I've had two occasions to dine here and two completely different experiences.
On the whole, I would say this place is a great place for the money, but avoid during peak periods if possible.
On my first visit, I came on a Tuesday evening and there were only two or three other tables seated in the entire restaurant. The server was friendly and efficient, and the gentleman cutting the meat (I believe he is a manager) was very friendly, even coming over to chat for ten minutes or so during my meal.
The meats on this occasion were well seasoned without being over/under salted, cooked to an appropriate temperature, and plentiful. The salad bar is small compared to the more expensive rodizio style churrascarias, but it is sufficient and the offerings were of good quality. My only complaint is that the pão de queijo really had no flavour.
On my second visit, I came on a Saturday evening. Despite having several servers on hand, the place was an absolute zoo. Waits in the buffet line were 10+ minutes, meats were frequently unavailable as they were having to be cooked, and what was available was often underseasoned or undercooked (chicken). Pão de queijo was very hard to come by as it woud be depleted as soon as it was put out, but when I was finally able to get some, it was again tasteless.
Service on my Saturday visit was absolutely abysmal. My server never came back by my table after bringing my initial glass of water despite frequently visiting a table less than three feet away, and my water glass was refilled only once (after having been empty for ten minutes) by a different server.
After finishing my meal, I sat for fifteen minutes before anyone asked if I'd like anything else/the check, and it was another twenty minutes before the check was ever brought.
Now that said, during these lengthy wait times, I got to chat with a number of the wonderful patrons that visit this establishment. Most of them are originally from Brazil or elsewhere in Latin America (Cuba, Colombia, Argentina to name a few). It really helps to add to the vibe of being an authentic Brazilian Carvery.
So again, I would highly recommend this place. It is not as extensive as the larger and more expensive rodizio style restaurants, but for the price ($16.95 at dinner), it is an absolute bargain! Just temper your expectations if you come during peak hours.
