PARKING
Parking in front of the restaurant is valet with a fee. There is free parking further away in the lot. If you go on a weekday, your best bet would be to park in front of McDonalds. If you go at night or on the weekend, there should be plenty of open parking.

PAYMENT
[VISA] [MC] [AMEX] [DISC]

POPULAR DISH
The waiters or "gauchos" here bring around large skewers of cooked meat and slices off a portion for you at your table. The best meat dish here is also their signature dish. "Picanha" or top sirloin cap, is cooked to perfection with a salty exterior and a moist juicy interior.

UNIQUE DISH
Most of the meats here are pretty standard, but they do offer chicken hearts for those looking to try something a little different.

DRINKS
A full bar with specialty brazilian cocktails is available. They also serve soft drink, coffee, tea etc.

SEATING
Large restaurant with plenty of seating. This place is popular though, so reservations are recommended.

AMBIANCE/CLIENTELE
This is an upscale brazilian steakhouse. Expect to see plenty of business people. Kids are rarely seen here.

EXTRAS/NOTES
This is a place to go when you are HUNGRY. My buddy Tim and I often starve ourselves for the entire day before going here and then compete to see who can eat the most meat. You will leave here feeling so full that you'll have to unbutton your pants. Happy hour is available in the bar from 5-7 PM Mon-Fri. Happy hour specials include small plates of meat and free appetizers.
