    Picahna meat cut is always missing and the caipirinhas drinks are getting weak

    So much meat, it's a feeding frenzy

    Chicken hearts and top sirloin were bomb

    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.

    Joao Correia · January 3
  • Larry C.

    Go when there's a lot of people. Meat is fresh.

    Larry Chen · December 22, 2014

    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.

    Raj S. · October 9, 2014

    Ask for the Chipotle tamarind sauce, it goes well with red meet.

    Douglas Gray · September 29, 2014
  • Jeffrey G.

    So much meat don't fill up too much on the gorgeous salad bar

    I lived in Brazil for a couple years and this is as close as it comes to the real deal!

    Spencer Wise · August 7, 2014
  • Missy M.

    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.

    Missy Manoguerra · August 7, 2014
  • Angela C.

    Horrible service. Never come here because you're just getting humiliated by the waiters. They only take 10 people for happy hours and won't set up extra chairs

    Angela Chou · March 8, 2014
  • Andy A.

    Looks like happy hour has been changed to 5-6:30pm M-F. Half off lounge food and $6 cocktails

    Expensive but the meat was really good!

    Gerardo Porras · January 19, 2014
  • Angela L.

    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!

    Angela Lyles · December 4, 2013
  • Karim S.

    Great variety of meat!

    Pampas is delicious if you eat meet. Nice place to hangout for long time with wine.

    Make sure you try the bacon wrapped turkey, it's delicious!

    Free parking for 3 hrs next door public parking. No need to park in Caltrain parking.

    Fantastic food, a place not to be missed while in Palo Alto.

    Happy Hour 5-7PM with 1/2 off appetizers and cocktails/beers. Delicious food and mixed drinks here.

    Michael Tchou · March 5, 2013
  • Noah L.

    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.

    What did I just do

    Salad bar is OK, but avoid the roasted eggplant...

    Travis G · November 25, 2012

    1st time to visit Pampas with my husband and my friends. We ordered "Rodizio and side bar (unlimited)." Excellent food and service!! Great place to celebrate!! We love it!!

    Happy hour is great with nice cocktails! Try the desejo.

    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)

    Simon Carignan · October 15, 2012

    Tasty fries banana!

    Anthony Lee · August 17, 2012

    Meat! Meat! Meat!

    Anthony Lee · August 17, 2012
  • Sean F.

    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.

    Sean Fisher · August 10, 2012
  • Jessica C.

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

    Jessica Chan · July 16, 2012

    Best Brazilian BBQ in the Bay Area. Be sure to try the chicken hearts.

    ESV Limo · June 26, 2012
  • Omer Z.

    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.

    Omer Zach · June 10, 2012
  • Samrat B.

    Try getting the crust.

    Ask for Dylan at the bar!

    Stan Stefanov · September 23, 2011

    Dylan is THE BEST bartender. Grab a drink, pull up a seat, & tip big!

    Great happy hour from 5-7pm. $5 cocktails and half off of the lounge menu. Can get crowded so get there early.

    Dylan really is the best bartender. He's freaking rad and he knows the menu. Plus he invented an awesome drink!
