Ranked #51 of 178 Restaurants in Plymouth
Cuisines: Brazilian
Dining options: Reservations, Buffet
Description: We miss Brazil. We miss the smell of trees, and the sounds and sights of Carnaval. We miss being in a land where football is played with feet. It's difficult for us to go home though, so we did the next best thing. We brought our home to us and established Rio Steak House. Sit at one of our tables and for a few hours, let us make you forget that you didn't need wings to get here. At Rio Steak House we celebrate the best of Brazilian cuisine, specializing in Brazilian barbecue, Churrascaria. First, help yourself to a variety of offerings from our well-stocked salad bar - some say enough to be a meal of itself. As you're seated, experienced carvers will arrive with succulent skewers full of freshly roasted cuts of meats, precisely separating the best portions for your plate until you won't be able to fit another bite. Our goal was to import an authentic Brazilian experience. Come taste for yourself some of the best of what Brazil has to offer, this time you won't need a passport.

There are SO many wonderful choices of dining in Plymouth. Skip this one. The servers didn't come around enough at all.. When they did they only served the right side of the table (we had a party of 12). The buffet portion,where you serve yourself, was mediocre. Prices are very high for what you get. The chicken wasn't cooked enough... More

We're disappointed that we let you down last time, Ashlee! We're confused that your entire table didn't get served last time -- there must have been some misunderstanding on our end. As for the chicken, we can assure you that our staff is always careful to fully cook all of the meats we serve. Had you let your waiter know,... More

Trip advisor was the reason we tried this restaurant after a day of touring around historic Plymouth. The food, service, environment and cleanliness of the restaurant and bathroom was all impeccable! If this place was in my hometown of Indianapolis, I'd be back often!

We went to Rio's steak house, after spending a Sunday afternoon in Plymouth. We had talked about a visit for a while and had been to a Brazilian Steak house before. Let's start with parking, it's a small lot with a lot of potential for problems with cars parked in the way of each other (if you have a truck... More

Thanks for taking the time to review your experience with us, Brian. It's disappointing to hear that you didn't have an excellent experience with us. You're right: it's frustrating that you had to wait so long to get more meat. I can assure you that isn't typical at our place -- it sounds like you may have caught us on... More

We tried Rio's after purchasing 2 Groupons. We didn't return after the first visit. Maybe dinner service is different than lunch/early dinner, but our food was definitely lacking. Many of the items served were cold, warm at best. The wait staff was slow, given there were only 2 other parties in the entire restaurant and the food was only okay.... More

As you can imagine, we're disappointed to hear this. Not only should you expect your food to be tasty and warm, but you should expect great service along with it when you dine here. I'm sorry if we let you down on those counts last time. It sounds like you may have caught us at an off time -- I'd... More

We were going camping and I came across a coupon on Living social for a Brazilian Steakhouse in Plymouth so I got it. We decided to eat there instead of cooking on our last night. Absolutely the best Brazilian steakhouse we have been to. The had a buffet of cold salads and vegetables as well as one with hot sides... More

Fantastic is what we love to hear, Khris! We truly appreciate your kind words and will have to share your compliments with our chefs. That Brazilian Coleslaw is one of our favorites, too. If you find yourself back in Plymouth, we hope you'll come see us again. Take care, Vagmar and Bill More

Great place to dine. One price and all you can eat. Waiters bring over the different meats that have been roasting on skewers. You help yourself to both hot and cold sides. Yummy!

I had a Groupon, so decided to try Rio's. I have been to Brazilian Steak Houses before, so understand and like the concept. However, this was on the lower end of others I have been to. It is in a quaint, out of the way location just outside of the downtown Plymouth area. We went for an early dinner, so... More

Thanks for sharing your honest feedback with us, Amy. Of course, we wish your experience had been better than just average.

We finally tried Rio's and found it outstanding! The service was wonderful, the food was exceptional! Salad bar with so many options - completely fresh and never empty while we were there. A smaller hot buffet with delicious Brazilian options - fish stew, meat stew, rice, fried bananas... Then came the skewers of perfectly cooked meats, chicken, pork and sausage... More

If you haven't come back since February, we'd love to see you in again soon -- you should come catch a World Cup match at our place! Until next time, Vagmar... More
