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.

Food was good but not the best I had in a churrascaría. I had to ask for some cuts of meats since gauchos skipped our table sometimes. I didn’t like the ambiance and restaurant was very loud. Dessert wasn’t special. Overall, I don’t think I’ll go back anytime soon.

The waitstaff was rude and kept us waiting for our food. We had to ask multiple servers to check on the orders and we ended up waiting a long time and were charged for double the drinks because multiple servers added it to our ticket but we consumed only the amounts we ordered. This was a disappointment and I do. It intend to return.

We came in last night (Wednesday night) for my wife's 45th birthday dinner and she loved every moment of the evening. The servers were very attentive, It seems like the moment you turned your serving card over - they were at your table. Fresh, seasoned steak, chicken and pork sausage. At this restaurant, the sides are brought out as well. I have dined at other steakhouses and the sides are separate. The salad bar is amazing. One member of our party is vegan, they made sure she was accommodated with fresh steamed sides and salads. Finally, we were able to choose our dessert and we had the Fireball Cheesecake, AMAZING!! We will definitely return! Thank you!

I’m a frequent visitor. Yesterday we were a party of 5. The food was amazing, as always. Not sure if yesterday the servers were having a bad day or what, but the service was bad. I waited multiple times for more than 15 minutes for servers to bring filet mignon or picana. I had to repeatedly asked the servers to bring chimichurri sauce. Normally the servers are always very attentive and never have to ask for anything, let alone remind them multiple times. Nevertheless, this will continue to be my favorite churrasqueria in the Houston area.

The quality of the food has gone down enormously. We had a party of 7 and I had to remind the staff almost 10x regarding a particular cut that we wanted to try, repeatedly and we then finally got it. We have been coming to Chama for the past 7 years and last nights was the worst yet.

From beginning to end the service was top class. The lady that took care of us was always nice, well spoke , and I could sense her smile since she was wearing a mask. The food was amazing!
My piña colada was great too. I am definitely coming back.

The staff were courteous. The food was ok but the choices offered were fewer than I've had at other Brazilian steakhouses.
The atmosphere was crowded and very loud. It was hard to hear what was said at my own table, much less from the staff.
