It's a buffet heavy on meat. The meat can be really good but sometimes it is dry. There are many kinds of meat. If you ask for a specific meat on the menu they will bring it. There are 33 different preparations of beef, chicken, turkey, lamb, seafood and pork. There is also a salad bar with a big variety... More

To be honest it was not good but it was not terrible... It is just a big chain with low budget meats. I wouldn't go back if I was paying for it maybe if it was free. Sorry about this review but that's how it was

This is a different experience from your regular all you can eat where food is abundant but quality is so so. Come with an empty stomach and expect to be stuffed. They continuously come with different types of grilled meats on skewers and yes,you can have as much and many you like. Salad bar is very good as well and... More

The food is of good quality and they move about frequently with differing cuts of meat. While I do enjoy this type of restaurant I do prefer other places in Tijuana, but it is far cheaper to eat here than it is to eat in an American Brazilian Steak House.

Very kind service and amazing food. My family and myself had a good time there. My kids loved a number of options available to them you can enjoy a very familiar environment and quiet music.

I prefer to eat Brizillian in Mexico. Unlike the US, the customers have many of the Mexican staples available like salsa. The staff is couterous and attentive. Say the word and your favorite meats are making another pass at your table. Don't come here unless you are hungry. Lots of great meat selections.

One of best buffets I've been to, it's a meat, chicken, pork, salad paradise. The waiters walk the dining room with skewers of beef, chicken, pork, lamb, sausage, pineapple and it's all you can eat.

Went there by myself, speaking little to no Spanish. Staff was very gracious and patient with my lack of communication ability. The salad bar was outstanding, but I should have skipped it. The meat was the star of the show! Many items were very good, but the special of the house was out of this world good! Highly recommended!

Great tasting all you can eat brazilian style steakhouse. I have been to both Rei de Gado and Fogo de Chao in San Diego and I like this place better plus its much cheaper. If you go weeknights (mon-thur) after 7:30 it's even cheaper. The best meats are the picaña and the arrachera which dont come around too often so... More
