went here with friends last week. first time. I have been to brazil so know authentic and the food here was definitely authentic and good quality. For the price $20/person, you really cant beat it. the picanha was my favorite cut of meat. They should improve the filet in bacon option as both times the inside was well done. The chorizo was excellent and they had feijoada (beans and pork) which was awesome. The rest of salad bar was so-so, nothing special. Would be better with higher end deli meats like prosciutto or salami. The service was also excellent - all the girls here are brazilian and beautiful so again, authentic. The main improvement this place needs is the interior. It has a ton of potential and could charge more if the inside were classier. As of now the tables looks like picnic tables and the decor is so-so. IF someone dumped 20k into the interior (replace tables and chairs and bar) it could be a real nice place (like a Fogo de Chao). then they could charge 30-40 a head and get it. My other main complaint was the caipirinha. they put sweet and sour mix in the caipirinhas. This bothered me as it should only be cachaca, sugar, lime and ice - no mixer. I'd probably go back since it is a great deal for all you can eat quality meat but would hope they look to improve interior to make classier and nicer. Definitely a good deal though if you have a family and want to take them out but not a place I would bring a first date!
