This was my second visit to the restaurant. The first was far below my expectation and experience in dining at this type of restaurant. I thought I would return to see if things were different. The food was much better this go around but the variety was very slow and or table had to keep asking for particular items to be brought out. It was almost as if they were trying to get rid of certain cuts of meat. LOL LOL Other than that, the experience this go around was much better.

Prepare to go into meat comatose. There are lots of great food and they bring you all you can eat beef, which is great. It was so much food that we went for lunch and I skipped dinner that night.

This was a great experience if you enjoy eating perfectly cooked red meats. The salad bar was well stocked and the meats are plentiful. I highly recommend this place.

I made reservations here for prom night; the food was very good, my servent was very nice and understanding. Y’all have good dessert options, the one I ate was some kind of cheesecake with red velvet on the bottom. It was delicious, I will definitely be coming back on any other occations.

The food was ok, but the service was terrible. All the other tables around us got a small appetizer delivered to their table upon being seated. We did not. We had to ask our waiter multiple times for the same things (drinks, ice, certain meats, etc.) and it took him over 20 minutes to get back to us with our check. Worst service I've had in a long time.

Not bad but not great. Have been to other Brazilian Steakhouses that are much more impressive. Small salad bar. The meat was ok, nothing spectacular. Think I’ll stick to traditional steakhouses when I need a meat fix.

I would equate to a poor man’s Fogo de Chao. Very similar concept. We dined on a Sunday evening. Restaurant wasn’t that crowded, so I assume staff was a little light. As a result didn’t see food come out as often as maybe it does during busier times. Meats were good. Salad bar was good. Ambiance was decent. Overall it was fine. A nice change of pace. Probably wouldn’t go back until I’ve tried some other restaurants in the area (from out of town).

We had a wonderful time at Cowboy Brazilian Steakhouse! The salad bar is outstanding, with many selections and sides. Our server,Vince, explained the process and came back often. Polite, funny and efficient. The meats were great, rare, medium and well were offered for red meat, and chicken, pork and sausages were great! We will be regulars!,

I have been to a Brazilian steakhouse before and my experience at Cowboy did not compare whatsoever. For the price, the restaurant needs to be updated. No booths that I noticed. Everything was just a table with very low sitting chairs. They brought us food even when our placards were turned on the red side. When they cut your meat off, they give you a teeny piece. Not even a good slice. Our waiter was great though.

This isn't my first time going but I loved it. Our waiter was great and so was the food. The only thing I will say is our drinks didn't really taste like what they were suppose to be. I ordered two sweet drinks and both tasted straight up like alcohol. I didn't mind it too much though because I wasn't the one paying. Lol
