Horrible dining experience. We were so excited to find a Brazilian steakhouse, but it turned out to be a total flop. We ordered calamari for appetizer and it tasted like it was straight out of a bag from the freezer. Everything took 10 times longer to get than it should have. Finally after waiting 45 minutes for our lunch entree, we simply ask the waiter for our check for what we had eaten so far and left. The bar area is beautiful. I am Brazilian and nothing about the venue or the food or the Service reflects Brazilian. Poor food, poor service, high prices, incompetent staff, and loud bad music spell out disaster! I will be surprised to find this restaurant still open for business the next time we return to Carrollton. I do know that we will not be eating there again.

Ok ill keep it simple. The nicest waitress in town served us, best lunch specials beat even fast food prices for quality delicious food, and I feel like I'm welcomed and in a home like place there. Low lighting with a cozy warm feeling. Don't be skeptic, the pizza was great and for 9 bucks on Friday you get a personal pizza, a soup, and salad! Tell Joe I sent you. You won't be disappointed. Those people below are all looney. My coworkers and i always eat here.

The inside does not reflect what I would consider to be a Brazilian restaurant! Also the music that is blasted from the back room is quite annoying when your trying to have a nice lunch! The food was decent I would eat there again! But if you have a coupon for this place good luck using it, I have tried to use my 10% off coupon and every time they tell me "You cant use it this time but we will take it the next time!"

My family and I ate at Samba Loca for Father's Day 2015. The appearance of the restaurant was upscale but the staff was very down to earth and friendly. This was my first experience dining in a Brazilian Steakhouse and I was highly impressed. I had the filet (medium-rare, without sauce) and it blew any other steak that I have ever eaten away. The black beans and yellow rice was divine and the macaroni and cheese was "tongue slap yo' brains out GOOD!!!" The prices were reasonable, even though the food was expertly cooked and aesthetically presented. Goodbye Longhorn - Samba Loca is my new favorite steakhouse.

Took my family to eat at Samba Loca tonight. It was wonderful. The service was great and the food, while it took a while (all fresh prepared ingredients,) was excellent. I'll be returning to enjoy some of the other items I wanted to try.

We arrived a few minutes early for 7:00 dinner reservation. Told we had to wait for a while and we can’t have a table as the open table is being held for someone with a reservation, apparently not us. There is noone else waiting to be seated. We wait. This is a new restaurant, and we want to give them a chance. We look around. The food score, a rating by the dept. of health required to be posted in a visible area, is missing. 10 minutes later – seated at the same table hostess told us we couldn’t have. It isn't very clean. Waitress comes with water and menus. After a wait, she comes back and asks if we want drinks. We ask if there is a wine menu, which she finds for us. Wait wait wait wait wait. Waitress brings us a bread basket. But no bread plates. Waitress comes back in about 10 minutes – no drinks, they only have 2 bartenders tonight [Friday night, small restaurant and not a ‘bar’, so 2 should have been fine, but they are so slow] We order appetizers, our meals, and a wine we ask to be served with the meal. Wait wait. Drinks arrive. Taste like they opened a packet of sour mix powder and shook it with some unidentified liquor – has foam on the top of the "margarita." Waitress walks by often, but does not check with us. Finally we wave her down – tell her the drink is terrible and send it back. She returns to tell us that one of the entrees is not available. My husband tells her he will have whatever I am having. Wait wait. Waitress brings us the bottle of wine. We tell her, again, that we want it with the meal and to please keep it chilled until then. Since she is there we ask her what the food score is. She tells us it is posted up front. She looks. It isn’t there. She tells us she will find out from the owner. Wait wait. We have been here almost an hour and have been served one basket of bread and a bad margarita. After another 10 minutes we get our appetizer, but no plates. We ask for plates. Oh! She gets us 2 plates. Another 10 minutes goes by. Waitress comes to tell us that our meal will be up next. She clears the appetizer plates. Finally our meal is delivered. But no silverware. A few more minutes goes by and the waitress comes back with the bottle of wine, which had obviously been sitting in the ice bucket the whole time as all the ice is melted. We ask for silverware. Oh! She goes and gets it. Then returns to open the bottle of wine. Which she can’t open. Finally takes bottle to the back. Comes back in a few minutes with the opened wine bottle. After an hour and a half we have received our meal! We have wine. We have silverware. We have food. And it is okay. Nothing wrong with the food, but not worth the wait either. We decide that we are not even going to attempt to order a dessert or coffee, but that turns out to be a non-issue. Although plenty slow about taking orders and bringing food, plates, silverware, they are FAST when it comes to the bill. We aren’t even asked if we WANT dessert or coffee – the bill is plunked down on the table while there is still wine in the glasses and food on the plates. At least we won’t have a long wait for this! But, sadly, the bill is in error. We are charged for 3 entrees – the two we were served as well as the one that was ordered originally but not available. My husband doesn’t wait [we’ve learned] but goes to the waitress at the back and tells her the bill has an error. So the owner comes to our table to apologize that they did not have the entrée we ordered. We explain that we are not upset that they did not have the entrée. We do not believe we should be charged for food we did not receive. After a few minutes we get the bill again, and this time it does not have the un-delivered entrée listed. We also received a discount on our meal. However, we’ve been here for nearly 2 hours and have not been treated courteously from when we walked in the door to the completion of the meal. And, illegally and a little scarily, we never do find out the food score.

I personally love this place! My boyfriend and I went there Friday for dinner and it was awesome! The food was to die for!!! I ordered the Parispenne and it was the best! Also, being a Friday night, my boyfriend and I just wanted to have some fun. That was one reason we chose Samba Loca. There ended up being several people there we knew that also said they loved the restaurant. We ordered $4 cocktails which were delicious!!!!!!!!! It was a fun night~
