Great place for a hearty dinner with friends. If you're not familiar with Brazilian Steakhouses...it's got the MEATS! The great thing about Espetus is their great buffet selection in addition to all the meat, so if you're on a low carb diet, or not that into meat on a pike, there are other options to break it up or replace...

Second time there. A real experience how they put it together. Great salad bar & so many entree choices. Parking is a little tough. Go when not peak hours.

Our family's enjoys the Brazilian churrasquerria and we have tried different restaurants, but on my opinion espetus is a bit pricy. If you go early that doesn't mean you will pay less then going at dinner yes you do get more meat variety at dinner and other options but besides that customer service is good the buffet is decent place...

Had a pleasant meal with a visiting family member. Talkative and happy crowd. Be prepared for a noisey atmosphere. Generally good choices among the meats available as the main course.

Food was typical Espetus quality. This review isn't for the food, as the title teases. Upon receiving the bill we noticed that each Soda Water (from the gun) refill was $2.50, for a total of $12.50. A member of our party noticed this and queried the Manager. He explained that Perrier was at least that much. He reasoned that imported... More

Thank you for your comments. Though we do understand your concern, there is a charge for any beverage other than plain water in our restaurant, as well as most others. We have no plans of implementing a seating, nor utensil charge, and hope you’ll decide to join us again in the future. More

Was there last night in a private room for an adult birthday party. Although the room was noisy, all worked out very well. We stayed long after the restaurant was cleaning up the main dining room. We were NOT rushed out. The food has improved since I was last there, especially the quality of the ingredients in the salad bar... More

I wanted to treat my son, and daughter-in-law to a dinner to remember at the end of their vacation. I had heard good things about Espetus Churrascaria and had wanted to try it but only for the right occasion. We arrived early (first customers) and, on reflection, this was an advantage. We had unlimited choice of the huge fresh salad... More

Came here few times already, but this is my first review. I love this place. Endless run of meat supply to your table as long as you show the green piece of paper on your table. Meat are flavourful. Correctly spiced. Not overly salty nor greasy. The grilled pineapple might not be the most appetizing with all the available meat... More
