This churrascaria, or Brazilian steakhouse, serves food Rodizio style; continually presenting different cuts of meat until the patrons are finished eating. The word espetus means skewer - which is inspired by the cooking techniques of Brazilian Gauchos in the 1800s. The meats are sliced at the table and include options like pork sausages, slow-roasted Brazilian herb chicken, and top sirloin. They also have an extensive salad bar with traditional Brazilian side dishes. The meals are served all-you-can-eat style; just turn the chip on your table to the green side to be served, and to the red side when you are done.

Izzy Gomez's story typifies that of living the American dream. The Portuguese native headed to San Francisco with nothing but passion, and in 1987, Izzy's Steaks & Chops opened its doors in the heart of Marina neighborhood on the birthday of the man himself. Steak is the main draw here, although there are excellent seafood and chops made from market-fresh ingredients. Their bar prides itself on creative concoctions and an impressive list of spirits. This restaurant has much of a traditional boys club feel to it. With dim lighting, no-nonsense service and lacquered fish among lots of San Francisco memorabilia donning the walls, this is a quintessential example of an American steakhouse and promises an unrivaled experience in the Bay Area. It also claims that many times artists have bartered one of their paintings for the sake of a meal here. Today, these artworks are part and parcel of the eatery's decor. Now, what would you trade for dinner?
