Brazilian Steakhouse
Known for outstanding service, the authentic “churrascaria” offers more than 10 flavorful cuts of meat including lamb, pork, chicken and beef on skewers carved tableside 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 bananas, 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.

We went there with 12 people to celebrate my sons birthday. The waitstaff was very attentive and entertaining. The one thing that we didn’t appreciate was them trying to up sale everything. It took them several times to get the word “no”. They did help us in accommodating a special needs diet at our table.
Food was good but expected it to be better than it was. When the waitstaff begins to bring the meat options we all felt a little bombarded at once. It was hard to remember what you were eating.

Valentines Day so it was extremely busy. Luckily I made a reservation a few weeks prior because they were almost out of spots then and come to find out it was reservation only for seating.
Unfortunately some people had brought children, so on top of the already energetic noise level from having so many people there, the crying and screaming of the children made the noise level a bit overbearing.
The food was phenomenal. The vegetables from the salad bar were all cold however, and for me personally I didn’t care much for that and mostly ate meat instead. For most people I doubt that would be a problem.
The service took a while at first but once it started it really took off. Every 30 seconds to a minute with the card on green, we were offered a new meat. That was great. The garlic steak was unbelievably delicious.
To finish off we had Fireball Cheesecake. The other deserts just sounded like the same old thing you can get anywhere, so that one stood out. They basically pour liquid fire onto the cheesecake with ignited rum, and then put the fire out with ice cream. It was a beautiful presentation the flavor of the cheesecake was outstanding.
Personally, I consider this restaurant one for special occasions, but nonetheless I highly recommend it to anyone who is thinking of going for any reason.

Usually always have a good time at Chama Gaucha. But this Valentine’s Day, we didn’t receive the service we expected or usually got. We understand that it was busy on this day, but tables left and right of us were being greeted and talked to, except ours. They weren’t even taking walk ins. Reservations only. No one bothered to refill any of our drinks, except when we asked. And by the end of the night they ran my credit card on someone else’s bill, which took forever to get back. We got a voucher for a free dinner but that was only because I was eyeing and ended up asking them wondering where my stuff is, otherwise, there would’ve been no explanation.

We had an excellent experience on Valentine's Day. We went during lunch and they did not disappoint. They actually came up to us and asked us specifically what we wanted as far as cuts of meat are concerned and then made sure to come straight over once the meats were prepared in the kitchen. Wonderful experience and excellent staff. Thanks!

We order off the ala carte menu to get the best filet in the city. It's miles ahead of Pappas Steak House plus we get our favorite sides....bananas and giant asparagus. This is our favorite destination for a special occasion.

The food was amazing! I have eaten at most of the Brazilian steakhouses in Houston and this one is the best. The meat is seasoned to perfection. The service is excellent making you feel like you are the only guest there. The sides are great and the servers very friendly and professional. Managers are very visible coming to each table and making sure that you are enjoying your experience. It was a great experience that wasn't a fluke. My friends and I eat here usually on a monthly basis.

Recent trip to Chama. Service for tonight dinner was lacking. We had a waiter that was not doing his job. The kind that walks by your table and just look and keeps on walking. Most good waiters would stop and refill your drinks or brings more breads. Not our waiter tonight. Overall, let’s hope that changes for the sake of repeated business.

The best Brazilian steakhouse I've been to. They have a great variety of meat and all are excellent. The service is superb. My sister does not like a single trace of pink in her meat and they made sure to come with well done steak specifically for her every time they passed by. My husband and I have gone on our anniversary and they gave us a complimentary dessert to celebrate. My family and I went last weekend to celebrate my mother's and brother's birthday. They each got a complimentary dessert as well. Also, the Brazilian lemonade is a must!

Very good experience for Brazilian BBQ. I'm not a fan of all-you-can eat restaurants, but Chama Gaucha seems to be an exception. The food is good, even the salad bar. The atmosphere is nice. The service is very good, maybe too good since the staff was so attentive, it made the meal feel a little rushed.
