“This is the end”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

My wife and I have been several times and each time we say "no more". We decided to give it another chance thinking it was something isolated or maybe we misunderstood their pricing. We have finally come to the conclusion that this is an overpriced smoke and mirrors dig. Portraying itself as a high end restaurant that is just a rip-off. The food is nothing to get excited about and neither is the décor. The wait staff seems friendly enough and is making the best of this fantasy. Save your money on this one.

“Most overpriced restaurant I've ever been to”
Reviewed 31 March 2013

The food was alright but the service was extremely slow. Had multiple people come up and ask if I was waiting for anything particular and it still took about 15 minutes just for it to come out. Brazilian steakhouses are supposed to have the food continuously circulating around, this was not the case here. Fogo de chao has similar prices but you can not even compare the two as fogo has infinitely better service and meats are far superior. The food was just alright but overall I would never go back to this dump of a Brazilian steakhouse. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY

“First and Last visit”
Reviewed 3 March 2013

Overall restaurant lack maintenance, everything seems and smell old and horrible. The meat are okay as well as the waiters but service is very poor and late. The skewers take too long to arrive on the table and is very little portions each time.

“Not worth fast food prices”
Reviewed 14 February 2013

At least 50% of the meats they served were not fully cooked. I have been to Fogo de chao a few times and they always serve medium to rare but this place was raw to rare. The salad bar was not impressive. I'm confident most items were dumped out if a bag. The ceiling is about to cave in on the dining room and looks filthy. There are some dingy looking bars that we did not visit. They have lots of specials to take advantage of but even at discounted prices this place still stinks. Avoid at all cost.

“Save your money - head further down the road to Meyer's Castle in Dyer”
Reviewed 28 November 2012

The food was just . . . meh. The "tapas bar" if that's what you want to call it, was very subpar. The bar was just okay, more of an entertaining meat market. Head a little further west on 30 to Meyer's Castle in Dyer if you want a more authentic Brazilian Steakhouse meal. It's excellent, and the atmosphere is much more spectacular than that of a converted rib joint.
