Espetus Churrascaria, San Francisco, CA

Espetus Churrascaria Restaurant Review

: Meat-lovers rejoice at Espetus, a traditional churrascaria complete with the continual parade of meats on giant skewers throughout the dining room, and little red and green wheels that signal bring it on or please stop. Lively Brazilian music, pleasant lighting and a friendly staff warm the narrow space. Diners are invited to visit the salad bar, with all of the starchy sides and superfluous vegetables, but we recommend sticking to the meat. The cavalcade is more than enough to sate even the most monstrous of appetites: tender sirloin rimmed with a caramelized ribbon of fat; plump house-made sausages; slow-roasted chicken; almost every cut of pork; and turkey wrapped in bacon. The restaurant offers dessert including a moist tres leches cake.
