Had my dad's 60th birthday party here last weekend. They were very accommodating for the 16 people we had. Maître D' was extremely helpful with bringing everything out at the right time and making sure everyone was comfortable. They held onto the cake for us and cut it up and brought it out when I asked them to. There was never a time where I felt they were trying to push us out of there because we were there for several hours. Can't really beat the price, either. I'd definitely come back here. Only thing I could say I didn't like was that some of the meat was pretty rare as compared to other Rodizio's I've been to. But, that's just a personal preference.

One November 6, 2014, my family and I celebrated my mother's 81st birthday. We reserved a table for a party of 8 and all arrived within 10 minutes of each other. The first problem arose when we had to ask for a waiter to serve us, rather than a waiter coming to address us. After making several attempts to express my concerns with the waiter, I requested to speak with the manager. After speaking with the manager, the manager did very little to address my concerns. My issues include, but are not limited to, poor service, including the waiter not removing/cleaning the dirty dishes from the table, lukewarm food at the buffet, and cold coffee.

A friend of mine brought me here last Wednesday for lunch. The food was good so I decided to take my wife on Saturday. It was noon and according to them the meat was just being prepared and was not quite ready so we opted for the salad bar buffet. The huge banners outside advertised the salad bar buffet for $12.95. We both had a salad and went back for the meat dishes only to find that nothing was hot but rather just warm. I mentioned it to what seemed to be the manager saying that if they are open for lunch they should get the buffet up to temperature a lot sooner. So I took my wife thinking this would be a nice surprise only to be surprised myself with a sub par meal. Once we were finished the waiter brought over a bill for $65.00. I laughed and told him that something was wrong and that he should correct it and bring it back. The manager came back saying that the special advertised outside was only for weekdays and the weekend price was in fact double that. There was also a 15% gratuity added for two people at a buffet which I thought was just outrageous. So two salad bar buffets with only water, no drinks, coffee, desert, nothing cost me over $65.00! Needless to say, this was my last time there and the recommendations I made after my lunch a few days earlier will soon be retracted. I'm pretty confident that with these prices and sub-par food, this place will not survive. I rest assured that they will soon be hanging up a well earned "Out of Business" sign.

Manager is horrible. We called to check if Groupon deal worked and this girl picked up and said yes. We called twice to double check and both times she said yes. We enjoyed our meal but afterwards the jerk manager said we don't accept it today. He was so rude even the waiter said he's a douche. We were leaving and we saw him flirting with some customers. Worst management.

I think Rio Rodizio has a great atmosphere and their caipirinhas are worth a visit but the taste of the barbecue varies significantly. Sometimes it's good and sometimes it's not good. This last time I went there I took my co-workers and I was disapointed with the quality of the meat. It's a pity.
