We were pleasantly surprised to find a Brazilian restaurant close to home, with cheaper prices, but great service. This is a small version of the Fogo di Chiao or Tradicao. They don't bring the different cuts of meat to the table, you select the meat you want and the bring it, but they have a great buffet that includes salads,... More

I have eaten in several five star restaurants. This one deserves six plus. The menu varies widely from fire grilled steaks to lamb cops to salmon and you can include a spectacular salad bar which includes a Brazilian style brucheta, marinated asparagus, peppadri and assorted olives, pork loin, fried bananas, Brazilian rice, Brazilian style black beans, smoked salmon and capers...

I stopped going as much in the last year and a half...I cannot remember if it was the staff or the food. My co-worker and I noticed last month that they are now a brazilian steakhouse... More

I always get the cheese enchilada plate. The beer is cheap and ice cold during lunch and brunch hours. Good service, wait staff always nice. Nice bar with televisions. Good chips and queso.

My last visit - a late night visit, I watched a 15" rat crawling down the wall in the tortilla making room. I am horrified to think what might have been in or around my food. Not going again and hope others will read and head the warning if for nothing else but health's sake.

We have ate here many times over several years. This visit my wife had enchilada dinner and I had the fish tacos. The chicken enchilada was a show stopper. Very flavorful and juicy. The cheese enchilada was good, and the beef was OK. The fish tacos were great. Very large pieces of fish in the tacos. Fresh cabbage and pico... More

The food used to be great and we used to eat here once a week. Our waiter even ordered our food before we sat down since we never changed. Last couple of time we ate here, the fajitas were not very good.

We experienced the rudest, most argumentative hostess tonight while trying to be seated. Once there, our drink order was taken within 10 minutes. Not bad you say? Well, no one came back for our food order for 40 minutes & only after I complained. The wait for actual food took another 25 minutes. While we waited the eternal wait for... More
