The best thing I did was I called ahead & made a reservation I had the receptionist make a note needed GF When I got to the restaurant, I was assigned my own personal meat server who only brought GF meats for me! I had an awesome experience.😊I'll be going again!

Not much in the salad bar is GF. Most of the meat is listed on the menu as GF, but when I asked about the teriyaki beef(which wasn't even listed on the menu), they didn't know if it was GF, even the cook wasn't sure. They brought out two meats at a time, so they were touching, and one of the meats wasn't GF, but because it was touching the other one, we couldn't eat that one either! The knives they use to cut the meat off the skewer is the same knife they use all night for all the meats. When they finish one meat, they just dip the knife in a big bucket of water and then use it on the next type of meat. Lots of cross contamination going on here.

They keep everything clean and orderly. Their gluten free items are delicious! Their food is fresh and appetizing to look at. Their meat selection offers many gluten free items too. Very highly recommended!

their online menu does have gluten free items marked, but they did absolutely nothing to prevent cross contamination. I got so so so sick!! the establishment has already been contacted, will update on my next visit (sadly a Christmas tradition) I would recommend going to the SLC location if possible!

Love going to this chain. I had an awesome waiter. He would bring the fresh food straight from the grill before going to any other tables. First eating at this one. I will definitely be going back nest time I am in town. I didn’t have any issues with the salad bar either.

I've never spit out picanha before my meal today. Meat tasted old and unseasoned. I pretty much only ate pineapple from the skewers because the 4 meats I tried just weren't good. I would rather pay more and have better quality meat because it tasted off.

They don't serve chimichurri sauce. They do have a large salad buffet with labeled items that are gluten free. Some items are labeled gluten free on the buffet but aren't listed as gluten free (ex: pineapple, vegetables) on their online menu for this location. Not sure which to trust.

The restaurant smelled weird, like BO when we walked in. I don't know if the carpet is dirty or what but we should have left. There were two large parties with a toddler rolling on the floor with blankets and bottles almost tripping the waiters. Just know the clientele is the kind who let their kids wander around.

The hallway to the restrooms are lined with a ton of stacked chairs. Makes it feel like a storage unit rather than a restaurant. Also, I'm 5'9 and noticed that the toilet seat covers are located above my shoulder, even in the handicapped stall. I don't know how they expect someone in a wheelchair to reach the seat covers that are placed that high.

One star for the nice staff and the pão de queijo, but I absolutely would not recommend this place.

I had an amazing experience. I had been there prior to my CD diagnosis so I knew what to do. On my reservation I put the need for gluten free items. My waitress was amazing and so were all the people bringing out the meats. They were able to tell me what to try and what to stay away from. The salad bar items and apps are also marked glutrn free. The one thing I noticed was the knives used to portion out the meats might be an area of cross contamination. I did not have a reaction and it's been about 30 hours since my visit.
