BEST RESTAURANT TO TAKE YOUR PARENTS
2400 E. Las Olas Blvd., Fort Lauderdale; 954-712-0580; ChimaSteakhouse.com
While your parents hit the buffet hard and marvel at the parade of meat dishes that come to your table every 10 minutes or so at this Brazilian steakhouse, you can enjoy a couple of nerve-soothing caipirinhas or chimarraos, which is what the restaurant is named after. The service here is rodizio-style, which means the wait staff (or in this case, “gauchos”) roam through the restaurant with 15 rotisserie meats including top sirloin, filet, ribs, lamb, pork, chicken, sausage and fish. You can choose what you want from the kinetic, all-you-can-eat buffet or you can stick to the salad bar, which also includes soups, grilled fish and a handful of hot dishes.
