$13-18 per entree with the appetizers around the $10 range. Seems expensive at first but it's cheap for what you get. LARGE quantities of food and really, really nice steaks (like, steak steak) and sausages for $15. It's a deal.
In the LA Fitness shopping center near the El Camino Real and Encinitas Blvd. intersection. 5-10 minutes away for most Encinitas residents.
This place is a hidden gem in Encinitas. I live in constant fear of it shutting down because it's just so dang tasty and I don't understand how they can offer steaks for so cheap.
Whatever. Point being: it's good. Really good. And definitely different from your typical meat and potatoes kind of experience. Everything has a Brazilian spin to it. Brazilian spices on the meat, beans and rice on the side, etc...
I would say if there's one drawback it's the location. It's kind of strange and out of the way. The inside is nicely decorated but the bright lights don't really make for a romantic atmosphere if you're picky about that kind of thing.
But definitely a place worth trying. The food makes for great take out but it's also worth dining in if you're in the mood for some tasty cocktails.
