Do not eat Meat and this place is know for it (Rodizio). You can order the salad bar and Hot Buffet for lunch. Food choices and quality are great. Hot Buffet is limited to 4 dishes, but for the price you can not ask for more. Only reviewing the salad bar, not the meats!!

This Brazillian steak restaurant has been in North Miami for a few years now but still lacks the ability to provide good quality food and the service isn't much better. They serve filet mignon wrapped in beacon....NOT. It looks and tastes like top sirloin (false advertising). The beef ribs are always cooked tuff and they still don't know how to... More

I have been to Area Code 55 on several occasions. It is your standard Churrascaria, with nice seating, a cold bar containing a variety of cheese, salads, and other food items, the expected sugar-coated banana and little cheese bread-rolls, and of course, a few employees bringing skewers of meat to the tables where there is a card facing green-side up....

We went to this restaurant with a few friends last week to celebrate a birthday. We were skeptical about a buffet style dinner at first but had heard good things about Area Code 55. We were pleasantly surprised to find a nice, clean and inviting restaurant. The food was outstanding. The buffet options to accompany your meat were very diverse... More

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
