For the price the quality of the food was not worth it. In our personal opinion Texas De Brazil is a much better choice

I would especially recommend trying out Rodizio Grill's brunch on Saturday. Schedule your reservation first time (11:00 a.m.) as it does fill up quickly. The brunch is simply delicious and costs a little bit less (which is good for the person wanting to give Rodizio Grill a first time try!) Brunch has your breakfast-type food; a wonderful salad bar and then a variety of meats that come to your table. I liked all of the meats but my favorite was the grilled pineapple and the fish wrapped with a red bell pepper! Everyone was very friendly.

I haven’t been to a lot of Brazilian restaurants but this was not impressive. Wasn’t worth $400 for the food and the service was mediocre.

I have been to many Brazilian Steak Houses across the US, Rodizio was mediocre. Minimal beef choice cuts offered and flavors were bland in comparison to others been to. The salad bar and sides were very good. Our server was very good however the Gauchos were rude at time and would regularly skip over us while serving the table adjacent to us. Three friends accompanied me and they were satisfied as it was their very first experience.

Amazing experience. The salad and side bar was huge. Lots og salads and sides to choose from. The beef was amazing. I usually prefer chicken to beef. Not this time. The chicken and pork were good too. We didn't try lamb...not our thing. The carvers kept it coming too. It was so yummy that we are going for lunch tomorrow and getting just the salad bar.

Overall it was a good experience. The only issue was our waitress only brought us our drinks and never any refills and received a %20 tip when all the nice gentleman that kept out plays full of food did most of the work. I only received one refill and that was from an other waitress who noticed my glass was empty. The restaurant did not seem very busy at the time, I felt like our waitress had plenty of time to come check on glasses and refill. Other then that it was great food and we will return for sure.

Saw mixed reviews, decided to try it out for Mother's day. Bad idea!! The salad and hot bars were always out of items, had to keep going back and forth to see if items available. All the meat came around rare to medium rare even after asking server and other cooks at the very beginning to make sure that our table was served medium well. I mean for 45/plate that should have been accomodated. Sat for almost 25 minutes before being served any meat, which was the main reason for coming. Experience was just okay, but definitely expected more for the price. The food was very mediocre

The place was not a friendly atmosphere. The servers was not friendly. The salad bar was not stocked well I I asked for certain items and I was told you didn’t have them.

We didn’t not know about some of the entrées until we was about to leave. (They didn’t make it to our table)

I really enjoyed myself. My biggest complaint is that I had reservations and still waited to be seated. It's understandable since it's still prom season but it was annoying. The food is always great. Our server was nice but I cant remember her name.

The food for the most part was delicious. They turned a cheap piece of fish into an amazing tasting fish. My only two problems was the filet mignon steak they turned into a piece of cardboard. How you do that to filet I do not know. It was sk dry and no seasoning whatsoever on it. My second thing we waited almost an hour for our bill. We never saw our waiter again. But overall it was a great place to eat. Very Keto friendly.

Rodizio is our favorite date night place to eat. We decided to drive two hours to eat this past Saturday for my husbands birthday and bring two friends for their first time. We have always had exceptional service but this time the food came so slow. We were there for over 2 hours and barely had ever meat offered to us as the kitchen barely made it around our section. Our waitress went to the head kitchen person and he said he would address it and it was fine for five minutes and we went back to watching everyone around us eat while we had empty plates. Very disappointed with this visit!

This was an amazing experience. Staff was amazing! Food was excellent, and boy the cocktails were amazing. It’s alittle pricey But you get your money worth! I highly recommended everyone to go and try it. It was $107 for two to eat all you can eat and two drinks. Service was great and the staff up front and coming around the table was awesome!

The idea for table sliced food is not bad, but I prefer a juicy peace of meat when I decide to go to a steak house, instead of little peaces. Saladbar looks great!
