  • "I had an amazing birthday dinner with my family and friends. The food was delicious, wine was so good, and the service was amazing. I can't wait to go again. The empanadas were the best I've ever had actually for an appetizer. And it was so hard to choose my main entree becuse everthing sounded tasty."

  • "I took a small group of people there last weekend for dinner and everyone was very impressed with the quality of the food, the service and the overall atmosphere. My wife and I have been going there for years, but some of our friends were there for the first time. I think Curasscos made some new customers for life. They were so impressed, they ordered four meals to go with them along with some cookbooks. :-)"

  • "The food at Churrasco's is not as good as it used to be. I ordered the lamb special on Saturday and requested it be served medium rare. It came well done and dry. The only reason I didn't send it back was because then I would have been eating dinner by myself since the rest of my party had been served their food. I was very disappointed, to say the least."

  • "Great for family celebrations. We celebrated my husband's retirement with our family and left feeling exhilarated."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "I made a reservation for a party of 6 for dinner on a Saturday night and we had to wait almost 30 minutes past our time. The bar is literally right next to tables so you feel like you are on top of people invading their space. The food was good but very pricey for the experience and portion size. It was more like tapas for a full size dinner price. I honestly would rather have gone to Texas de Brazil. Somewhat disappointing! I doubt I will ever go back. Lunch seems to be more reasonable if you want to try this place."

  • "We had a good Sunday brunch at churrascos. The endless drinks at 12$/person and good selection of buffet dishes (along with amazing dessert) made our trip to churrascos wonderful. Parking was easy. Overall it was a wonderful brunch."

  • "This place has not missed a beat in years. Consistent and excellent Service was above and beyond. Great night!"

  • "Among many delicious choices, the angel wings appetizer and Churrascos steak dinner with Tres Leches cake for dessert is my favorite. Consistently delicious with excellent service."

  • "Always good....first time I could not finish my choice"
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "I have always had a 5 Star experience at this restaurant; however, this experience was extremely disappointing. The demand for buffet food items exceeded the restaurant's ability to supply those items; consequently, diners had to keep checking to see whether food was available. Service was not what I have grown accustomed to, mediocre at best. I have no idea what happened on this day but it was not what I expected after having driven over three hours to take my family to brunch."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "This once excellent restaurant chain contniues to disappoint me. The food was mediocre for what you pay. I had the lobsterand scallops and my scallop were clearly overcooked. I went through their wine list and they were out of my first two choices, so I had to settlle for my third. If you really want a good upscale meal with a Latin flavor Hugo's is still the best choice in Houston."

  • "We went here with no expectations since it was Valentine's Day. It was recommended from a server at Americas in The Woodlands. Service did start off slow, but after he got caught up from a rush he was very attentive and the service was really good. The atmosphere was a little less than what we expected, but overall the food was good. I like the plantain chips instead of bread, so you don't fill up so much (which I often do). I had Ceviche for an appetizer and was quite surprised at how good it was. My husband and I both had steak and it was actually a lot better than we thought it was going to be. Very tasty. Overall we had a nice experience, we were just looking for something a little more upscale."

  • "I spent over $200 for 2 people for Valentine's day at the Churrascos and was disappointed with the quality of the food. We had to look for the waiter on the first course which was not the dish we ordered and the steak for the main course had to be sent back because it was overcooked. This should have been a $70 or $80 total meal cost for 2 people at the most. Overall I was disappointed with the taste of the food which was not worth the price. I will not go here again unless the price is less or food quality is upgraded."

  • "Fantastic food. Outstanding, friendly staff. Our waiter made several recommendations and did a wonderful job suggesting wine pairings."

  • "Met friends for dinner on a Sat. Evening. We all agreed that the evening went very well. From start to finish everything was pleasurable! Place was full, but found the noise level to not be a problem with conversation at our table. Service and food was perfect! Looking forward to returning soon!"

  • "One of the best dining experiences we have had in quite some time. Service could not have been better. All food selections were excellent. Chef Manuel strives for perfection and achieves his goal. Look forward to dining at Churrascos River Oaks in the future."

  • "I really have 0 negatives about this place. 5 star all around and excellent prices for the quality. I will be going here again for sure!"

  • "Many time diner at Americas but first time to Churruscos. Great attentive service. Strayed past the dependable churrusco to try different filets. Done to perfection as ordered and our waiter brought additional sauces for us to try . We will be back!"
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "Only positive things to say about Churrascos. Food and wine was excellent, was a fixed menu for the evening but choices had quite a bit of variety and included the Churrasco steak and Ceviche for an appetizer. Excellent restaurant, great experience! Will always recommend to friends, neighbors, and co-workers."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Although I prefer the ambiance at the Westchase location a bit more, the Shepherd location is more convenient for me. On this particular visit I discovered wonderful and thoughtful service and one of the best ceviches I have eaten in Houston. No matter which location, Churascos is a great dining experience."
    Dined on 2/18/2014
  • "We went for Sunday brunch, not really intending brunch but decided to try it. The selections were very good although some items were slightly mislabeled--like beef short ribs were labeled as beef on skewers. They had small portions on Tres Leches on their dessert table, wonderful as always, as well as bread pudding, brownies and more. The only thing we missed was not having our favorite corn-smoked crab fingers appetizer. We'll have to go back soon."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "This was the first time my wife and ate at Churrasco's and we loved the food. I had their signature streak and my wife had some beaded chicken (don't recall what they called it) and we both enjoyed our meals. The food lived up to expectations. The one complaint was the noise level. The ambiance would have been perfect for Valentines dinner except the restaurant packed in so many people that it was quite loud and servers were forced to juggle a number of tables. We'll go back again, but not likely on a Valentine's night."

  • "The food is excellent. Good portions. A fusion of South American dishes."

  • "The food and the service was great, maybe it was just my lack of being able to pay attention. But I had no idea my meal would be so Pricey until I received my actual check. O also they put the tables REALLY close together. But others than that it was good"
