  •   Wonderful local place.  Meat well seasoned and a nice variety.  Hot and cold food fresh and thoroughly enjoyed the cheese bread and grilled pineapple.  Pace yourself, lots of good food.  Definitely recommend a try!

  •   tldr: would give 4.5 stars if possible. 5 for steaks, but 4 for location/atmosphere and salad bar

    First impression - a little sketchy location. Reminded me of Bridesmaids, I'm not going to lie. We were seated at a cramped table for two and they took our drink order (+1 for unlimited fountain drinks). Their salad bar didn't inspire much hope, especially when compared to other Brazilian steakhouses. It basically consisted of some bagged salads and "eh" veggies.  

    The first few rounds of meat we got were on the well-done side and okay on the flavor. However, as we ate on, the quality significantly improved.

    The top sirloin, lamb, and grilled pineapple were my favorites and, boy, were they worth the couple slices of overdone and under-seasoned steak. On top of that, my husband and I both agreed that the service was leagues above other Brazilian steakhouse chains - from asking if we wanted specific cuts to making sure our fountain drinks were always topped off.

    If you want to "wow" your out-of-town guests with elegance and over-the-top atmosphere, don't bring them here. BUT - if you want to bring your family for a delicious dinner of unlimited steak and friendly service at half the price, come to Vila Brazil.

  •   I am lover of Brazilian steakhouses. I have been to many including some of the better chains like Fogo, Texas De Brazile, etc.  I needed to grab dinner and wait out hour traffic so I did a quick search.  A few different Brazilian places came up.  This one caught my eye so I came.  When I first pulled up I almost didn't come in.  However I told myself that I would try it.  Walking inside this place wasn't bad looking. It wasn't a Fogo but I wasn't expecting a Fogo.  

    The server was very friendly and had me set up quickly.  It was only about 6:10 so the dinner rush wasn't under way yet.  

    Most Brazilian steakhouses bring out sides like bananas, cheese bread, etc. This was all on the salad bar.  The salad bar was ok but compared to other Brazilian steakhouses was just ok.  

    The first serving of meat was garlic steak. It tasted good but was dry and seemed like it has been sitting for a bit.  The pork ribs came next and same thing.  Dry and a bit old. The Brazilian staple came out.  It was good.  Then followed again by garlic steak.

    I sat there for about 5 minutes waiting for more meat.  Normally there isn't any time between servers and you are always playing catch up.  

    So far I have only been offered the 3 meats mentioned above and there is another low in meat being served.

    The sirloin they just brought out was darn good and had great flavor.  However, this is now the third time the ribs have been offered and still have only seen 4 meats.

    They came by with some lamb.  Overall it had a good taste.

    The bright spot so far is how good the waiter was always keeping my glass of tea full and checking in.  I think his service alone earned a higher ranking then I was planning on giving. Right now all the staff is sitting around the bar talking except for the waiter.  

    I haven't gotten the check yet but plan to end the night.  As I did they came by with bacon wrapped chicken. I think this was the 6th meat.  It was good and followed by pineapple which was good.  My final rating will be decided on how much this cost for the overall quality of the experience.  

    31 dollars without tip was a bit high I feel.  I did leave the waiter a 25% tip for his hard work.  

    Overall it wasn't a terrible place.  I have had a lot worse.  Would I come back, probably not.  

    Service I would give 4 stars to waiter.
    Salad bar I would give 2 stars
    Meat selection I would give 2 stars
    Overall taste I would give 3 stars.
    Price I would give 2 stars.

  •   After reading all the great reviews, and hearing the word of mouth, we were super excited to try this place. We were pre warned that it was going to be crowded, and that it was. But that's not the part that bothers me.

    When we walked in, we were quick to be sat down, we were put next to a wall that barely fit us, the woman that helped us, was nice at first, and very helpful. But soon we realize that would be the last of that.

    Let's get to the food, I was impressed to see that there was quite a few things on their salad bar that aren't normally on salad bars, they only had one salad option, very few vegetables, but I did like that they had the Brazilian bread, polenta, fried cauliflower, sweet potatoes, and beef empanadas. So some of these things were good, some lacked in flavor. The Brazilian bread was very dense. And I think it had been sitting on the salad bar for too long as it was very hard at the bottom.

    It is supposed to be all you can eat meat, for a place that says that it has many options, we only saw maybe four of those options. The parmesan chicken, which was burnt several times that it came up to us, the sausage, which was very greasy, the garlic beef which had no taste whatsoever, and the chicken legs. Overall we were quite unimpressed.

    During this time our server refilled our drinks once maybe twice, but overall began to ignore us once some larger parties came in. Every time we tried to get her attention she would look the other way as fast as possible, it was very frustrating.

    When it came towards the end of the meal, we asked if we could have some of the cinnamon pineapple, we were really excited to try it as the reviews boast that it is delicious. And honestly it was the best part of our meal. What made us a little upset when we got the bill was that they do not let you know that they do charge for it. It's only $2, but after the experience that we had it was kind of just the last straw. If I'm going to be charge for additional things that are usually free at other Brazilian steakhouses I just want to know.

    I feel like the lack of flavor in the food, and the lack of choices that they actually offer, along with the service and the extra charges, have brought me to the conclusion that 1 out of 5 stars is going to be the best grade for this place. I think next time I will take my $50 elsewhere.

  •   Neighborhood Brazilian steakhouse complete with soccer -er football on TV. The intimate interior is located in a strip center on the 183 access road.

    The wine list is limited as one would expect from a smaller restaurant. But the food is exactly as you would expect from one of the chain restaurants in this culinary genre. And so is the price. Perhaps even more side entrees options.

    But you are here for the meats so experts bypass the salads, sides, and bread. The choices were plentiful and cooked to expectation. Guest and I enjoyed experience. You will too supporting a local business owner offering up cuisine that tastes this good.
