Brasilia Grill

BRAZIL 🇧🇷

When visiting a rodizio, it is important to formulate a good strategy, especially when you walk in hungry and want to start eating immediately. Meat is the reason you are here, but the salad bar is often very tempting with good looking offerings. Grab a plate and peruse the bar, grab some of the essentials, and try not to scarf it all down too fast. These should be viewed as side dishes, not a main course.

That being said, the salad bar is offered on its own.

The essentials.

On weekends, the bar also includes a very good pastel selection (below), which are also very dangerous competition for the meat intake.


Fairly soon after sitting down and picking the all-you-can-eat rodizio, the staff of Brasilia Grill will start showing up with various long skewers of meat and sharp knives. These meats and sausages and various animal parts are cooked right on these skewers over the fire, so after each cut, they go back on to make sure each person's slice is done right.

If it is your first time, make sure to sample the picanha (below), often the favorite cut of Brazilians. Our server also recommended the skirt steak, which was indeed excellent. The rest of the selection includes various other cuts of beef, pork, and chicken, chicken hearts (always recommended), and sausages. Sometimes items even come wrapped in bacon. Don't take too much of any one thing so that you can try it all.


Brasilia Grill also has an attached bar in a separate area. While TVs in the dining room are showing football matches at any time of day, the bar area might be an especially good place to watch Brazil play an important one. The drinks are all available in the main dining room as well, including a few different flavored caipirinhas like the passion fruit below.


If you happen to be looking for beer brewed in the Amazonian state of Pará, they have that too:


From different visits to Brasilia, we decided that coming at busy times was much preferable, as the meats were getting a bit dried out during off hours when consumption was down. Lunch rodizio will run you $23.99, dinner is $29.99. On weekends, when busiest, all meals are $31.99 but it may be worth it for freshness. The dining room is massive and there is rarely a wait.
