We bring Churrasco-Rotisserie and cook all of the meat on Rodizio skewers right in front of you. The aromatic flavors are so intense, they might steal the show. We prepare different cuts of Certified Angus Beef, pork, lamb, shrimp, poultry, and beef and pork sausages, roasted slowly to maintain their natural flavors. Next, you’ll watch our Gauchos slice the meat off the cooking skewers as the juices flow onto your plate.
A churrascaria (shoo-HOSS-ka-REE-ah) is a Brazilian steakhouse. In the early 1800's, European immigrants settled in the Rio Grande do Sul area of Brazil. They were strong and skillful people who treasured and nurtured the land and quickly became adept at raising and herding cattle imported from Cabo Verde. The settlers, our ancestors, became known as Gauchos.
A unique type of cooking, called churrasco (shoo-rhas'co) was inspired by these ranchers. Churrasco is a Brazilian term referring to a thick cut of steak. They would gather together and start a wood burning fire, once the fire turned into golden embers, large portions of prime meat were skewered and slowly cooked to perfection. Using conventional knives, which they wore on their belts, they sliced thin and succulent pieces of meat in succession onto each person's plate.
