Excellent Brazilian fare hidden in an off the beaten track kind of location. If you are a steak lover you will not be disappointed here. The meat is tender and juicy, and the place has a nice charm to it. Recommended!

I went here with a group of friends and it was alright. It was very loud and the space is very small. Lots of options to choose from. If you're a meat lover you will love this place. Nice place if you're looking for Spanish/Portuguese food.

The best Sangria we have ever had. Its the never ending pitcher of greatness. We have been going here for years, and now that our kids are over 21, we have introduced them to this place. They love it also..The best service and seafood and their steaks are cooked to perfection.,

Most at the table of 8 could not finish their churascuo misto and took it home. Some of us got rodizio, an endless parade of lean grilled meats carved to your perfection of doneness at your table. I enjoyed the rare prime rib, sirloin, rib eye, chicken wrapped in bacon and chicken hearts. Yucca, black beans, rice and chimichurra accompany... More

A friend took me there. It's in an iffy neighborhood, but apparently safe. Inside is nice. We had sangria. It was done perfectly. One of the best I had. The filet was cooked just as I asked, rare/medium rare. The quality was like Midwestern beef which doesn't come to either coast. Like butter, just melted in my mouth. This is... More

The Rodizio and red sangria are amazing! It truly is a meat lover's dream! The staff are super friendly and the atmosphere is very nice and warm. Gets busy at dinner time, so you should make reservations.

I have been to this restaurant about 10 times. I have never been disappointed. The food is always good as is the service. Ate here on a Saturday night in early July with a party of about 13. We had a reservation and we were seated immediately. The service was prompt and the food came out quickly. There is plenty... More

On Good Friday we try not to eat meat, so we decided to visit this restaurant to eat fish. We were told that they cook a delicious cod and it was true. We had a very nice affair. Be aware, por tions are huge, prices right. I come back
