Churrascos - River Oaks
I have been here many times and the steak is always cooked to order, melts in your mouth.
The food was very good, it had great flavor. The portions are small considering the prices. The atmosphere is outdated and the salsa music that was playing was overwhelming. I lived in Latin America for 6 years and my wife is Colombian. The food represented very well the flavors of Latin American. Just a miss on the restaurant’s presentation that took away from the experience.
Very good overall, but not great. Maybe it's just the wonkiness of COVID, but things seemed a bit down from past experiences - although it's been many years since we last dined at Churrasco's. We'll definitely be back, and it's still one of our favorite places to dine.
This is a great Houston operation and sad to see such low dining activity in the last couple times I was there. Not sure how they are keeping the lights on.
Nice patio dining and good service.
The salmon was delicious. Ready to go back and have more. Very quiet! Quick services, very attentive! Thank you
My sister Donna Kester and my brother in law David Kester were celebrating their wedding anniversary.
I love this restaurant and their food. Always a treat and it is our go to restaurant for special occasions for sure!
Wonderful as always. Our choice every year for birthdays and anniversaries!
Great place and great steak for everyday dinning
Delicious! The plantains served with chimichurri sauce at the very beginning are a great surprise. The steak filet was delicious. Went with 8 family members, lots of distance between tables!
The food and service at Churrascos is always consistent and the best of the best. Please support the restaurant during these difficult times - they deserve to serve Houstonians for many years to come
We've missed coming here, to one of our favorite Sunday Brunch spots, due to the Pandemic. However, Churasscos is doing all they can to ensure social distancing, while maintaining the same level of excellent customer service.
Yes, the buffet is gone (except for the Omelette, Waffle and small carving station), but they offer a lot of the same items 'from the menu'. Basically, they give you a menu of many of those same buffet items, and you have the option to order the dishes one or two (or more) at a time.
The mimosas and Mojitos are still great, and again, while we miss the ambiance and fun of the buffet, the food is still great, and the service, wonderful!
I thought this restaurant was a good choice for a birthday dinner celebration. I called the day of and I was able to make the reservation that same day for later that night. The reservation was for 12 people and some of us got there earlier than others. We got there about 30 min after everyone else and some of the people that were there hadn’t gotten their drinks yet. The bar was backed up and we had to wait a while for our drinks. The waiter took only a few orders before walking away. I don’t know if there was a shortage on staff but the service wasn’t great. Our waiter lacked good customer service. The food was good but I don’t think I’d recommend this place for a big event.
This River Oaks standby has come back after Covid-19 and is getting the job done. Dined indoors, but there was some outdoor seating. Service is always excellent and the restaurant is consistently clean and kept-ip.
Some people were too loud
The service was exceptional, the staff was very accommodating to our large party and everyone was happy with the food.
Excellent food as always! It was the perfect date night... not too noisy. Just a perfect meal from beginning to end!
This was our family's first time dining at Churrasco's, but it definitely will not be our last! The food and service were amazing! Everything tasted very fresh and our server Juan was extremely friendly and attentive.
Food was good. Service was excellent. Nothing else to say but this section wants a certain amount of characters I suppose so this last sentence gets it there.
Just a lunch date but, it was wonderful.
Went during Restaurant Weeks. So good, and such a great deal!
Fresh delicious food every freaking time! Such sweet service all around!
I was a bit disappointed. Churrascos had been a favorite many years ago and I looked forward to dining there with friends this past weekend. Empanadas were delicious but my entree and their specialty lacked the flavor and tenderness I remember from the old days.
Great South American food and services.
Service was not up to the level expected from a restaurant of this level. There was hardly anyone in the restaurant so it could not be have been because they were too busy.
Houston Restaurant Week menu was great! The booths has extra fabric to keep diners separated.
Fantastic food during Houston Restaurant Week. The Pisco Sours were excellent, the steak was cook to the correct temperature, the tres leches was to die for, and the service was 10/10. Will definitely return soon!
Amazing dinner for a first date. Quiet, yet nice ambience. And food is always amazing!
Churrascos is always excellent in every way, and we have been dining in different locations across Houston since the late 1980's. There was only one other couple there that night, which I sincerely regret I really hope times change SOON!
An outstanding [albeit quiet] experience!
Was expecting more so we were disappointed. Food was ok nothing special.
Excellent food and service. Felt comfortable being there because the restaurant had a number of COVID-19 precautions in place.
Would definitely recommend them
This place used to be amazing - based upon my going there for over 20 years. The service and “experience” is a shadow of what it once was. The food is still good but all the wonderful little details that used to be part of the experience are no longer there. And these comments precede the current virus changes. For the price involved there are too many options that meet or exceed Churrascos today.
The food I was served was overcooked. Both the meat and the vegetables. The waiter was pleasant although struggled with English, I believe. Partly this was a result of him having the mask. I was very glad to see all staff wearing masks. This is the first time we have eaten in a restaurant since the staying at home began in March. We chose this restaurant because our neighbors who are moving back to Australia really like it so it was intended to be a special going away dinner for them.
Good food, we ordered Parriallada for 2. Great dipping sauces. Clean locale and great service. Our go to now when visiting Houston.
While we miss the usual Sunday Brunch buffet, I was pleased that Churrascos offered many of the items that persona could order by menu. My suggestion is to provide a description of some of the items, because it was hard to remember which items we usually select from the buffet. We also missed a couple of our favorites, the smoked salmon and the short ribs. But, happy to see one of our favorite brunch restaurants open again!
Food was great, staff was attentive and gave us great food recommendations.
Great food and service. We always enjoy eating here and the tres leches is the best in town.
