Manager Oscar is the worst manager/person I had ever met before. Lack of professionalism and education. He needs to be more humble and learn how to work with people. He??s not even Brazilian, neither the servers. What is this? Texas de Puerto Rico?! Actually, nobody spoke Portuguese!!!
My wife is Brazilian and she said that a restaurant like this will never make it in her country.
We made reservations 3 days in advance and when we got there we have to wait for almost 2 hours. The meat was ok, a little bit too well done from the outside and raw inside. I went to the one in Miami and Lauderdale and it was great. And the place is so loud. Not a relaxing experience at all.
So I decided to take my girlfriend on a date to this place. Happens to be all you can eat.. I pounded down a ton of meat making the biggest mess. My GF said I looked like an anmial going at it, like I haven't eaten in weeks. With this place I might not eat for a few weeks and come back. Great food to even though its plentiful.
Texas De Brazil is a very different experience. Servers will walk around with skewers of meats and will slice off a piece of whatever you would like. Coupled with an extensive salad bar, there is a great deal of food to be had at this restaurant. The restaurant is rather pricey, but if you sign up online to be a member of their e-club, you will receive a coupon for buy one get one free dinners, making a trip here totally worth it.
In case you've never been to a Brazilian restaurant, get ready for a carnivorous extravaganza!
Waiters continually walk around tables with meat on long skewers One will have Angus steak, while another may have Brazilian sausage or lamb, or garlic steak, chicken or pork. You have a card with one side colored red and the other green. If you want the waiter to offer you a fresh cut of what they're serving then make sure the card is flipped green side up. Flip it to red side up if you don't want to be asked anymore. The meat is pretty good especially the fillet.
If you're not big on meats, then try the huge salad bar. Lots of fresh selections and items that are not normally found in most salad bars such as sauteed large mushrooms, fresh cheeses such as mozzarella, pastas, etc.
Great date place, but get ready to yell to be heard as it gets loud!
PROS: Very good food quality, large selection from salad bar
CONS: Very pricey, noisy, good luck finding a parking spot.
I heard about this restaurant from a client. I live near sarasota FL so I waited until my next visit to orlando. Not only did I love it but my husband does too. We've been there three times now and have a reservation for this week. Can't wait. Everything about this place is awesome, the decor, wait staff and of course the food. oh and don't forget to order a capparinna(not sure if i spelled it right, it's their signature drink) Not sure what happened when the reviewers who gave two stars, but I've never had a bad experience, u know what they say u can't please everyone, but after reading the majority of these, u can see this place is worth a try!
Pros: best food ever
Cons: not one close enough to where i live:)
We eat there a couple times a year, once for sure using my free birthday coupon from registering on the website.
The servers are all great. Bart, one of the managers came around to everyone's table to make sure things were prefect. For once we moderated a bit and did not groan about how full we were on the way home.
Whenever you leave the table, your napkin is folded on your return. Texas de Brazil is better than any rodizios I experienced in Brazil!
Pros: The meats, fried bananas, pao de queijo
Cons: Never room for dessert
MY HUSBAND, I & ANOTHER COUPLE WENT AND WE HAD THE LUNCH BUFFET....OUR SERVER ARTHUR WAS FANTASTIC ALONG WITH ALL OF THE OTHER WAITERS AND GAUCHOS SERVING THE MEAT....IT WAS A VERY RELAXING TIME AND THEY DID NOT PUSH US OUT.... THE FOOD WAS FANTASTIC THE WAY IT WAS COOKED AND THEY WERE EAGER TO ACCOMODATE US IF WE WANTED SOMETHING COOKED A DIFFERENT WAY.
ALSO THE MANAGER "OSCAR" WAS EXCELLENT TO US HE STOPPED BY TO VISIT AND ASK HOW OUR
FOOD WAS AND IF HE COULD GET ANYTHING EXTRA FOR US....HE WAS GREAT....GREAT...GREAT..
WE WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK AGAIN....THANKS AGAIN ARTHUR & OSCAR FOR MAKING OUR VISIT
Pros: BEST BUFFET IN TOWN
My huband, kids and myself went to Texas de Brazil 3 times in 2009. We live about 2 hours away, so we made a theme park + resturant trip each time. Always satisfied with the food and service. Prices are expensive, but you can sign up on their site and get coupons. Kids eat free and with the coupon, you get 1 free entre. After drinks and tips its about $100 for my family of 4 to eat here. Great bargain and DELICIOUS food. I've never delt with management and have never had any problems with reservations be 'cancelled'. Try this place out... Delicious! We will be going back in May 2010.
Pros: great food, great drinks
it was horrible. both managers, bart and oscar were not just horrible managers, but horrible people. The server ashley was terrible, my whole experience was the worst I have ever had in Orlando. They ruined my husbands birthday and I left the restaurant in tears. The server was complaining about our table to the other servers, right in earshot of us. Our bill was $550.00, and because there was 7 of us and we were a bit needy she couldnt handle it. She actually had to do a little work for the automatic 18% grat she got, but didn't deserve. I would never recommed this restaurant to anyone, ever!!
Pros: food is ok
Cons: service from the server to the manager
After having a good time with my friend, we decided to take our wives and kids to the Restaurant.
Very nice place, but try to stay away from Oscar, the "Manager". It seems that even though you call and make a reservation, according to him, that is NOT a reservation. We were a party of 10 people and decided to leave the restaurant after listening to Oscar. Right there you just lost a bill of over $400.00 and our repetitive business, so important in the restaurant industry.
We got off on the wrong foot after hearing Oscar tell our kids (7 years old and 3 years old for heavens sakes!!) to get their feet off the couch. Then, in a very unfriendly manner he told my wife that even though we called for a reservation, that was not a reservation.... ????? That was it. The way he talked to us was very improper and unpolite to say the least.
As restaurant owners that we are all I can say is: SHAME ON YOU OSCAR !!! I am pretty sure that if the owner of the Texas de Brazil franchise was in your restaurant and saw you the way you treat your customers, you would be out of the job.
Pros: Good food
Cons: Customer service
my husband presented me with some beautiful jewelry, it was my anniversary and we had a great night, for me it was perfect.
Pros: great atmosphere, lively, romantic,food kept coming and sala
Cons: was expensive, staff kinda leave u to it , but i prefer that
I don't get all the great reviews for this place. Sorry but a dining experience to me isn't being bombarded with meat cutting servers every 5 minutes, and a waitstaff that is non existent, along with a very high price to go with it. The price was not worth the mediocre food, the slabs of meat coming around, and the bad service. If you want drink refills, good luck trying to get your server to do that as well as remove extra plates, get the meat you want etc...their salad bar selection was 'ok' because it was different, and had some upscale items, but it was just not worth it. Only one soup selection and the black beans had pork in them....for 45.00 that's just not worth it. Talk about the most chaotic, annoying, noisy experience you could have. Flip the cards to get the servers to come, to do this or that...but sometimes a green flipped card didn't mean much and no one came. We had to beg for drink refills and no free refills on soft drinks, which was stupid. Unless you want 10 different types of red meat and thats an absolute necessity for you as a diner I would pass on this one. Worse, there's no take out anyway, so you nede to be super hungry to go to this place and fill up unless you want to waste your money. The chaotic nature of the entire dining experience made me just want to eat get it over with and go on....it was not relaxing at all and not something I would want to try again...
Pros: Sort of good meat, interesting salad bar selection
Cons: price, bad service, noisy, chaotic
Service, if that's possible, was actually too good. Felt like they were always on top of us or wizzing by with their large knives and skewers of meat. Definitely not a relaxed evening out, which is what I prefer.
Pros: Great Salad Bar
Cons: Very Expensive (Super Expensive Wine), Rushed, Salty
if you sign up on their website, you will receive monthly deals via email. some 50% off, some free dessert, etc.
wait staff was friendly, gauchos were quick, food selection was amazing, salad bar is great (love the salmon and au gratin potatoes!), and even more importantly, the management was superb. how often do you go to a restaurant where managers stop at every table to see how things are? managers are not afraid to bus tables. seems like teamwork is a huge role for everybody that works there.
i will definitely make return visits.
Pros: service, food, quality, selection
Cons: pricey without coupons
It was a very good dining experience. Pricey! The salad bar itself was wonderful. It had about 60 items and was the best salad bar I have ever seen. Watch out for the little red things! They're very hot peppers and not for the meek. You can get the salad bar as a meal in itself, however it is $29.95! VERY expensive for just a salad bar. The meats were wonderful. Each "gaucho" comes around with 2 skewers of meat. You can choose rare, medium or well cooked. The meats and the marinades are fantastic. You won't be bored and you can eat as much as you like. Go there really hungry, take small portons from the salad bar and go for the meats. We made a classic mistake of ordering cabernet and pinot grigio without consulting the wine list. Total bill was $150 for 2, plus tip.
Pros: Great food
Texas De Brazil was a wonderful find if you are a carnivore or a vegetarian for that matter. It was a joy to finally find a "Salad" bar that not only showcases beautiful food But is clean and has a selection of of wonderful and fresh produce. The problem I had with the salad bar is that it was called a "Salad bar"at all. To call this work of art a "Salad bar" is like calling a chapel a cathedral. As I walked around the cathedral I noticed everything from Sushi to fresh mozzarella. I I decided to go light because of the carnivore feeding frenzy I was about to embark on. I made a personal Antipasto with Fresh Mozzarella, tomato and sopresata with fresh mushrooms and Olive Oil very good along with a really nice Lobster bisque. I then sat down at my table and that's where I noticed I had the power. I noticed what looked like a small paper coaster. It was red on one side and green on the other that my friends is the "Power" If you have the green side up, you will receive MEAT and if you leave it green side up well, you will receive MORE meat. I mean Lamb Chops , Fillet of beef, Pork lion Chicken, Sirloin cooked in Sea salt and Brazilian sausage(Not my favorite). The only disappointment besides the sausage was the fact that they didn't have Chicken Livers or hearts. But that's OK I quickly forgot about that once I had a very tasty Leg of Lamb. Now I know what King Henry the VIII Must of felt like. I was king for a night except for the fact that I didn't have the chance to yell out"More Lamb please" as the king surely did because the servers were there with more tasty good skewered goodness. The one thing I do suggest. If you want to have a nice conversation with whom ever you came with. Please turn that powerful coaster to red. Because if you don't every time you go to speak you will be interrupted with a knife wielding server ready to please and may I say that's not a knock on the very good wait staff. Don't worry you can turn it back to green and I did again and again and again and again until the thought of Lamb made me....Well, I will leave that part out. Stuffed and unable to move I did what every food loving glutton would do. Ask for my check and ride off into the beautiful Orlando night.....NO!!! I order three layer chocolate cake of course and it was wonderful. Folks if you are looking for a fun night with outstanding food and a large wine list this is the place. But because of the level on noise and the constant interruption of the servers whom are just doing their job Again, not a bad thing. I would not recommend this to a couple looking for a romantic evening. All this will set you back $44.95 per person for the all you can eat style and around $30.00 for the Cathedral all you can eat master piece which has enough wonderful food for a non food glutton. Enjoy!!
Pros: Very good service
After being encouraged by our Brazilian realtor we decided to give it a try. Please be aware even though you may have reservations-be prepared to wait. The only complaint I had about the restaurant is that the incredible salad buffet was overshadowed by a lack direction or flow to enter the buffet. Consequently you may be in line for quite some time while others butt in before you. The service was impecable although I would have loved to have a separate plate for my meat (They serve you on the same salad buffet plate.) The meats were tender and you can ask to have any cut to be cooked more. Be prepared to pay above average prices AND note that the menu prices are below what is charged. This restaurant is a special place. I wouldn't recommend it for children or vegeterians. It is definitely a different experience that you'll enjoy if you are a BIG meat eater. You can ask for just the buffet if you are vegetarian. The buffet is awesome!
Pros: Meat and buffet excellent
Cons: Parking, wait, buffet traffic, rushed atmosphere
This is one of our favorite places to go. Truly a unique experience and one you will not forget any time soon. Is on the expensive end but it is worth it for a great night out!
Pros: will not leave hungry
Cons: so good you will want to go all the time
we had a waitress who tried to pick up our plates before we even finished including my caipirihna which she managed to take away before I could say anything; TYPICAL AMERICAN. this somewhat ruined the dining experience.
I agree with a previous post of having brazilians working there. americans are clueless about the art of taking your time and savouring the food. pity.
Pros: nice atmosphere, amazing salad bar
Cons: our waitress
Me and my family really enjoyed the food and the service. We had a great server name Ramon and anything you asked for he got immeditely. The plates were taken as soon as you were done that was a nice difference from regular places we eat at. It was well worth the extra money for the catering service and all the GREAT FOOD. :)
Pros: Everything!!!! :)
I can just tell that she would never be happy anywhere. Horrible review I could care less about her Princess experience. A servers worst nightmare!
I was hoping to go back to Ruth's Chris but we had out of towners visiting who were at an I-drive hotel. They wanted to stay close and asked us to meet them at Texas de Brazil. I'd never been here before but I'm sure glad I went. First thing to know, lot's of tourists as you would expect given the location. You pay one fixed price which allows you to graze at the unbelievable salad/appetizer/lot's of good stuff bar. And I do mean lot's of goodies. I made the mistake of loading up because everything looked so good. But the main course(courses, really) come out next and I was already full! The waiters march by and present various cuts of beef and chicken ( I think it was 9 different items) that are sliced right onto your plate. It's a unique experience, at least for me. The service was good albeit a bit too structured via an obvious script. But our server was pleasant and she made certain we wanted for nothing. Desserts and beverages are not included in tjhe price but dessert wasn't on our minds by the time we got to the end- there was so much food! If your with a large group this would be a fun place to go. Our little table of 4 was among the smallest tables there. The noise level is deafening and makes conversation difficult. But the good news is there is so much to eat I figured we could just talk later in the bar-lol. We had a great time. I wouldn't call this fine dining but it is upscale with great food presented in a uniquely Brazilian style. I'd definetly return.
Pros: Lot's of food! Great place for large groups
Cons: Hard to hear - very noisy inside
I VIST BRASIL ONCE A YEAR AND LOVED THE IDEA OF TEXAS DE BRASIL. BECAUSE I TOLD MY FRIENDS ABOUT IT IN BRASIL. I LIKE THE IDEA OF VISTING TEXAS DE BRASIL AND DREAMING THAT I AM IN BRASIL. BUT ONE THING MAKE ME GIVE 4 STARS NOT 5. IS TO MANY AMERICANS WORKING THE FLOOR. DONT GET ME WRONG I THINK AMERICAN GOVERMENT GIVES AWAY TO MANY JOBS TO OVERSEA. BUT IF I WANT AMERICAN FOOD SERVICE I WILL GO TO APPLEBEES. BUT IF I WANT SOMETHING SPECIAL AND THE FEELING OF A TRUE BRASILIAN FOOD . I WOULD LIKE TO SEE ONLY BRASILIAN SERVE ME. ONE BECAUSE ARE BY NATURE HAPPY AND GREAT PEOPLE .SO NO MORE AMERICANS.
Cons: TO MANY AMERICANS
i love this place. I have been going to this place since they open! its amazing! every person that comes to town i take them here! even people that don't eat meat will love the salad bar!
i love the coupons....they are truly the best.
Anyone who leaves Texas De Brazil hungry didn't want to eat! You're seated quickly to be greeted right away by a server who gets your drink order and then tells you to start eating! The salad bar is fresh and crisp with so many options! Fresh cheeses, vegetables, pasta salads, sushi, and more! Once you're done there the meat extravaganza begins! Any kind of meat you could ask for is presented to you to pick and choose! Very hip yet casual! Couldn't have asked for better food or a better experience!
As an Orlando native, I was excited to try a place I hadn't been to before. Because it is located on I-Drive, I expected it to be gimmicky, and it was. It would have been nice if the service matched the hype. We had a party of 10, and from the moment we walked in the staff was unenthused, uninformative, and impatient. The atmosphere is loud, and the server spoke so quietly that most of our party couldn't hear him. It would have helped to know how the place worked, since he knew none of us had been there before. Almost every request of the staff, such as more water and splitting the check, was responded to as if it was completely ridiculous.
The food, however, was pretty good. In fact, the meat carvers seemed to be the only ones doing their job. Beware, most of the meat is rare to medium rare. If well done is your thing, supposedly you can request it be cooked longer, but it is obvious that none of the staff will really wants to do this for you.
The bottom line is, because you end up spending $150 per couple easily, you expect to be treated a little better. Especially since this a gimmicky restaurant, not high end dining.
Pros: Okay food
Cons: Service, price
I have seen this place advertised in the airline mags and always wanted to visit. We had the chance 8/07 and we thought it was the best food we have ever had. The salad bar was awesome, the meats incredible. Next time, I'll go lighter on the salad bar but even vegetarians would be happy here! It wasn't cheap by any means but was less than I expected. No trip to a location with a Texas de Brazil will ever be passed over by us. I was just glad we were only there for 3 days or we would certainly have eaten there again on this trip! Enjoy. Free parking is right next door so just pull into the shopping center and avoid the parking charge - or take the trolley which stops across the street and picks up right in front of the restaurant (as long as you don't mind waiting for it).
Service: Prompt and efficient.
Food: The copious salad and vegetable bar should suit anyone's tastes but the skewered meats proferred by roving servers tended to be overly salty (a Brazilian tradition?). All of the meats were tender and available to any degree of doneness -- a meat-eater's paradise, as there seemed to be no limit on quantities.
Ambiance: The place is quite noisy and the tables are close together, so it may not be the best choice for a romantic dinner for two. Not many children were in evidence, and customer attire ranged from tee shirts and shorts (de riguer on International Drive) to women dressed to the nines.
Value: Slightly pricy for a light eater at $50 a head (excluding wine), but a better value for big eaters.
Extra credit: They cheerfully honored our $100 gift certificate even though it had expired six months earlier (we called in advance to check).
Bottom line: Recommended for a one-time visit, but I'll take the Outback Steakhouse (at half the price) the next time I go out for steak.
excellent food and classy also not like we got in other restaurants, the salad bar is gorgious not like traditional salads but the expert ones
Having been to several other Brazilian churrascarias, I was very excited to try this one. Texas de Brazil has some ups and some downs. On the up side most of the food was very well prepared (the filet mignon was outstanding - by far the best thing), the salad bar was quite nice, well stocked (they were very busy), the food tasty and exceptionally clean and the service was quite good (our waiter was knowledgeable and very helpful, although it seemed a bit rehersed and overly dramatic at times). On the down side: even though we had a reservation we had to wait, there are few chairs to sit in while you wait (this was a problem as one of my dining companions is handicapped), the restaurant is VERY LOUD (not condusive to conversation), the tables a bit too close together for my liking, a lot of the meats were very oversalted (I rarely complain that food is too salty), the gauchos seemed to pay a lot more attention to the larger tables leaving the smaller groups lusting after certain meats (our waiter did assist us in this and went off to find the meats we wanted to try) and lastly we felt a little rushed (as I said it was busy and I think they wanted to turn the table, but this kind of dining is a rather leisurly one, especially since you are waiting for the gauchos to bring you food). Overall, not bad but, not great.
Pros: Pretty good food
Cons: Loud and crowded doesn't add much to the dining experience
Have the caipirnhas to start! An awesome drink of sugarcane rum, sugar and lime. It'll knock your socks off, literally! Then settle down and let the servers bring you all the picana, filet, and many other meats. The salad bar has more the 70 items. An excellent restaurtant, don't let the word buffet throw you off. Enjoy!
This was an amazing experience!! The food, atmosphere, and service was wonderful. There was an extensive wine selection and the meat was the best I have ever tasted!! Without a doubt worth the money! Perfect for a special occasion.
Pros: Atmosphere, Service, and of course the food!!
Cons: Can be pricey depending on your budget. Popular restaurant, expect a wait.
Living in TX & now Orlando, I have dined at 3 Texas de Brazil locations (Dallas, Fort Worth and Orlando) and I can honestly say the service, food and ambiance is amazing at all! Concept of the restaurant does make it a little louder than average fine dining steakhouse, but it is all part of the experience. Reservations always a good idea, no matter what day it is but the food and service make it worth the wait otherwise.
First things first, this review is based on six or more experiences & the food is fabulous - quality, quantity, selection, consistency - all fantastic. Service has rated between a 6 & 10 - depending on when I've gone. So I can't say it's been stellar everytime, but not horrible either. My issues center more around the restaurant layout & management.
Point #1: It's a chain. That being said you can't expect the kind of shall we say attentiveness you might expect from a 1-off. I have been recently disappointed when attempting to book a large party into one of their walled-off rooms. The Events Coordinator is apparently the only person allowed to answer any specific questions about large(er) parties, & in my experience is perpetually with someone else. I understand being busy, however you (the customer) are expected to call back. No one will take your number even if you beg! Not very convenient & I must say after three calls, I can safely say they're out of the running.
Point#2: Reservations are absolutely a must. My suggestion, go early - consider it a late lunch. However, during peak times, holidays, tourist season, the weekend rush etc, expect those reservations to be more of a preference in a very LONG line than an actual reservation. Mind you they are known to offer free cocktails if it gets too mad.
Point#3: Practice these words -- "Excuse me?" "Pardon?" "What?" -- The restaurant is VERY loud so it doesn't rank very high on the romantic ambience scale for me
Point#4: If you're local, sign-up for their in-house marketing campaign. You'll be thankful you did -- incredible coupons & deals throughout the year
Bottom line: It's a great experience but bear in mind it's not the place you want to take your sweetie for a quiet night out.
Pros: Great unique dining experience - nice change of pace.
Cons: Noisy & inconsistent when it comes to the level of service
This may be the best restaurant in Orlando. The food is amazing, service is excellent, decor outstanding. Great for large groups. Come hungry and be sure to make reservations!
Cons: very busy, make reservations
This is such a great place to go. The food and the service was excellent - the best salad bar I have ever seen in my whole life. Expensive but its worth it. I highly recommend it.
Cons: $$$$... but It is worth !!!
Outstanding restaurant! Meat, meat and more meat maybe 14 different kinds.... Worth every dime. Decor, Ambience, Superior service. Desert and Drinks are extra. Wide variety of wines and salad bar choices. Some alien stuff on the salad bar. Try it anyway, you may like it. Make a reservation, the earlier, the better. Get there before five and park free. After five: Valet parking only or you can always park away from the restaurant and walk to save on the valet parking. Totally enjoyable for a first date or you can bring the whole family. A bit pricey for the frugal. Loved it. Will return soon!
Pros: Ambience, Food, Service
Cons: Valet Parking
Extremely edited version:
If you drive up to the front door you will find that you are trapped into paying for valet parking.
Upon entering you will find that they keep the restaurant extremely cold so a coat or sweater is suggested..)
The chairs at the tables are sized for short persons and have no cushioning so they are incredibly uncomfortable if you are of average or tall height.
The music is loud so you will not have to endure listening the conversations of surrounding tables however it will be hard to understand the waiter if he is standing across the table from you.
Once you get past these aggravations you will find the food and service to be excellent.
The salad bar is good but nothing is labeled.
Pros: All you can eat, delicious food, excellent service
Cons: uncomfortable seats, freezing inside, parking
The decor and ambiance was exceptional, refined, yet lively. Impressive display of the extensive wine selection, and one of the most extravigantly decorated restaurant environments, while still maintaining the authentic feel.
The salad bar was incredible, the selections available there were the perfect compliment to the offering of meats. The staff was knowledgeable, very personable and very appropriate in how often they checked in with us, etc. The meats here were perfectly cooked and authentic to the style of cuisine. They were also so well complimented by the items at the salad bar that it was absolutely perfect.
I would highly recommend this place in comparison with many fine establishements I have enjoyed throughout the world. It's a lot of fun, classy, and the food and staff are excellent.
Pros: Decor, Menu, Service
Cons: Slightly pricey
Our first time dining was on 1-23-05. When we parked our car, some employee was coming out of the entrance of the restaurant. As we walked towards the door, this person told us that we would have to move our car because the space that we parked in was going to be used for Valet parking. I told him that the space did not say it was reserved and it was too cold and I was not going to move my car. I thought this was extremely rude of him to approach us. It was brought to my attention that the valet parking started at 4:00. We arrived prior to that. If this had been carried any further, we would have left and not came back. We live locally and eat out often. Your food and inside service was excellent.
This person needs to learn people skills.
Pros: great service inside, great food
Cons: , valet attendent rude
If you've never eaten at a Brazilian style restaurant then let Texas de Brazil be your first. Reservations are recommended even for small parties. Ambiance is great, the decor definitely has a warm latin feel to it. Service is as good as it gets. The Super bar has over 21 items on it. It's a salad eaters dream. Over 14 different meats that come to your table all evening long. Definitely go with a appetite to eat. $42 for the all-you-can-eat is a bit pricey but there are a-la-cart items. Carrat cake was good but could have been a tad more moist. there was one issue with the computers being down to pay for dinner but overall it's definitely worth a visit.
Pros: Great Super Bar, Variety of Great Meat, Excellent Service
Cons: , Parking
Now, you can eat abundant steak like a Brazilian without the trip. The restaurant is a set-price-per-patron establishment, libations extra. There's an impressive glass-walled wine storage in the middle of the restaurant, in case a caipirinha (a brazilian drink, made with cachaca liquor) isn't for you. The meat keeps coming by until you flip your sign to "No," so try to be as hungry as possible beforehand. It isn't for the diet-conscious, nor is it for those watching their sodium intake (the meats are roasted in salt). If you fear overindulging, fill up from the salad bar, first. The price per person is about $40 (not cheap), but the service is excellent, and the atmosphere is as warm as the skewers of seasoned meat passing by. This place is a good bet for special occasions, especially if you've never been to a churrascaria before.
Pros: service, atmosphere, wine variety
