It is like a Brazilian churascaria but nowhere near as polished as they deliver. It can be a decent place to go but it is loud and the quality isn't quite there.

After a day of driving we found ourselves eating here for supper. The salad bar was wonderful and full of great options, including soup. The meat was served frequently and the quality was good. I suggest the flavored lemonade as a beverage.

The food is outstanding. The salad bar is huge and the service is fast. The floor always seems to be sticky for some reason.

For a date night, this is an excellent choice. Love the ambience, and the servers are all friendly and attentive. They give you a little bob to place on your table. Green means the servers will come to your table with their skewers of meats,...More

We come here often when with a group. The price is lower than Texas de Brazil but the salad bar is smaller and the meat selections are fewer. The kids and adults live the bottomless lemonades. They really are delicious. Tip: get the house sirloin....More
