Chima Steakhouse, named after chimarrao, a traditional drink of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, that symbolizes hospitality and friendship-certainly lives up to its name. Legend has it that, in South Brazil traditional gauchos (cowboys) would consume a diet that consisted almost entirely of beef. The meat was seasoned, placed on skewers, and slow cooked over a wood burning flame. Historically, gauchos were known for their generosity and hospitality.
The first Chima restaurant originated in Uberlandia, Brazil located in the state of Minas Gerais. In 2004, the Silva family introduced a new style of dining and superior service to Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Chima combined traditional Brazilian rodizio and excellent service with an elegant setting.

Our Gaúchos (Meat Chefs), proudly wear the typical uniform which includes loose-fitting trousers called bombachas, belted with a tirador, leather boots, an orange scarf, and of course a large knife for carving meats.
Our gauchos roam our dining room continuously, offering an exquisite selection of meats, cooked to order, including picanha (top sirloin), filet mignon, beef ribs, marinated lamb, chicken and fish.
At Chima, every night each Gaucho cooks the meat they serve at your table side to ensure the best taste and quality. Don't forget to ask for your preferred temperature! They are sure to deliver to your expectation.
