Steak
Known for outstanding service, the authentic “churrascaria” offers more than 12 flavorful cuts of meat including lamb, pork, chicken and beef on skewers carved table side by gauchos. In addition to several cuts of meat, the continuous service includes a trip to the fresh and bountiful salad bar followed by a basket of traditional, mouthwatering pao de queijo (cheese bread). Fried plantains, buttery garlic mashed potatoes and fried polenta are served family style. An excellent, extensive wine list and authentic Brazilian cocktails complement the unlimited fare.

At our restaurant we are proud to bring you all the tradition behind the unique and original Brazilian way of serving meat. Food doesn’t stop arriving until you’ve had enough. Whether it’s a cocktail reception, class reunion, corporate picnic, magnificent wedding reception, or any occasion we can create a great event fueled by our passion for perfection.

There only thing I didn’t care for was the waiter told us we could have dessert on him for our anniversary and he picked one out but didn’t tell us up front until he brought the bill it would be 9 dollars for the liquor they set on fire. Food was great and other than that service was great.

Food was very good, exactly the way I remembered 8 years ago. First Class service all night.
We were given a free dessert for our anniversary which was very nice.
It was a bit noisy....lots of children there the night we went, but all things considered, it was very nice.

It was an amazing experience and I highly recommend going at least once! Just don't fill up on the wonderful salad bar. I knew what i was getting into so i just had a small salad. I wanted to try all 12 meats and I did!

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner for our son’s birthday! The food was incredible, as always, and the staff is always top notch. The various Gaucha servers were always present when you wanted them, but never hovering. The meats were amazing. And shout out to the best waiter we’ve ever had, Joe!! Thanks to all for a great night! We will be back :)

Food is always superb. Service is always amazing. Only thing was I had a few meats with a decent amount of fat on them. But overall, still great.

Absolutely amazing food. I have been to brazillian strakhouses all over the east coast and this was easily amongst the best if not the best. The meat delections were great, and all cooked to perfection. Everything was seasoned perfectly. Thr service was impecabble. Pricey but all nice steak houses are. Go hungry and get your moneies worth. Highly recommend for a nice date night!

First time trying out Chama Gaucha per friends recommendation. We decided to dine here to celebrate my boyfriends birthday and it did not disappoint the food was absolutely delicious and everyone we came in contact with was very friendly and pleasant. At the end they had my boyfriend pick out a dessert to celebrate his birthday which was a very nice touch! We will definitely be coming back.

I am a fan of everything at Chama Gaucha. There are dozens of choices at the beautiful salad bar, the meat is scrumptious, the side dishes table side are thoughtful, and the service is impeccable.

This restaurant is amazing from the homemade salads to the variety of superb meats, I cant say enough about the outstanding staff who go out of there way to make your experience the best it can be. This was our first visit and the staff was so great explaining how everything was prepared, how we get our food and who does the preparing actual meats that were being served. It is definitely a 5 Star restaurant in my book, if you ever get the opportunity to dine there you will really enjoy it. We did.

The food was exceptional as always. The prices are very reasonable considering it’s all you can eat. The service was exceptional tonight. We didn’t have to ask for anything. The water kept coming, out wine glasses full and clean plates offered. This is one of my family and my favorite restaurants.

If you like steak and meat, this is the place to go! The service is always amazing and the amount of food that you receive for what you are paying is an incredible deal! It’s not cheap, but worth every penny! It’s hands down one of our favorite places and we’ve been celebrating special occasions with them for over a decade and we’ve never been disappointed.

My son picked this as his 13th bday dinner. Reservation was made indicating birthday and a server was told at beginning of meal.
A little disappointed no special show was made for him as we heard several bday songs throughout dinner. I did ask a server for the bday flan.. he just dropped at table, lit candle and left:/
Otherwise, dinner and cocktails were great. We always enjoy all the meats!

The food is wonderful. The service is good. However, the wait staff shouldn't hover around your table all night. This is the first time this has ever happened. Normally the service is great. Let the people eat their food without all the interruptions Please!
