    All-you-can-eat Brazilian churrascaria for ~$50. Try every steak they bring you, try the chicken hearts (once, and never again), and demand they bring out some grilled pineapple.

    Ordering Rodizio is a must to sample all different types of meats straight from their churrasco grill. Or go with the side bar for a variety of salads and cheeses if you're not looking to eat meat.

    Great for large parties and corporate gatherings. Cocktails are a bit expensive given the venue, but the food is great. Wait for the bacon wrapped steak and chicken hearts.

    Go there with a group: the all-you|can-eat-meat-on-a-skewer makes it perfect for a bigger group (or someone that is really really hungry)

    One of my favorite places. Don't even look at the menu, just get the endless meat! Recommend to go out of your comfort zone and try new things.

    If it's your first time definitely do all you can eat meat, but the plated entrées are great if you don't feel like eating a crazy amount of food.

    This is one place you got to try. Go during happy hour, pay half the price and try the mixed grilled meats with a caipirinha.

    OK, very simple: picanha is by far the best cut of a beef (aka rump cover) - you can try different cuts but please, leave plenty of room for picanha. Enjoy! This is the best Churrascaria of the Bay!

    The fish is delicious but just get the meat ... you will regret and be jealous of anyone who gets the meat. Speaking from experience!

    Meeh. Service was terrible. Food was inconsistent and not properly seasoned (or cooked for that matter). I won't go back. If I'm in the market for Brazilian, I'll go to Espetus Churrascaria!

    If you are a meat lover, you will love this Brazilian 'all you can eat' restaurant. Avoid Sundays, as there is no Jazz music.
