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.

    This is not the first time I go to Chama Gaucha for dinner but this is the first time I celebrate my bday there. My family and I were seated towards the back of the restaurant. The food was amazing per usual, and the service was extremely well. The only thing we didn’t like was that were were seated next to a sliding door. The table behind us, kept pulling the sliding door towards them, leaving us with an open space. Overall, the experience was great and the staff was wonderful! Thank you for the crème brûlée birthday dessert! It was the best!!!

    We have been here many times before and have always enjoyed it. This visit was different and I don’t think I bother going back again. There are way to many options for good food and above all better service. It was so loud and noisy with so many large birthday parties that it was impossible to have a nice time with friends, the loudest made it impossible to have a nice conversation with friends. We were all fed up saying what. What. The food was very good as always, the prices have gone up considerably so we will go to check out competitors and see how they compare.
