This may not be typical of Brazilian middle class food, but you'll certainly feel like the elite when dining in this restaurant. It's clean, the waiters are consistently courteous, and the banquet is classy and healthy and full of variety.

Of the three Brazilian Steakhouses in town this is the best in quality and flavor. They usually have everything featured on the menu available. The cheesepuffs are the best. The salad bar rocks with so many tempting options. Don't be a fool! You came here...More

It is not inexpensive: $40+ for all you can eat plus wine at ~$10/glass ... but it is so worth it for a special celebration or a 19 year old male teen who can easily eat his way to $40 in meat!! smile!
