I'd never been to a Brazilian Steakhouse, but had seen one on the Travel Channel. So, when we passed by the sign that said it was half-off that night, we had to try it. We're hooked! The best cuts of everything from beef to lamb to pork to chicken. The servers were fantastic, always prompt to re-fill your plate...and the salad bar was amazing. The owner even came by the table to make sure everybody was happy! LOVED IT!

“Not worth the price!”

Whie the food was good, no where near worth the price paid. $36 per adult is just outrageous.

“This is my happy place.....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2012

My mouth still waters thinking about the pleasurable dining experiences I have had at this wonderful restaraunt.

For years when I came to Myrtle Beach, it was always about the all-you-can-eat seafood extravaganzas along restaraunt row. While those places still are dear to my heart/stomach, this restaraunt has firmly taken over the top spot among my favorite place to dine in Myrtle Beach!

If you love meat, this is definitely the place to go. The restaraunt is a churrascaria, a Brazilian steakhouse. You basically signal to the roaming mean with meat (not a professional term, but an appropriate one) via a color-coded coaster that you would like to be offered whatever wood-fired piece of meat they happen to be carrying around. You can either accept or decline their offering and graze away.

Forget the salad bar and dessert. (and that's shameful because both are great also!) You are here for MEAT. Be forewarned! You will find it hard to turn down that tantalizing slab before you even when your plate is overloaded. Thankfully, with a simple flip of the coaster you can banish temptation from your sight and save your soul from a deleriously happy death of meat overindulgence. As you are patting yourself on the back for your self-control and self-preservation, please try to ignore that deliciously grilled whole pineapple making the rounds.

When done, go back to the hotel and sleep it off until the next day. If done properly, all the body will be able to manage in the next 6 to 12 hours is proper digestion of this incredible meal. Afterwards, be sure to write about it here on Trip Advisor, using such adjectives as "meatastic" "tasterific" and "en fuego".

Also, the mojitos are made fresh at your table. Yes, they grind the mint leaves and mix the brazilian rum and sugar AT. YOUR. TABLE. You are welcome.

Greast food, selection, wait staff, it anyone leaves hungry, it's not RIOZ' fault!!!!! They have many specialty items on their buffet other restaurants just wouldn't consider..mostly due to their food cost, but RIOZ has them.....

We went here for youngest son's birthday and it was wonderful. Everyone was friendly and the food was phenomenal. They sang to my son and he was thrilled. We will definitely return!
