Tasty and Delicious

Great food, nice decorum and reasonable prices. I visited this restaurant with my wife and we tried several appetizers and wine. Had an octopus salad that was of the hook. The "Ensalada de Pulpo." as we call it back home was served in big chunks and it was very tender. In addition, the stuffed... read more

Came here with family a day after Christmas. The drinks, food, atmosphere, and live music are top notch. We had the Rodizio which is a bunch of BBQ meats which keeps coming out until you are completely satisfied. It was awesome. Definitely coming here again.

Definitely order the Top Sirloin (picanha). We ordered the serving for 2 and it comes with rice and beans and salad bar. Great price for the amount of food that you can eat. Stuffed! Steak can just as ordered.

Went here with a group oh 14. We had a guys night out and thought about their other spot but decided to go here. Their salad bar is very small and not exceptional at all. They could work on a bit of a larger selection like many other Churascarias I've been too. The meats are OK. They have a decent... More

I took my mother-in law to the restaurant along with her friend as I wanted to introduce them to the Brazilian rodizio and we were all disappointed. Service was pretty good but the quality of the food no. The bread served as an appetizer was hard as a rock and the rice and fried yucca tasted like they had been... More

As Brazilian expatriates originally from Rio Grande do Sul, my parents and I are no strangers to Brazilian churrasco and have eaten at many of the Brazilian restaurants in the New York metro region over the years. We all miss the food and all-you-can-eat set-up that we remember from southern Brazil. Yet this Merchant Street location of Boi na Brasa... More
