Great food, great atmosphere, but.....

a group of 8 of us went to dinner here on a Sunday night. We were well treated, the server was attentive, the food was beyond reproach. 15 different meats, a huge buffet and yummy desserts as well. I judge the service on their ability to keep my glass filled and this server was spot on. My glass... read more

I hadn't had Brazilian food before and loved the lunchtime salad bar for $12.99. There was much more there than salad. Lots of imaginative sides like artichoke salad, cerviche, pasta salads and much more! I am going back for my birthday lunch! They even give you an appetizer for lunch! A roving waiter in Brazilian gauchos slices grilled pineapple from... More

A large group of friends went here on New Years Day with pleasantly surprising results. While the group would have enjoyed larger portions, it's understandable when trying to get to every table around a large room. Also, the cheesy bite bread deserves a shoutout as we all enjoyed it.

This place is a great! Stopped with extended family for lunch. Everything was great except the chicken was a bit dry(probably from skewered grilling in a vertical method). Beef and pork were sensational! Well worth the lunchtime price of around $22 a person. I'll be back for sure!

Rodizio was fine, and going into it (one of my colleagues - a true carnivore - really wanted to go there) I assumed that there would be more quantity than careful attention to quality. I think I was right. Nothing was bad, but I admit to being disappointed with the quality of both the meats and the "side bar" dishes.... More

I went here for a Christmas party. Having never been to a Brazilian Steakhouse, I was super excited. Well, Rodizio's didn't disappoint. The food was spectacular, and it kept coming, until you waved the red flag! Definitely worth checking out, although my company paid, I do know it is a little pricy.

An outstanding dinning experience. Many salads and sides to start your meal. Now the MEAL. Gauchos or servers will come to your table with every 4 to 6 minutes to offer a sample or larger cuts of meat, sausage, chicken and fish. You have a block with one side red and the other side green. Green means keep the meat,... More

I'll start off by saying this is a typical Brazilian Steakhouse dining experience. If you are unfamiliar with that, I'd suggest doing your homework. With that said, there is something for everyone here. From the extensive "salad" bar which has a whole lot more than salads, to the extensive selection of meats, you can have it all in one meal....

Self-serve gourmet salad bar with other sides has wonderful tasty assortment. Gauchos return time and time again with assortments of meats and fish. Eat to your heart's content with tabletop signal block (green = bring it on; red = stop, I'm stuffed). Groupon coupon is a good deal & includes full bottle of wine (you may take partial bottle home)... More
