Latin American
Its namesake – the famed Churrasco steak - sparked Houston’s Latin American revelation 30 years ago, and the flame is still burning strong at Churrascos.

The tantalizing menu mixes up native Latin ingredients with the unexpected for a culinary line-up that is as artful as it is delightful, including bacon-wrapped shrimp taquitos, ethereally light angel wings, bahia grilled chicken, yuca fries, and, of course, the award-winning Churrasco – voted one of the best 20 steaks in America by Esquire magazine.

Churrascos is the official caterer of the Houston Texans.

This Churrascos is my favorite. Excellent waitstaff and they went the extra mile to make the fried French toast which is no longer included in the buffet.

Excellent decorations and ambiance - good location

Waited about 10 minutes to be greeted and also seated. Many others were waiting with us.

Waiter was excellent - very attentive and willing to provide the service.

Only issue was - once my steak came out - it was barely warm and I had to send it back to be grilled a bit more to get some heat on it, but by then it was not a Med rare steak. My wife's food came out excellent

We could tell the wait staff was fairly new, I asked for my steak to be cooked medium rare, an it was medium well, thus ended up sending it back and waiting-while my wife ate.

We chose this restaurant for my friends birthday lunch, I was not familiar with this location, always eat at the original location. The waiter was informed we were not in a rush and they had numerous open tables during lunch. The waiter was discurtious and impatient and did not offer refills we had to request and then request the same refill numerous times. He stated he was leaving and turned us over to another wait staff who was more pleasant behaving but also very odd behaving and said at 3 pm I need to close this check out now it was the oddest and most unpleasant experience I have ever had ever in a restaurant.
We tipped $25.00 for the hideous service because we occupied the table for about 4-5 hours (the restaurant never filled and was completely dead at 2pm) after we cashed out around 3 pm we never saw any wait staff again.
I will NEVER return to this location again, the ambiance is quite nice but the service was hideous!!!

We are a challenging group. There were nine of us, and we requested separate checks. Our server didn’t bat an eye. Some arrived late, some had to leave early. Others lingered over dessert and coffee. Service was still flawless. Food was great except for one steak that was overcooked- no problem, because it was whisked away and quickly replaced. My meal choice was no longer on the menu. No problem. And then the best bite: the little shortbread cookie sandwiches. Little clouds of perfect flavor and delicate texture. Amazing!

The food is delicious but here is some constructive feedback: It was extremely cold! I had to order coffee and the bisque to stay warm. The bisque was a bit to fishy for my taste but the churrasco and plantain chips were delicious.

They did eventually turn off the air after several people complained. I ordered a cheese cake when my order was taken, they when it was time to serve, I was told they ran out. If I ordered it upfront, why not put it aside? Made the night end on a negative.

Went for dinner with my wife for Valentine’s Day. We went the year before and the restaurant offered a reasonable dinner package. We both had entrees (steak and shrimp), appetizers and ordered a bottle of wine and spent around $125 (includes tip). The portions were great as well as the food quality. This year, the dinner package was $59 per person - we still received appetizers but the entree portions and options were minimal in comparison to the year before. No shrimp with the steak, veggie serving was extremely dwindled, and we had to order rice. The restaurant was FREEZING..it was colder inside than it was outside. I couldn’t help but wonder if this was a tactic to get you in and out more quickly. The server was not on top of his game as well - how do you place a bottle of wine on the table for sale but cannot tell the patrons the price off the top of your head?

We were seated at a small table in the bar next to the kitchen. It felt like a fast food restaurant. The kitchen was next to us so we had to listen to yelling throughout dinner. Had we not made a prior reservation I could be more understanding. The waiter and waitress were outstanding so compliments to those two.

Set us by the kitchen and was told no other tables available however there were multiple booths. Requested to talk to the manager and he would never come over. Waiter took crown/water drink from table hat has half finished then asked if I wanted another. Mentioned to the waiter that the lobster bisque had a extremely strong seafood taste when asked how it was and he told us to just poor some wine in it and it will fix anything.

We just expected better service after spending $350. We will not be back to this location.
