(See my other Food posts) – I recently went with a group of the family to the Rodizio Grill in Henderson, NV. This is one location in a chain and it is a Brazilian Steakhouse or Churrascaria. The first restaurant in the chain opened in 1995. There are currently 21 locations in the chain, with a 22nd in development. Unfortunately, there are none in the Austin, TX area yet. The location we visited is located at 1300 W Sunset Rd, #2950, Henderson, NV 89014.
Like most Brazilian Steakhouses, the Rodizio Grill has an extensive salad bar, in addition, there are over a dozen rotisserie-grille meats & signature items served right at your table by ‘Rodizio gauchos’. You can view the extent of their selections with their online menu.
We all thought the food very good. TripAdvisor rates this restaurant as 4.5/5, while Yelp rates it at 4.5/5 also. You can choose to just eat at the salad bar ($19.99 for lunch, $21.99 for dinner) or have the full meat selection along with the salad bar ($26.99 for lunch, $36.99 for dinner). We chose the full selection at dinner and it was well worth it. After your meal is over, you get to pick (if you have any room left) from their selection of desserts. A desert comes with your meal.
This is a restaurant I would recommend, but make sure you that you arrive hungry! With all of the food at the salad bar, then the ‘gauchos’ coming by your table every few minutes you will certainly leave stuffed.
