Churrascos - River Oaks
Very Good ExperienceI love the excellent food and service of this place.
I usually have a great time in this place and was expecting another good experience, but I was surprised with a much better experience that before. There were more food options and they were very tasty. Also, they had more servers than usual, which made it very pleasant; we had our glasses of water and drinks refilled without having to ask.
I will increase my frequency of visits to this place.6/16/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional!Perfect! Service, quality and price cannot be beat.6/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways consistent!Love the food at Churrascos. Buffet was a good selection and great price!6/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Brunch for Father's DayWe went to this restaurant for the first time on Father's Day, I made the reservation online, but I still had to wait to be seat about almost 1 hour. The place is small but food was so great and many varieties of dishes for all tastes. Kids enjoy food too. We definitely go again and recommend it to other friends.6/16/2013 12:00:00 AMhome run every timeWhen I go back, I wonder why it has been so long. CERDO MARINERO was fantastic! And for dessert the DELIRIO DE CHOCOLATE was even better! My wife said the coconut ice cream was only so-so, however. Decaf coffee with dessert was great, which is not true in many restaurants. Service almost too attentive; other waiters kept wanting to help ours for plate removal, water refill, chip refills, etc.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMsimple pleasureI absolutely love the 2 dips they offer with the plantain chips and their churrasco steak was fabulous served with grilled veggies keeps me coming back.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a dinner meeting andWe had a dinner meeting and the service was great.

Everyone at the restaurant from the hostess to the waiter were very nice. Service was great as usual and the food was wonderful.
We have brought our 6 and 4 yr old to dinner at Churrascos on Shephard a few occasions and the waiters were always super nice and made my kids feel special. I was surprised Churrascos even has a reasonably priced kids menu.
I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent foodI enjoy dining here not only is the food amazing but the service is great and the atmosphere is relaxing.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodThe food was great, but pricey.

The food is out of this world, and the service is fantastic. One important word about this place-consistent. That's a big deal to me.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGroup Recognition Luncheonfood was excellent; would prefer to make reservation with live person. I put a question in the comment box on the reservation regarding a private room and finally had to call the restaurant to confirm.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat RestaurantService is excellence and the food is outstanding. What I don't like is with Open Table. If you book a restaurant through Open Table you get the dining points, yet if you book it on the restaurant website, even though it directs you to Open Table, you don't get the points. I found this out after losing out on a lot of points by booking on the restaurant website. This is bad practice by Open Table. Learned my lesson.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingThe Parrillada was well worth its money. Two people could eat off a plate that. If you can't decide what you want churrasco, chicken, ribs or sausage, this plate was well prepared and very tasty.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMHighly recommend the ChurrascosHighly recommend the Churrascos steak. Incredibly tender and outstanding flavor.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMMy Favorite Houston RestaurantI love Churrascos. When we have a Birthday or Anniversary this is my first suggestion! Food is excellent.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappoints!Churrascos is still one of my favorite places to have a great Churrascos steak. Their appetizers are also delish!
Try the empanadas and ceviche. And save plenty of room for their tres leches dessert. It's out of this world!!!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMgood food. a bit crowded..I went for Monther's day brunch and we had to waity a bit probably 15 min after our reservation time. The food was good but the line was long the the place was a bit noisy and crowded. I've been to the resturant on other occasions and that has'nt been the case.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently great food and serviceDined here with a party of 4 for Mothers Day. Our server Pedro was awesome! So friendly, yet professional and efficient. His flaming dessert for the Mother was very nice. The sea bass special was perfectly prepared and great tasting and the portion very large. The Churrasco steaks we had and the plantain crusted shrimp were also prepared as ordered and were seasoned nicely and arrived hot from the grill. Thank you for another great dinner service.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlmost 5 StarsMother's Day brunch outing. Food was very good. Limited selection of food actually is a plus because all items were very good. I especially loved the french toast and want to know the recipe! Service was excellent despite the fact that staff seemed a bit overwhelmed because of people that showed up without reservations.
Didn't give five stars because it took more than acceptable time to replace food that ran out on the buffet line. They ran out of beef tenderloin, and it took about 30 minutes to replenish. They ran out of rice and it also took 30 minutes to replenish. They kept running out of cups for the lobster bisque.
It was a nice outing overall. Will return.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious everythingEverything we had from the plantain chips to the steak and lobster were delicious. There isn't one thing that we tried that I didn't absolutely love. Service was prompt and very friendly and helpful. Will definitely be returning to try the rest of the menu.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went there to celebrate,We went there to celebrate, and we had a wonderful dinner.

The Churrasco steak is the standout but everything on the menu is delicious.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMDue to traffic we were 10Due to traffic we were 10 minutes late to the reservation but the hostess was very kind and had held our table.
The meal was very good, the Sierena (plaintian encrusted shrimp) was delicious, very unique. The service was a bit slow, but the waiter was very accomodating when asked to substitute vegetables for the french fries. As always the steak was outstanding, almost able to cut with a fork!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMChurrascos never disappoints!It was a beautiful evening to sit out on the patio and enjoy great food. The crab appetizer was outstanding and the tres leches is always a must for dessert! It's my girlfriend favorite restaurant so we'll be back quite often.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMNever DisappointedVisit was for the River Oaks location. The restaurant is a nice, quite place to enjoy dinner with a group of friends and family, or for a romantic evening out. I have been to this location several times and I have never gone away disappointed with the food or the service. The Pollo Encamisado is fantastic. Neither my wife or I drink, so I cannot comment on the wine.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed a very delicious lunchEnjoyed a very delicious lunch while still being reasonable in price.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBoth the food and serviceBoth the food and service are outstanding. This is one of our favorite restaurants and we are fortunate to have the privilege of dining all over the world. If we only were able to dine at one restaurant in Houston Churrascos, especially for their monthly wine dinner, would be the one. The service is personable and knowledgeable. We leave happy and find ourselves talking about the delightful experience for days afterwards. If you love food this is the place to try, it will become a favorite.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMThe meat dishes were preparedThe meat dishes were prepared perfectly! The pairing with the wines was excellent too.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Easter brunch was wellThe Easter brunch was well worth it. Delicious food, terrific service. We love the place and will be back again and again.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMChurrascoExcellent food and service. Never disappointed after a visit to this location.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMEarly dining is quiet, deliciousWe ate early and really enjoyed the slow pace (this is what we wanted) and the delicious food (steaks for the girls, fish for the boys). We ate all our vegetables, too, except for a couple of pieces. Everything was very nicely prepared and tasty. Easy to find a great wine, even by the glass.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Fish and Seafood!!This is a very cozy place, for lunch or dinner with the family, quiet. Are characterized by a excellent attention and innovative presentations of their dishes. The food was very tasty, in special we can recommend the seafood and fish. We also tried their famous Churrasco, but that was a little disappointing, in terms of quality and preparation, but everything else, appetizers, main dishes (fish or seafood) and desserts were good. The coffee was delicious, say that they bring to Nicaragua the herbal tea also very rich.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyableWas looking for some where special for our anniversary. My wife loved it.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMSouth American GemChurrascoes certainly lived up to it's Zagat guide rating! The food was delicious, (we came in Sunday for brunch) the wait staff was friendly and attentive, and the ambiance and decor was certainly upscale. These combinations made the visit for three definitely worth the price. I would RSVP here again!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is my favorite restaurant.This is my favorite restaurant. It is my fall back for special occasions. I love the food. I think it is getting a bit to expensive for regular weekly dinning. If prices were 20% lower we would probably week every 1-2 weeks!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Steaks are High on my ListIf you are looking for an outstanding steak, this is the place for you! I'm not sure I ever order anything else but steak because they know how to cook them the way you order them. Always tender, always juicy, and always perfectly the way I want it! It is a great place to go if you want to have an intimate evening and be able to talk and hear each other above the din. If it's medical advice you seek, this seems to be a big hangout for the medical community. The food must be healthy! The staff is always first rate and our waiter did not disappoint.3/7/2013 12:00:00 AMCame early. Had the shrimpCame early. Had the shrimp spoons and salad. Both excellent choices. BUT the topper was the cookies leches. OH MY - I could not believe the texture and meltability of this decadent dessert.2/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
