  1. Other Brazilian BBQ Buffets include Fago de Chao in Beverly Hills, Samba in Redondo Beach, By Brazil II in Torrance and Rio in Encino.

    1. I've only been to Fago de Chao in Beverly Hills but I think the service and food was very good. I'm not a huge meat eater, but I enjoyed their chicken offerings and they have a huge salad bar.

      But my favorite food is bread and Fago de Chao has these delicious cheese bread rolls that kept being renewed when they got cold. We didn't have to ask or anything!

      It's pretty pricey though... I went for lunch with a friend and the total was around $90 w/o tip... Dinner is around $50 a person... but I heard the meat is mostly the same...

      Must try those others and compare...

      1. there is also m-grill in koreatown.

        1. Haven't tried it yet, but Porto Alegro Brazilian B.B.Q. just opened recently at Paseo Colorado in Pasadena.

          1. At Farmer's Market, I've noticed what appears to be a buffet-style Brazilian place, that always has a long line waiting.

              its not a buffet as you pay for the food by the pound.
