Continuing along with some of the restaurants my family and I visited during my first trip down to their new location of Myrtle Beach, SC, I am up to the Rioz Brazilian Steakhouse. This was something that my Father had wanted to try more than Mom did but I am surely not going to argue with being carnivorous.
Historically speaking, I have never been to a Brazilian Steakhouse and while I’ve visited BBQ spots over the years this was something entirely different. We ordered a drink, a Mojito, which was made right in front of us from a little wagon of ingredients. It was cool and the drink super tasty, and very strong. You didn’t want to have more than one of these if you were driving anywhere soon that’s for sure.
So here is a quick idea of how a place like this works. Once you get settled into your table, you are handed a circular cardboard like this one below. It’s sort of like a coaster but its not a coaster and is double-sided with one side saying “Yes Please”……
While the flip side says “No Thank You”…..This is for the servers to know when to stop at your location to give you a piece of whatever it is they have with them. I’ll get back to that stuff soon.
There was also a salad bar but I was warned not to take too much from this area since they were going to load us up with the good stuff. I still decided to take some shrimp since I love those things and some rice and beans.
I added one or two other smaller items to my plate as you can see with the salami slices (another favorite in the cured meat side) and a california roll sushi but now I meant business. It was onto the meatification of my person.
These were bacon wrapped sirloin tips. Wonderful because…..bacon. Need I say more?
I believe this was the filet mignon. I wasn’t taking notes as I gobbled and snapped the occasional photograph. These are all care of my mobile device in case you were wondering. Now you know.
These sausages were amazing. Such rich flavor. I was going to need to walk around their block about eight times after this and that was not going to be easy since it was like 98 degrees out.
This was called “polenta” and it was something that I had never tried before.
Fried bananas which were very tasty.
This was a garlic laden mashed potatoes and I can never have too much of this kind of stuff. Give me a good bit of mashed potatoes any day of the week.
When it was all said and done I had to say that I loved it and I think I have found a favorite place to dine when I am back in SC. Maybe you’ve also been here and if so please let me know what you thought down in the comments section below.
