1st time there. Unique on how they serve, bringing skewers of meat and carving at the table. Includes 5-6 selections of Beef, a couple pork, Chicken, Turkey. Also have several other selections of Seafood, Vegetables. The grilled Pineapple is OUTSTANDING. Salad bar is fairly large with a large selection which included shrimp. Restaurant has a nice atmosphere, servers will keep... More

After a day of driving we found ourselves eating here for supper. The salad bar was wonderful and full of great options, including soup. The meat was served frequently and the quality was good. I suggest the flavored lemonade as a beverage.

People are nice, but hard to find when you want something. The fare is mainly dead animals. They travel from table to table knocking chunks of animal off skewers. The roasted pinaple is interesting and so is the pasta and salad bar but not for the price.

The food is outstanding. The salad bar is huge and the service is fast. The floor always seems to be sticky for some reason.

Tried to go for dinner by asking for reservations at 7. Was told first available was 8. No problem except when we arrived we were told it would be a 15-20 min wait and our names were added to the masses. If you are not going to honor a reservation then don't take them. Went down the street to Salsas... More

I could only find two maybe three of the meats that were brought to our table tasty. They bring a skewer of meat to the table and cut off two bites and move on to the next table. The salad bar was great bit not for the almost thirty dollars per person it cost to eat here ($23 plus drinks... More

For a date night, this is an excellent choice. Love the ambience, and the servers are all friendly and attentive. They give you a little bob to place on your table. Green means the servers will come to your table with their skewers of meats, and they cut pieces or slide pieces off onto your plate. Turn the bob over... More

We come here often when with a group. The price is lower than Texas de Brazil but the salad bar is smaller and the meat selections are fewer. The kids and adults live the bottomless lemonades. They really are delicious. Tip: get the house sirloin. Tip 2: the lemonde rocks. Hope this helps your decision
