Description: Chima Steakhouse named after chimarrao, a traditional drink of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, that symbolizes hospitality and friendship-certainly lives up to its name. Legend has it, in South Brazil traditional gauchos (cowboys) would consume a diet that consisted almost entirely of beef. The meat was seasoned, placed on skewers, and slow cooked over a wood burning flame. Historically, gauchos were known for their generosity and hospitality.

Delicious meal. The salad bar had a over 25 items to select from. I especially enjoyed the seafood salad, the quinoa, the Arabian salad, and the farina, to name a few. The meat choices were endless and very tasty. Thumbs up to the succulent short ribs, the steak was also on the point. I enjoyed the comfortable seat spacing, the friendly and attentive waiters, the constant servings of the different meats and the lovely ambiance.

Was here for business and did not see how much the meal was but really enjoyed it. The short ribs were fantastic. You have a buffet of sides and then they bring the meat around and you can tell them yes or no to what you feel like eating. The start by bringing out the cheaper cuts and work their way up to the more expensive ones so pace yourself and try a little bit of everything. I really enjoyed the rice and beans along with the different salads and side dishes. Everything was really good but as I said the short ribs were fantastic and melted in your mouth.

So much fun. Our first time doing Brazilian BBQ, I think next time I'll do less salads, but everything was so delicious it was hard to not try everything at least once. Service was great and you never waited to be served when you flipped your disk to red. Loved it, would go back again any time.

Went here for a family gathering under someone else's recommendation. Was expecting it to be a typical Brazilian steakhouse with average quality of food. Very nice decor, delicious food - fabulous big salad bar & endless delicious food that kept being brought out to our party until we were full! Delicious desserts too! Service was great too & I would highly recommend this restaurant!
