I love the food, the service and for the past month this special price. The menu on Sundays has been $21.95 and we have definitely enjoyed it. I lived in Brazil and this restaurant is authentic to the Churrascarias (steakhouses) in Brazil.More

Highly recommended...We got a great August, Sunday meal deal! Be really hungry when you go. Meat was tender. Parmesan crusted Pork chop and ribs was a bit dry. Sweet grilled Pineapple was our favorite! Inviting decor, very attentive staff and clean restrooms.
