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.

Chama Gaucha has a well established reputation for service, and this visit did not disappoint. The only negative comment would be about the saltiness of all cuts of meat, which is really extremely high.

I think there is no place quite like it for the value, ambience, and of the menu of items including the salad bar. It is a great place to take a special person out one to one, or for a group gathering.

Wonderful service, excellent food, was only disappointed that we were not asked if we were celebrating anything, nor were the reservation notes read which stated it was an anniversary celebration.

The service was great. We’ve been to other similar restaurants but here we hardly ever had to ask for something and they were already at the table within a few minutes. My drink was never empty and the meats kept coming even though we hardly turned over our card. They knew the cuts we wanted and my wife likes her meat well done and they brought her exactly that. Love this place.

took my wife there for her birthday.
first visit. we got seated next to the waiters station.
then to top it off had a group of 10 with 3 toddlers all deciding to kick off throughout the whole meal . plenty of other guests extreamly annoyed that it was ok with a high end restaurant to allow that. may as well have gone to golden corall. very dissatisfied..

Too noisy for conversation. Food is very good but not a place to go if you want to talk to anyone across from you.

This is the perfect high end restaurant experience in Bexar county. The price is high, but not too high and the food is second to none in the many preparations they have.

The service was great! Matthew did a great job making sure we didn't need anything, as others pitched in to help clear plates. The servers bringing the meat around listened to our preference and delivered the meats of our choice. The manager came around and asked if everything was ok a couple of times and even helped clear our plates. He was very kind and helpful. We visit the Houston location often, but this was our first time at the San Antonio and I would definitely recommend it to others!

Excellent customer service. The food (meats) were TOP NOTCH, the saled bar is nice but lacking in some items like a soup and seafood. I will return with excitement and joy for the meats they serve.

Amazing experience! We are in San Antonio visiting friends, we’re from Seattle, WA. Fabulous food, cozy atmosphere, and the service is the best we’ve had in this city! We highly recommend Chama Gaúcha!

Great. I'd stop at that but the review has to contain at least 50 characters. Best salad bar ever, but don't fill up on that. Servers were there frequently with meat choices, but if you said no they asked if you would like something in particular and once you identified what you wanted it came very quickly.

I love this place, but the food wasn’t that great this time. I love the Picanha. It’s my favorite cut there, but unfortunately it taste pretty bad. I could taste the fumes from the grill. The service was good, but it also seemed like there wasn’t much of a meat selection to choose from. The same cuts kept passing by constantly.
