This place looks totally rundown and dirty from the outside but the food is awesome! Amazing authentic Brazilian food! They have live brazilian music on the weekends too. If you love steaks and deliciously flavorful food then come here!

They only accept cash. And their ATM only deliver $100, twice ... And the drinks are not given. 3 Caipirinha jars +... More
