“Meat Coma”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

We decided to "staycation" in KC and my kids picked out Em Chamas for a splurge dinner. The restaurant was very busy and people were constantly packed around the salad bar...which was very close to our table of 9.

The salad bar was very nicely presented and offered several different dishes with Brazillian influence. The girls grazed here while the guys flipped their medalians and waited for the meat to arrive. The meat was slow to come at first but once the servers knew we were ready we had lots to chose from. It is hard to say what meat was my favorite...maybe the skirt steak or tenderloin medallions. No dessert was ordered as we were stuffed.

“Good Service-High Sodium/Fat Cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014

Ate here on a Saturday evening with a group of 7. The meat dishes are on skewers and brought to each table where the "gaucho" carves or slides some onto your plate if you ask. I found each of the items to be seasoned far too much w/salt. The salad bar as they call it contains lots of healthy choices if you are selective. I liked the mussels and mashed potatoes as well as the green salads. The hot sauteed veggies are swimming in oil so be cautious. The servers come around frequently and try to be accommodating. It would be cheaper and just as tasty to just have the buffet at a local Golden Corral.

“Unbelievably awesome!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014

Although this place is a little expensive to take the family there, it is out of this world delicious! We try to save it for special occasions but end up going there anyway just because it is so good. (6 times) It's best if you can find a Groupon or if you sign up on their email they will send you specials and that is the best time to go!
It would also be a perfect first date for that special someone. When the 3 of us go it's bout a $100 including the tip.
Well worth it! 10 stars for this place!

“Excellent meats and side dishes. ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

We visited with friends and family and the quality of the salad bar , the side dishes and the soup was very good. The best part was the meat skewers , for my taste some of the meat was undercooked but they were very nice about cooking it a bit more for us!

Of the meats the two type of chickens, the ham, and the 'special' are outstanding , the garlic beef and the meat with the cheese were ok, there were too many to try them all!!

They have little cheese bread that is excellent and the drink service was ok

Overall the dining experience was excellent but the price is too high even with a 'special offer' the final bill for six with two children left us with a sour taste!

“Bad Service - Customer beware”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

Terrible service. Billed $30+Tip+Tax for salad and a few slices of small meats. Kept reminding the servers to bring meats to the table. They pride themselves on having a variety of meats....No chicken was served. Very expensive for very little food. The drinks took forever to get to our tables. Poor management. They overbilled us and we politely pointed out the discrepancy to their managers, but the owner refused to refund us the difference. Case pending.
