There are many version of churrasco in the US -- this is the best. We have dined at the Houston and Beverly Hills locations. This review is on the Houston location. The first thing I like is that parking is not a problem. Big city restaurants can be lots of fun, but you have to get to them first. You... More

This resturant is nice, but the food is not spectacular. It is just an overpriced meat buffet. The drinks are good but expensive so be prepared to splurge on them. Everyone was nice and that's is because gratuity is automatically attached to your bill. I would recommend.

Having lived in Brasil a long time and addicted to Churrasco thought we would try it out. While its not exactly Porcoa in Rio its a good night out, the meat was perfect, quality and cooekd, the wait service is excellent and we were too full for desserts. Meat lovers enjoy and don't fill up on the salad buffet. We... More

The food and service are outstanding. Don't go without an appetite. Or, if you aren't that hungry, get the salad bar. It even has a couple of hot dishes that contain meat or fish, but costs about half. The little hot rolls that contain melted cheese are so amazing.

You may want to skip breakfast and lunch to eat here. It's about $50 per person for an all you can eat experience. They start you off by bringing warm cheese bread, polenta, garlic mashed potatoes and caramelized bananas to your table (I don’t eat, saving room for the meat!). You can go and visit the salad bar, which is... More

Went on a Saturday night with reservations, we had a fantastic time. You really need to come with a "cave man" appetite, every meat is cooked perfectly, the salad bar was fantastic. All the waitstaff are excellent, we always had our drinks taken care of quickly and the plates were never on our table for long.

The service was excellent, waiters ready to serve, meat cutters, ready to cut your meat, although I had to wave my card around to get someone to come with the "House Specialty" meat. All the food was superb. The salad bar was above average, the choices were surprisingly unexpected yet, delightful. The meat was cooked to perfection. I loved the... More
