Brazilian Steakhouse
Known for outstanding service, the authentic “churrascaria” offers more than 12 flavorful cuts of meat including lamb, pork, chicken and beef on skewers carved table side 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.

I’ve been coming here since they opened in San Antonio. Each and every time is a pleasurable experience; with great food, a tranquil atmosphere, and top-notch service. Yes, it is pricey, but well-worth it in my opinion. Excellent place for date night.

Chama Gaucha is one of only two restaurants in San Antonio, we will celebrate important events like Anniversaries and Birthdays at. The service is always top notch and the food spectacular.

Such consistent cuisine and service. Attention to detail is second to none. Keep the card on green when that bottom sirloin comes around! It’s well executed. So juicy and tender.

This is the gold standard for me when I think about a Brazilian Steak House. We always make it a point to go to Chama Gaucha whenever we are in San Antonio because, besides the food being great, the place is amazing and the service is like nowhere else.

Amazing food. All of it. The sides, the meat (omg the bacon wrapped filet is to die for!), the wine. Amazing. Expensive, but worth it if you want the best meal for the best date/night out.

I've been here twice now. Loved it both times. I think the price is definitely worth it for the amount of food, taste, and service. Although, the second time I visited, I did feel like some of the food was so much saltier than when I had it the first time. Still an amazing restaurant and 100% recommend

The best service I’ve ever experienced,and the food was excellent. I didn’t really like the dim lightning. Maybe having table lamps would help. The noise level was a little loud. It’s a big, open room with many table (no booths), so I think the sound bounces around. I will def be back. The food and customer service far out weigh the noise and lighting issue.

I felt like a queen! Once I got to the table, the waitress put our jackets on the chair and the napkin on my lap. I don’t eat salad, but the salad bar had many options that I enjoyed. All meats and sides were delicious and the service was amazing. It could be a little bit pricey, but hey, you have unlimited meat and meat isn’t cheap either. I would definitely go back.

This was my first time there. The food was excellent and the service was exceptional. They have excellent choices at the salad bar and we loved trying all the different meat options. The sides were great and the cheese bread was addictive! Be sure to go hungry as it’s a lot of food!

I have been meaning to go here for years. The food was everything I had hoped for and more! My only disappointment is that I did not know they were closing earlier than usual that day. Because of this, we unknowingly came in 30 minutes before closing. I felt rushed by the staff to eat quickly and move on to the next courses. They did so in the most polite way possible ("Can I take your plate? Would you like the meat now? How about dessert?") but I did not feel like I was able to experience Chama Gaucha fully because of this.
Other than that, I'm sure on any other day they are exceptional in every way.

We had a great birthday celebration ! Our dinner party also included one senior and two children and the staff at our table were very considerate of all the members of the party. Our senior was provided a slow and clear explanation of the dinner system and our children were provided with all the food and drink they needed including several trips to the salad bar for the one food they would eat. In addition I saw staff reach over in a friendly manner an cut up the food for the other child. It provided me a calmer and happier experience to watch everyone enjoy their dinner. I will return again with my family.

Arrive with reservations and still had to wait 45 minutes to be seated. This was our second time here and I must say the service this time was very slow. We had to wait 5 minutes to be served meat again after having the hole table with green cards flipped over. Had to continually be asking waiters for new plates. Our table kept running out of the sides. When it came time to pay the waiter added his own 18% gratitude. I did not agree with that due to the lack of service.

Food was excellent as always but restaurant was very loud and at times felt hectic and rushed but the service was somewhat slow. Staff was very nice and friendly and even offered a free dessert to the person celebrating a birthday and then added an extra dessert because of the long wait we had during our meal. Still memorable experience and we will go again in the future.
