“Brazilian fast food--tasty but pricey”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2012

We carnivores are used to paying for our pleasure. That's why the idea of a "bargain" steakhouse is so appealing. Remember Bonanza Sirloin Pit, Black Angus, Western Sizzlin'? Giraffas attempts to be something like that: cheap-quality, low-price alternative to Prime 112, Shula's, Morton's or Ruth's Chris. Brazilian rodizio is amazing--waiters with giant swords full of meat they carve right onto your plate. This isn't anything like that. Giraffas is a bright colored, cafeteria-style place appealing to families and folks who don't mind a bit of gristle. Two trips to this restaurant is a fair enough sample from which to draw an opinion--of Giraffas all can say is we'll be back but it's not on our to-do list. The beef is well-prepared, nicely grilled with the requisite char marks, even though the cuts are small. Ten ounces of beef is an appetizer to me, but I guess those Brazilians believe in smaller portions. The grilled chicken sandwich was very good, tender and tasty, well seasoned. The fish sandwich was cooked to my daughter's taste. All in all this place probably won't be here five years from now, so if you like this type of thing, enjoy it while it's here.

“Fast food Brazilian style”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2012

I was searching for something different and learned about this Brazilian chain's first location in South Florida. It is a very good place to enjoy a tasty burger or the Brazilian take on Stroganoff or a Brazilian steak. While there, don't forget to ask for some cheese bread, a unique Brazilian treat. The location is relaxed, clean and with plenty of parking.

“SIMPLE GOOD FOOD”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2011

A Brazilian family/fast-food chain now in Miami. Honest food ranges from burgers to typical Brazilian cuts and plates (with either beef, chicken or shrimp) . Clean looking. Seems to be well favored by those who enjoy Brazilian food.
