Best Churrascaria (Brazilian / Rodizio)?

What's the best Churrascaria anywhere near the Strip?

I have been to Samba (Mirage) and have heard about Pampas (Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood) and Texas de Brazil (Town Center). Am I missing any?

  1. Via Brazil just down the street from the Suncoast has great food

      Via Brasil is excellent but no where near the Strip as requested by the original poster.

      1. re: Eric's about 20 minutes from the strip? OP mentions Texas de Brazil (Town Center) which is even further from the strip.

          I am assuming the original poster is not familiar with Las Vegas. The poster may have see that Texas de Brazil has a Las Vegas Blvd. and not realize that it's south of the Strip.

    2. Whatever you do, don't eat at Yolie's. I got dragged there by a friend a few years ago and it was atrocious . . . might have been my all-time worst Vegas meal.

      1. What about Fogo De Chao...I was there last month and it was great. Much better than the one in Philly, close to The Strip also.

          Fogo is my first choice, followed by Texas de Brazil if I have a 2 for 1 coupon. :)

        2. If its not too late stay away from Pampas! Food very average, service horrendous.

          1. I'm back - it's pretty much down to between Fogo de Chao and Samba; I'm leaning toward Fogo.

            Anybody know what the dress code is at Fogo de Chao?
            Normally when I'm in Vegas, I wear a polo shirt (with white undershirt underneath), white khakis, and Nike athletic trainers. Is that underdressed, or is it more of a "pretty much anything better than a T-shirt and shorts, and we'll even stretch that on a Monday-Thursday before 6" policy?

              Do yourself a favour and go to Fogo. Business casual is what I would say for dress, although, I usually go in a nice t-shirt/polo, shorts, and flip flops. But, then again, I'm a local and always assume there will be casually dressed tourists everywhere to lower the bar. LOL. So, I'll tell you business casual and really mean do what you want. But, go to Fogo.

                You'll be fine dressed that way at Fogo, IMO.
