Description: We are an authentic Churrascaria (Brazilian Steakhouse) from Rio Grande do Sul in southern Brazil which features superior service, unrivaled cuisine and a unique dining experience.You will be pampered by our authentic Gaucho chefs who come to your tableside to carve a variety of succulent meats right off their skewers. Our featured meats have been slow-roasted over an open flame and lightly seasoned to preserve the unique taste of each tender cut.Adding to our unique dining experience, you will be treated to a sumptuous, gourmet salad and vegetable bar featuring over 30 items including imported cheeses, cured meats, fresh vegetables and more. We complement your meal with traditional Brazilian side dishes such as caramelized bananas, crispy polenta, seasoned mashed potatoes and our world-famous cheese bread (pao de queijo).No meal is complete without trying a refreshing caipirinha, something from our award-winning wine list or one of our decadent desserts

“Worth while if you want a huge meal.”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

The food is good although some of it is pretty spicy. The price is steep but it is all you can eat and there is plenty of meat. They have a full salad and dessert bar. Those are all you can eat and you serve yourself. The food is a unique taste if you are not used to Brazilian. The help is helpful and they aim to please.

“Protein Heaven”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

If you love to stuffing your face with chicken, beef, pork, lamb, sausages, etc., this is the place for you. Wow. Talk about great food and service. The gaucho chefs deliver to your table and cut and serve right in front of you. They are all pleasant, prompt and very accomodating. All you have to do is flip your card to green, or wave them down when you are ready for more. The offerings are hot, plentiful and almost overwhelming. It is difficult to pick a favorite, they were all very tasty. They also offer an incredible salad bar which includes cheeses, prosciutto, artichoke hearts, smoked salmon, salami and on and on. The atmosphere is excellent as well, open with lots of conversation and tables and people enjoying themselves. I think the dinner price is a fair price for the food and entire experience. Make sure you go there hungry, because you will leave absolutely satisfied. I would recommend a reservation for dinner.

“Mmmm, meat!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Loved everything I ate here. Delicious salad bar (hard to not fill up on that) and we were never waiting for more meat to come around.

“Make reservations!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

This place is awesome! Incredible salad bar before all the meat you can eat. The place is always packed and this visit was no exception -- wall to wall people waiting, standing room only. We walked right in with our reservation and were even seated early. Don't try to walk in here. Great wine list, fun atmosphere, excellent food.
