I really enjoyed this place.

Living in the USA I've tried both Fogo de Chao and Texas de Brazil. The quality of both can vary from location to location.

I'm believe that Barbacoa Itaim is a one off and not franchised, which is a shame.

The salad bar meets all the requirements of a salad bar in a Churrascaria. Being a 'Pro' at the meat eating challenge, I've learned to be selective at the salad bar and only select a few items that accompany the meat well.

The meat service was excellent, always warm/hot, perfectly cooked, never over seasoned and always prepared in a simple tasteful manner.

The service was also very friendly, which was appreciated when dining alone in a foreign city, where Portuguese is the primary language.

For business, pleasure, alone or as a couple, give this place a try.

very good churascaria . Excellent service. Buffet is superb. Try to eat less from the buffet as it does not leave you room to have excellent picanha

Excellent non stop Brazillian barbecue ( churrascaria rodízio ), with the best kinds of meats you can imagine. Great salad buffet with so may choises that you almost done only with it! Tip: don`t miss Bife Ancho and, go slow in the salad buffet to enjoy all the meat later.

A simple approach to dining, with great service. A very extensive buffet salad bar with a range of cold items, various green leaves, some I'm familiar with, but a number that I am not, so a particualr first. sundried-tomatoes, coleslaw and various varieties of cold meats in abundance.

This however was only a prelude to the continuing roll of vaious cooked meats that were presented to you at the table, straight off the skewers ! with about 8 different cuts of meat off the cow, to lamb, chicked and other meaty delights. They keep coming until you turn your 'table token' over (from green to red).

There is also a desert trolly, if you still have room, .... a tad more expensive than other nearby 'traditional' restuarants, but this is 'Brazilian' dining.

We enjoyed it,.... different from our expectations, but, very enjoyable.

Don't ask for a menu as I did,.... it doesnt exist !!

Enjoy !!

I had dinner in this restaurant. It has a very good selection of different types of meat, very good service but of course more expensive than the others nearby. USD$60/person for buffet meat + buffet salads + coke.
