One of the best all-you-can-eat steakhouses in São Paulo, this high-end chain (there are branches in more than a dozen American cities) was founded in 1979 by two brothers in Porto Alegre in southern Brazil. More than three decades later, the restaurant has remained loyal to its southern roots. The main focus is top-quality meat, and though there is an excellent salad bar with a variety of fresh greens and grilled vegetables, the side dishes are just meant as accompaniments. Waiters in traditional gaucho cowboy uniforms circulate through the large dining room with 16 different cuts of meat, including beef ribs, short ribs, tenderloin, top sirloin, rib-eye, chicken, pork, and lamb, all fresh from the grill. Just nod if you want a taste—you can always request more of your favorite choices. Drinks and desserts are not included in the fixed price, which is the same at both lunch and dinner.
