Established in 1995, Rodizio Grill The Brazilian Steakhouse, or Churrascaria, was founded by Ivan Utrera who brought this popular Brazilian concept, along with cherished family recipes, from his hometown of São Paulo, Brazil. Though it was an unusual concept here in the United States, it quickly caught hold and became a favorite for those who love good food and a fun atmosphere.

“Much like the Cajun culture here in Lafayette, the Brazilian culture is warm, hospitable and fun — it truly embodies what we call the ‘joie de vivre’ (love of life) spirit,” said Phil Devey, partner of Rodizio Grill Lafayette. “Founded upon these values, Rodizio Grill welcomes guests with warmth and ‘alegria’ (joy) to enjoy authentic Brazilian cuisine served with excellence. This experience is unlike any other, and I’m so excited to share with our community.”

Rodizio Grill is located at 4243 Ambassador Caffery Parkway on the corner of Ambassador and Settlers Trace near Whole Foods Market. For more information, visit Sign up for Club Rodizio to be the first to learn of Grand Opening details:
