! I went last Thursday to celebrate a friend's birthday and felt pretty sick for 2 days after eating at Area Code 55, with the typical symptoms after ingesting a healthy serving of MSG!!! I did not eat any meat - I only ate salad, rice and some bacalhau (cod... More

We couldn't get into any of the regular chain Brazilian food joints so we figured we would give this place a try. We were glad we did and I would say it was on par with any of the others and about 30% less expensive. The cheese bread was the best I have ever had. Meats were good quality and... More

The price it's fine for what you get, but if you are Brazilian and knows what's Steakhouse means when you experience the true "Brazilian Steakhouse", than you should pay a little more money and really go to a nice Brazilian Steakhouse! This restaurant needs more customer service, when the waitress knows you are about to start second round on the... More

I have gone there many times and always had a great meal. Hot off the oven pães de queijo,salads, hearts of palm, all the famous Brazilian meat cuts like Picanha, Fraldinha, etc. Dessert is also very nice. The price is pretty good too!

As long as you know the drill re churascarria's, you'll survive. If you are a carnivore, go lightly on the excellent selection of hot appetizers, cheeses, salads etc as the parade of grilled skewered meats will invade your palate. If you are not a huge meat person, then you can gorge on the salad and hot dishes. I've been here... More

All the meats were tender and delicious, the service was terrific. Believe it or not, the grilled pineapple was fantastic...definitely try it. More than enough food for anyone. A really great treat!

This restaurant is not worth the price. The service is horrible and they force a 18% tip on there customers even if they don’t deserve a penny. The food is below average and the salad bar is mediocre. I will never recommend this restaurant to anyone! There are plenty of good Brazilian steak restaurants out there.
