Very pleased with our experience. I took my husband as a surprise, and he was so excited to try all of the different selections. I wish they would add another green vegetable to the hot bar, maybe green beans. but other than that, it gets a 10/10 from me! The chocolate cake for dessert was wonderful, as well :)

For the price I expected something different? The food was good - and ample!! And the servers were good. Parking was a challenge. For the price and quality - there’s better options in Winston Salem.

We enjoyed our meal at Cowboy Brazilian Steakhouse-Winston Salem. The service was very good, the food, exceptional. You could easily make a meal from the salad bar alone but wouldn't want to miss the delicious, meats.

This was my first experience here and we absolutely loved it. They were always there to refill your drink and to make sure you were enjoying everything. We will be going back. Rickey was our server and he was great.

This was a disappointing experience. I have been to these restaurants before and had great service and experiences. This trip I found that even with a reservation I was offered to sit at a bar booth. I had indicated on the reservation it was for a birthday and that I would wait for a table. I was offered to sit in the worst table where I suggested somewhere else. I had to find someone to take our drink order and everyone around us pretended they didn't see us sitting there!! (?)
Please have someone explain why the hostess (manager) would come to every table but ours to see if things were ok? It did not go unnoticed. I plan 'on Yeping' also a review.

It was an amazing experience. I eat frequently at Cowboy Brazilian Steakhouse in Winston Salem and this was one of the best. The hostess was super nice (I can't remember her name), Ricky our waiter was the BEST (he knows how to be a waiter and I will most definitely ask for him again), and Zack the gaucho was AWESOME (he figured out the meats my daughter and myself like and kepted them coming and along with his personality, he will go far). I have told many of my friends about this experience and I can not wait to go back and I hopefully will have the same experience.

The cold bar was smaller than other Brazilian restaurants in this area. The collard greens on the hot bar were undercooked. The meats were decent. It was my son's birthday and he enjoyed himself which is all that mattered

We went for Father’s Day and were there for two hours and left still hungry because the people kept skipping over our table because they were running out of food. We’ve been before and had good service and food but definitely won’t go back on holidays.

We love this place, come here for all celebrations. This visit however was a little disappointing. Long waits for the gauchos to come around and requested items took forever to come to our table. It's not normally like this and it was Father's Day, but we've been in on busy evenings before and never had this issue.

It may have been an off night, or we did not know what to expect??? The salad bar was predictable and the meat was ok (nothing outstanding) but to me it was a little too much. I am not sure if this is a great way
to showcase fine cuts of meat or a style of eating. We did not eat a lot...

A friend and I dined at Cowboy's for my friend's birthday dinner. When we checked in the host commented that we were there for a birthday and I confirmed, I had entered this information on-line when making the reservation. Upon ordering desserts when they were served no Happy Birthday was written on his plate, no birthday song was sung. I was very disappointed.
A server came out several times with pineapple which I would have loved for my friend to try. But alas we did not as the server always started at the larger parties and never visited the smaller parties of 2-3 people.
Also, the choice of meats was disappointing. Sirloin seemed to be the meat of choice for the night. Filet Mignon was served when we asked and had to wait a good 10-15 minutes for this. This tells me it was only served when asked for. After we had started our dessert did I see sausages served? Again it was mostly sirloin served that night. Personally, I do not enjoy sirloin as I feel it is a cheaper less appetizing meat. I was disappointed that on a Friday night with a 7:00 reservation that more varieties of meats were not served.
On a positive note, our waitress was wonderful and very friendly. Also, our desserts; Creme Brulee and New York Cheesecake was amazing!

All you can eat meat, can't go wrong. If I won the lottery this is the only place I'd eat. Every cut of meat was amazing and the servers were great

From the moment of arrival to the time we left, we were greeted with smiles! Our waitress, Tatiana, was awesome...she would refill our drinks or clear our plates and sometimes we didn’t even realize she had until she was walking away! We never lacked for drink or table space! The young men bringing the meats around kept us spoiled, especially Jose who once he realized how much I liked the sirloin, always made sure to stop at our table! All of the meats offered were tried by members of our party and we left there with our bellies quite full and happy!
I can say with certainty that we will definitely be back!!

It was a great first-time experience! I like the fact that you can take a small amount to try it and if you like it you can get more, or if you don't like it, you don't waste too much food.
The key lime pie is rather flavorless compared to key lime pie from Bonefish Grill. The cheesecake is flavorful!
I like the outfits the waiters wear.
Our waitress was super helpful in explaining the "procedures" since we had never been to this type restaurant before. She was very happy and vivacious.
the restaurant was very clean.
I liked that it was not crowded and we got to sit by a window.
The variety of meats was good also.
