Fodor's Review

This sprawling, boisterous shrine to meat, with its all-you-can-eat prix-fixe menu, is best experienced with a group of ravenous friends. A caipirinha, featuring cachaça sugarcane liquor, sugar, and lime, will kick things off nicely. Follow up with a trip to the fabulous salad bar, piled with vegetables, meats, and cheeses—but remember, there's about to be a parade of all manner of grilled meats and poultry, from pork ribs to chicken hearts, delivered to the

table on long skewers. Everyone at the table gets a coaster-sized disc that's red on one side and green on the other: turn the green side up when you're ready for more; pace yourself so you can try all the different delicacies. It's definitely a fun evening, but make sure to come hungry.

Brazilian Elegance

Fantastic Brazilian steakhouse. It's expensive but definitely worth it. You can sample many different types of quality meat. In addition, the salad bar is terrific. Great cocktails too!

Meat Lovers this is Bliss!!

Great food and an awsowme selection. Thier are over ten types of meat; my personal favorite was the the pork ribs. The Show of meat is quite awsome. The Brazilian beer was also quite good and only at $4.50 a bottle; the restaruant is not raping your for your alcohol. Iy you make it in before 3:30 you can save $12 a person and still the get the great show of meat. The salad bar will be just slightly different.

Drinks are so Expensive that when you get the bill you think you are going to drown

We went to Churrascaria before a show on a Sunday afternoon and it cost us about $70 per person! All the reviewers list it as a "reasonably or middle of the road" priced restaurant! Quite contrary. We almost did not bring enough money. Also, the quality of the steak was not good. It was a chewy skirt steak! Don't Bother
