I had a soon to expire Groupon so the wife and I went down there Sunday evening. I was very disapointed indeed. The food on the hot table was barely lukewarm. The cold food was fine. They dropped a few slices of garlic bread on the table that were cold, greasy and heavily charred. The gauchos came out infrequently which means we sat a lot waiting to be served cold food. Two of the three chicken offerings were cold and very dry. Some of the beef was tough and had a lot of gristle. On previous visits (a long time ago I admit) I never had any problems with anything at Pichana which is why I am so surprised. On a Sunday at 6pm the place was 10% full at best and now I know why. I say save your money and go elsewhere. I don't see how they survive.
They've been going down hill. i find brazilian joints are getting pricier for what they serve.
lunch time is prob how they survive, you don't get as many meat selection, but enough to get yourself content.
M grill is nice, but they're charging close to fogo's price, but not F de C's quality and quantity.
gauchos village in glendale is around picanha's tier.
