Have been here previously in June of 2018. Spendy but good is delicious. Very busy on the Saturday we were here. An hour wait but well worth the wait.

This is one of the greatest restaurants in Sioux Falls. The prices are higher but the quality of food and service are equally balancing. There is a wide variety of unique foods to try here. The atmosphere makes you feel like you are on vacation....More

First time to a Brazilian Steakhouse and we enjoyed the experience. Many different meats to try. Make sure you come hungry because it is a lot of food! Loved the soup and salad bar complete with steamed veggies, rice and potatoes.

There are 3 levels to our Gaucho meal. The difference on the 3 levels is the selection of meats. Kids 6 to 12 years old the pricing will be $11.95, $14.95, and/or $16.95.
