Rodizio Grill – Los Cabos Magazine #36

Rodizio Grill has been a steak lovers’ mecca since it opened in November, attracting connoisseurs of Brazilian churrasco-style dining with modestly priced all-you-can-eat specials featuring prime Sonoran beef and other meaty pleasures. Chef Luis Rodriguez makes regular appearances tableside with skewered slabs of rib eye, top sirloin, and New York and flank steaks, plus generous portions of chorizo, barbecued ribs, and other grill-finished goodness. All buffet items are custom cooked and sliced to your specifications, then separated by the occasional palate-cleansing slice of grilled pineapple. As an added bonus, Rodizio’s selection of big reds from Argentina, Chile, and Baja California’s own Valle de Guadalupe provide perfect pairing options for the premium cuts. Need to balance out the beef? Ask for second or third helpings of the roasted vegetables or order a Caesar salad from the à la carte menu. And don’t forget to save room for dessert. The fried bananas are delicious. Additional à la carte items include Mexican favorites like tortilla soup, chile rellenos, and quesadillas, as well as dishes showcasing the fresh local seafood.
