Came here few times already, but this is my first review. I love this place. Endless run of meat supply to your table as long as you show the green piece of paper on your table. Meat are flavourful. Correctly spiced. Not overly salty nor greasy. The grilled pineapple might not be the most appetizing with all the available meat... More

I had the pleasure of taking my family to Espetus to celebrate my birthday. The meats were sublime. My two boys kept getting more and more food and I never heard them say "Mmmmm" more often! If you pace yourself you can really try as many of the cuts of meat as you like. I also quite liked the salad... More

Espetus is a Brazilian steak house. The choices are as straightforward as possible: meats, with not too much variety, but as much as you want--and that is why you go there. So, no exotic meats, unless you count an occasional chicken heart as such. But a place with good service. I've been there several times, and have been satisfied each... More

Based on reviews we decided to visit Espetus vs the big name chain that's nearby in SF and SJ. We decided to do lunch.....on a weekend. The salad bar did not disappointment. A wide... More

This is definitely a place to go if you are looking for Brazilian steak. Make sure to get their sirloin. Highly recommended. Excellent ambiance, good Brazilian music playing continuously :)

Warning: When dining at Espetus Churrascaria, one word of advice: go hungry! No, go semi-starving! So much food! And so good, you'll want to try it ALL! If you're a carnivore like I am, this place is heaven. An assorted array of different meats to sample; chicken, pork, beef, and lamb. I may have left something out. This is a... More

Wow, we just had a family celebration (15 of us) at this restaurant and it was over the top. It is off the beaten path a bit and that must be why we have missed it in the pass (San Mateo location). We could not believe how great the food tasted. LOTS of selection! Make sure to pace yourself since... More

This place was recommended to me by a colleague who knows his meats and quite simply, this is the best Brazilian steak house I have ever been to. Unpretentious & simple but tasteful ambience and polite and highly knowledgable waiters & carvers. You get prime cuts carved straight onto your plater - filet mignon, tip, sirloin, ribs, chicken, chicken hearts... More
