Anyone who knows me well is aware of the fact that I can be a rather picky eater. I am not a fan of salads, and not the craziest about certain vegetables. On the other hand, I am a huge fan of steak, chicken, pork, and just about any other meat out there.
I think that is one of the reasons I love Rioz Brazilian Steakhouse in Myrtle Beach, SC. I have eaten there on several occasions and absolutely love it! My wife and I decided to visit Rioz yesterday for lunch and take advantage of their winter special. During the months of January & February, they are offering half price on their feast on Sundays.
When I say feast, I am by no means exagerrating. For those who have never been to a Brazilian steakhouse before, let me explain how the meal is served. You start out by enjoying the very extravagant hot/cold salad bar that features everything from fresh sushi, shrimp cocktail, & fresh mozzarella to Black Beans & Rice.
Once you finish with the salad bar you then let your Gauchos know you are ready for the main course by flipping over your card to show you are now ready for the meats to start coming. Also, you are served at this time fresh mashed potatoes, cheese bread, fried bananas, and polenta. Gauchos will then stop by your tables offering you fresh hot cuts of all types of meats that they carry on long spears. They have everything from filet mignon to Parmesan encrusted pork and more. You can see the full list of the 17 different types of meats available here. The meats will keep coming until you say stop.
While there are many delicious desserts available including my favorite creme brule, we so full yesterday, that we just finished with a nice piece of fresh toasted pineapple. The meal for two of us was just under $40.00. I believe it was an exceptional value. The service was phenomenal as well. The General Manager who was extremely busy yesterday even found time to stop by our table, ask how everything was and even took time to comment about how cute our daughter is. I guess that explains why there was a 2 hour wait yesterday for Sunday Lunch! However, if you ask either myself or my wife, the wait was well worth it.
