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.

Good for people who want to just gorge. Would much rather have a menu option. It was not a great atmosphere. Someone was even changing a dirty diaper on the couch in the lobby. Not appetizing!

Place itself was perfect in every way but one. It really needs a separate section for families with small children. Didn’t think of this place as a family restaurant and the small child screaming at the table behind us caused us to leave earlier than planned. Food and service were excellent. We left room for dessert and that did not disappoint either. Hope to go back again.

This place never ceases to surprise me. They are very attentive and even with the drinks there is a show. I made sure not to eat breakfast because I knew I would stuff myself here with all the meat options as well as the salad bar

This is by far the best restaurant I ever been to. I've been dining here for years and not once been disappointed. They have the best chicken salad and the finest yac (cognac). Their mixed drinks are reasonable, had me in there lit (drunk). People compare it to Brazazz but I like this place better. No shade at Brazazz because their good too but this place is better in my opinion.

I would just go back because of the costumer service!. They are amazing and really attentive from pulling your chair to helping you with your coat. Always came bac k to get you a refill and asking if you wanted another drink/wine. As soon as you flip your card the meat will keep on coming!

A bit of a wait considering it being valentines, some of the meat was cold. Servers were friendly and willing to make us feel welcomed. We did wait awhile for the check but it was understandable. We are regulars and will be coming back for my birthday the 27th. Hopefully the experience will be a bit better

I took my wife out for Valentine's day,we decided to go on the night before to avoid the crowds. This was our first visit to Chama. We love Brazilian steak houses. This is our new place!. Everyone was so friendly and accommodating. Matthew our server was outstanding! All of the side dishes were piping hot. The filet mignon was succulent! Great place!!!! Great staff!!!
