A good friend has been talking about Rafain and telling us to go for a while, we didn't pay attention as we've been to the two Texas de Brazil, Danzante, Estilo Gaucho and other churrascarias around the US. We've also visited Fogo, Porcao and a couple others in Brazil (SP and Rio) to make the comparison closer to the original... More

Rafain is a brazilian churrascurria. Head inside for a nice salad bar selection, rotating selection of fire grilled meats - filet mignon, top sirloin, cheese crusted pork, sausages, chicken, and so many more. Rafain also offers fire -grilled pineapple with cinnamon sugar. Super yummy. The cheese puffs and grilled plantain are different and tasty. We love nom-ing down those cheese... More

The atmosphere is relaxing and quite. Most of the staff have a heritage from Brazil in some fashion, and have a passion for their dining experience. The food is the reason you go though. It is unbelievably Great!!! My wife and I have visited Rafains Dallas four times, and each time they leave us astounded.

First time at this restaurant....purchased a Groupon to try it out. I have been to several local Brazilian steak houses, in my opinion, this one is the best.

And unlike most Brazilian steak houses I have tried, dessert... More

Excellent salad bar, lots of choices! Very attentive staff (recommended the roasted red pepper soup which was sensational)! More meat than you could ever imagine!

Service was excellent with servers always around to take care of your needs. Reasonably priced. I would gamble to try other brezilian restaurants in town before going back.

We were seated upon arrival - reservation time honored. We were greeted by a friendly hostess and shown to a table by the stairs - which we requested a change and got another table by the stairs - and the restaurant was not crowded. I really wanted a table right by the bathroom...only kidding. Wait staff came by to ask... More
