The place to go if you need to eat some excellent meat. Great picanha, superb churrasco, and the best guasacaca outside of Venezuela. Even the salad bar stands on its own as great. Ask for the roasted pineapple...

Here for a fixed fee, you shall be fed without any mercy. Large buffet to choose, and then plenty of "spetos a rodizio" which is the brazilian way of eating grilled products.

I was invited for dinner during a business meeting. I was worried because I do not eat meat and this is the place where you want to go if you eat meat. And to my surprise, they had an incredible salad bar. It was fresh. clean, filled with options, and delicious. I was full. To top off the wonderful meal,... More

Knowing about the hype of Brazilian steakhouses, price wise it's very affordable. Salad bar serves fresh veggies and a great place to seat and relax since servers are always changing plates and meat carvers bringing different kinds of meat at your pace, just turn meat cards side up for when you want to be served and down when you need...

We live nearby and eat there about once a month. The entire salad bar is much more authentically Brazilian than any other rodizio restaurant we've been to in the U.S. They bring around all the usual cuts of steak, chicken and pork, and also have chicken hearts and lamb chops. But the feijoada(the brazilian beans) is by far the best... More

Third visit there. It's a bit less expensive than Texas de Brazil, Chimas and Fogo do Chāo, and the difference is in 3 points: Buffet a bit smaller, less choices, but I don't need those sushi and sashimi in the other places, for Japanese I have other destinations. Second, the setting is less lush, and briter which I personally prefer.... More

Unfortunately they only had two types of beef. Top sirloin and filets. They were fine, but im used to a greater selection at most churiscarra's. The pork sausage was very dry and the chicken was Ok at best. Honestly, i should have gone to Outback nearby.
