Maminha* ^
This Tri-tip sirloin steak is unique to Rodizio Grill, the Brazilian steakhouse. This steak is a moderate marbled-to-lean cut, which makes it a very flavorful steak. It's our Founder's favorite! This cut is best if consumed medium to medium rare
Miolo da Paleta* ^
This beef center cut is unique to Rodizio Grill. It is tender, very lean and is mild in flavor. We season lightly, as it brings out the flavor of this meat
Picanha* ^
This top sirloin (beef top sirloin cap, sirloin cap, sirloin culotte) is our signature cut, specially trimmed and prepared to assure final product perfection
Bife Com Alho* ^
Bife com Alho is a tender cut of beef basted with our traditional house garlic rub. Our Rodizio gauchos baste the beef with a special garlic butter recipe that infuses garlic flavor into the beef. When you bite into Bife com Alho, you can taste a delicate, not overwhelming, garlic flavor
Chef's Special^
Several meats and other local selections are served as Rodizio Grill Chef's Special items Please contact your local Rodizio Grill for current Chef's Specials
Frango Com Bacon* ^
Frango com Bacon, chicken wrapped in bacon, is a Rodizio Grill guest and staff favorite. Tender, juicy chicken breast is wrapped in savory bacon and grilled to perfection
Sobre Coxa* ^
Sobre Coxa is Rodizio Grill's marinated chicken. Boneless chicken thigh, marinated overnight in our "Vinha d'alho", Rodizio Grill's signature garlic wine sauce, then grilled to perfection
Frango Agri-Doce* ^
Rodizio Grill puts a spin on the traditional churrasco with this crowd pleasing sweet and spicy chicken. Frango Agri-Doce was created in the kitchens of Rodizio Grill to attend to guests requests for a flavorful chicken option. The chicken is basted in Rodizio Grill's unique home-made gaucho sauce, then grilled to bring out the flavors
Coração de Frango Temperado* ^
Coração de Frango Temperado is one of Brazil's favorite "Churrasco" appetizers. Chicken hearts were traditionally found gracing in the first "Churrascarias" in southern Brazil. Chicken hearts, though different in texture, are very flavorful
Linguiça* ^
Linguiça a very mild and flavorful Brazilian sausage. With a special MSG free Rodizio Grill recipe, this sausage is great right off the grill or as part of our Feijoada, our traditional Brazilian black bean stew found in the hot dishes section of our gourmet salad bar
Lombo Com Queijo* ^
Lombo com Queijo is tender pork loin cubed and grilled with Parmesan cheese and bacon! Our Lombo com Quiejo has a robust flavor, is very tender and is served with a wedge of lime to enhance this great mixture of flavors
Presunto* ^
Rodizio Grill's Presunto is one of our signature grilled items. A lean cut of ham that is trimmed and grilled flawlessly to perfection then basted in our signature raw sugar glaze. Presunto is best accompanied with a piece of our signature grilled glazed pineapple, but it's also good by itself
This boneless leg of lamb is lightly seasoned and grilled to perfection to make it a tender and flavorful cut of meat. Be sure to try this cut with our home made chimichurri sauce, available as a dressing at the salad bar
Fish / Seafood^
Our fish and seafood selection varies from market to market based on what is available and in season. Each fish and seafood selection is trimmed and marinated in a simple sauce that accentuates the flavor of this lean meat
Abacaxí* ^
Fresh glazed and grilled pineapple - a guest favorite!
Our gourmet salad bar includes over 30 award-winning salads all made fresh from scratch daily. Enjoy a variety of signature salads, fresh fruits & vegetables, variety of cheeses & cured meats and more

Assado* ^
Assado is a favorite in Brazil, and first came about from Brazil's rich Portuguese heritage. Assado "Carne de Panela" or Brazilian-style braised beef takes two days to prepare and over 6 hours of cooking time to reach perfection
Arroz Branco
Brazilian white rice
Traditional Brazilian black bean stew, eaten with rice & farofa. A Brazilian favorite

Great food but come hungry to get the best value for the money. The Picanha steak is definitely the best of all the meat choices so make sure to save room. The pineapple is delicious as well.
