"WOW" is all I can say. I've never eaten that much meat in one sitting. They must have their egg's working overtime :laugh:

    I love that place. Every time I swear I won't eat meat for another 6 months. Of course, that only lasts until the next day!

    If you sign up at their website they offer some pretty good deals. I've been several times now and always had one free meal between the two of us.

    Funny story:
    In a previous job, we had a member of our team who was located in Brazil. He'd come up to visit us once or twice a year. On one of the visits, our boss planned a meal at a churrascaria (no, I don't know why he thought the Brazilian guy would want to visit the US and go out to a US Brazilian restaurant, but I don't make these decisions).

    When the waiters started coming around, everyone was gorging themselves, but Alex kept saying "no thanks". After several waiters had been by with their skewers, and Alex's plate was still clean, someone asked him if something was wrong. "I'm waiting" was all he said.

    Finally, the waiter with the picanha came around, and Alex's eyes lit up. "I'll take that, please." So the waiter carved off a slice. "Some more please, sir." Another slice...and more, and more... I think that was all Alex ate. "It's the best part" he said. I think there's something to be said for knowing what you want.

    We have a Fogo de Chao here. It's like sport eating.

    I just can't help but compare the cost of the meal, with what I could be to put on the eggs.

    Love the places from Brazil. There is one called Chimas in Ft Lauderdale Fl on Las Olas. Looked up the the "picanha" and it is a tri-tip. Man knew what to wait for.

    I don't think it's a tri-tip. He said it came from the rump. I think he called it a rump-cap. Tri-tip is from the bottom sirloin, isn't it? The picanha has a healthy fat cap on it, and I've never seen a tri-tip with a layer of fat like that.
