Rodizio Grill(R), America’s First Brazilian Steakhouse(R), to open third location in Tennessee

SALT LAKE CITY, UT–(Marketwired – November 29, 2017) – Rodizio Grill®, will open its third location in Tennessee this Friday, which is located at Hamilton Place Mall in Chattanooga.

“We are thrilled with the success of our downtown Chattanooga location; when the prospect presented itself to open a second location at Hamilton Place mall, we were ecstatic to take the opportunity,” said Carlos Kal, owner of Rodizio Grill Chattanooga. “This location will attract both residents in the eastern suburbs of Chattanooga as well as those traveling along the Interstate 75 corridor. Seating up to 400 guests and offering various semi-private and private dining room space, Rodizio Grill at Hamilton Place will be a convenient and perfect venue for corporate events, social celebrations and family gatherings.”

Established in 1995, Rodizio Grill was the first Brazilian “churrascaria” steakhouse in the United States. Over 20 years later, the brand remains known for its playful Brazilian spirit, authentic menu offerings and family-friendly atmosphere. The unique concept features rotisserie grilled meat, expertly seasoned and carved tableside by traditionally dressed Gauchos. While the meats are the main attraction, they are complemented with an award-winning gourmet salad bar, marked by original salads, fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables, and authentic hot side dishes. Rodizio Grill also boasts an unparalleled selection of real, fresh-pressed juices, homemade Brazilian Limeades, signature cocktails and an extensive wine list featuring a variety of Brazilian imported wines. At the end of the meal, guests can enjoy a selection of exclusive, homemade desserts authentic to the entire experience — a treat not found anywhere else.

“I am beyond thrilled for the opening of our third location in Tennessee, and this location at Hamilton Place is one of our most beautiful locations yet. Our Nashville and Downtown Chattanooga locations are extremely successful, and I have no doubt this new location will become a unique gathering place for friends, family and corporate events set in an atmosphere unlike anywhere else,” said Ivan Utrera, Founder and President of Rodizio Grill.

The 11,000 sq. ft. dining space offers several private and semi-private spaces to accommodate both small and large group dining. The restaurant will also offer patio dining and convenient, ample parking.
