My favorite drink. Always have difficulties getting it right though. Hard to find the right kind of sugar and my ice always turns to slush...

Say "yes" to our delectable Pomegranate Orange Caipirinha the next time you join us for a drink (or two).

A refreshing Strawberry Caipirinha is the perfect way to begin an evening after work while satisfying a sweet tooth.

Rafain not as good anymore. It's $45 on Sunday now instead of $27 they had for years. Then they act like they don't want you to eat. We had our coasters on green and they still kept skipping us after only giving us one slice of beef and one bacon wrapped chicken. Then they act like they want to bring us the check already! They also kept going to the tables with 4-5+ people around us. I kept waving them down and calling them: "Hey you! Come here with that! Don't go by our table without stopping!" If I'd known it was $45 now, I would had gone to Fogo instead. I will be posting a Scolding negative review on Facebook, YELP, Google, Urban Spoon, Open Table, Trip Advisor, Zagat and Zomato!

Listen, first off I don't like negative reviews and hardly ever do that, but in this case I believe there is a systemic change happening at Rafain and must warn other customers. I've been to Rafain 4-5 times over the last 5 years. In fact I've been to nearly every brazilian steak place in DFW many times. The last 2 times at Rafain, the steak has been so salty its nearly inedible. My brothers and I had the beef ribs last time and I could see a layer of large salt crystals that they had just spread over the freshly sliced meat. Think pure salt here. Even after eating only a very small plate of meat, I had to drink 4-5 glasses of water, and went home feeling like a hot water bottle. Personally I feel that the management knows exactly what they are doing with this, and they are trying to force its clients to eat less and drink more. Its actually not very cool, especially given the nearly 50 bucks a person cost. I'd personally really like to be able to taste the meat, not just salt!!!! Last night, they also didn't come around with their usual assortment, it looked like they were trying to get rid of whatever they had left for the day (we were eating at around 830-9pm). The cuts offered were basically anything cheap, tons of sausages, chicken, and the driest house sirloin I could imagine. The server was also slicing the house sirloin about 2 sheets of paper thin. Both my date and I told each other that we would definitely not be back and will opt for their competitor in Frisco.

The word...WOW, came up a number of times during dinner last evening. Naturally, anyone who has liven in Dallas for more than a year has tried all of the Brazilian Steakhouses..well, at least I have. Rafain usually places 3rd on the list of choices for Brazilian Steaks but after last evening it has moved to 1. Why? The big reason was the Noise Level...the place was packed last evening and I could actually carry on a nice conversation with my posse and not have to yell. The other places you would have to hand signals if you could hear at all. The next reason was the Roasted Pineapple....it was ridiculously awesome. Then come the Fillet Mignon... The OMG Meter registered a full out 'I Want More'. The wine selection was perfect as was the service. They could do a little better on the pecan pie, but it worked. Rafain now is on my Go To Place to Eat for business meetings and to take VIP's. I may even pop back in for their Lunch.

Superb! My family and I have been to Rafain a couple of times, but it been a while since our last visit. A coworker and I had lunch here last week and it was even better than I remembered it. Service was better than AMAZING!! The employees were extremely attentive and the meat never stopped coming and it came quick. Almost every server asked if we wanted a special meat and it would be at our table within the minute (highly recommend you load up on the House Special, the top sirloin grilled to perfection). Management will always working the floor too and interacted with the guests and seemed to know the regulars by name and asking about thier day and families. Would HIGHLY recommend this restaurant to everyone even if you need a quick bite to eat. By far the BEST Brazilian steak house that you will find!

WARNING..BUGS IN THE FOOD..we tried this place today and it is the biggest mistake we did..we walked in to this place with big expectations but turned to be a nightmare..we we're shocked that not too many people were there but also we found few small bugs in the salad bar and the meat smelled very bad..the manager was rude and he didn't care...I go to brazilian steakhouses alot but this is a big scam..I WARN you all never go this place it's big scam and if you eat there it's bad experience and salad was smelly full of small bugs. We will never go back again. Manager and staff were rude with zero customer experience and you better off try another place. Very Bad and will tell everyone I know never to go there.

This place get a +5 from me best Brazilin stakehouse i have been to so far, the staff is polite, attentive, and have a positive adatude that make the dinning experience fantastic. As for the food it is top notch the flavors meld well with eachother and the seasoning does not over power the meat. The salad bar is stocked with great ingredients and does not disapoint. When we come up this way again we will be back.
