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
  • "Came for HRW for lunch. Started with the complimentary banana chips and dips. Yum! Had the mixed greens salad with cilantro dressing. Was very tasty. Then had the Churrascos filet of beef. It was very tender and flavorful. The entree included a plate of various beans and rice, plantain, and various vegetables. Did not leave hungry. Will definitely go back again!"

  • "We love Churrascos and this one is closer to us but this new design is not as appealing. The chairs are hard to move when you sit down and need to get up. The whole place just seems cold and uninviting. The food is still just as good."

  • "We had made reservation for 4 the resturant week menu looked interesting on paper $35 for 3 courses . Great price point , but 2 of the appetizers 1 was calamari calamari itself was delish but added jalapeño and lots of cabbage as a filler 2nd was bread bowl bean soup, this was not a soup by any means it was literally beans in a bread bowl ! mediocre for the style of resturant and their regular price menu . The main courses where as espected great !! steak meat and the seafood Entry where stellar ! That being said at $35 per person can't ask for much moor !"

  • "Food was great! This location is new.....very hip and trendy decor. The only issue was with our waiter. He was slow and could not remember things. We asked for more plantain chips and never got them. We ordered two glasses of wine....waited 15 minutes and never got them. I had to remind the waiter....then we had to wait another 8 minutes before we got them. We literally stopped eating because we were waiting on the wine. We asked for the ticket.....the waiter brought the wrong ticket! He never apologized nor compensated us for the problems we experienced."

  • "My Wife and I both ordered the 8 oz Chararsco , I got one half the size of her steak. Both were over cooked. It was HRW, and the place was packed. Waiters were not getting food out timely. Expensive medicore night."

  • "Seven of us dine every Friday evening. Our evening at Churrascos was most enjoyable. Hector, our waiter, was perfectly suited to our group -- we had fun together from the moment he introduced himself. The HRW menu was extensive and we all enjoyed our selections. There wasn't a bad bite at the table! We all agreed that we will return in the future. We had a wonderful evening!"

  • "I've dined at this location 3 times now since their opening. Regardless of my group size 12, 5 or 2 service was great. Today I had the Lomo Latino tender and flavorful steak. But I've never eaten anything I didn't adore"

  • "We went for Restaurant Weeks and enjoyed every minute and every bite. Not only was the buffet a vast array of deliciousness but you could also order from the brunch menu! Which of course we did and had the brioche cubes dipped in ice cream, lightly fried and topped with candied pecans and syrup with a dulce de leche mouse on the side! Every bite was a little piece of heaven."

  • "I loved everything but my steak. It was listed as a tenderloin but was obviously skirt or flank. I could barely cut through it even though I ordered it medium. Other than that our salads and side dishes were wonderful!"

  • "Had dinner here with my sister and mother and had a really nice time. The food was really good. I always have loved the Churrasco and the vegetables served with it. The restaurant has a good vibe and is nicely decorated. My only complaint is that our server had too many tables, which is why service got three stars. He was a really good waiter, but when you have a 10 top and 4 four tops, it is really difficult to give 1st class service, which should be expected with $25 - $35 entrees."

  • "It was a Thursday night, loud, crowded, slow but courteous service. My food was over cooked and not much flavor. My friend said hers was good, which I tasted and didn't agree. Very disappointed overall. However, the empanadas were still excellent!"

  • "I have been to Churrascos Memorial City twice now. Each time I had excellent waiters and the food was excellent. Also since I had to wait for a second party, the waiter brought me some banana chips which I made waiting a lot easier. The restaurant has great ambiance and each time I go, I am thinking about who can I introduce this restaurant too next. And I don't think you could find better waiters anywhere."

  • "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."

  • "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"

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!"
