    The website menu lists 18-20 meat cuts for the buffet. We were there Saturday evening (7 PM) and were served only 8,9 meat cuts as that was all they had. Since they kept bringing the same stuff out after reheating them, the meat was overcooked and dry. Even though the website states that 18% tip will be added for party of 6 or more. Our server charged us a 20% tips on top of the bill.

    The food here was amazing! Everything was perfectly seasoned and I even enjoyed some foods that I thought I didn't like, like the chicken sausage. The roasted pork loin was probably my favorite. It was juicy and had amazing flavor. The garlic butter bread with the salsa was amazing, but make sure you don't fill up on all the food given before the meat comes out so you have enough room to try a little of everything! The servers were all very friendly and liked to joke. The only thing that I didn't like was that they were kinda pushy about making me try different foods that I didn't want to, like chicken heart, but I guess branching out isn't a bad thing. All around amazing food and great service.

    It was even better than the first time knowing what to hold off for in the meat department. Very Good. The only thing that bothered me was that even though I made reservations thru Open Table, the reservation was not listed when I got there. Wondering if I will still get credit for dining there. But we were able to be seated right away anyway.

  • Worst brazilian rodizio ever
    Rodeo
    Dined on 5/11/2014
    brazilian rodizio is characterized by servers who come to the table with knives and a skewer, on which are speared various kinds of quality cuts of assorted meats, in this steakhouse the quality of the meat was poor, even the chicken was undercooked and there where not enough servers to attend to the tables, as a result it will take 15 min or more to get each sample of the meat. Never visit again.

    Went there for a dual birthday celebration and it wasn't bad. It's good for a group of people wanting to try different foods that keep on coming. Place is a bit small for my liking and was absolutely empty which was weird for it being a Saturday night. Other than that it was good.

    Dined on 4/3/2014
    We had a wonderful and delicious time at the Brazilian Steakhouse. The food was delicious (and just kept coming!). We also ordered caipirinhas that I'm sure we'll be trying to duplicate for years to come! Our recommendation - don't fill up on the rice, beans, french fries, and potato salad they bring you because the other sides and ALL of the meat are worth it! The only down side was a couple of the bacon-wrapped items seemed a bit overdone, but other than that, the food and drink and waitstaff were perfect! We'll be going back.

    no parking. entry through the bar. a pathetic green salad comes with the rodizio. the meat is very salty and mostly over cooked. after about three rounds of meat selections servers brought the "sides", plain rice was good, the Brazilian stuffing was awful, dry and no flavor, beans were ok, probably from a can, and some sort of salsa that was like eating tomatoes in water. we were offered lots of sausage, kielbasa and chicken, but had to ask for the lamb and steak. lamb was a leg cut on the bone, very dry and overdone. overall the meat was very salty, which we had been warned about. I have been to several Brazilian steak houses and this was by far nothing close. I would not recommend this restaurant.

    HORRIBLE SERVICE! She seemed annoyed any time you asked her a question about the food/menu, did not smile or make us feel welcome. You could tell she did not want to be there. Plus she charged me for plantains that was supposed to be included in the dinner. She was the worste server I have ever experienced! Music was way too loud, could barely hear the soft spoken server. We ordered a Mudslide that was listed on their menu, the owner or manager had to come over to our table to ask us what was in a Mudslide. Really?

    Positives: friendly staff, sirloin and chicken wings were good. All you can eat meat. Negative: my husband ordered a beer and I asked for water. Waitress brought us two beers. Not a big deal since my husband could drink two. However, there was some missing from my bottle already and it was flat! They served us warm rolls which were burnt on top (probably when toasting it to warm them.) Cod cakes which tasted ok but we're mostly made of potatoes. Chicken and pork were dry. Neutral: they blasted some Latino music until some other patrons asked to have it turned off. It would have been hard to have conversation otherwise. The menu said the all you can eat dinner is only served Mon- Sat, they said it was available even though it was a Sun.

    I got the barb-b-cue. Food was fair to good, the servers very attentive. There were four sides offered but none of which i would brag about (rice, beans, potato salad, salsa and salad). the meat was good but I felt like it was a tasting menu of meat and not a meal.

    It was a quiet night but the food was excellent and the service wonderful. It is clearly a family run place and they take pride in their food. Our server kept coming with new delicious choices until we had to call a halt to digest. If you like meat this is a great place. It was a weeknight and so quiet but the quality was excellent. Will go again.

    My husband and I went on a Friday night w as it was hard to make a reservation the previous week. When we arrived, the place was very empty. As we were seated, the host took our drink order. Twenty minutes later, my husband got his drink, and I did not. The waiter asked me if I wanted anything, and I shared my drink again. At this time, he took our order as well. Another twenty minutes went by, no drink for me, and no dinner salads. The rodizio server finally noticed we had a lack a food when he cam buy to offer my husband some meat. He also reminded the waiter of my drink that finally came. Our dinner turned out to be an hour and a half meal as the service was incredibly slow and our waiter was inattentive.

    I loved the people at this place! They were super nice. But the food on the rodeo menu left more to be desired. It wasn't busy the night we went, so clearly most of the food that came out was under heat lamps. The one course of fresh meat I did get was spectacular. I want to give this place another shot. It was a nice dining experience even if the food left something to be desired.

    Brazilian Steak House Rodeo is truly a gem. Tucked away on a main road in Woburn this store front was roomy and a great find. The night I arrived was a Saturday and the had very pleasant live music. The usual grilled meats were plentiful and they had a separate menu for the fish lovers. The sides were very tasty and they kept coming. I can't wait to return. Why drive into Boston for a taste of Brazil.

    "I love the relaxed feel of this place - like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The side dishes were amazing and the lettuce salad was refreshing. Everyone loved the variety of the different types of meat and chicken. Service was off a bit they were shorthanded that night and only one person was servering all the talbes in the main dining area but he still did a great job and was friendly. I would still come back to this place.

    Arranged a surprise party here. They were so accommodating putting us in a semi private room. Traditional Brazilian music filled the air, the meat was to die for and the service was just great. They allowed me to bring in a cake and were just fantastic about letting us take our time. They also let about 10 or 12 people pay by different means which was really convenient. Great place! Why pay for overpriced "steak houses" in the city when the meat here is authentic and well served. It's a good sign when your waiter only speaks Portuguese.

    This is one of our "special event" restaurants that never fails to please. The servers bring a great assortment of churrascaria (grilled meat on swords) to the table in a never-ending stream of carnivore delights: chicken wrapped in bacon, kielbasa, lamb, steak, chicken wings, pork tenderloin, even grilled pineapple rolled in cinnamon to give a brief nod to something with fiber in it...it just keeps coming until you waddle out of there in a protein coma. The sides are great as well: grilled plantain, beans and rice. Don't miss the caipirinha for the full experience!

    A Brazilian Rodeo is known for its meats. This one fails there. The cuts have no flavor whatsoever. The only thing I liked was their bacon wrapped chicken and the kielbasa which is probably store bought. Like other reviews we never saw the ribs or lamb. The one thing I will say the coconut cake was to die for. Overall, not worth the price. I recommend you try it out only if you have a groupon.

    This place used to be awesome. Sometime in August 2012 they shutdown and changed ownership. Unfortunately it's just not what it used to be. The food quality went down a notch, though so did the prices. The service was horrendously poor. It's been a long time since I've seen service this bad. Hopefully they catch back up to their neighborhood glory.

    For Valentine's Day in 2012 my boyfriend and I went here and it was AMAZING! The food, the service, the host, the atmosphere-TOP NOTCH. I couldn't stop bragging about it. So we decided we would make it a tradition to return each Valentine's Day. It's a bit expensive so we save it for special occasions. Well-I think it's under new ownership, and it shows. Don't get me wrong, it was good still. There was a live performer playing music throughout, which was really, nice. But the servers were definitely overwhelmed. Understaffed. The food was good, but exceptionally salty. The sides were bland, and the dessert tasted like it came from Market Basket's day-old section.
