FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) — It’s a meat-eaters paradise at Chima Brazilian Steakhouse in Fort Lauderdale.

The selection of cooked-to-order, served at your table rotisserie meats is an eye-opener to any hungry diner.

It’s all the meat you can eat and more at Chima, the hipster Brazilian Steakhouse in Fort Lauderdale.

In fact, customers can have up to 16 types of rotisserie selections of beef in one serving.

“Chima is a great Brazilian restaurant. As any Brazilian restaurant, it’s based on the Rodizio which means rotation. You have our Gauchos coming around the table with the meat and they deliver the meat to your plate personally,” explained Chima’s General Manager Eric Laseur.

But Chima is not only for carnivores.

“There are 28 different types of salads so you don’t have to eat meat. You can have a huge salad and we also do fish,” said Laseur.

The sumptuous salad bar can be bought with the full meat meal or alone for $36.50. It’s a power pile on that includes 2 fish selections.

But the real “meat” of this story is the meat!

Customers receive a Chima token. When you want meat, you flip to the orange-colored ‘yes’ side. When you’re done and can’t eat any more meat, just flip the Chima token to its black-colored ‘no’ side.

CBS4’s Lisa Petrillo said ‘yes’ to both the grilled salmon and the lamb chops.

“The salmon is lovely. It’s flaky, tender and soft,” she described while enjoying her meal. And the lamb chops, “So juicy and tender. I love the way they are seasoned. Delicious!”

When the Gaucho came back with a Cajun rib eye steak, Petrillo flipped her chip to the ‘no’ side because she wanted to save room for dessert.

Chima is open 7 days a week for dinner only except for Mother’s Day when they are open for lunch and dinner.
