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.
Seems like the food is. A bit different now and not in a good way
We went for Sunday brunch and it was terrible. All the hot food was lukewarm - cold. The food tasted like leftovers and dried up food. It used to be such a great place to eat. The desserts are still amazing.
Best steak in Houston. Been going there for over 20 years.
The service was excellent and the food was delicious!

Still one of our favorite places for Sunday Brunch! Churrascos always has a larger and fresh variety of options, including your traditional(omelettes, pancakes, bacon) and South American(empanadas, plantains, cerviche, etc.) A wonderful, mini- dessert selection, including Queso Flan, mini tres leches, cheesecake, and cotton candy for the kids, rounds out the meal. If you like cocktails, there is a spicy Bloody Mary, a wonderfully fruity (but potent-LOl) sangria, Mojito(one of the best I’ve had!) and Mimosas. We often brought out-of-town guests here, but we love it as well!
We got there and it was empty. Quiet and clean. Food was wonderful
We enjoyed our meal at Churrascos. The steaks, short ribs, and chicken were excellent. As well, the tres leches is the best in the city. The servers did an outstanding job.
It was a great experience for us and our guests. Food and service was excellent.
A local favorite in slight decline. :(
The waitress who came to receive us, came with a very unpleasant look and attitude... like we were bothering her. It was not a good start for us ... not coming back
We were celebrating a birthday and the birthday person was given Tres Leches cake with no charge. Service attentive. Food good. We had a good time.
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.
