I respect everyone's opinion, but the reviewers that are complaining about the price really don't have much of a clue... When it comes to the REAL brazilian bbq restaurants in the LA area, By Brazil has the most reasonable price in town. I respect and understand if you think paying $20-$25 for your all-you-can eat meal is too much, but how about comparing it to FOGO DE CH?O for example - $60/head, Agora Churrascaria $41, Gaucho's Village $26.99 Sunday-Thursday and $34.99 Friday-Saturday, Green Field $29.95, Picanha was more expensive as well, just don't remember how much it was (and cleverly, they don't post prices in their website). The main advantage about this place is that it's very personable, meaning, the attention that the servers give the customers is much better than the other places and that also reflects the food itself - it's all home made style, meaning, they actually prepare the food themselves as opposed to unbagging/uncanning their salad, for example. Sure, it's not the most glamorous place to go (like most of the others), but that's just another reason to like this place. Oh, not to mention it is the oldest brazilian churrascaria in the LA area (around 20 years in business!!!). This place has gone through some changes and fortunately, it has improved tremendosly from its origins.
Pros: Food, ambience, price, attention to customers, owners are friendly and active
Cons: not as glamorous as some might want it to be, located in a somewhat quiet street
