Brazilian steak houses are renowned for slicing everything fresh at the table, from the skewers of roasted meat to the valet parking. Partake of flame-grilled fun with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Brazilian barbecue at Midwest Grill. Choose between the following locations:
Spools of succulent meats roasted Brazilian-style, over an open fire, circulate around tables endlessly at Midwest Grill, where servers carve blankets of beef, pork, and lamb tableside, tenderly transferring hot slices to waiting plates. In traditional churrascaria rodizio fashion, adult diners ($20.95–$24.95/person for dinner) engage in unlimited meat helpings, devouring unending protein harvests and fielding robust handshakes from traditional sirloins. Brazilian sausages unleash devastatingly tubular flavors on palates, and ribs and chicken hearts pair off for a strangely irresistible duo of taste. Crispy-skinned chicken breast and lamb cap off cutting-board collages, and guests in pork-induced hazes drift to the endless cold-salad station for leafy breaks.
Seafood and vegetarian service fills platters with sea-sourced proteins and vegetables culled from prized plant herds ($12.95 for lunch, $16.95 for dinner), with dishes including bubbly bowls of moqueca, stewed with tomatoes, green pepper, and flavorful fish soirees. Pint-size diners ages 8–13 ($8.95/person), may also partake in meat-related melees, or quietly whittle pieces of beef into likenesses of Sam Elliot’s mustache.
Prices for dinner vary by location and time of service.
“Basta, basta!” The words may as well be a mantra at Midwest Grill. The term, meaning “enough” in Portuguese, is the perfect finish to the churrascaria’s all-you-can-eat cavalcade of grilled meats and hearty seafood dishes. Passadores—the Brazilian word for waiters—rotate around tables, slicing fresh-grilled skewers of beef sirloin, Brazilian-style ribs, and succulent lamb and pork loin on to plates at the feaster’s demand. This dining style is known as rodízio, and it doesn't just apply to churrasco meats; patrons can also opt for seafood options, such as Brazilian fish stew and sautéed shrimp, or engage a server in a duel with a carving fork. The all-you-can-eat meal is served at a fixed price at both lunch and dinner, and includes unlimited helpings from the salad bar and hot-food buffet. Each of Midwest Grill's locations also houses a TV-lined bar, where mixologists concoct cocktails and pop open bottles of Brazilian beer and wine.
