This place's philosophy seems simple: have a good time with us, bring in a smile and stuff yourself with meat until you drop dead (last one was a little overdone, sorry!). Great location, nice staff although a little "raw" (the staff, not the meat) but made the group feel welcome. Meat was good, although irregularly, some items were very good,... More

Been going here for well over 10 years and its just as delicious now as it was when I first started going. I have tried many of the items on their menu and am always delighted but my all time favorite meal is their spare ribs served with french fries and rice. I absolutely love the seasoning they use on... More

The food is great, they have the best Sangria and the heavenly whites dessert is to die for. I always reserve my heavenly whites when ordering as they have sold out in the past. Love the old world atmosphere and the roosters.

It was good but not very good if there was a 3.5 rating I would have given that. The food was ok but I had better Portuguese food. I think they are too busy to have the quality of food one would expect from a place with a good reputation. I was a bit disappointed.

If you're a meat lover, the all you can eat Rodizio is for you! Delicious grilled meats ranging from chicken, sausage to a variety of beef are abundant and continuous. If you're not in the mood for unlimited meat, the skirt steak is cooked to order and very flavorful. For the seafood lover, the whole Bronzini or the Grilled Squid... More
