This is not fast food where you go for a quick meal so sit back, enjoy the slow pace and savor the unique flavors of churrasco cooking. Ready for a unique dining experience? Feast on authentic Brazilian style grilled meats and side dishes.
A Genuine Brazilian Churrascaria
A “Churrascaria” is Brazilian [aka Portuguese] for steakhouse or rotisserie. Churrasco is a cooking style, which translated from the Portuguese means ‘barbecue’ or grilled – either over charcoal or wood embers.

They are open for lunch and dinner with “unlimited” meats, salad bar (with more than 40 items) and hot side dishes such as rice and mashed potatoes. The drinks and desserts are extra.

Sangria can be prepared 101 different ways but their version rocks. So does their “Golden Margarita“!
Last night, with all year-end festivities over and everyone home ready for back to work and back to school, we decided to have dinner at the Charbroil Grill Brazilian churrascaria in Potomac Mills.
At 6:30 pm, we had the restaurant nearly to ourselves but I can imagine that on weekends, it is a busy place.

Enjoy A Real Churrasco Style Meal!
Did I mention that dinner is preceeded by a nice little dish full of yummy hot Pão de Queijo?
These Brazilian cheese puffs are easy to make at home!
Light as a feather, these little morsels are way too easy to eat, especially when you have no idea what waits at the salad bar!
Enjoy the cheese puffs, the salad bar variety before you even think of the main course – which is the endless selection of grilled meats. Don’t turn that little coaster from red to green until you’re ready 🙂
My personal favorites? The leg of lamb and grillled salmon with orange sauce. It made an appearance during the salad course.
To start dinner, as part of my salad course, I picked marinated mussels, mushrooms and a version of a Greek salad with cucumbers, red onions and Feta cheese crumbles. Shrimp too!
Green lettuce and all the salad fixings are there if you prefer a more traditional “salad”.
Variations on the all you eat salad selections that include soups!
Seriously – eat your salad but leave lots of room for churrasco style meats.
The salad course would have been enough for me but I had no clue what was waiting in the wings- all of it scrumptious.
