For all the Hype, our visit this Sunday night was very, very disappointing. For $22 there was no seafood, almost all the meat was dry and overcooked and the buffet items were luke warm with little flavor (plantain and mixed meats stew were the good...More

The entrees were all overcooked, very dry, inferior cuts of meat and poorly seasoned. The side dishes were not tasty, after 30 minutes of sitting there hungry with empty plates our waitress finally asked the meat guy to start bringing us food. Everything I ate...More

I went on a Saturday night with my family. Friday and Saturday nights they charge $4 more per person, so I was expecting this to be a "good" night to go. The place wasn't busy, but we were a little early (around 5:30 or 6)...More

This was our first time at a Brazilian BBQ. The dinner buffet was $19.95 per person but they automatically add 18% to parties of 6. I didn't like this but what can you do. I feel if they know they are getting a good tip...More
