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.

Manager was working the floor and always making sure we were taken care of. Lots of options for meat, all cooked perfectly. Not too loud, nice lighting, always someone checking to see if you need something. Price is similar to a fancy steak house but you get endless steak and sides here, and get so many options compared to just one type at a traditional style steak house.

Amazing experience as usual, our favorite restaurant in San Antonio, we are foodies, so we’ve visited already almost all the good places, but for sure Chama Gaucha it’s the family favorite. Staff are amazing, always very attentive, and willing to help however they can; the food it’s exquisite and high grade quality, the ambiance it’s great. What I like the most, about this place is that they really create an atmosphere for the customers, we’ve being going there since 2012, and to experience how personal they are with their customers, makes me want to keep going back for every special occasion and everyday dinning, we go at least once a month, we love it. Today I noticed the made a few changes in the salad bar, they added ceviche, yellow beets and chickpeas salad, very tasty and fresh, really enjoyed it, I think it’s a great addition to their repertoire. Excellent place, truly recommend it a 100%! Love love Chama Gaucha!

The food and staff was simply amazing!! Expensive so more for special occasions, but a great time! We usually go for my sons bday, loves it. The salad bar alone is an experience then all the different types of meat you can try. I love tasting everything so it's nice to be able to sample everything (different steaks to lamb, sausage, chickens, and so on) or can have as much as you want of one thing it's up to you. They have an amazing house cucumber martini. They gave my son a complimentary birthday dessert which we all tasted (key lime pie) yum! Between the salad bar and attentive waiters that bring meat around theres something for everyone here.

Meats are cooked perfect, salad bar is excellent and deserts are awesome, especially the "Fire-ball Cheesecake. "
We were celebrating my son's birthday, and the staff made it super special.

Have never had a disappointing meal at Chama Gaucha. Lunch is the better choice since it is less expensive. The only negative is that the Salad Bar is too good and it is difficult not to spoil your appetite for the entrees! Service is outstanding.

I’ve been here several times and it is always great. This particular visit was disappointing. Had to ask multiple times for our drinks and finally got them well into our meal and the refills never came. Asked 2-3 times for xtra mashed potatoes and 5-6 times for the ribs and ribeye to come by. The ribeye finally made it and the ribs showed up at the end when we were already done. Took my friend for his birthday and talked the place up. At the end his impression was, “it was okay.” Like I said, it’s usually great but they had a bad night. For $160 bill, not the experience I was hoping for this time around.

Chama Gaucha has some of the best meats around. Love the variety, the food is always consistent, and the service is constantly excellent. They've recently upped their fine spirits cart selection as well, which was a big plus. Regular customers and will definitely be back.

Celebrated our friends birthday and everything was amazing! We've been here multiple times and it's always amazing, but it was our friends first. Aaron was the best with recommendations on drinks and additions to our meat. We'll definitely be back!

Overall good experience. I felt that they push the house special steak over all other steaks. Ask for beef rib, took 20 minutes to get the server to bring it.

When you ask for additional items, it took a while to get your request.

It was okay, too dark couldn’t see very well. Food was okay, meat wasn’t seasoned too good. Salad bar was awesome, I wouldn’t go back because it’s not worth the price unless you’re trying to impress a girl on a first date.

I’ve been taking our family here a few times throughout the year for the past several years. The dining room, variety and quality of food, service and attention to detail are top notch. The salad bar is great; our favorites are the Italian salad, chicken salad, sliced prosciutto and salami. At your table you are presented with endless cheese bread rolls, caramelized bananas and dressed mashed potatoes. You are offered excellent choices of meats; our favorites are the sirloin, rib-eye, bacon wrapped filet mignon, lamb chops and sausage. Enjoy!

The service is unlike any other. My wife and I took our 2 year old and they treated him like a king, they made us feel like we were on a date just the two of us. Food is great but the service is on another level.
