Great food! Great service!

Food was excellent. Really enjoyed NY Strip. However, service was so bad that our drinks were never refilled except once by the manager and the servers would skip our table with the meat even though our meat card was flipped to "yes please". Did not receive the usual bread and bananas like the other tables. Again, had to ask manager for that. Had to ask repeatedly for the lamb chops as well.

The staff was great!! The customer service was great!! This place got a 3 star rating because in my opinion, the variety on the buffet was not up to par.. The price of the groupon ($75) plus the taxes & 20% gratuity that they add on at the restaurant after you redeem the voucher. I would have loved premium sides !! Baked potatoes & sweet potatoes, Mac & cheese, spinach etc.. They really dropped the ball on the side items..

The staff were told days before our reservation that the business was shutting down so their passion and work ethic reflected somber, jobless, Brazilian steakhouse experts with no source of income coming to them after the weekend! 20 minute waits between drink orders, requests for certain meats, dessert orders....awful service. Depressing atmosphere. Can’t really blame the staff... understandable

From Our Editors

Rafain has come a long way—literally. The Brazilian steakhouse currently occupies space in Dallas and Fort Worth, but it actually originated in southern Brazil in 1959. So when Olimpio and Philomena Rafain decided to open a churrascaria in America, they were simply continuing the family business. As a result, diners are guaranteed an authentic experience.

  • It’s a meat-lover’s paradise: “You need to like meat to thoroughly enjoy the experience here,” as DFW.com put it. In line with its authentic spirit, Rafain's menu features 17 cuts of meat cooked over an open charcoal pit, including the original spicy picanha, pork ribs, and bacon-wrapped filets. Gaucho servers present each meat on a long skewer, cutting portions onto diners’ plates.
  • You can sink your teeth into more than meat, though: The salad bar is stocked with upwards of 45 different gourmet selections, including a light calamari salad, Brazilian-style potato salad, and a vegetable mélange with bell peppers, asparagus, green beans, grilled onions, and baby portobello mushrooms. Those with room for dessert can enjoy specialties like affogato, crème brûlée, or papaya cream, which blends fresh papaya with vanilla bean ice cream before topping it with crème de cassis.
  • The libations are just as authentic as the cuisine: To drink, guests have a choice of mixed drinks, such as the traditional Brazilian "Caipirinha," a mojito-esque mixed drink fusing the sugarcane-based liquor cachaca with lime, sugar, and ice. Alternatively, they can order a glass of wine from an impressive 15-page list, which has been recognized with a Wine Spectator Award of Excellence since 2009. Rafain also earned its spot as one of OpenTable’s Top 100 Restaurants in America in 2014.
