Even though the place was quiet the meat swords were kind of slow coming. The meats were every bit as tasty as usual bit kind of long on gristle. They might not be around for long.

This was a group business dinner and the food was okay. I had the garlic shrimp and loved it, but everyone who had the meat said it was okay. I would go back for the shrimp and bacon wrapped chicken.

Brasilia Grill is Bare Bones. Uninformed wait staff, bare tables, bar size drinks, beer in the bottle........you get the message. The salad bar is vast, but is mostly a hot bar for those who do not want to order off the menu. We ordered the meat platter rather than rodizio. We should have ordered rodizio. The wine list is adequate.... More

this is the place for the brazilian grill style meal. Lunch prices and specials are really specials, you get great portions. Service is very good, attentive nice girls (we always go to the bar side-it's casual, and weekdays it's like a working man's place, but at night there is live music, which is cool). I recently took my father here... More

Several kinds of meat, chicken, sausages carved for you at your table. This restaurant was working hard to be hospitable and serve good food. Unfortunately we were in the basement party room which wasn't set up very well and had little air conditioning. I would try it again though, for a smaller group.

I usually go there for lunch during the week and sit on the bar side. Weekends are too crowded and noisy. You get better service during the week and food is fresher and tastier. All and all I enjoy the food also reasonably priced.

Ate there with the family. We thought the place will be real good based on reviews. Not too disappointed or liked much. Its just an average place that does not compare to NaBrasa in Phili area. The meats are a hit and miss where some were dry and some had good taste. Salad bar can definitely also be better based... More
