I was at another Brazilian steakhouse last week in Addison, Fogo de something, this place was everything the other place was not - meat coming by all the time, great tasting with flavor!!! Will never go back to the other one, with or without a coupon. Come to this place you will not be disappointed!

The meat was great. The sides around the salad bar were bland, no seasoning. The server made me feel a rushed. Wasn't really able to enjoy my meal. The server dropped off my check fairly early. Once the check was dropped off, the server no longer cared about my needs.

There were ants on the table. The food was okay but not great for the price. The waiter left us sitting at the table for a good 15 minutes before we figured out on our own that we were supposed to help ourselves, buffet style. We purchased a $75 Groupon for this dinner and we're still charged $48 even though the only thing extra we ordered was 1 glass of wine. For that price it would be better to just go to a Ruth's Chris type steak house to get an amazing steak.

Excellent food and service at all levels. The salad bar is wonderful ... but don't fill-up too much because one needs to leave room for plenty of awesome meat

I was told this was a great place to eat at, however, the service was slow. The food options were limited and they kept offering the same meat (beef) over and over. We kept having to ask for Lamb, and they offered no sides. We also had to ask for coffee. This was not a good dining experience for my wife birthday. At this point I would not go back to this place, nor would I recommend it to any one to eat there.

The restaurant was amazing. We had a great time. We wanted something special that wasn't too expensive for our 10 year wedding anniversary , so we jumped at the chance when we seen there was a Groupon. The only down side was when we used the Groupon, we did not get 2 meals for $75. We discovered after we left, we got $75 off the bill. We were still charged for the remaining portion of the dinner. After discovering the issue, we realized we didn't have a receipt to show so we didn't go back. I like usiing Groupon, but this time it didn't pay off.

When we arrived we were seated promptly. The best thing about this place is all the wait staff has one common goal. The customer. They all work together to deliver an superior experience. The only reason on the 4 is a few cuts came out dry but overall very tasty.

Service was good but food was mediocre. There we're some ants crawling around on our table and I trapped a number of them with the bottom of my water glass. It kind of grossed me out that it happened while eating. They moved us but no mgr came by to acknowledge or apologize. Wait staff apologized but it was odd that mgmt wouldn't come by. Wait staff were great but food wasn't. Kind of disappointed overall. I will not be back.

It was my first time here and my husband and I were celebrating our anniversary .I really enjoyed my time here. The waiter was great with checking on us (refilling water , drinks etc..)
We even recieved a $25 gift card for our anniversay to come back and visit them anytime we wanted!! It reminds me of Texas de Brazil with the salad bar, and all you can eat meats. Try the pineapple it was sooooo good!!

The food is great if it makes it to your table. The only time i saw my server is when i first sat down for my drink order and when i paid. There was a lot of time when i was just sitting at the table with no food on my plate.
