We had the all you can eat meat, and it was fabulous! They came around and sliced the meat at our table and their was lots of variety and it was all so tasty. The waitresses, host, cooks, etc. were all super friendly and made us feel at home. Delicious! Try it!

I ordered on the menu rather than getting the rodizio. It was a very slow night. The appetizers were pretty good. Calamari was very tender. the Brazilian hors doveres we're a good combination. The main course was the quality you would expect at Applebees or a chain. the tilapia had very little taste and seasoning. The rice was bland and vegetables a bit overcooked and cooked in too much butter. it is just not a fine dining experience. Portion sizes were fine. I look for quality and not quantity in a fine restaurant and this does not make the grade.

For the price, you won't find a place any better. Friendly service, great cocktails, and high quality meat cooked perfectly for the Rodizio de Churrasco.

Their Rodizio comes with a selection of 3 to 4 sides and the endless supply of meat you'd expect at your table. At a price of $23.95 Tuesday-Thursday and $3 more on the weekends, you've probably found the best deal you could on this dining experience.

The staff is friendly, efficient, and are extremely helpful with dietary needs. I am regretfully gluten free, so they were able to help me navigate through the meats that were marinated in beer and sides that were unacceptable for my diet.

The salad bar is small compared to other Brazilian Steakhouses. However, if you came here for the salad bar and not for the awesome selection of dead animals they're going to feed you, you need to have your head examined. For those of you that don't eat tasty dead animals, the waitress did mention that they are working on a vegetarian & gluten free menu for the future, so they just might have something for you too.

The meats are fantastic. They have a special talent for the red meats and cook them perfectly to your liking. We enjoyed various cuts and forms of pork, chicken, turkey, and beef. Different varieties include bacon, garlic, parmesan, as well as other marinades and spices. All the cuts were very tender and most, and the aroma and flavor was delightful with each serving.

There is a bar on the property and they have a solid cocktail menu. Their cocktails are very inexpensive compared to other businesses. This restaurant highlights the menu as part of the dining experience.

They make fresh desserts, so if you are good enough at "saving room" you might enjoy them. There's a slim chance that either my girlfriend or I will ever pass on more artery clogging fun to save room for a sugary delight, but I'm sure the desserts are delicious if you are in the mood.

The parking is on the street, so be sure to plug the parking meter to save the local meter maids some time and effort. If you've been spoiled by the credit card reading meters around Center Square in Easton, they only have the old fashioned meters that accept quarters in front of Batuque, so be sure to smash a piggy bank before you come. For your convenience, they can also break bills for you at the register in the restaurant to plug the meter. We were warned 2 times by employees when people reading the meters were in the area.

I took 9 people to the restaurant to celebrate a 50th birthday including 3 children. All but one of use chose the rodizio. The meats were seasoned and cooked perfectly,the salad and sides buffet had plenty to choose from and everyone enjoyed their meal. At the end of the meal the owner/chef came out to say happy birthday and talk to us for a bit. We all ordered desserts and they were all fantastic. Excellent creme brulee! We will definitely return for other special occasions.

I am a frequent to Brazilian Steakhouses. Don't listen to all the haters out there and go try it. Yes the meat is a bit salty but all Brazilian Steakhouses use some salt. This place is great. The staff and owners are care about this place. They also have a full menu so people that don't eat a lot of meat can get fish or chicken.
