I stopped in today for a half pound of garlic picania and churrasco and they were grilled to perfection, even meeting Captain Rick’s high standards. The meats, cooked to order, were well seasoned, juicy and tenderlicious.
The owners, Aly and Joel Lombillo, opened their Brazilian steak truck about two weeks ago after their lease at FIU was up. LUCKY FOR PINECREST!!!!! Joel hails from Uruguay but knows his way around churrasco.
The menu offers a nice selection of meats including filet mignon (con bacon if you like), chorizo, lomo and Costilla. Sides include pure de papa, maize and arroz y frijoles. Meets are sold by the half or full pound and range from $8.99 to $14.99 a pound and they have a daily special for $9.99 that includes 1/2 lb of libra de carne con arroz y frijoles.
They deliver for $3.00, take orders via phone, accept credit cards for orders over $10, give discounts to students and officers and are open from 11:30 am to 11:00 pm. This is amazing because what restaurant stays open after 9:00 on a weekday in Pinecrest? El Toro Loco also caters parties starting at $30 per person and offers white cloth service and a full bar.
El Toro Loco Churrascaria 6603 South Dixie Hwy. 305-970-4824
