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.

The Ribeye and the Picaña were amazingly delicious. Their Cheese bread was also really good. Service team was on the Ball.
Can't wait to go back!

The service was poor. Everything felt very rushed initially then no service after the meal was started. Seemed like there was uncertainty as to which group of waiters was supposed to be handling our table. Had to ask for more items to be served. Took me asking twice for that to happen.
They were quick to bring the check since it looked like they were trying to close and get people out of the restaurant. It wasn’t late. Only around 9:30 pm.
The food was good.

My wife and I were blown away as soon as we entered the restaurant. We’ve never dined in a Portuguese steakhouse, but wow, we will sure be back. The service was great and helpful, the meats and salad bar were delicious. I’ve never felt so pampered in my life. They were very aware of our needs. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to everybody, and to at least try it once. Thank you very much !

We always enjoy our time when visiting Chama Gaucha. Our waiter always has impeccable customer service and personality. The atmosphere was a bit louder than normal, but nothing extremely disturbing.

There were several families with their children as well as it is rodeo season!

The food was really good but I was quite disappointed with the lack of options at the salad bar. Also, when I asked my waiter about gluten free bread he mentioned he would be back with it and never returned. I mentioned it again and nothing. Also, it took a while to get even a glass of water. The meats were really good but the service itself was slightly lacking. Would give it another shot just because the meats were amazing.

The food was amazing, however it took 15 minutes to get our check, once we had the check we waited 23 minutes for someone to come grab the check from us and no one did. We finally were able to get the attention of the host to take care of it. No “sorry for the wait” nothing. When your check is over $100 for 2 people I wouldn’t think the servers would just straight up ignore the guests. Will definitely not be returning.

On a previous anniversary we went to Fogo de Chao. I wasn't impressed. Here I felt like the salad bar had more to offer, the meats were delicious, however, I did feel like they had more meat offerings at the other place. But, still the cheesy bread was amazing, the complimentary anniversary dessert was amazing, our server was fantastic. We were very pleased.

This is the best Brazilian meat place in Houston. Don't waste your time at the competitors, this is your spot. Service is always spot on, and the meat selection is immense. If you want something just ask, they will be all over you. Rib eye, filet, NY strip, beef ribs - all top notch. And for the same price as just the steak (nothing else) at high end steak houses - this meat is comparable to the best steakhouses in town. Great sides, mashed potatoes, cheese bread, plantains, sauteed mushrooms, jalapenos, onions, spicy sauce, chimichurri - all super delish. Runs about $55/adult, and well worth it. Excellent wine list as well.

Waiters don’t give you a chance to breathe. Always someone at the table. Some wait staff was annoying by trying to be too friendly or funny. It was uncomfortable to have a waiter standing almost at guard 2 feet from the table facing us for half the evening.

We celebrated my son’s 13th birthday and he loved it. The bacon wrapped chicken was his favorite. My vegetarian guest had a lot to choose from at the salad bar! The cheese rolls and mashed potatoes were delicious. Highly recommend to anyone who’s looking to celebrate a special occasion.

It was my first time at a Brazilian Streakhouse with my significant other, and it was delightful time to remember for Valentine’s Day. The valet experience was friendly to start. The host quickly got us sit for being early to our reservation. The salad bar was colorful in selection and arrangement. The star of the whole being the steaks and the kind server that run them around. Overall, an amazing experience for the value and I would recommend for any special occasion. 👏

This was my first time at a place like this and I can say I definitely chose the right restaurant for my first Brazilian Steakhouse experience! The staff was very helpful in explaining how the whole process went and what to do. I feel like I get my monies worth in food and drinks. I went home happy and FULL. Everything tasted great! I’ll definitely be back.

At my arrival it was a little bit hectic, but we asked to get moves to a different table and management took action immediately and moved us to a better table, the best service I ever had. Food was amazing, from taste, texture and preparation.

Went for Valentines dinner with family. Food was good as usual. Service was quick and adequate. However, the dinner price went up to $64.95/person that night. I don’t know because of Valentines Day the price increased or that’s the new going rates. Definitely not worth $64.95. So keep that in mind if you want to go here. Not cheap.

Chama Gaucha was a fine experience, some of the best cuts of meat around, with all sorts of capirinias, pao de quejo, and other Brasilian staples. Some of the most authentic Brasilian food in town, with some members even being from Brasil themselves. Took my Brasilian grandmother here and she loved it.
