most meat productions are from. The Gauchos, Brazilian cowboys, usually cook the meats with skewers slowly roasting in the heat. All the meats were marinated with simple seasoning and served with salads, Brazilian rice and beans. The best-roasted meats were shared around to each family. Now you can enjoy the same types of Churrasco in San Diego, CA. There are more than 40 different salads, side dishes, and meat selections served at Rei Do Gado Brazilian Steak House. It is a unique and healthy way of roasting meat over a mesquite flame that preserves tenderness and gives a taste unmatched by any other. Arriving at REI DO GADO, you will encounter an unlimited buffet at mouth-watering typical dishes and salads. The passador (meat waiter) will soon come to your table with different types of selections of meat at a time. Then meat will be sliced of the skewer down to your plate. This will continue when you place a green chip by your plate and by turning the chip over to red, this will signal that you are done.

Food was pretty good here, although I didn't get the meat as I wasn't feeling hungry on that day, the salad bar was decent. What really threw me off was the decor. Looked like an old strip club with random classic paintings on the wall and women dancing in cages. I don't remember for sure but I think they had carpet on the floors, or something that smelled old.

If you're looking for excellent Brazilian buffet, this is it! The restuarant served 14 differentkinds of meet on these skewers that the servers bring out, where they cut out portions to the serving size that YOU WANT!!! Unbelievable. Meats ranged from sausages to ribs to tri-tip to top sirloin! A meat lover's heaven, we stuffed ourselves silly on succellent and juicy bites! To top things off, the Brazilian buffet offered FRESH MANGOS!!! Literally, they had piles upon piles of fresh mangoes, and sliced ones also! Not the canned stuff, but real, sliced up mangos. We probably had about 20 mangos amongst the four of us! Can't get enough of that sweet stuff! One of the best Brazilian buffet I've ever had...and to make things even funnier,the place was owned by Koreans! Go figure! Exotic cuisines have certainly become quite international!

If you're down south in sunny San Diego, make sure to stop by Rei Do Gado!

Amazing Brazilian meat buffet in downtown SD. I've only been to two others, so I'm no expert, but I always enjoy my meals here. They give you a little knob, with one green end and one red end. When the knob is turned with the green side up, servers will come with sizzling meat dishes and slice pieces onto your plates. There is a salad and sides buffet for whatever else you'd want. I like the fresh fruit options. It isn't cheap- I think dinner is around $40 per person. Lunch is cheaper but they don't offer as many meat options.

Classic Brazilian Churasscario. Meat was good, service was good, and the salad bar was decent. They even had some King Crab legs but they didn't taste that good. They had live music on this Saturday night and drink girls that circled the restaurant to take drink orders so your server wouldn't have to deal with it. The meat comes fast so pace yourself.
