Conveniently located in downtown Asheville, Brasilia Churrasco Steakhouse offers much more than a delicious meal. This all-you-can-eat Brazilian barbecue restaurant also serves up an unforgettable experience—making it the perfect addition to any visit to the southern Blue Ridge Mountains.

When we say “bring your appetite” to Brasilia Churrasco Steakhouse, we mean it. Prepare to indulge in a near-endless “parade” of a variety of tender meats, including steak, lamb, chicken, and pork—all carved right at your table by authentic gauchos.

But Brasilia Churrasco isn’t just for meat lovers. It’s also home to an amazing salad bar featuring more than 30 items, including salads, cheeses and cold cuts, jumbo shrimp, and hot sides like mashed potatoes and rice. Not only is everything made fresh daily, but many of the ingredients are sourced from the local farmer’s market. (Not a meat eater? There’s a salad bar-only option.)

Of course, you’ll need something to wash it all down, and Brasilia Churrasco has you covered with an extensive selection of beverages, including everything from Brazilian beers to local beers from Asheville.

Brasilia Churrasco is also an excellent outing for the whole family thanks to affordable pricing for little ones with kids aged 5 and under eating for free. Have a birthday, anniversary, or other special events to celebrate with friends and family members? You won’t find a better spot to gather, relax, and enjoy outstanding food in wonderful company.

The exceptional service at Brasilia Churrasco matches the magnificent meal. Servers take great pride in taking exceptional care of you and will stop by often to inquire about your preferred cuts and make sure you’re satisfied.

While everything we sampled at Brasilia Churrasco was tasty, a few of the items we tried really stood out, including the following:

Filet Medallions with Bacon
The only thing better than a buttery filet? A buttery filet with bacon. Choose from rare to well done, depending on your personal preference.

Parmesan Crusted Pork
We challenge you not to request a second helping of this succulent pork and crunchy, flavorful crust.

Grilled Pineapple
Sweet, refreshing, and the perfect partner to the variety of meats on the menu.

Smoked Salmon
While smoked salmon may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Brazilian barbecue, that just might change after you try Brasilia Churrasco’s smoked salmon. (Find it at the salad bar.)

Brazilian Sangria
Like the grilled pineapple, this thirst-quenching drink is a fruity complement to the salty deliciousness of the meats.

Brazilian Flan
A traditional Brazilian dessert, this creamy custard is so silky-smooth that it literally melts in your mouth.
