    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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!

    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.

    Só venha se você estiver muito tempo sem ter comido um rodízio decente. Não recomendo muito não, arroz sem tempero, algumas carnes mal preparadas e mal cortadas. Também nao vi nenhum brasileiro aqui.

    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.

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

    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.
