Bringing the Tri-Cities an Authentic Brazilian Grill Our Story

Hello and Welcome!

We are Hélio Vieira and Josiane Ballin, owners of Boiada Brazilian Grill. We are both from the south of Brazil and have been friends for many years. It wasn’t until 2017, however, that we discovered we had the shared dream of owning a Brazilian steakhouse.

We had many conversations about growing up in Brazil and wanting to bring the all-you-can-eat fine dining experience we enjoyed to other communities. We researched a number of markets and after careful consideration, chose the Tri-Cities for opening our restaurant and fulfilling our dreams, and we couldn’t be more thrilled!

About Us

Hélio - I have been in the restaurant business since 2004. I started my restaurant career in the kitchen of a Brazilian steakhouse and worked my way up to general manager, all the while holding onto my dream of restaurant ownership.

Josiane - My background, on the other hand, is in project management. I have worked within a number of industries including education, oil & gas, and non-profits, all while waiting for the right restaurant opportunity.

We have found that opportunity and are thrilled to be fulfilling our dream here in the Tri-Cities and bringing you our mission, vision, and values for an authentic Brazilian fine-dining experience.
