After paying $25, I was lead to believe that this would pretty much be meat on the hoof. A friend who had been to a similar restaurant described it as ""Relentless meat until yo...

I had a Groupon for this place and it was okay. Not as good as other Brazilian meat on sticks places I've been, but it had a decent selection. They wouldn't rotate the tri tip as often as the chicken and that got annoying too. Easy parking in structure or street. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 2/13/2014

No longer one of the best Brazilian BBQ around. The service is terrible and the food is mediocre. The waitress did not tend to use but was busy talking to other employees. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 4/30/2013

Come in early to avoid crowds. The place is HUGE! Very clean. I normally come here when they first open (like 12:10ish), fresh foods, juicy meats, fresh salads, heaven! Great for group, they got long tables if you have a large group. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 4/11/2013

I went to eat at Picanha on a Friday night and I was worried it was going to be super packed. It did end up being super packed but the friendly staff had us seated in five minutes. The service was wonderful and the food was even better. They have a great variety of meats and my wife loved the salad bar. I would definitely recommend this place and I look forward to going back. Pricing is very affordable. more

I was recently in Burbank on vacation and decided to stop by this place. I had heard good things about it. Let me tell you, ITS ALL TRUE: This place is absolutely AMAZING! I was highly impressed with the staff and their friendliness and most of all, their lamb was incredible! I am a huge lamb lover and they did NOT disappoint me at all! Next time I'm in Burbank, I'm going to visit them again! Great overall experience. A+++ ALL THE WAY. more

Huge portions of delicious food! I work in the area and I always drop by for lunch when I am looking to get a hearty meal for an affordable price. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 8/14/2012

Delicious food!!!! I came in here last week with some friends for a birthday party and loved it! The food was amazing, the drinks were delicious, and I was completely stuffed when I left. Definitely going to come back for lunch or even happy hour next time I am in Burbank! more

Come Hungry and Leave Happy!!! 5/3/2012

This place was great! Me & the boys came on a busy Friday night. Seating was limited but we were seated pretty fast. The ambience is nice with the decorations and tiles reminding me of South America. There is a grill right in the middle of the restaurant which is very cool so you can see the meat cooking right there! Meat = A+ Side dishes/Salad Bar = A+ Brazilian Cheese bread = OMG A+!!! Service = A- (The meat is a little slow coming out at times but still gets to you with a great variety!) Cleanliness of bathrooms = A- Friendliness of staff = A+ I would go here again every weekend. Great place! more

Burbank Brazilian Street Hustle 6/5/2011

$ 120.00 for 4 people was a horrible insult ! This place should just close the doors now and stop this disgusting representation of Brazilian Cuisine. We had to beg for meat like street people. We were there for two hours just trying get a little food. We left hungry , thirsty and angry. This place feels like a street hustle not a restaurant ! more

EXCELLENT - FOOD !! 4/28/2011

Our birthday party of 8 were quite happy with the Picanha dining experience. Started off with the Brazilian cocktail (Caipernhas) - DYNO-MITE ! We loved it !! Walked to the hot buffet counter - so much to chose from. Garlic mashed potatoes, basil rice, black beans, fried bananas (yummy), sauteed zucchini and more. Fresh green salad, hummous, tahboleh, hearts of palm w/diced tomatoes etc. Soup of the day was lentil - my favorite ! The waiters bring a small basket of hot cheese bread - So Good ! You just can't eat one. more

Best Churrasco in California 6/5/2010

I went to Picanha Friday night with my boyfriend for our two year anniversary. Our experience their really made our night special. We started off with a couple of brazilian cocktail called caiperinhas, they were too die for! I pryed the reciepe from you server and now I can make them anytime I want. Next we sampled the salad bar and hot food section. My fav was the chicken strogonoff with rice. I tried not to eat to much because I wanted to save my appitiete for the bbq'd cuts. Every cut of meat was pure heaven but I have to say my favorite was the Picanha. The steak just melted in my mouth! I would recommened this restaurant to anyone who loves great value, service and yummy food!!! Pros: great Caiperhiinha's, Freindly Staff more

Food Poisoning 6/3/2010

Although meat dishes are not to my liking, I was quite pleased with the fair amount of variety at the salad bar. I picked about four items and they were okay. Unfortunately though, a few hours later I got incredibly ill. I went to the doctor who told me I definitely got food poisoning. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS RESTAURANT. Stay away and get your meat craving fulfilled somewhere else. If the salad bar is poorly maintained, then what other health issues might they be overlooking? more

What made it special or unique? The ambiance, delicious meats, the wonderful aroma of the food cookin throughout the restaurant - that was a unique smell to it unlike any others. The decor was very nicely designed. The cozy bar area has a plasma TV and decorated in a dark wood which reminds me of the show ""Cheer's. I'll stop in one day and have a drink . The hot & cold food buffet was over whelming, what shall I pick? OK...all of it...LOL. Pros: Tender Tasty Meats & FOOD more

Very Impressed! 9/11/2009

I went there by myself for lunchtime one time because i had heard about they're brazilian business lunch and thought i would try it. I loved it because i wasn't forced to do the all you can eat option and instead was able to have just a small amount of meat but still as much salad and sides i wanted. I liked it so much that i decided to take my girlfriend there for dinner the following week and we got the all you can eat. It was fantastic! The bunch of different meats they have are delicious and complemented by all of the sides really nicely, the staff was really nice both times, the pricing was really great (only about $10 for the limited meat business lunch and about $28 for the all you can eat dinner), and the atmosphere was really fun, with brazilian music playing the whole time. We will definitely be coming back! Pros: Food, Service, Fun Atmosphere more

Absolutely Delicious! 9/11/2009

My friends and I went here on a recommendation to celebrate a birthday and we absolutely loved it! The staff was very friendly, the meat, especially the picanha, was piping hot and full of juicy-goodness! I would also recommend the chicken stroganoff and plantains. For my friends birthday, they surprised him with a chocolate mousse and sang happy birthday in, I believe, Portugese. Overall, we left very happy customers and are sure to return! Pros: Sizzling Hot Meat, Great Staff, Convenient Parking more

Absolutely Divine !! 5/26/2009

My family and I are always satisfied with the delicious meats and the buffet. This time around we actually tried the ""tuna salad"" oh my goodness !!!!! That was so good, I went back for 2nd's at the buffet. Try their soup as well ""very healthy ""vegetable soup"". We always go for the cheese ball bread, its served warm and bet you can't eat just one. All the flavorful juicy meats were carved by their gaucho men and served hot from the skewer. They also have a bar for mixed drinks, wine or beer. Our dining experience has always been a true delight at Picanha which is why we frequent 2x month. We also love the fact that we don't have to valet our car to dine at the restaurant - plenty of parking for everyone. Pros: Juicy, Tasty Meats, Side dish's GALORE ! Cons: none - I'm happy more


price is in the middle the meat is good no pressure from the managers to leave or to make reservations like they do at gauchos village, the place is cozy small family oriented and free parking better then gauchos village ! gauchos village dont go there its a expensive restaurant bad food no service! this place is good nice service from waitress and good food Pros: GOOD FOOD ALL YOU CAN EAT BRAZIELEAN BBQ Cons: SMALL BUFFET NOT TO MANY ITEMS ON BUFFET more
