I used to go the Sal e Carvao and I have been to Texas de Brazil and Fogo de Chão.
This place has all the feel of a Mom & Pop operation. I think it is a triple store front and is about half kitchen.
The salad bar is nice but small. None of the real fancy stuff that you would see at one of the bigger places (heart of palm, Russian Salad, cold marinated meats, etc.). But the salads are very fresh and they have some nice touches (asparagus, artichoke hearts, grilled peppers).
The meat selection is more limited than the others - no lamb or pork. But the meats served are very tasty and tender.
My objection to most of these places is they salt the meat well and I don't have much sodium in my diet so I find salt taste a bit strong. But that is just my personal taste. My adult son loved it.
One advantage this place has is they have hot side dishes on the buffet with the salad bar. You can get black beans and rice and sautéed mushrooms. Also some fried bread and fried bananas come with the meal as well. These would be extra ala carte items at the bigger places, as I recall.
Lunch DO or small get together?
