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.

Nice experience. Great food and service. Amazing cooks (far better than other Brazilian steakhouses like Casa do Brazil). They even offered us complimentary dessert as we were celebrating our anniversary. Nice gesture.

The whole experience was ruined when we had to wait an hour for our 8:15pm reservation. We scheduled our reservation for 8:15pm and didn't get seated till 9:20pm (keep in mind the establishment closes at 10:30pm) but first we were called up to the stand to get our table then the manager gave our table to someone else, which made us wait an extra 20 minutes. Food was cold when they served us, others in my party were highly upset because we had later plans and were very late for them. Overall the experience was horrible for this type of restaurant. My colleagues will not be dining here anymore, thankfully I like the place so I will be back but this ruined it for my colleagues. Thanks

Fiancé and I went here for our anniversary and this was our first time. It exceeded all expectations and some. The staff were pleasant and prompt. The food was delicious and we barely had room for desert, which also was delicious. We will be back.

Food was still amazing as when it first opened and the services are still great and attentive. They are, however, extremely overbooked on weekends. We sat in a bit of an inconvenient spot and noticed that a few times the food we ordered never made it to our table (whic

Went out to dinner with my wife for our anniversary and it was perfect. It was my first time here and we both left completely satisfied with the service and definitely the food. Pretty spendy, but totally worth it! Just don’t order wine and it won’t be to expensive.

Recently went for my girlfriends birthday and the entire experience was great the food the drinks and especially the service. We must’ve been helped out by 6 different people (including 2 supervisors) all willing to bring us whatever we needed. The food was all cooked great and well seasoned. Would definitely come back.

The food that we were served was good. The issue is we only had a few meats served to us even after requesting that our server send them our way.

Simply wonderful food. The ribeye steak was my favorite meat and the pineapple was to die for! The salad bar is a whole different meal. Next time, I’m thinking I’ll choose the meats and sides over the salad bar. I ate so much from the salad bar that I was full by the time I started on the mains. But no matter what, I don’t have a large enough appetite to enjoy all of the wonderful foods Chaka Gaucha offers. The best food ever.

Expensive for what they offer: waiters who ignore the green sign and don't stop to serve you meat, salad bar with tasteless food and tables really close to each other.
