Its namesake – the famed Cordúa Churrasco steak - sparked Houston’s Latin American revelation 25 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.

Churrascos remains my favorite restaurant in Houston. It never fails to impress me with every visit.

When we arrived, the valet was not present to park our car. From the outside, the restaurant appeared to be closed, so we had to try several doors before we found one that opened. The restaurant was hard to find since it was actually downstairs instead of on the street level. Better signs would have been helpful. The food was good, but the portion sizes were small (especially the coconut ice cream) and the prices were a bit high. Some of the items we wanted were not available, so that was a bit disappointing. On the plus side, there weren't many other diners (which I thought was odd since it was lunchtime on a weekday), so the room was very quiet. The dining room was also a great place to relax and watch people walk/run along the waterway.

After 20+ years of visiting the Cordua family of restaurants, I have had an experience that reminds me that in spite of years of building a reliable name, the secret to success is in the hiring process. We arrived at 6:30 for a 7 p.m. reservation and were immediately seated as our table was available (we were a party of 5). We ordered within 15 minutes and our appetizers arrived around 7 p.m. Everything was going great. Unfortunately the wheels came off after that. We waited an hour after appetizers for the entrees to arrive. The waiter explained that the kitchen staff was running slow because they did not expect a rush at 7 p.m. on the Saturday following Valentine's day. However, the tables around us that ordered after us had eaten their entrees, ordered and consumed dessert, and in at least one case ordered after dinner drinks. All had paid their bills.

My chicken was the texture of particle board and had to be cut like sawing wood. The waiter offered to replace it, but that took over a half hour and was not finished when we left 45 minutes later. When I handed the waiter my card to pay, he unilaterally decided to wait until the chicken was done before bringing the bill, which resulted in a further 30 minute delay. Finally at 8:45, with a sleeping child and everyone done with their entrees, I went to the front asked them to find my credit card, paid the full bill and left a tip, and left. No chicken ever arrived. In short, HORRIBLE SERVICE, POOR FOOD, LONG WAITS, and NO SINCERE EFFORT TO REMEDY THE SITUATION. Absolutely deplorable restaurant. If you love Cordua restaurants, go to the America's in River Oaks area or Churrasco's on Westheimer. AVOID THIS LOCATION UNTIL NEW EMPLOYEES AND A NEW MANAGER ARE HIRED.

Loved the atmosphere, decor and a great view of The Woodlands waterway. The service was very good, attentive without being an annoyance. Our steaks were good, not great, but all things considered we will return.

Outstanding service, food and desert. They were very busy and still performed flawlessly. The manager waited on us and did a fantastic job.

Slow service. They seemed surprised that Saturday night was that busy and weren’t prepared... food was good

Peruvian and Argentinian home cooking at steakhouse prices. Our server lacked attention and the sangria was not good at all, its alcohol content was too high and had no fruit like the Rea sangría should have.

This is still our favorite restaurant in The Woodlands. Five of us arrived early for our 7:30 reservation on a very busy Friday night so the manager set us up in the large private room which proved to be unsuitable for us as there was a large party of very noisy ppl already there.
He was kind enough to move us after a few minutes to the smaller room next to the waterway. Arturo was our great and charming waiter, he was very attentive and competent . He entertained us with a delicious flaming dessert which was evidently comped by the manager. Food was as always spot on. We had lobster and shrimp bisque, crab taquitos, pork taquitos, lamb chops, and a very interesting and different Amazon burger.

Different experience for brunch. Loved the Latin influence. Desserts too sweet and the crepes were a little thick, but the plaintain chips, yucca, sliced steak with chimichurri sauce, fish selection and salads were excellent.

Went for a girlfriends birthday and loved it! Our server was amazing, the manager frequented our table, and the birthday girl got the best birthday amazing tres leches (with a nice fire show). It was so neat! We loved it.

While we enjoyed our meal they were out of many dishes and signature drinks.

Our ceviche was supposed to come chips however it came with 3 pork rinds, which seemed odd for the size of the dish.

It seemed like they were out of every type of beer I wanted to order... I think they were out of 3 different types of beer.

Food and service were excellent. Manager came by to check that everything was ok. The birthday cake demo was awesome. Cake tasted great. Will definitely go back.

We decided to celebrate our son's birthday here. We had been to Churrascos before and loved the food. We were not disappointed. The food was good, as always, and the wonderful view of the Waterway was a nice touch. They made flaming tres leches for the birthday boy, which was a fun ending to a great evening. We will definately be back!

The food is well-prepared and the staff friendly; it can be a little pricey for what you get but the atmosphere is kind of romantic and the overall experience was nice
