The Brazialian place on Hancock in Quincy ... opinions, please

Have walked past many times but never gone in.

Should I?

    I went a long time ago. I liked it, but had no basis of comparison to other Brazilian.
    Casual atmosphere, live music, friendly staff--so it has a good vibe.

    Meat on skewers was good as I recall--although beef may have been more done than I like (i.e.on the rare side of medium rare). The salad bar was just OK, but as I recall we were on the late side of dinner--after 9:00 when we went, so that may have had something to do with the somewhat limited selection.

    I haven't been back, not because I didn't like it, but rather because I seem to be eating less meat in general.

    You should try it!

      It's quite good; cheaper and better and more selection than Midwest Grill.

      I've been a few times. It's very good, definitely worth a visit. The caveats are:

      The salad bar is ok, but not great. Certainly not up to par with the best Churrascarias I've eaten in.

      The lamb skewers were way overdone and a bit dried out for my tastes. However, I found the beef perfectly cooked rare...If you like it more done, get a new skewer and they can cut from the outside edge for you. Once they cut down more, it's usually rare.

      The turkey wrapped in bacon and the chicken are excellent, as well as the sausages. They sometimes have chicken hearts as well, which I like. They also sometimes serve a parmesan-crusted beef loin, which is outstanding.

      If you do go, get a Caiprihna from the bar. They make very good ones there.

        THANKS EVERYONE.

        I am planning on trying it soon.
