this was my last visit to Area Code 55. the buffet is not the same quality than years ago, less variety and poor in quality. the waiter was very pushy at the time to order the beverages, when he was removing the plates, I have to believe that was not intentional , he spread the meat juice in my shirt......

One of the best steak houses in the area. Something is not quite right: Host: Friendly as it used to be. Nothing new here. Service: Marginal. I had the impression the waiter could not hear and/or listen to me. Had to ask for the same things over and over again. Disappointing. Deteriorated. Buffet: It seems all the good things are... More

The quality of meat is average. Beef ribs (my favorite) were not edible (and they were pushing them) fatty and tough. This place can't compare to Texas De Brazil and Fogo de Chow. The quality of the meats (tenderness and flavor) is exceptional at Fogo And Texas De. Area code 55 is ok for the price but for an extra... More

It was our first time and we were impressed. Take your appetite. The service was very good. The salad bar was good too but let's be honest you don't go to a Brazilian steakhouse for the salad bar. You go for the meat. The selection of meats is overwhelming and all tasted very good. I think there was only one... More

I have never been to this place and I have decided to give it a try. I am not a meat person, but my friends assured me that I have to go. Our server A Russian lady was amazing, our food was delicious and everyone enjoyed the salad bar and the desserts. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone!... More

Nice place, great food and an amazing salad bar. Once they started bringing the food, it did not stop. I was looking for a certain cut of steak and they brought it right out once I asked for it. If you want good food and at a fair price, this is the place to go and bring your appetite.
