I’ve been to the ones in Raleigh and Durham. "Chamas", in Durham, is the most 
authentic one, but "Rio" is very good too.  They all take reservations. 


The Triangle has been introduced to a unique and wildly successful casual-
dining experience based on the time-honored Brazilian culinary concept of 
rodizio (progression of all you can eat barbecued meats served at your table). 
A Carrousel of all you can eat mouthwatering meats to suit the taste of just 
about everyone. Prepared and barbecued just the way it’s done in Brazil—in the 
tradition of the gauchos who developed the method in the 16th century—the 
rodizio experience encourages diners to eat at their own pace.

More than 16 different kinds of barbequed meat are carried to your table on 
skewers by passadores who slice selections directly onto your plate. The menu 
traditionally includes lamb, pork, chicken and several different kinds of 
beef, as well as venison, ostrich, ham, ribs, sausages, elk bison, turkey and 
veal. Along with the various meats barbecued over an open pit using natural 
wooden charcoal, comes the grand salad bar and Brazilian hot buffet dishes.  

"The idea is to go, relax and enjoy. You don't have to eat all the meat at the 
same time—you can pick the ones you like. At the salad bar, you can serve 
yourself at your leisure. You control the meat flow with signal cards at your 
table: the red side of the card means, 'Stop' or 'I'm taking a break' 
or 'Please, no more!!!'; the green one means, 'Keep it coming!'"

If you like the idea, we have 3 options here at the Triangle.
