A word from Churrascos - Memorial City
Taking reservations starting December 9th
Brunch will start December 15th

Its namesake – the famed Cordúa Churrasco steak - sparked Houston’s Latin American revelation 25 years ago, and the flame is still burning strong at Churrascos.

The tantalizing menu mixes up native Latin ingredients with the unexpected for a culinary line-up that is as artful as it is delightful, including bacon-wrapped shrimp taquitos, ethereally light angel wings, bahia grilled chicken, yuca fries, and, of course, the award-winning Churrasco – voted one of the best 20 steaks in America by Esquire magazine.

Churrascos is the official caterer of the Houston Texans.

Diner Reviews
  • "My boss took me there for my birthday lunch. I was excited to try this restaurant after seeing their menu. He raved about their steak and desserts. The service was so terrible that the meal wasn't memorable. Having been a server before maybe have put my standards a little high but I expected nothing less from a high class restaurant. We were constantly asking for something we asked for earlier, and the steak wasn't cooked to the temperature requested. I did enjoy my meal overall but would have liked better service along with it."

  • "But, service was minimal. Had to move my own dirty plate upon returning from the buffet. Waiters acted like they didn't really care, except when he saw the tip amount. He opened the bill folder to look at the tip amount right in front of us. (tacky) The restaurant was full, but the food on the buffet was in very small serving platters so were frequently empty. At one point there was NO dessert so I went to the restroom and upon return there still was none. I went to the front desk to request more. I may go back again, but may try another location instead."

  • "Went to Churrascos for our anniversary dinner. The decoration was great. All of the personnel were friendly, polite, and very professional. The wine selection was incredible and the price range is perfect for every budget. The Churrasco was cooked to perfection, just like I ordered it. It was really juicy, tender, and flavorful. Great tasting cut of meat and done right. The noise level was not too bad. I was able to have a conversation without yelling across the table."

  • "Took an out of client there especially for the Churrasco. Ordered two of them medium, both came out well. They are still tender, but not as good as they should be. I would have sent it back had I been by myself, but not on business. It was disappointing."

  • "The food and service was very good. There were several very large crowds and it was hard to hear. I was concerned that with the large groups, service might be slow, but it was not and, for that, I give them credit."

  • "Great location to celebrate my wife's birthday with a group of 8. Wait staff was top notch, food and wine were delicious. Manager is present and checking on guests and their experience. Overall a fantastic evening and I'd recommend highly for anyone. A a great evening had by all."

  • "We had a party of 8 Saturday night for my birthday. Ive have been to your location quite a few times. I have always been a big fan- that is why i chose you for saturday. Our waiter was very difficult to understand so no one really wanted him to elaborate on the specials as it was a difficult process. He was quite slow as well. Especially once we paid - took forever to get back to us. Im pretty blown away that the appetizers we had were $68. He suggested the appitizer trio, I didnt realize that was actually 3 appetizers at full price. It certainly wasnt worth it. Im very upset about that. Im certain our table spent $600+ not to mention the drinks and appetizers at the bar as some arrived at 7pm. Not happy about the experience"

  • "Check this place out for the BEST brunch buffet in Houston! This isn't the "gut buster" that is the norm for brunch - rather they have a broad sampling of high quality, fresh options. The meats and desserts are perfect! Amazing spot for an awesome meal - inspired, tasty and great ambiance! The staff are friendly, attentive and professional."

  • "The food was fabulous as was our service! I had mentioned when I made the reservation on-line that we were celebrating my twins birthday and the waiter had that information upon arrival. We were given a great table in a private area since we were a group of 7. The Churrasco steaks are the best you will find anywhere! Will definitely be returning!"

  • "Food is distinctly ordinary, service is amateur night. Such a weak showing and poor experience that it was almost entertaining as an adventure. Will not go back and never recommend. Not the same as the "old" Churrascos. Good manners prohibit further comment. Skip this overpriced and overrated fumbling disaster."

  • "I went to Churrascos to celebrate my wedding Anniversary. The food was exquisite, a perfect blend from all the flavors that we love. The Opereta de Mariscos (seafood plate) was perfect, creamy garlicky heaven drizzled over a blend of seafood and rice. The sides where perfect as well, rice mamposteao, plantains, yuca, mmm!!!! And the best part was that we were satisfied, but still had enough room for dessert. My husband loved the 3 leches so much that he order an extra one to go. Service was great as well, the staff was welcoming and available without being overwhelming. Make sure that you let them know if it's a special ocasion, they will fire up your dessert."

  • "Sunday brunch, seated at a nice banquette with attentive server. A variety of foods including prime rib and tenderloin with the signature chimichurri sauce & omelets prepared to order. From fish to brussel sprouts, everything was warm, fresh and tasty; there were salads,too. Our server offered 5 made-to-order dishes; the lobster pasta wsas bland but the arepa dish was very good, with crunchy and delicious cracklings on top. We finished off our meal with small tastes of tres leches and flan de queso but couldn't resist ordering the tres leches pancakes which were light and crowd-pleasing. The bottomless mimosas and mojitos added a festive note. We all enjoyed our lunch, especially after learning we got a senior discount!"

  • "I'm used to the upscale quiet dining of the Churrascos on Westheimer or Kirby...this was not that. Everyone was dressed very casual. Tons of children running around. No personal space. The new decor was fabulous. Customer service was horrible! Tables were not cleaned once people left. Had to ask for both a napkin and silverware. How could service be so bad...we actually has two waiters! Of course....they didn't communicate very well. I may go back....but as a throw down with friends...not for an anniversary or for anything nice."

SHOULD HAVE GONE TO GOLDEN CORAL FOR A THIS. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND AND WILL NEVER RETURN. EAT AT LOCATION WESTHEIMER AND GESSNER. LOTS OF ATMOSPHERE, SEPARATE ROOMS FOOD ALWAYS FULL PLEASANT DINING."

  • "This is our first time at this location. Dined at Churrascos in Westheimer and Kirby many times before. We came for Father's Day family brunch. It was the right choice! Ambiance is great for family gathering or dining for two or celebrating with friends. Food quality and selection simply superb!!! So many different kinds that tantalize your taste buds. Can't try them all in one visit! Never-ending mimosas and sangria was an enticement in itself. Service staff were excellent! Courteous, thoughtful, anticipatory and very professional. We're definitely hooked. We will bring our family and out of town guests here all the time now. Our new find added to our few favorites' list"

  • " This MC venue brings some of old POST OAK AMERICA's magic back, the energy, the decor, and as always at a Corazon/Cordúa property--great service. Steaks, ceviche, and clamari were as always delicious. The brussel sprouts w/ tamarind exceptional-thanks for suggesting. I'm really tired of the crab claws not being available-- If Corner table and Trulucks have them this week, the Cordúa boys should be able to maintain access. They had no alcohol free options (mock tails). Being out in Memorial city it would be a nice nod to designated drivers to have a few well thought out options. Still it was everyone's choice for where to go over Capital Grille or RDG -- and its got a great vibe and we'll be back...Wish they could get one downtown!"

Nice to have a restaurant who takes reservations and is good for a group. Food and service were both great - delicious and everything is priced well - no complaints! Will be on our regular rotation for a nice meal out that doesn't break the bank!"

  • "The food was unque and so very well prepared. Everything was decilious, some things were unbelievably good. Josh was our server and he was outstanding. He struck the perfect balance of impecable service without being 'smothering' or uncomfortably underfoot. Truely a great evening. The wine list was well balanced with sufficient options for all in terms of varieties as well as price without being overwhelming. The high top tables were a bit much to sit at gracefully in a dress, but she managed. I guess you could always request a low table when making a reservation. Portions were a good size too, ample without being so large that one feels the need to share an entree or take something home. Very nice experience -- we will be back!"

  • "We were truly blown away by the fabulous food and the service. From the moment we walked in we felt like we were their only diners that night. We were greeted warmly by the hostess, seated by someone else, attended to by a third who delivered drinks and plantains, visited by the first waiter, then waited on by the second. All were friendly, professional, and truly attentive to detail. Oscar graciously refilled our cilantro sauce bowl three times (yes it was that good)! Upon delivering the check, he presented me with a pint of the sauce "on the house" and thanked us for being such fun customers. It was an outstanding experience; our celebration dinner was made that much more memorable by the superb food and service. We will be back!"
