this is a Brazilian steakhouse with essentially two ways to eat-only the salad bar or with meat-all you can eat. Prices not too bad. Had just the salads-limited in quantity, taste often pretty bland, and hot dishes of veggies overcooked. Service lackadaisical.

The servers were friendly and engaging. The food was inconsistent. Some of the meat brought to the table were tasty and some were frankly overcooked and dry.

A Saturday night dinner with friends - and an experience we will return. The menu allows for two choices - $36 for all you can eat including more than 11 different kinds of meats in an ever returning parade of darling people with skewers recently grilled - tender and delicious. For $24 you have all you can eat with the... More

We had lunch at Cleo's and enjoyed it very much. The price for the lunch buffet is 16.99 and if you'd like to add sirloin to your lunch you add 5.00. We felt no need to add the sirloin when there was plenty of chicken, beef and seafood in the buffet. Very fresh foods and delicious flavors. For the Bay... More

When we showed up, after using a smart phone that we asked for the location of nearby steak houses, the joint was empty at 6:15 PM. That sets off warning bells for the experienced travelling gourmand. However, we were tired and hungry and went on in for a table. I'd forgotten how Brazilians do beef until I was seated with...

Large selection of delicious items at the buffet. Steaks and other meats of outstanding quality are cut for you at the table. Interesting exotic cocktails. Ask for Splenda instead of sugar for the drinks if you want to low with carbohydrates. Somewhat pricy but the price is justified for what you get.

We were given menus, and we asked if we can just eat at the buffett, employee says yes. Boy was it really expensive! Didn't order drinks,... More

We brought my Brazilian mother in law for dinner here. Most waiters (if not all) were Brazilian so that made her happy to finally speak Portuguese to other people. She thought all the meat offerings were truly authentic churrasco and the buffet dishes well cooked and presented. The deserts were also very good and authentic (try the passion fruit mousse)!...

The prices have risen at this "new" location from over 1 year ago, but i think i will still go for now. It's cheaper than a competitors prices, which is why i will go here 9 times out of 10 vs. the other place, but I hope they stop raising it! They could offer a few more meat varieties for... More
