I had experienced Brazilian steak dining in San Paola and Argentine barbecue with a variety of beef cuts etc.... the family wanted to also experience this. Based on reviews we decided to visit Espetus vs the big name chain that's nearby in SF and SJ. We decided to do lunch.....on a weekend. The salad bar did not disappointment. A wide... More

This is definitely a place to go if you are looking for Brazilian steak. Make sure to get their sirloin. Highly recommended. Excellent ambiance, good Brazilian music playing continuously :)

Warning: When dining at Espetus Churrascaria, one word of advice: go hungry! No, go semi-starving! So much food! And so good, you'll want to try it ALL! If you're a carnivore like I am, this place is heaven. An assorted array of different meats to sample; chicken, pork, beef, and lamb. I may have left something out. This is a... More

Wow, we just had a family celebration (15 of us) at this restaurant and it was over the top. It is off the beaten path a bit and that must be why we have missed it in the pass (San Mateo location). We could not believe how great the food tasted. LOTS of selection! Make sure to pace yourself since... More

This place was recommended to me by a colleague who knows his meats and quite simply, this is the best Brazilian steak house I have ever been to. Unpretentious & simple but tasteful ambience and polite and highly knowledgable waiters & carvers. You get prime cuts carved straight onto your plater - filet mignon, tip, sirloin, ribs, chicken, chicken hearts... More

we were a group of 15, we constantly had to tell servers if they could bring us meats because for some reason they would turn around at the table before us. a few servers realized this and helped for a few rounds, but then again it stopped. we had to wait 10-15 minutes for meats to come out. the meats...

If you are hungry and love meat...this is where you want to be. The service is excellent, the meats are all excellent and the staff is very friendly. What I really loved most was I have some bad food allergies. The Maitre'D found this out and took the time to genially express concern and review every dish, side and salad... More

Came here for lunch because the queue at Dojo Ramen was incredibly long. It turned out to be a good decision. We had no reservations and yet were shown to our table within minutes. This place does get crowded so perhaps we were lucky. Then the different kinds of skewered meats start coming out. My favorite was the filet mignon... More
