Plan on paying about $30 (not including your drink or tip) for your meal. But the food is AWESOME. They have waiters who come around and they have different meats on a big stick. They have things like Peppered Steak, Chicken, Lamb, and pork prepared in different ways to absolute perfection. They will cut off a portion of that for... More

We had a group of 8 people on a Thursday night. We called ahead, which I would highly recommend. The place was packed! The guys carrying huge skewers of meat came around and filled up our plates with some of the best meat ever. The salad bar was amazing as well. I recommend showing up starving. You will leave uncomfortably... More

This is a great place to come if you are hungry. With endless amounts of meats. The service was wonderful and you were never waiting for food they were very fast. The only problem is the meat was served too rare for my taste, I had to stock to the chicken and pork, because I like no blood in my... More

My family truly loved this place especially since my husband is Portuguese. Our server was excellent in helping guide us since this was our first time. He catered to our children which was so nice. The food and drinks were amazing.

If you like meat, and mainly beef, this is your place. You will eat too much if you get one of the 'gaucho' meals, because they will keep bringing meat as long as the green card is up. You can take a break if you need and start again. Good food and good service.

Its like the energizer bunny of food. It keeps coming and coming and coming! The food is awesome, as Sarah D stated "Meat!". You will have endless choices and cuts coming to your table. Flip the sign over when you are digesting and look over the menu. The wait staff is NOT pushy and really friendly. If you want something,... More

My wife took me for my birthday dinner. The amount of food you can eat is impressive. Try a little of everything. And make sure you get the level where it comes with the pineapple, it is worth it!
