I could only find two maybe three of the meats that were brought to our table tasty. They bring a skewer of meat to the table and cut off two bites and move on to the next table. The salad bar was great bit not for the almost thirty dollars per person it cost to eat here ($23 plus drinks... More

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.

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. Tip 2: the lemonde rocks. Hope this helps your decision

it was OK. The meat was good as much as you can eat! The salad bar was OK but try not to fill your tank on it. The dessert was the shinning star here wow it was good. Please try the mango butter cake it will not disappoint.

Outstanding food at a reasonable price for the amount and quality of food you are getting. Great that the salad bar is so well stocked. The service was excellent and the servers were all very pleasant. Could not ask for a better place to have an evening out for dinner with the family.

We were here for a birthday celebration. The food selections were plentiful. There were a few items that we really enjoyed and others not so much. The ambiance was nice as well. The price point is good too.
