Meat is not the best quality and take a long time to be served- would not come back. It takes a long time to get the food and unless you add sauces it does not taste good

Great place with an all you can eat concept but still very stylish. That's a rate combination, in my experience. Maybe because it is not cheap. Considering the freshness, the variety, the Quality, et cetera, the prices are fair. Very good value. An interesting place...More

I recently enjoyed dinner at Pampas with some work colleagues. We tried every meat on the list except the chicken hearts, which was never offered. My favorite was the well-seasoned NY strip -- incredible! All of the options were fantastic, including the chocolate cake dessert....More

Definitely a good place to go when you just have a meat craving. Cannot go wrong with any of the meats they have, along with the grilled pineapple. Salad bar is really good as well. Decent drink menu. Located next to a parking garage.

I will give this place a 5 even though I didn't like the tenderloin or the lamb chops much. I think they need to do a better job of seasoning their meats, some were too salty and some not enough. The pineapple roasted on the...More
