First Time-Now I'm Hooked! – I came across Betchee's during my business day, and stopped in. I've never had Brazilian cuisine before, but, was pleasantly surprised. It's like a little bit of Rio-from the little shop where you can buy Brazilian products to the lunch buffet that cost me around $10-I was very pleased with the variety-and the aromas in the restaurant made me forget I was sitting right off I-75! The owner told me she's hosting a Brazilian Mardi Gras on the property in May, and is bringing in a Brazilian band for an authentic Brazilian festival! I can't wait. The owner explained to me that during her recent absence she left the restaurant in the hands of several individuals who weren't as passionate about the restaurant as she is-and now she's back and planning to expand the restaurant to include outdoor seating. Betchee, I'll be back!
Horrible waste of life – I have never been one to write reviews. However the lack of quality of the food here has inspired me. I am usually a very easy going restauranteer. Especially when it comes to buffets. I understand there is a certain aspect of buffets since quantitiy is involved. But that point is entirely defeated if you can not bare to eat the food.
Truthfully I ate here because of all the wonderful reviews. They must not have had the buffet. The best part of the restaurant was the guarana soda and they had a big screen TV with brazillian footbal. That is it.
Can I give less than 1 star? Horrible food, WOW! – Your options for the buffet include:
sausage (cut up hotdog mixed with onions)
black beans - these weren't so bad
white rice (served cold)
Fajita meat? its not hot, it was tough and had no flavor
various fried items with meat inside- if you get lucky to choose the pork one, then it is edible. Of course nothing is labeled so you really have no idea what you are eating and you will probably regret it later.
The salad was edible if you aviod the salad dressing
I am guessing the only way they stay open is that they have a gift shop in the front to sell junk.
There is no way that these other reviews are real...
this has to be the worst resturant in Richardson
Authentic Brazilian - Relaxed atmosphere and Excellent food! – Excellent food and value - Paying by-the-pound for a buffet is unusual for american diners, but is a typical brazilian experience - the food here was wonderful, the variety excellent, the atmosphere relaxed and authentically Brazilian - I had the sunday afternoon lunch buffet with my family (and our Brazilian exchange student) and we all loved our meals. Reasonable prices, (all-u-can-eat is also an option here) and convenient location near I-75.
We will be back!
TERRIBLE FOOD, TERRIBLE FOOD – Found restaurant off citysearch. Food was Cold and was not labled. Food was so bad, no flavor. The TWO meat dishes were only tough chicken and cold pork. Here is the best if you want any dessert IT NOT included in the price, they'll charge you an additional $6.99 per pound. I should have known when including me and my wife only 4 people were eating. I asked the waiter what something was on the buffett, his answer,"Sorry I dont know". I cannot believe the other reviews...they had to have been written by the owners of the restaurant.
The Best Brazilian Restaurant in the metroplex, definitely worth the drive, great atmosphere! – Delightful spanish atmosphere generally filled with Brazilian locals. The food is just beyond expectations, which is probably why Brazilians and Americans looking for that exotic experience, flock to this wonderful restaurant.
Great Brazilian Food – Great Brazilian food and excellent prices. Just about the best price to get good food, with a great variety, at affordable prices. The buffett allows you to have some of everything. Don't limit yourself to one plate. Don't wait for your food. Go to Brazil Brasileiro.
Wonderful home-made Brazilian food, world-class service, and great prices!!! – My family and I love Brazil Brasileiro and highly recommend it to everyone we meet. We always enjoy the buffet, where we get a home cooked meal that reminds us of when we lived in Salvador, Bahia. And for the price, you can't beat it. Delicious home cooked meats, fishes, chicken, stews, and vegetables made brazilian style. The staff is very friendly and makes you feel right at home. The restaraunt is very clean and the large projector screen shows beautiful pictures of the Brazilian scenery and soccer matches. We've brought several friends here and all tell us that they go back regularly.
As authentic as it gets – Great place! Great for a group (especially when there is a futbol game on). Also very nice for an intimate dinner especially on Frid. nights with live brasilian music. I go here all the time, so do the Brasilians. Just like you would find in Brasil.
Great tasting day-to-day homemade food – This is my first time writing a review here at citysearch but I can't pass the opportunity to recommend this restaurant in which I eat lunch with my boss two or three times per week. I love this restaurant not only because I am from Venezuela and love latin food, but also because it is an island of homemade food on a sea of fast-food industrial-tasting restaurants. There hasn't been one plate that I haven't liked it.
It is a buffet style restaurant. Different from other standard restaurants, when you enter, you walk directly to the buffet line and fill up your place with food. At the end of the line they weight your plate and you are given a number. After you are done eating you take your number and go to the cashier to pay.
I usually come in thinking "ok, I won't fill up my plate this time", but every time I fill it up and end up eating bigger portions than my diet permits. It really doesn't matter because it is healthy food and it is too good to pass.
They also do catering. They actually did my wedding's catering and it was a great success.
If you are in a rush you can use a To-Go box instead of a plate.
Bottom line, this is a really good and healthy place to eat and deserves at least one try as a minimum. You won't be disappointed and will want to go back.
