Braza Dancante's chefs flame-tame a wide assortment of charbroiled, grilled, and brazed meats in true Brazilian churrasco fashion. Each succulent cut of meat is then spitted on skewers and promenaded around an open, elegant dining room populated with colorful lights, chandeliers, hidden warp-zone pipes, and white tablecloths by a waiter in gaucho pants. Braza Dancante's buffet-style dining allows the meat-minded to pile plates high with top sirloin, leg of lamb, brazilian pork sausage, spicy cajun picanha, and chicken sporting a fashionable wrap of bacon. Herbivores, meanwhile, can remain carnivoyeurs by sating themselves at a salad bar bursting at the seams with 50 varieties of leafy greens, couscous, breads, and cheeses.
If you've never been to a Brazilian steakhouse before, there's one thing you should know?there will be meat, and lots of it. Brazilian Cowboy, located in downtown Plano, has no plans to break the mold. The steakhouse sends out an all-you-can-eat array of sizzling meats skewered on a sword or two-handed mace. One can't-miss menu highlight is the picanha, a spicy Brazilian cut of beef.
Endless plates of meat can be counteracted by frequent visits to the full salad bar and hot-buffet bar. Diners can also opt for just a salad- and hot-buffet-bar meal without the meats, a pertinent option for those looking to save room for desserts that include Brazilian flan and papaya ice cream.
Brazil Brasileiro’s enthusiastic staff celebrates Brazil’s culinary and cultural heritage with feasts of sizzling meat and sumptuous spreads of fresh fare. Traditional rodizio meals pepper taste buds with seven different cuts of roasted pork, chicken, and beef straight off the skewer, including the namesake rodizio, Brazil’s signature cut of steak and form of currency. Tableside servers generously carve off unlimited slices of meat garnished with seasonings of zesty pineapple and spicy cinnamon. In addition to dishing out all-you-can-eat roasted meats, Brazil Brasileiro lays out a buffet that satisfies more diverse appetites for tropical fare with a wide array of traditional Brazilian edibles. Like Pele’s brief conquest of the United States, Brazil Brasileiro aims to import an authentic atmosphere of Brazilian joie de vivre onto American shores by broadcasting South American soccer games on flat-screen TVs. Additionally, live music reverberates across the cozy, hardwood walls, and Brazilian souvenirs beckon to shoppers from the restaurant’s gift shop.
At Boi Na Braza, servers slice tender slivers of top sirloin, garlicky rump roast, beef ribs, and lamb chops straight onto your plate. Tableside carving is the core of churrascaria dining, a Brazilian tradition that yields unlimited portions. Try hard to save room for crème brulee or strawberry cream for dessert.
In the tradition of a Brazilian churrascaria, the servers at Villa's Grill present guests with as much seasoned meat as their plates and appetites can hold. Nine different cuts of meat include everything from sausage and parmesan pork to bacon-wrapped chicken and picanha, a rump cut of beef popular in Brazil, where the owner grew up.
Though eating unlimited meat is a task in and of itself, you'll want to save room for the extensive selection of sides and desserts such as the brazilian flan. Occasional live music makes for romantic evenings, inspiring couples to gaze deep into each other's eyes as they plot to steal the last piece of bacon-wrapped chicken.
