This restaurant was a great spot for a dinner date. We were very impressed by such a diverse menu, and had a difficult time selecting an entree from the huge selection. Everything looked good!

I had a group of people in town from across the country. They couldn't stop talking about how wonderful their dinner was at Carlos. The staff was very professional and did a great job. Thanks for the perfect dinner.

Situated on a hill that overlooks the Tanglewood Mall, this Brazilian restaurant offers delicious fare served with attentive wait staff. Their house dressing on salads is exceptional and many menu items are outstanding. A nice place to take a spouse or date.
