Brazilian steakhouse

I’ve never been to one but recently I’ve been watching this Mike Chen guy on YouTube and he went to one and my mouth was just watering the whole time. Any good ones that you recommend in the GTA? Preferably buffet but if not, reasonable price please haha.

The two in the GTA that I've been are Copa Cabana and Rodeo. Imo, Copa Cabana is better, though both are quite expensive. Both are all you can eat style similar to the one in Mike Chen's video.

Rodeo has an early seating that is quieter than Copa in Toronto.
I wish there were more than just two AYCE Brazilian steak houses to choose from in Toronto Ontario.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

I've been to both Rodeo and Copa. It's been years but I personally prefer Rodeo.

Okay, but when you say "Years" How long ago? They used to be known as the Red Violin. Same idea, different name.

8 years ago.

I'd say Rodeo about 8 years and Copa about 5 years

WOW! I guess the Red Violin was more than 8 years ago! I honestly can't remember...I just remember that's what they used to be called before becoming Rodeo.

I also recall their cheese and shrimp selection was wonderful too. I'd go almost just for the salad bar lol

I know it became Rodeo, but it seems to be nothing more than a name change, and maybe a furniture upgrade. Same great salad bar and same great AYCE meat brought right to your table one random round at a time.
