Dallas' original churrascaria Brazilian steakhouse – where gauchos haul around dripping hunks of meat – is still going strong, catering to hordes of men from the high-tech corridor. In fact, at lunch you might get run over by a gaucho zipping to someone's table in the packed dining room. The meats – from leg of lamb to filet mignon to neatly skewered chicken legs – are always good, with the juicy sirloin scoring as our favorite. You pay one price for as much meat as you can handle, plus a lavish salad bar. The salad selections, though, are a slight notch below some of the area's other churrascarias, which means they're still very good. Any meat lover will leave happy.
