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.

Lovely layout, location and food. Presentation is superb starting with the salad bar. Only downside from my perspective was the wait staff repeatedly and unnecessarily interrupting our table conversation. No need to hover, customers can ask if they need something additional.

My experience was great! I went on a date with my boyfriend and we both loved the food, vibe, and service. Everyone was very polite and helpful. Our waiter, Jose, was so nice and really went the extra mile to make sure we were happy and taken care of. We plan on coming back for any special occasions and birthdays!

Chama has been one of my favorite restaurants for a few years. The customer service is beyond exceptional! From the time you sit down to the time you leave the staff takes care of you. The variety of meat keeps me coming back over and over. Can’t recommend this restaurant enough.

This was our first time at Chama Gaucha and we’ll definitely be back! The food was outstanding and we left stuffed. The ONLY thing we had to get used to was the hurried atmosphere of the restaurant, everyone is going going going and rushing everywhere. The service was incredible and the staff was very attentive and gracious. There was a big delay in getting the bill but as an apology we were sent home with a slice of phenomenal cheesecake. Chama Gaucha is truly a restaurant to be experienced!

This has been a must for me and my wife every time we visit San Antonio. However this last time was a bit different as the variety was just not more than four or five types of meats. I came with my wife and child and felt a bit overlooked as the waiters were focusing on big tables to serve first so my options felt almost like leftovers from them. Hope they had just a bad night and won't happen again next time we're back.

Made a reservation for my husbands birthday - he’s a fanatic for Brazilian steakhouses. LOVED the food. He enjoyed his meal, which is what mattered most to me. Server was nice, but not very engaging. Makes sense since they tip pool, but I would have spent way more money if they made wine lists, cocktail menus, and upgrades more available.

I did stipulate in the reservation that it was my husbands birthday and would love for them to make it special. Never had a mention of a “happy birthday” and noticed lots of other birthday celebrations around us. Didn’t want to make him feel badly, so didn’t mention it. However - at 70 a head, I’d expect them to be on top of reservation notes. All things considered, we’d definitely give it another go.

Food was great, everything from the salad bar to the meats served along with the sides. Great drinks and the dessert was fabulous! It is so true what they say..."don't fill up on the salad bar"! The restaurant was kind of dark and with a majority of the restaurant open, it was a bit loud. Other than that nice place to try out.

My boyfriend and I were very excited to have dinner here, when we first walked in we were greeted nicely and seated very quick then received our drinks and then the food started pouring in. I got my signature favorite bacon wrapped filet mignon and my boyfriend and I talked about a lot and just had a great time the waiters always came to check up on us and it was another great memory for us.

A friend of mine told me about this place years before I even moved to San Antonio. This last weekend we got to meet up for dinner and it was amazing. I've never had such incredibly thorough service before. The salad bar is delicious, but be careful not to fill up. The meats brought to our table were incredible. This was easily the best ribeye I've ever had. The bread was like nothing I've had before. Yes, this place is pricey but it's absolutely worth it. You're buying the full experience. I'll be booking a reservation for my 20th wedding anniversary. I can't wait for my husband to try this food when he gets back from Korea.
