Best Rodizio in Miami: Area Code 55 (Pictures)

Area Code 55 in Aventura should really be called Country Code 55. They serve, in my estimation, the best rodizio in Miami. That is, meat and salads galore -- all you can eat -- Brazilian style. If you expanded your stomach on Thanksgiving and need to keep munching, this is the place!

The place is friendly and packed with Brazilians. It has the top salad bar in these parts, great service and costs a reasonable $12.95 for kids. Adults go a stiffer $30 for dinner, but it is well worth it. Drinks, desserts and tip extra.

We headed over yesterday for my daughter's ninth birthday. Still feeling the effects.
