Food was absolutely delicious. Gauchos were more than pleasant and knowledgeable about the pieces being served. A must do again restaurant.

We asked that our meat be cooked medium rare, and the filet mignon was well done. Lamb and sirloin delicous. There were nats/small bugs on top of the blue cheese on the salad bar.

Food made me sick later that night. Was not worth the $$ that it cost. Seemed dirty reminded me of a good restaurant in a third world country. Dingy is the best word I have for this place. Would never recommend and will not go back either.

Variety of meat was great; roasted to our desire (medium rare) flavorful and well seasoned. Nice salad bar, and good selection of accompaniments (savory mushrooms, onions, gravy) potatoes, rice, greens with the meat. Much more than we could eat!
Have eaten at several other Brazilian-style restaurants in Chicago, Houston, Dallas & Las Vegas- while Cowboy was not quite up to their level in ambiance and service, it tasted good and was priced reasonably. We will return for another special occasion.

This restaurant is a favorite spot for my family to gather and celebrate. The concept is a fun one that has such a variety of foods to pick from. The old five and dime surroundings make the meal more special. Our waiter was Nick and he was very attentive even though the restaurant was packed. We could not have asked for a better dining experience.

We really enjoy the place for special occasions.

But this last trip ( Sunday 03-04 -18 )we found ourselves waiting for the gauchos to bring out the meat selections. Our plates would be empty and not a gaucho on the dining floor at all. So I made several trips to the bar and mostly had boiled shrimp.

The salad bar is always fresh and wonderful with great choices .

Several of the beef selections were too salty. The lamb chops were very good, I wish they had that by the leg roasted.

Service was poor. Waitress being friendly does not make up for soft drinks not being refilled, waitress having to be told to bring table items like rolls and polenta we knew were standard for this restaurant, etc.

Unfortunately we never had a server. Thank goodness the hostess felt sorry for us and brought us our initial drinks and desserts before the manager finally came over with our bill.

As much as we have loved visiting in the past, I think this will be our last time.

Overpriced and under-seasoned.

This was our second trip and we were not disappointed. Alexis, our waitress was awesome. Stefan made sure we had what meats we wanted and the temperature we prefer. The atmosphere is very nice and enjoyable. The music is nice but you are able to have a good conversation. We love it so much, we gave our son and daughter in law this experience as part of their Christmas gift.

Always fun to have a little bit of every kind of meat all done to perfection. If you just want a steak this isn't the place. But of you want alittle bit of different cuts of meat and different meats this is always the way to go.

Everything was wonderful. We did have one negative. Our silver ware was not well cleaned however the staff quick attended to the matter and took very good care in addressing and serving us.

We will definitely be going again.

The place is rustic (nice way of saying old). Could benefit from remodeling, it has been the same for the past 10 years. Rioz is a better choice and is in a nicer building. The guys bringing around the meat took a while and you have to stay there for about two to three hours to get all the meat. Salad bar seems sparse.

Horrible service and horribly overpriced. If you want to pay a lot for below average, overcooked meat that is not Brazilian in any sense of the word go ahead.

Half the selection as Rios, more expensive, meat was either too bland, tough, fatty, dry, or way too gamey (depending on the animal), they did not bring all the meats to every table, it was a crap-shoot to see what we would be graced with while watching other meats being served on the other side of the restaurant. When the best part of the meal was the marinated mushrooms, you know you made a big mistake coming here. I will never return, Rios is much, much better.
