A word from Sal Grosso
Imagine hearing the horses' hooves beat across the pampas, the lowing of cattle in the background, men telling adventurous stories of the day, and the sound of wood crackling in a blazing fire. The smell of dust and wild grass permeates the evening air. Succulent meats roast over an open flame, and the smoke burns your eyes. Your mouth watering, ready to bite into a fresh slice, you sharpen your knife. A good day's work and a good meal. You'd be DINING GAUCHO STYLE! The culinary traditions of Churrasco live on, as we still slow cook our meats over an open flame. Now, however, we season the meats with SAL GROSSO (course salt) and serve them Rodizio style. Rodizio is our innovative table side service of a large variety of choice cuts of beef, lamb, pork and poultry.
-Regular Prices
Complete Rodizio (Lunch) -$21.95pp
Complete Rodizio(Dinner) -$41.95pp

Drinks are not included on regular prices, and are changed by the bottle/glass- no refills.

Sal Grosso reviews from OpenTable diners
  • I give this place a few months :-(
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 4/13/2013
    Four of us went for Sat evening dinner, well there were only 2 other couples dining while we were being seated. The food quality was very poor, you can get fresher and better cooked meats at your Waffle House not that I recommend that place either. I often entertain my clients at Brazilian / American steak houses. I am we'll aware what the food and flavors are to be expected. This place clearly is having a tough time making the overhead and they are cutting back in the food quality and offering, which will not work. If food is very good, slow service and unkept establishment are often overlooked. But here all 3 areas were down hill. They did not even have any lamb or Fillet being served on the best night of the week. Save your time & money.

    It was our first visit to Sal Grosso after having tried a few other Brazillian steak houses in Atlanta. The food was excellent. The cuts of meat were well prepared perfectly and well seasoned. The salad bar was smaller than some of the others but a good assortment. Our only complaint about the visit were the floors in the restaurant being very slippery. Women in heels were slipping and sliding all over and were warned by the staff to use caution.

    DMN27VIP
    Dined on 3/29/2013
    As always Sal Grosso's meats are great, tastier than Fogo I think. However, I must say that some friends that I brought with me were VERY disappointed in the salad bar. When I go, I mostly fill up on the meat so I had not really noticed that the items on the salad bar had been cut by about 50%. At one time they had Beef Strog., soup, marinated artichokes, tomato/mozzarella salad, heart of palm, dill pickles, sweet pickles, hummus, salmon and much more. All of these items were missing on this last visit. The salad bar was so barren that it isn't worth going if you aren't planning on getting the meats. I hope the owners go back to the "good old days".

    Dined on 3/24/2013
    While I am not a big "meat-consuming" eater, after dining here about 6 years for another special occasion, my sons became immediate fans and this has been their annual birthday dining request every year for the last 5 years. The hot and cold bar has many delectable and satisfying meal options for those who are not meat consumers. As for the service, I am sure there have been changes in management and staff over the years that we have been dining here but we are never disappointed with the food or the service. Thank you being part of our family's special occasion memories over the last 6 years!

    Restaurant was pretty good example of a Brazilian steak house but per person price exceeded sense of value for what we consumed. Place is attractive, food is good, service is fair but at $42 per person before drinks / wine, Sal Grosso does not distinguish itself enough to ask that level of per person charge.

    Nice dinner. I wish the salad bar had more options. And the reviews about the slippery floor are all true! You really have to watch yourself to make sure you don't fall. There was one lady who came very close while we were there. It's not Fogo de Chao, but affordably close. We'll probably go back and have the Executive Dinner.

    I really enjoyed the meat selection. The cuts were very tasty and cooked to perfection. I was a little disappointed in the salad bar (not a lot of options) and the side items were fine, but not warm enough. I really loved the fried Yuca though.

    Expensive! Even a very small cup of tea, where you drop your own bag in, was $3.25 before tax and tip. Find the place to be a rip-off quite honestly. I might give away this other coupon I still have (I bought 2) and cut my losses. I didn't realize what I was getting into! I spent $80 on top of the "$25 for $50" deal, and we got 2 meals, a glass of wine and a tea. And we didn't get dessert.

    We were very pleased with the food and service at Sal Grosso. We went there for our Valentine's dinner on the 15th. We enjoyed all of the food that we tried with the exception of the bottom sirloin because it was barely cooked, blood was dripping on the table cloth as they cut it. It was not edible, at least for me, I like mine cooked medium, this was rare. Other than that, everything was great, I would definitely recommend.

    I was really impressed the first time I went to this establishment. However, they have gone down hill especially with my last two visits. As I can understand that they were busy as we did go on a holiday. We did make reservations just to have a lenghty wait. I have been seated their a lot more promptly without reserving a table. They may have wanted to be a little more prepared with the quantity of food available. I just sat waiting for way to long, and I won't have brought out what they did. I was willing to wait for the final product to be just right. Dessert seemed very mediocre. Not really sure if I will return.

    Marietta is blessed to have such a fine restauant. It's menu and style of service is unique and perfect for special occasions. The whole dining experience is special from the meat served on spears to the wonderful deserts. I'm told the meats are rubbed with seasonings to bring out each variety's hidden flavors. I believe it. Their lamb chops, pork ribs and beef cuts are he best I've ever had. Their service is friendly, helpful and informative without being overbearing.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 2/7/2013
    To be fair, all of my ratings are based on eating lunch at Sal Grosso. We were one of three tables seated from 12:30 to 1:30 so the place was completely dead. It is uncomfortable to eat in an empty restaurant. The food was good, but no on par with another Brazilian Steakhouse in Atlanta. I also did not appreciate paying $2.50 for each and every coke we had at the table. Restaurants that don't have free refills on soft drinks get the axe on my "Go Back" list.

Kevin, the manager was the best he worked so hard to make sure we had the best experience. The food was very good. There was a lot more variety on the salad bar than other Brazilion steakhouses we've been too. We had a great time, it is certainly worth the price. Just make sure your party knows the cost in advance.

    This was our second trip to a Brazilian Steakhouse. I love the experience and find the food to be amazing. The service is incredible. Every person that walks past your table, quickly with just a glance, checks food and beverage. Four different people cleared dishes, refilled beverages and checked on the progress of our meal. They all make you feel as if they are all there to serve just you. There are 16 different types of meat. I recommend the House Special Beef and the Swordfish. The only negative was that the salad bar has fewer choices than other Brazilian Steak house we had been to. There were no cheeses and a very limited bread selection.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    Food was good with a pretty good variety of meats (meat flavor is better than Fogo de Chao but not consistent in quality of cooking). Biggest issue was disorganization amongst the wait staff. It seemed like an issue that was broad at the restaurant from management down because there was not consistency in service and some wait staff seemed to be a bit lost or lackadaisacal. The other thing management needs to consider is that clients at the restaurant will speak English and Portuguese, therefore hiring should consider finding staff that can speak both as some other Brazilian steakhouses do consistently to avoid awkward communication moments for the wait stuff and the client about what meat is being presented to eat. Good ambience.

    We have been going here for over 10 years. It use to be great, not so much now. Salad bar is lame and the meats are sliding. The service was the biggest let down. Asked for a table by the window and got a table in the middle of the biggest room between two very large parties. By the way, lots of tables by the windows were vacant the whole time we where there. No palm hearts, no artichokes, no bread, no lots of stuff at the salad bar. Gouchos are not carving the meat properly and show a total lack of training and experience. This is about the 4th time we have eaten there in the last four months and each time the experience has been less than the last time. Guess we will have to make the trip into Buckhead from now on.

    Sal Grosso's has lost its mojo. Cheaper cuts of meat now predominate. Lamb was non-existant. My favorite dessert was the flan but that appears to be off the menu. You are better off getting a good piece of steak at Stoney River and enjoying the more leisurely dinner atmosphere.
