I am a regular custom for decades and they keep the same quality service. A nice menu with many options besides ribs.

They are famous for their ribs, but they serve all different kind of Brazilian dishes. The food is good but quite expensive for their service and the meal served.

They have a good variety beef, but also serve fish, pork and salads. Their flagship dish is beaf ribs, cooked very slowly. Food is very goo. Very good atmosphere, comfortable, but not fancy. Can be very crowded on the weekends (closes at about 3PM Sundays).

Great food. File Mignon was very well seasoned and cooked and the side dishes were plentiful. It was a bit pricey, but the food was so good and filling that I didn't mind. I sould definitely return if I'm ever in Campinas again.

Ate lunch here during my visit to Campinas September 2014. Around Sunday at 2pm, the restaurant was about 75%. A very good atmosphere, and they helped me to my seat with an English menu. I chose the ribs as others have recommended, got the serving for one person, and ordered a beer. Salad, bread came out first, plenty of veggies... More

I first ate here in 1997. I enjoyed my meal so much then that I have kept the business card every since. I was fortunate enough to return to Carro de Boi fourteen years later.

I love meat and this restaurant serves the right amount. Their fries are delicious and are served really hot and deep fried. I was we'll received and the waiter was always ready to take my order. It may be consider expensive, but I thought the price was fair due to the treatment and quality of the food.
