Churrascos - River Oaks
Inspired by Latin cuisine, Churrascos offers the bold flavors of the South American parilla with all its fire and passion. As the preferred caterer of the Houston Texans, Churrascos offers starters including ceviche, arepas armadas and empanadas to our signature dish: chimichurri chargrilled churrasco. Save room for a must try Tres Leches.
With a generous supply of wine pairings, Churrascos warmly transports you to an orchestra of flavor celebrating the grill, the grape, and your guests.
The service was slow due to a large party, but they made up for it with a free wine and dessert.
Very quiet, excellent service and I love the plantain crusted chicken.
My wife and I celebrated our Valentine’s Day there! It was a disappointment! From greeting, seating and the service, everything felt so rushed! Perhaps we were just another pair of eaters on the Valentine’s Day evening conveyor belt of production!
Ordered a side of shrimp bruschetta and they came almost an hour after we finished dinner. We were waiting to leave and they still had not arrived. We asked for dessert to go because the wait was too much and we had to leave. They put the shrimp to go as well and when we got home they smelled disgusting. It was three skinny shrimp wrapped in bacon but it looked like they just threw them in there. Don’t know if I’ll be going back again. Shame because we’ve been going to Churrascos for years now.
Excellent food and service!!
Very enjoyable evening with excellent staff and wonderful food.
We loved the Sunday buffet and will definitely be back!
The food was just ok. It took 45 minutes to bring out our food. Which was quite long. The portions were average. Three ppl In my party order the terra y mar. It did not come with any side orders, for $42.95. That was quite disappointing. The description in the menu was very Misleading. There was absolutely no crab meat in any of the dishes. It was a total waste of money. I complain to the waiter and they brought out a tablespoon of crab meat for each dish. Complete and utter waste of money. We will not be coming back to this location ever!Not to mention we advise the waiter and the hostess upon our arrival that we had a birthday, yet we still did not get the birthday dessert. We were completely unsatisfied. By the way it was a party of seven.
They made a mistake by darkening the room and removing windows - otherwise it is a good place for brunch.
Food was enjoyable. Waiters great but hard to understand. Good brunch.
No one in restaurant could provide us with the password god the guest Wi-Fi which we needed to book Uber. Several WiFi’s showed up but no one knew which one was current or the password for it.
Had a great time. Server was amazing.
We have gone to Churroscos for years and always loved the food and service. We had a bad experience during NYE but was invited back today for a dinner. It was an amazing experience that we usually receive from Churrascos. The GM, Megan, and our waitress, Lency, made our dinner tonight amazing and treated my family so well. It regained my loyalty to Churrascos. The food was wonderful and the service was impeccable. Never had to ask for anything. We will be back and will ask for Lency as a server.
Waiter was attentive and food was good.
Not the Churrasco's that I remember. No big platter of veggies. No white tablecloths. Tables to close together we could barely get in and out. Very noisy. Food prices were outrageous considering the atmosphere is not anywhere the sophisticated place it used to be.
They didn’t have any horseradish, which we requested for the steak plus a couple of other things we requested.
I guess others found out about the special on Wednesdays :) because it was packed! Because of this, service was a little slow. Nonetheless, food was amazing as always.
Don’t know what happen this visit but service and food temp was so poor. The restaurant was very understaffed which caused everything from getting seated to, drinks & appetizers and main course being served with extreme delays.
We were celebrating a birthday. At the end of the meal they had a special thing with lighting the glass and serving tres leches which was wonderful.
Our table was in the bar area and the manager tried to accommodate us for my friend's birthday. There were not any other tables available due to a lot of Christmas parties taking place . She was very helpful and made sure we all had a good time.
Thanks to the Managers for their assistance.
Noise level great but some guys phone next to us dinged the whole time.
Churrascos was wonderful as always!
I am not sure about the graph for noise level. This restaurant is great but sometimes the noise levels can get really high.
Food was great as always! They had a Wednesday special I didn't even know about, it worked out great for our 10 people group! Karina, our server, was so nice, helpful, and knowledgeable about menu. Place is usually very quiet, today, there was a group of ladies having a loud conversation:), but besides that, everything was just perfect!
Churrascos at River Oaks is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is delicious, the service is courteous and prompt, and the atmosphere is perfect for almost any type of celebration or just for a nice dinner. The corn smoked crab fingers are our favorite appetizer - and the steak Churrasco is always an excellent choice. They have a nice selection of wines as well.
IT WAS PERFECT!
Our family enjoyed their Thanksgiving Buffet. Food and service were excellent.
Good food good service and convenient.
Have always loved this restaurant. They did not disappoint on our anniversary, even had a small anniversary table tent on the table when we arrived, with a small gift card inside. They also comped a flaming tres leches for desert. We always always always get the smoked crab fingers appetizer and the Churrasco steak. Bar tender made a proper Moscow mule.
I always enjoy my time spent here. It is perfect for a quiet business dinner. The food is always tasty and the wait staff is always exceptional.
We came back to Houston after a few years of living elsewhere. Churrasco was one of our favorite restaurant. But today's Churrasco is definetly a different thing. Meat lacks the special flavour that it used to have, also the rest was bland and of average quality. Farewell Churrasco, it is just good memory now.
Awful experience with a restaurant I used to love. The prices have been jacked way up and the customer service was terrible. Had a reservation but was told they could not seat us for at least 30 minutes although there were plenty of open tables. They kept my credit card and when I called the next were unwilling to send to me until I spoke to the GM 3 days later. I live in Austin so I couldn’t go in and pick it up. Won’t be returning
Once again we had a Wonderful time there.
Great food and service.
We like the complimentary veggies they provide
I was pleasantly surprised to see the place was not packed at 5:30 PM. We have been a fan of Churrascos for over 20 years. Although I didn’t recognize the place since the updates, it was a completely different look and I like the way it felt inside . Food was spectacular service was wonderful and we all had a great time
Took our son out for a pre-birthday dinner. Everything was perfect. Great, high quality steaks that melt in your mouth. Fantastic, attentive service. Thank you for a really beautiful dinner.
Delicious and always wonderful service. Drinks are top notch.
My husband and really enjoyed your Sunday Brunch. The food was excellent and the service was great!
Good food, mainly the Cuban sandwich . Very good service
