Description: We miss Brazil. We miss the smell of trees, and the sounds and sights of Carnaval. We miss being in a land where football is played with feet. It's difficult for us to go home though, so we did the next best thing. We brought our home to us and established Rio Steak House. Sit at one of our tables and for a few hours, let us make you forget that you didn't need wings to get here. At Rio Steak House we celebrate the best of Brazilian cuisine, specializing in Brazilian barbecue, Churrascaria. First, help yourself to a variety of offerings from our well-stocked salad bar - some say enough to be a meal of itself. As you're seated, experienced carvers will arrive with succulent skewers full of freshly roasted cuts of meats, precisely separating the best portions for your plate until you won't be able to fit another bite. Our goal was to import an authentic Brazilian experience. Come taste for yourself some of the best of what Brazil has to offer, this time you won't need a passport.

“Impressed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Usually at these types of restaurants, you pay $40 bucks a plate feels like. But this place had the atmosphere and the food was soooooooooo delicious. The staff were extra friendly. It was quite a surprise. Coming here will run you about $20 bucks a plate, but that's not bad considering the chefs bring you all the food you can eat in one sitting. From Prime Ribs, to chicken wrapped with bacon, lamb, you name it. My date was impressed and loved the place. what more can you ask for. its a nice setting. Id go again.

“Go...again and again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

I've been here numerous times. Highly recommend. LOVE the food. Fresh and delicious. The buffet is WELL worth going for alone. The assortment of fresh buffet items is wonderful and in the back corner of the room that houses the buffet, they also have a section with warm buffet items. There is Brazilian stew is to die for, rice, and a few other warm items. Ahhhh, and then there's the meat....delicious! Tender, tasty, and perfectly cooked. Bring your appetite for sure because you'll want to try everything, twice! It's that good.

Parking is convenient.

Just one thing to be watchful of. If it is the end of a coupon period...the restaurant will be VERY busy as everyone will be using their coupons before they expire and service is not at it's best.

“Something different”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Good deal - all you can eat buffet and a waiter comes around to your table and offers you various slices of meat, chicken and pork. The steak was very good, husband liked the chicken wings, and the Caesar salad was very good. Overall the buffet was mediocre for my taste, but the flan was gigantic, service friendly, and it was nice to get a taste of something out of the ordinary. Lots of food, so good deal.

“Delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

I've always wanted to try it out, but never got the chance until Friday night. What a pleasant surprise, the wait staff and bar tender were great, very friendly, and knowledgeable! The restaurant is a bit smaller than the one in Hyannis so the offerings are fewer, but the food was good. I especially liked the fillet and the chicken wings (I love wings). You could have as much as you wanted and as often as you want. I would definitely recommend this to any carnivore!

“Great Fresh Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

We went to Rio's on a Sunday an I was Leary about it after visiting a brazilian steak house in Phoenix AZ on a Sunday that served dried out salty meat. What a great surprise! Everything was super fresh and hot off the grill!! None of the meat was over seasoned or over cooked. It was perfect! They even kept refilling all hot and cold dishes at the salad bar! I know most people go for the meat but my favorites were the garlicky,butter rolls hot and fresh off the grill on the skewered cinnamon warm pineapple! Yummy! Very reasonable priced for the quality and quantity of food you get!
