The food was tasty, the selection was broad and included chicken and Turkey. The turkey was dry, its a tough meat to do this way. the Garlic steak was the best. I would have liked to see other cuts above Sirloin. Given the price, I was a bit disappointed by that. In general, the meat was pretty good, low on fat and grizzle, but sometime needed more seasoning. Might be a personal preference. the sides were nice, and Servers were very nice.

Meats were great as always - but miss the wide open salad bar/sides.

I’ve been here previously and the food was great. Flavorful. This time, however, something was off- just wasn’t as flavorful and several of the meat selections were over cooked/dry. Aside from that the staff was pleasant.

Not the same since covid. Removed the center salad and sides bar. Food was rushed at us. Wasn’t comfortable. I’ll just go to a regular steak house. Same price , better quality meat.

Have been to other Brazilian steakhouses in the U.S. - most have nicer ambiance inside.
Rios is in Nazareth, PA, so the whole area is very rural and low-key. Brazilian steakhouses typically have very nice salad bars, though Covid eliminated these. Food quality and presentation was not as good as other Brazilian steakhouses.

Loved this place , I just feel the servers need to tell people how it works . It caused a lot of frustration and delay on both sides to those who have never been.

We had heard about this restaurant for years but never tried it until yesterday. We have been missing out! The food was fantastic and the service was just as complementary.

The food was delicious (not just the meat, the sides too!), the servers were attentive and offered to bring meats you particularly liked; the server was attentive as well with drinks and seeing if you needed anything; and the ambience gave you comfortable family feel. The drinks were delicious too. Will absolutely be coming back!

First time dining there since the pandemic shutdown. Tables are nicely spaced for social distancing and there is an outdoor dining area as well. Salad bar is no longer available but salads and sides are served family style on the table which I actually enjoyed better. The food was EXCELLENT, as always.

Always a great time. Took my neice And nephew for their birthdays. It was their first time. We don't go often but seems every time we go the price increases drastically. So we go for special occasions. I don't feel like they came around with the right temp meat for my husband who says he had a good time but didn't get his medium rate as he'd hoped for.

They offered a nice treat for the kiddos for bday. Our server Sarah was great.

Food is good, but they come out with the different options so fast you feel rushed eating your meal. We went at 4 pm on a weeknight and were the only ones there. Sad to realize all the food that gets wasted. Parking is an issue. They now have a tent set up in the front of the parking lot for outdoor dining so you have to drive around the block and access the parking lot through an alley in the rear.

Not somewhere that I'll go frequently.

The food was very good and service was fine. There is no way for the large space to absorb the sound and there was a large noisy group who made it difficult for my husband and I to talk, and even for us to hear the servers. Otherwise we enjoyed our dinner and would recommend it for a good meal, but not for a date.

We had a wonderful dinner at Rios. The service was wonderful. We arrived a little early and was seated right away. We were served our drinks and salad and side dishes right away and then the different meats started coming right after. Excellent timing, Excellent Food.
I would highly recommend this restaurant!

I was a little disappointed that our waitress did not offer or bring all the side choices for us to try. And then was not easy to find to request things that we saw other tables were receiving. We never got plantains, cheese bread, or French fries, while all the other tables around us had them. Other than that, the men delivering the meat, were excellent and all of the food we did get to try was very good.

Been here multiple times. Last time service was not great. Server came twice to my table when I was there for 2 hours. Other servers had to refill our drinks (water). I came to eat picanha and only got it twice after asking for it. Also, the young kids cutting the steaks did not understand “no” after I already got the first cut of meat. Resulting in me wasting the food. Also they never told me the temperature of the meat. I always had to ask. Like I said I been here before and it’s been great. The young staff is very inexperience.

We had not been to Rios since the pandemic. They have really up'd their game! The last time we were there they did not have pork ribs nor lor shoulder. Those additions, and the standard offerings, were absolutely delicious!
Even though they don't have the buffet where you serve yourself, the wait staff is very generous getting everything you need, i.e. rice, beans, potato salad, chicken salad, mashed potatoes, and more.

Cant wait to go back!

While visiting Poconos with my family for my moms birthday, I wanted to take them all out for dinner. Even though Rios was almost 40 min away I trusted the great reviews and drove out there. The food was great ! The service was outstanding. Even though it was a full house tonight the tables are spread out enough to feel safe and follow all covid guidelines. I would definitely come back next time I am visiting. Hopefully I can add to other great reviews and support this local business through tough times during COVID.
