As the Summer Olympics come to a conclusion with their first week of games, people around the globe are soaking in the Brazilian vibes by sipping on tropical caipirinha, dancing a little samba, slipping into that itsy, bitsy, teenie-weenie bikini and of course noshing on some mouth watering Latin American cuisine. It’s no surprise, considering Dallas’ love affair with grilled meats that it has its own fair share of Brazilian restaurants  known as churrascaria.
