You might want to stick with the more traditional American food that's on the menu, but since you're at anbrazilian restaurant, try something different. Very good.

I ordered the Moqueca with mixed seafood. My husband got the Churrasco with sausage, chicken and steak. Both were amazing. If you like spice, ask for the house hot sauce which has good heat and tremendous flavor. Friendly family and fairly priced. I will be coming here again!

My husband and I love our Brazilian meals (see other reviews about Fogo de Chao) but when we are not looking to drive downtown, this is a VERY comparable alternative. I love that they are pegged at the Hopkins pricing, rather than going the overpriced route. For this reason, I will always say that the value is here. The food... More

Some coworkers at my wife's place of business recommended Samba so I went along for the ride. I ordered Churrasco expecting skewers of meat and chicken. What I got for $19 was a very dry piece of grilled chicken breast, a not so pleasant tasting sausage about the size of a breakfast sausage, a scoop of white rice and a... More

We tried different dishes, pictured below. The food is distinctive, prices moderate and service very good, especially give that one person was serving... More

Ladies night out started at this restaurant. None of us have dine here before and we were excited to try it out. Everyone LOVED their meals and our Sangrias! The Sangria was amazing and had many large chunks of fruit. Five out of six of us ordered the Paella and lived every bite. The waiter was very friendly and offered... More
