“Hoped for more”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

This is the kind of restaurants that you go with great expectations...just to get dissapointed. It is supposed to be a Brazilian rodicio stile restaurant where for a set price you eat all you can. with the rodizio stile you a get a green/red card that you flip on the table to let the waiter know that you are "green" for more or not (red). In a real Brazilian restaurant with this style you would flip the card red otherwise the meat will just pile on your plate. It was not the case this time, and althout we were cautioned about fliping our cards, we never had to....because the meat came very slow. So slow in fact that i calculated that after and hour we have had just over six ounces of meat. (and that included chicken and pork chops). Yes, once the waiter show up with the meat you can ask for as much as you can....but seen a lot of people waiting we just asked for slices every time. We got tired of having to wait so much and left. I have seen many good reviews for this restaurant...and some other not so good. In my case, the experience was not the best. For 31 dollars per persons (including an iced tea) is not cheap. Looking at the reviews on this and other sites seems to me the problem is consitancy on the service. It was a saturday night where you had exptected a lot of food available.

“Great place and great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013 via mobile

This is a Brazilian meat house where you pay a set price and get as much meat along with salads and vegetables as you like. Costs about $30 for the meal plus a drink so not cheap but well worth it.

“For Meat Lovers and others”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

This is the place to go if you want a choice of succulent roasted meats in an all you can eat atmosphere. The server brings at least 8 different selections of roasted meats on long skewers that you can request as many slices as you want ! You simply place your card face up green for yes or red for no if you don't want the selection presented. There is also a well stocked salad bar for those who want to vary their diets. We were also presented with some freshly baked bread which was stuffed with cheese, very delicious !
