A quote from Rainhas Churrascaria’s management:
“During our 10 year anniversary, we decided to think about how we wanted to reintroduce outdoor dining to our guests. As time passed, we saw the effects on the new inflationary environment and we wanted a more affordable option for our valued guests. We realized skirt steak was the most popular item on the rodizio, so we thought can we open a stand-alone restaurant on this one item. Simply Skirt Steak, an Argentinian Steakhouse was born,” stated Karel Hernandez, General Manager of Rainhas Churrascaria.
