What a wonderful meal we had last night. I had the pick 2 (pork and sausage)with collard greens, beans and fried yuca. Everything was perfectly cooked and delightfully seasoned. And the friendly service topped off an amazing meal. We will be back.

We had reservations and were seated. Other than a table of 4 drinking beer there was no one else seated. we waited 15 minutes before we received menus from the owner. He went back to continue his chatting with the other table. 20 minutes later he came to take our orders. Never offered water had to call him back to ask for it. It took almost a halfhour for our order yo come up. The lobster soup was awful. There were 5 of us and all disappointed in service quality and of food. Prices are outrageous. Will never go there again..

One waiter served all eight tables full of guests at this family business. The food was authentic, tasty, and filling.

This is a small family owned establishment. Its very casual but don't let that stop you. The service was excellent, the food was amazing. Make sure to try the Sangria as well! We will be back!

We reserved at able for 4 + toddler early on a weekday in December to celebrate our son's birthday. We turned out to be the only patrons for most of our dinner. The upside is that we had the full attention of the owner/waiter, who really identified with the toddler (grandson) and went above-and-beyond to accommodate rapid delivery of the mom's meal when said toddler decided to "crash" after missing his afternoon nap.

Oh well. Sometimes things work out and sometimes they don't. Mom and tot left for home while we enjoyed a panoply of dishes with son all to ourselves (unusual anymore!).

Now, I'd love a few more selections than the typical SoAmer cervezas. I did order a glass of house wine, knowing full-well that it wouldn't really satisfy but it at least satisfactorily accompanied my beef dish.

Lots of leftovers to serve as the core of future lunches!

Note that Samba isn't a "Fogo da Chao" alternative. The focus here is on authentic Brazilian/SoAmer dishes and not on upscale churrascaria presenting unlimited meat directly off-the-bone. Nice option for downtown Hopkins.
