This was my first experience at a Brazilian-style steakhouse, so keep in mind that when reading this review.
We went to Rodizio recently for lunch on a Friday. Parking turned out to be more difficult than I thought, as the pay parking lot next door shown on Google Maps no longer exists, a casualty of the construction around Union Station. Rodizio is located in the old icehouse building, and they've left plenty of brick visible in addition to the wood and more modern materials used in the restaurant. The atmosphere is upscale, and the clientele overwhelmingly male. The lunch crowd was small.
The waitress explained how the place works -- you can get "just" the very extensive salad & sides bar, or get "the full Rodizio" which includes the meats. The salad bar would have been a good meal in itself, although a number of dishes were mislabeled. It's way, way better than your average salad bar, including all sorts of sides (e.g. steamed asparagus and mashed potatoes).
As it was lunch, the selection of meats was somewhat limited (but still plenty). We had three cuts of beef plus pot roast, chicken, bacon wrapped turkey, and also grilled pineapple. Not every meat was fantastic, but all were good (we passed on the chicken hearts, and there was no seafood offered). We walked away happy and very, very full.
Overall we were pretty happy with the experience and will probably be back. There would be more choices available at dinner, but as the price nearly doubles we'll probably stick with lunch.
