A word from Rei do Gado Brazilian Steakhouse
The churrasco (Brazilian barbecue) is a traditional feast that has been celebrated in Brazil for centuries. It is a unique and healthy way of roasting meat over a mesquite flame that preserves tenderness and gives it a taste unmatched by any other. Guests of Rei do Gado will encounter an unlimited buffet of typical dishes and salads.Continued

  • "We had lunch with Premium option and had a wonderful variety. Salad bar selection was good, meat was frequently offered but the fillet mignon was overcooked on second round, RDG will need to improve this. Overall is worth the money."

  • "This Brazilian lunch had a little twist compared to a traditional one. The endless meat allows you to get belly full and feel the need to walk it off after . Their meat was very tender and delicious. Also make sure you try their little red peppers from the side bar; they're hot but give you that spicy taste you want .Overall it was a great experience and would recommend anyone who is looking for something different ."

  • "I've been wanting to dine here for a long time and found the perfect occasion, our 10th anniversary. My wife loved it. I was enamored with the salad bar and then absolutely fell in love with the selection of meat. The flavor of the meat was excellent. The filet mignon wrapped in bacon was one of our favorites. The hanger steak was great too. The price point was spot on too. We thoroughly enjoyed it."

  • "I wasn't sure what to expect from this experience but my husband, a very picky eater, recommended we go. So I knew I was in for a good time, at least. And it was all that and more! My only tip is: arrive hungry. Have a light, early lunch the day you are having dinner at Rei Do Gado. You don't want to have to turn down any of the various barbecued-meat offerings. We had chicken, pork, lamb, and about six different cuts of beef. They were all tender and had a smoky undertone that enhanced the flavor. And the side-dish bar was also pretty amazing. My fellow carnivores and I appreciate the occasional chance to indulge without guilt!"
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Excellent--excellent--excellent! Words cannot express how wonderful the food, service and atmosphere are! Come one, come all, you won't be disappointed!"

  • "Until we arrived to the restaurant and being asked if we wanted just lunch or lunch plus TV, we realized what an amazing lunch it would be. Having Brazilian food while watching the first match of the Brazil FIFA. What a choice. the foot, wine and the game gave us a really good time."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "I was really excited to dine here. Service was slow and at times inattentive. Overpriced father quality of food. We asked 4 times for a particular meat before it was finally served."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Great restaurant for a group of meat lovers, especially if you come hungry. Extensive, foodie-quality salad bar, and numerous sides, including cracked crab and shrimp all you can eat. The main course is a series of skewers of different cuts of meat that is brought to your table and served directly. You can accept or decline any offering, or ask for more of one that you particularly liked. The beef rib steak and skirt steak were our favorites, and the grilled pineapple was to die for. The price for the dinner/salad bar is fixed, so the best value if you're hungry. Not a restaurant for light eaters! We had a special occasion family get together, and it was the perfect choice!"

  • "Rei do Gado was my first introduction to Brazilian steakhouses. I've dined at Fogo de Chao (San Diego CA and Gaucho's (Livonia MI) since then, but Rei do Gado feels more like home. Each of the steakhouses does one or two particular cuts of meat, better than the other 2. Rei do Gado does not overly spice their meat and let's the meat true flavor come out. Best looking hostesses and bartenders by far work at Rei do Gado, bordering on distracting. Tables are closer together than Fogo or Gaucho's but easy to get around. The side/salad bar was best at Rei do Gado. I look forward to returning there one day. "

  • "I had my birthday dinner at Rei Do Gado, food and customer service were totally amazing, and they even gave me a surprise birthday cake. the quality of food was outstanding, all waiters/ waitresses were very friendly, live piano was really great for romantic atmosphere. I had really good time for my birthday dinner more than I expected. I will definitely come back. "
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Went here with my girlfriend and everything was pretty decent, but that was it. Just decent. The meat was seasoned okay on certain cuts, some were a little too salty for my taste. Some of the meats that I got were actually on the more cooked side. I'm sure they would cook it to your liking, but I did not ask, so I can't blame them there. Overall, it's a good place to go to if you like meat and you like to eat a lot of different cuts and types of meat in one seating. Other than that, if you prefer a specific type of meat, there are plenty of other places that can cook it better."
