This is a classic Brazilian rodizio in downtown san diego. The super value is at lunch time, when they have their all you can eat lunch for 20 bucks. For carnivores, it is a must visit (any Brazilian rodizio, for that matter).

The churrasco (Brazilian barbecue) is a traditional feast that has been celebrated in Brazil for centuries. It is a unique and healthy way of roasting meat over a mesquite flame that preserves tenderness and gives it a taste unmatched by any other. Guests of Rei do Gado will encounter an unlimited buffet of typical dishes and salads.
