What to Expect While Eating at a Brazilian Steakhouse

If you’re a fan of juicy cuts of meat, then dining at a Brazilian steakhouse is an experience you won’t want to miss. Brazilian steakhouses offer a dream come true to food enthusiasts. Below, we’ll take you on a culinary journey through what to expect when you dine at one of these establishments. From mouthwatering Brazilian steaks to the unique dining style, we’ll cover it all.

Meat Medley

When you step into a Brazilian steakhouse, be prepared to eat. The hallmark of these establishments is the “rodízio” style of service. Instead of ordering from a menu, you’ll find yourself sitting at your table as a procession of gauchos, who butcher, season, cook, and serve the meats, circulate the dining room with skewers of sizzling, perfectly grilled meats. This includes various cuts of beef, pork, chicken, and even fish.

The Variety

Brazilian steakhouses are known for their diverse range of cuts and flavors. Here are the options you can enjoy at Gaucho’s Prime: 

  • Picanha – The premium of top sirloin. The most famous Brazilian cut.
  • Alcatra – The large and long cut of the top sirloin. Top sirloin is the prime cut below the tenderloin of filet mignon.
  • Fraldinha – One of the juiciest and most flavorful cuts.
  • Ribeye – Favorite American cut. Seasoned and cooked to perfection
  • Filet Mignon – The most tender cut. Sprinkled with sea salt to preserve the tenderness and flavor.
  • Cordeiro – New Zealand halal meat. Specially marinated with lemon and fresh mint.
  • Porco – From our slow-cooked pork ribs to our traditional parmesan pork, carefully seasoned to wow your tastebuds.
  • Frango/Linguica – Our traditional slow-cooked chicken is marinated overnight in beer and cognac to complement your experience.
  • Salmon – Open fire-grilled salmon is served with our passionfruit sauce to perfect the flavor.

The Fresh Buffet

Many all-you-can-eat steakhouses offer a salad and hot bar. While the focus is undoubtedly on the meat, there’s no reason to overlook the delicious sides and fresh greens. At Gaucho’s Prime, we offer a Salad Bar with over 60 items, including Brazilian specialties, seasonal salads, aged cheese, and hearts of palm. Our Hot Bar features a variety of hot sides like black beans and caramelized bacon, to name a few. Our Fresh Buffet is a great way to balance the richness of the meat and add some variety to your meal.  

The Atmosphere

Brazilian steakhouses are known for their lively and vibrant atmosphere. The ambiance is typically warm and inviting, with Brazilian music playing in the background. At Gaucho’s Prime, our friendly servers add to the overall experience, making you feel like a guest at a Brazilian barbecue in someone’s home.

Pace Yourself

With so much delicious food constantly coming your way, it’s important to pace yourself. Take your time, savor each bite, and remember that it’s perfectly fine to take breaks between servings. At Gaucho’s Prime, diners are presented with a red/green coaster during their meal. Flip to green to signal you are ready for the gauchos to come by with your next serving of meat. Flip to red when you need to pause and take a break.
