Dinner at Chama Gaucha Brazilian Steakhouse

They'll slice it and you'll grab each slice with a pair of nifty little tongs provided at your place setting. Food doesn't stop arriving until you've had enough. Just remember to leave room for a bountiful salad bar with over 30 different items (including exotic cheeses), a selection of desserts, and one of our premium drinks.

Cost: $110 per person
Price includes: Transportation, salad bar, all you can eat sirloin, ribeye, filet mignon, ribs, chicken, pork, sausage, and lamb, dessert, and 1 drink.
