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.

Was good the food flavors, however was disappointing for me the lack of some key factors in the Brazilian Rodizzio like the chicken hearts, the pineapple with cinnamon, the farofa....

Best in Houston! Wish they had one in Dallas too. Food is great, cuts of meat are the best. Try the picana and filet with garlic

Most of the meat was very salty. The lamb was tough.

The service was fine.

We had the best experience we have ever had at a churrasco in the States. From the second we walked, the hostess was very polite and welcoming, all the staff was so friendly and made sure we had anything and everything we needed for our meal. The quality of the food was amazing and we will definitely be back next time we are in the Houston area.

This was my first time here. Great atmosphere, waiters were always on top of things. Anything we needed (extra plate, refills on drinks....etc) they were fast and prompt. Kind of pricey but well worth it. I will definitely visit this place again.

Excellent food, in particular the ribeye and fillet, although it would have been nice to have more pork and chicken choices the day we went as my companion cannot eat beef. Very attentive service, everyone was friendly and frequently refilled our wine glasses, made sure everything was alright, etc. My companion and I laughed at how the staff seemed to be more focused on filling my glasses than hers, and we did wait a while for some of the non-beef choices which was finally remedied by a manager. The wine is a bit expensive, although it was everywhere we dined that weekend.

Excellent food, nice atmosphere, wonderful drinks, everything was nice. The side orders were fried sweet bananas, and rice with bits of beef in it. I wasn’t too crazy about the rice but the bananas were on point. The servers came around often to refill drinks, add more bread to the basket, and were attentive to our needs. The salad bar is really good also. It has a lot of variety the potato salad is delicious the wedge salad is delicious they had a creamy chicken soup as well but it was lukewarm so that was the only tiny little thing that I didn’t really care for I would’ve preferred that soup to be really hot.

This Brazilian restaurant is one my favorite. I took my great nephew and his girlfriend here for their first Brazilian Steakhouse experience, it was a hit!!! They are from a small town and got to experience several food selections that they had not been exposed to before. I work hard to be the favorite uncle and Chama Gaucha is helping me keep my title!!! Thanks.

I didn't have luck this time since I was in the middle of the table against the wall so the access was not as easy as the others in my table and as I wanted the meat medium well and they only had medium they kept forgetting me and then bring it well done, so decided to eat whatever they bring and asking for it (almost always skipped me). The food was good but not as amazing as I had it before. They also forgot my lemonade. Definitely I did not have luck this time but my brother enjoyed it so will not complain.

We celebrated my husband's 50th birthday and my son's 21st birthday on a Sat night. The experience was incredible. The food was outstanding as was the service and attention we were given. Definitely make a reservation. We were shown back to our table immediately upon arrival. Salad bar was fresh. Restrooms were immaculate. So, so impressive

Just few minutes after we ordered our food, the power was off. We were almost in the dark. The manager and waitress kept coming to apologize and bringing extra appetizers to us while we were waiting. Fortunately, the power was back on. The food was delicious as usual. When we left, they gave us a little gift as a token to appreciate our coming and apologize for the power shortage again. We love this restaurant for the food and service!

I used to love his place but the last two times I’ve have gone the service has declined along with the food. If you haven’t been here before the will push the lessor quality meats in you, hold out for the Filet Minon. It is quite good.
