Food is pretty good. Service could have been a little better.

We had a group of 12 and they got us in on short notice. This is my third experience at the Brazilian type restaurant and I would say it's my third favorite. Had I not eaten in the one in downtown Nashville, TN or Louisville, i would have said it was excellent. However the other two were definitely... read more

Meat, meat, & more meat! We went on a Monday night with a party of 6 & we had a reservation. I liked the atmosphere & everything I had was great. Our waiter was attentive & efficient. The salad bar was clean & had a wide range of food options but let's be honest the meat is what we're all... More

I went for lunch with a friend. I was told it ess a great place, however I was a bit disappointed with the service. Portuons of meat were very small and had to wait a bit in between. I left hungry tired of waiting for servers to show up. I don't think I'll be back.

The evening started off with reservations. We arrived and the table was not ready. Then, $60 per person for a loud, crowded and dirty restaurant. The meat was chewy and the cuts were poor. The salad bar was maybe a notch better than Golden Corral. The scalloped potatoes were empty and we asked them to please bring out fresh and... More

This place rocks!! The service was phenomenal and the meats were amazing. If you go away hungry, it is your own fault. From the salad bar, to the meats, to the sides, and desserts; it's awesome!!!!

Overall, this place is excellent for a Brazilian steakhouse. However, several times the gauchos did not bring all the meats, and when they did, they were rare (our table likes medium well). When we asked for a medium well cut, nobody ever came back with one. The Devour Downtown is the best time to go (usually in Jan and Aug)... More

Soooo good!!!!!! The never ending meat you could die for. Don't forget about the salad bar, the mozzarella balls are huge and they have a huge selection. 12 different kinds of meat right to your table too!!

Every time I’m in Indy, I pay a visit to this Brazilian Steakhouse for their great 16 types of roasted meats that are brought to the table, sliced and served by the waiters (actually they call them the gaucho chefs). I usually pay only one visit for 2 reasons: the all-you-can-eat meat carved tableside is really an attempt to my... More
