My husband and I have been to several Brazilian steakhouses in several states. Some are locally owned and others are part of a chain. They've all been very good but the Rodizio Grill is the best of any we've been to. The service is tops. The staff is knowledgeable and accommodating. The salad bar is second to none. Nice Brazilian salads and at the Saturday brunch, additional offerings of breakfast items. The selection of meats is diverse but it's the preparation that makes this place so special. Chicken is moist and flavorful. The garlic steak and sausages were a hit. Our group consisted of 10 adults and all will be returning.

The food was wonderful and the service was fabulous! The staff were engaged and attentive. We celebrated by birthday and the staff came out and sang Happy Birthday to me in Portuguese! What a nice touch!

We visited yesterday evening to try out this steakhouse...let me start by saying there's no steak but a lot of fatty grizzly gamey meat that taste a bit suspect.
It is brought to your table on a skewer and sliced to your plate..its the size of a half strip of bacon and as slim as a razor blade..it taste TERRIBLE ..the chicken is so tough too and the meat balls had the consistency of ground up bone and also tasted suspect.
the salad bar was nice but that alone without the meat is 26.99 a head and its not worth 4.99 a head ..dessert IS NOT INCLUDED so that's extra with your drinks on top of the 38.99 a head price tag... the cocktails are disastrous and like melted ice cream ..all in all a great great disappointment and I would not waste my money on this place when you have so many more options around..the standard of the meat is below dreadful ...we headed to Capital grill for our desert and a couple of real cocktails to salvage our evening and it did ...dont waste your money you have been warned
