Rodizio Grill, founded by a São Paulo native, specializes in Brazilian churrascaria dining. That means meats here are slow-roasted on a spit, skewered, and served tableside to diners by Brazilian cowboys known as gauchos. The gauchos actually bring unlimited slices of tender meat, only stopping when diners feel ready to burst.
A selection of seafood complements the meat, as does a robust salad bar with more than 40 items. Vegetarians can find plenty to eat at the salad bar, and everyone can delight in the famous grilled pineapple.
Before you hit up a Brazilian steakhouse, it helps to know what you’re getting into.
Brazilian steakhouses are smart. Their goal is to fill you up with cheaper cuts of meat at the beginning, so you don’t have a lot of room for the more expensive, tastier cuts of meat that come at the end. So be sure to save room for the back end of the meat processional if you want the best stuff.
FireWorks Restaurant may be known for its woodfire cooking—it has a wood-fired rotisserie, wood-fired pizza oven, and wood-fired grill—but equally impressive is its consideration for the environment. FireWorks is located in an energy-efficient building complete with a self-sustainable geothermal heating and cooling system. It even has its own 5,400-square-foot rain garden housing more than 3,200 native plants, shrubs, and trees.
If you go, try one of the 21-day-aged Omaha steaks paired with a craft cocktail or ale from FireWorks’s microbrewery, Empyrean Brewing Company.

This tiny spot has consistently tasty Chinese food at reasonable prices. It primarily caters to customers dining at home, but there are a few small tables inside if you can’t wait to eat your general tso’s.
