“Yum!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

Been here twice. Looking forward to the third visit. Meat is cooked to perfection. Lots of fresh authentic sides (don't skip them). Staff is friendly and live to share Brazilian culture. All-you-can eat price is a bargain for the quality. You'll love it!

“My 1st Brazilian Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014

so I had seen this place around town but after seeing the reviews here i decied to give this place a shot and came yesterday. Its all you can eat buffet which is 19.95 or you can weight the food per pound which is 8.50. But if you gte the roast meats its like 13 something per lbs. anyways, I has passion fruit juice, psion fruit salas, a type of cheese bread, roasted steak, roast pork wrapped in beacon, a chicken dish with a butter nut squash tastte, fried yucca, and black beans. The black bean were very ummy with a plesant twist cuz i have not had them this way. if you like rosemary then you'll like it. The roast steak was yummy, one slice was a bit too seasoned but it was overall yummy. I think I gonna bring a friend with me next time This would able be a pretty good date place too. The lady that runs the shop is super nice. Also Its a buffet but it was all SUPER FRESH. I was worried about that cuz you not how some buffet are with old food but not this place. It was all hot and yummy and waiting for my tummy!

“Gol is truly a "GOAL!"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

A very pleasant surprise. In a strip mall off of Magnolia, this unassuming eatery gives the diner a welcome alternative to TexMex or Chinese. Alini, one of the two owners was very pleasant and explained the "process" of either weighing the plate or unlimited eating. A Peruvian and a Brazilian owner, they obviously are passionate about the food. They do need a lesson on "wine pouring" i.e. tasting, who gets served first, etc. Yet, the meat was outstanding and the accompaniments were many! Do yourself a favor and support these gals and their enterprise.

“Culinary Student Approves”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

I'm a culinary student and I had the opportunity to visit Brazil, I was able to dine in different places, from food trucks, to nice fine dinning restaurants, to simple but tastefully amazing home meals with a Brazilian family, I can say that this restaurant is owned and run by true brazilians, they are very friendly and the way that the restaurant is set up is completely brazilian, amazing place, if you haven't been to brazil this is a great place to start.
Great Churrasco (Brazilian BBQ)
And great authentic desserts, especially the Brigadeiro (Brazilian Truffle)
