Everything is delicious. Everything. If you are a meat eater, you have to visit. That's all there is to that.

Meats were amazing!! Only hot sides offered were mashed potatoes or mashed sweet potatoes. Had amazing looking roasted zucchini, served on ice. I don't like cold sides and I don't do carbs so I are salad and meat. Won't return,service was amazing.

Typical Brazilian Steakhouse with the on/off. 16 different meats and each was excellent. My favorites was the house Special. I stayed away from the chicken but all the beets and lamb was great. Highly recommended.

You should make reservations for Indianapolis. We got there when they opened and it was already packed with people waiting.

Our featured meats have been slow-roasted over an open flame and lightly seasoned to preserve the unique taste of each tender cut.Adding to our unique dining experience, you will be treated to a sumptuous, gourmet salad and vegetable bar featuring over 30 items including imported cheeses, cured meats, fresh vegetables and more. We complement your meal with traditional Brazilian side dishes such as caramelized bananas, crispy polenta, seasoned mashed potatoes and our world-famous cheese bread (pao de queijo).No meal is complete without trying a refreshing caipirinha, something from our award-winning wine list or one of our decadent desserts
