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.

Chana Gaucha is always our ‘go to’ for a special occasion, date night or we just want to spoil ourselves. The food is fantastic and they pride themselves in their service which is on spot! It is a little pricey, but SO worth it if you want to go somewhere that caters to your every whim!

We had a reservation but wasn’t seated until 30 minutes later. We weren’t given napkins and had to ask 3 times, in which they brought us bar drink paper napkins. Finally asked a different server and got them.

The service at Chama Gaucha was PHENOMENAL. Never did my fiancé and I have to ask for refills, or more bread, etc. The staff was incredibly personable and accommodating. They made our anniversary so special! We have always loved Chama Gaucha and will most definitely be back again.

In a word.... amazing. We went there for mom's birthday. Sister and niece were here from Dallas. We were not disappointed. The kind of service and quality you would expect for the price you pay. Make sure to order a life changer drink. It's as much fun to watch being made as it is good to drink. Love this place.

The food selection is better at Galpão Gaucho Brazilian Steakhouse, I was not impressed here and will not be returning!
The service was very slow I had to ask several times for refills which I don’t have to do at Galpão Gaucho. When we first got there it took them a while to bring the sides and the chino churri sauce was bland it has no taste! The quality of food has definitely decreased significantly!

Waited too long for my reserved table to be ready. People who were given a pager were seated just after us.
Meats are too salty.
Noise in dining area is louder than bar area.

We had a 8:30 reservation and waited 45 min to be seated. It does not appear that having a reservation makes a difference. The staff was polite but seemed overwhelmed. The food is always good here but it is loud and you may have to wait.

The waitstaff was very friendly and very efficient. The salad bar could be a meal in itself. The food was delicious and you are able to eat as much as you desire. The place was very clean and the overall ambiance was very nice! The bar was well stocked and they were able to serve drinks with a twist, that is not true of many bars in the area!

This place is great! As soon as we walked in they waited on us hand and foot. Our glasses were never empty. Our plates were only empty when we took a break from the delicious food! They make you feel like royalty.

The meat was all perfectly seasoned and roasted to perfection! The salads and cheeses were wonderful too.

Really it is a delicious meat and chicken I have ever tasted in my life, and very excellent and clean vegetables buffet , clean restaurant, but with this price they should offer at least one small free desert for customers. Me and my family enjoyed and loved this place .

Price aside, it was the best experience I could have wanted for my anniversary. You are being waited on by everybody and often. They will custom make a dish just for you as well. It’s an awesome experience. $101 for 2 people though. That’s why I would only go for a super special occasion. (And go Hungry, leave stuffed)
