Diner Reviews
  • "Being Brazilian, I always miss the "churrascaria rodízio" (all you can eat steak house) style of restaurant. Rafain (at Dallas Freeway) never disappointed me for more than eight years, and it is a great place for special occasions due to its upscale ambience. The salad and dessert bars are impeccable and the meat (served to your table straight from the fire pit) are extremely well cooked. To me the high notes are always the Picanha (a cut similar to Tri-tip, which is common in California), the flank and the rump steaks. For desserts, I usually get the Papaya cream with cassis liqueur."

  • "Rafain stands above the others with the endless meats and service. There is never a lull in the portions brought to your table. I enjoy the grilled pineapple that is not offered at some of the others. Desert is included which is nice as well. Overall I feel rafain is the best quality and value for your dining dollar."

  • "Excellent servic & excellent food w/ Free deserts @ salad bar & desert for Bdays!!! Alcohol (wine) choices are expensive, No BYOB (wine) allowed, which was a drag, Negatives: Only ONE coupon or Groupon per table & Groupons are only good for 2 people (remember Groupons prepaid!) & we had more than 2, that was no good. Especially when the restaurant charges 18% gratuity after allowing use of whatever coupon you use... I did not expect that. So we ended up paying full price & not saving much- partially our fault- also, the wait staff did not explain the situation as they agreed that the whole table would get a reasonable percent off because of my BDay celebration. That didn't happen. No big deal, it was still a great experience and food."

  • "Rafain's has never disappointed, food is great, service is amazing, and when you go at lunch the prices are reasonable. Salad and dessert bar are included in the price, you don't find that at the other places."

  • "First time at this restaurant....purchased a Groupon to try it out. I have been to several local Brazilian steak houses, in my opinion, this one is the best. We had a great evening....atmosphere is great, service excellent, and of the course the food...fantastic....can you say "meat", "Meat", and more "meat"! And unlike most Brazilian steak houses I have tried, dessert is included. We had a great time, enjoyed the meal, and left VERY satisfied."

  • "This time, my wife and I met a colleague and his wife for a Friday dinner. As always, Rafain provides excellent service and exceptional food. The varieties of food as well as the number of customizable options are always a plus. We all appreciated the servers' enthusiasm to ensure each table member had adequate servings based on individual cooking style preferences. Again, all and all...another great dinner experience."

  • "I took my wife here for her birthday and we both just loved it. It's one of those places and nights that you just don't want to end because everything was so good. Everyone needs to try this place if they get the chance. The meats were incredible. The service was beyond compare. Almost too good actually. I had to keep adjusting my sweet and low ratio in my unsweetened tea because they kept refilling it about every 8 seconds. Highly recommended!!!"

  • "Loved coming here! The service was great. We dressed up to go out, but there were other people in causal clothes. I wouldn't say this is a kid friendly place to dine, but we did see children and their parents seemed comfortable with them there. The meat selection was great and was delicious!"

  • "Not just another meat orgy, the service is attentive, salad bar fresh, plentiful and unique, and dessert was included. The ambiance was lovely, but the hostess and servers were so friendly that it wasn't intimidating. We dressed nicely, but would have been comfortable in jeans. We quickly found our favorites from the huge variety of meats offered, and if we refused a particular meat, the server asked what we were looking for, and sent that one back to us quickly. They always asked whether we wanted rare, mid-rare, etc., so we got exactly the food we wanted. They have a reduced price for kids and for people who only want the salad bar. We'll be back!"

  • "My family and I had a wonderful experience at your restaurant. My only critique if any is the fact that even when our indicators were turned to RED, we were still consistently asked if we'd like a meat choice if another party at out table had theirs on green. This made for many interruptions during my meal. This did not however diminish my great time and I would definitely return. "

  • "Even as Muslims we don't eat anything prepared with wine/alcohol or contains any pork, the waiter was keen enough to prepare for us special lamb portions without wine (as lamb and chicken were originally marinated with wine and beer) and to highlight explicitly which of the salad bar contains pork and which in the dessert bar contains alcohol. Chapeau "

  • "We have dined at multiple Brazilian Steakhouses before and Rafain is our favorite. The salad bar is not as lavishly loaded up as Fogo or Texas de Brazil, but it has all of the great mainstays that I personally like. But who are we kidding, no one cares about the salad bar. It might as well be a single bowl of lettuce for as much usage as it gets compared to the meat. And here is where Rafain excels. Their Spicy Picanha and Flank Steak are my personal favorites, but pretty much every cut I've tried has been cooked perfectly (juicy and piping hot with tons of flavor). My only complaint is that they don't come around with the lamb often enough. However, the reasonable human being inside knows that lamb takes longer to cook, so..."

  • "The food was awesome and the service was probably the best I have ever had in any restaurant in the DFW area. The filet melted in your mouth and the sirloin was extremely flavorful and tender. Every item on the salad bar was very tasty too!. "

  • "I decided to take my husband to Rafain for his birthday dinner. I am a vegetarian, despite which there were plenty of options at the salad and dessert bar ($22 only), and my husband loved the meats and salad bar ($44). "

  • "Great customer focused teamwork and fine food. Need to clearly get servers attention when they come around with offerings or lose their attention as they flit off to the next table. Manager is clearly aware and envolved with what is going on to maintain high service levels and customer satisfaction."

  • "I noted on my reservation that this was to be a belated Mother's Day celebration. Every staff mentioned Happy Mother's Day to my mom and they brought her a special desert. The entire experience was exceptional."

  • "The quality of the meat and the selection is good. The tempo from the kitchen on meat options was good. The salad bar is good too! If you are not a big meat eater the salad bar is an excellent alternative"

  • "We are Brazilian Churrasqueria's fans, and we consider this one the friendliest of all. Price is competitive, meat is great, Picannas are all over the place and they do not try to fill you up with chicken or sausages. It is more roomie than Fogo or Texas do Brazil and location is quite accesible. We celebrated Mother's day there and was a great family experience. We really enjoyed and ate so much!"
