Not authentic, very Americanize with Southern influence. Gauchos were sparse and when they did come, it was the same 3-4 cuts of meat. Service was also subpar, waitress forgot about our caipirinha didn’t bring it out until we were done eating. I probably wouldn’t come back, not worth the money at all.

Everything about Cowboys was amazing with the exception of our server. He was not very attentive and we had to ask for refills. It was not crowded, so there really wasn't any excuse for the lack of attention. However, that being said, we will definitely be going back in the future and hope the service improves.

Cowboys was a place we would go for special occasions until now. We were so disappointed, usually we only go to the salad bar once because we are brought enough meat that we have to flip disc saying please no more. This time, there were only five tables with people, one meat server came to our table once and never again, my wife asked for meat well done and was told by a server twice he would bring some, to never get any. We over heard the table close to us asking why they were not getting meat so we knew we were not the only ones. We were glad we did not bring guests to eat this time because we would have been embarrassed at the service. Very sad to see what use to be such a fun place go down.

Very happy to see they were doing everything possible to follow the CDC guidelines for indoor dining during the COVID outbreak. From taking temperatures at the front lobby to all employees wearing masks and gloves. I took my elderly mother here to celebrate our birthdays and felt completely safe.

The staff was friendly. The best part of the meal was the salad bar which was not worth the price for this dining experience. The meat, with exception of the flank steak, was either dry, very gamey or seasoned with too much garlic. The Brazilian cheese bread was very dry and did not have any flavor. The deserts were not up to par and not worth the money. This establishment does not compare to the other Brazilian steakhouses that I have visited.

Even after been communicated manager allowed customers to walk up to salad bar without masks. No one enforced the rule and made me really uncomfortable to see all those people walk up without masks.
Why check my temperature at the door and allow no masks around the restaurant? 👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼

We have eaten here with fair frequency, even the first day they opened following COVID lockdown. Although generally a nice experience, tonite was a disappointment.

First, we were greeted at their door with non-relevant, controversial political signage. We generally go there to have a nice, enjoyable experience devoid of current social controversies. I don’t share my points-of-view with them, and I’d appreciate them reciprocating.

Once we opened the door, we were subjected to a masking policy of their own creation. Their own policy allowed for none of the governmentally-recognized exceptions and applied even when social distancing was possible. At first we walked out, then reconsidered since we had driven from another city to get there and were planning to use a Groupon.

After all that which took a heavy toll on the “experience,” the food was only average tonite. I believe in second chances, so I’m hoping for better food and no politics next time.

Didn’t like that they wanted guest to put on gloves to use salad bar, because you have to touch the same box as everyone else to actually get the gloves out. Wish they’d had attendants assigned to go through with guests to make the salads for them instead.

Everything was great absolutely love this restaurant and will be back often, the only thing that I didn't put outstanding was service, the only reason for that was there was one meat server that completely ignored our table everytime, even though we are the 1st table out the door he never once stopped by. Also there was another meat server that seemed grumpy and when he cut the meat he would splatter blood all over the table. We did have to clean the table ourselves multiple times because of that. Overall the rest of the service was amazing along with the food. 9.9/10 from me.

Great time to eat-early bird, restaurant was quiet food was great although salad bar was smaller than before but most of the items were great. Service was good hard to understand server with mask but was ok. Like the food alot, manager was great when I presented him with a problem that we were having with our bill. Cant wait to go back again. with my other friends. We were celebrating Mother's Day since nothing was open to sit down and eat. Would love to get coupons to help with price, but overall we love Cowboy's. Will see you guys sooner rather than later.

The salad bar was very good. The hot bar was very disappointing, rice, black beans, potatoes, mushrooms and collards. Too much starch. Meat was ok, but nothing exceptional.

Food is delicious, but the gauchos were few and far between. We had to ask for lamb chops 5 times - they brought leg of lamb, but that was not what we requested.

Hardly anything came to the table twice. The Picanha came by once.

We LOVE the grilled pineapple, but we waited all meal for it to come out, then the gaucho went other tables and skipped us entirely. We then requested it specifically - and they came out with the cores. NOT appetizing - pineapple cores are tough and chewy, not juicyt and sweet the way the grilled pineapple should be.

I love the food, and the people are friendly, but I will really have to think twice about returning.
