Espetus Churrascaria Restaurant Review

Posted by Foodnut.com, November 24th, 2014

Espetus Churrascaria Exterior

Espetus Churrascaria is a Brazilian steakhouse serving Rodizio style food. They focus on meats straight from the fire brought to your table, continuously through the meal! You can stop the meat parade by flipping the table card to red. They have a salad and hot plate bar with lots of different options including asparagus, bean salad, eggplant, rice, beans, cod, and much more. Do not eat too much of this stuff otherwise you wonder have room for all the meat. Vegetarians should stay away.
Espetus Churrascaria has locations in San Francisco and San Mateo. We tried the brand new San Mateo location for dinner. It is all you can eat, with lunch going for $25.95 with 7 meat options, $37.95 on weekends. Dinner is $54.95 with 14 meat options. Kids are 50% off. Our last visit was in the Summer of 2014.

Three Restaurant and Bar San Mateo exterior decor

Why did we dine here? – Three Restaurant and Bar used to known as Astaria, but morphed in the summer of 2013. More casual, small plates, food to share. A concept that we have to agree is more attractive. They use products from sustainable farms and ranches and have kept some of the old favorites. Food gets served as it is ready. Our last visit was in 2015. Three is located next door to the Entrepreneur focused Draper University. They also share their bathroom, so chit chat with future bigwigs.
