Always a treat! Don’t even bother looking at the menu – between the wide variety of salad items, cold meats, cheese, soups and fruits at the buffet and the servers wandering by with skewers of perfectly done meats, to stick with one dish there would be cheating yourself of dozens of other delights! I can’t say anything about their desserts, because I’ve never had room to try one after dining there, but they look amazing. Someday!

Great food! I love the cheese bread. It is worth it in it's self. Some of the meat was virtually flavorless but all was cooked to perfection.

Other than the beef consistent being a little dry, the food was excellent. The servers should ask more often what the customer prefers for meat.

Excellent!!

We have fined here before, but this visit was during restaurant week to compare to Texas de Brasil. Way better!

Best salad bar of any of the chrrascurias. Delicious cuts of meat and plenty of it!

Not reason I’m giving 4 stars instead of 5 is because the server who initially greeted us seemed discouraged because we were trying the $35 special instead of the full $55 experience. Took a little while to get our beverages and sides. Another server took over and was friendlier and more helpful.

Highly recommended for special occasions, or if you just want a lot of steak!

We made a reservation and our table was ready upon arrival. Waitresses were at our table immediately taking our drink orders and explaining how everything worked. Service was always quick, never wanted for a clean plate or additional drinks. In addition, one of the managers stopped by our table and inquired about our service and quality of our food 3 or 4 times during our meal. Food was great. Had a great experience and would recommend this to everyone.

Overall the food was good. They kept trying to push food that was not on restaurant week. They made it seem like it was part of the special and it was annoying when they didn't adequately explain it. At one point we were given a basket of Brazilian bites that had a hair in it. We sent it back and they gave us complimentary desserts but then they made it seem that the coffee came with it.

The food was fantastic but the service wasn’t very good. Our server asked for our drink order and we told her we wanted a few minutes to decide but she never came back to get our drink order. Another server stopped by and we asked them if we could order drinks. Then when it came time for the main course we weren’t sure what to do with our plates or how to get new ones and another server stopped by our table to help us out. We didn’t see our actual server again until the bill came. I hope that they split tips because our server did not deserve our tip.

The food was great the service however was somewhat lacking it seemed as if they were shortstaffed on waiters as a result often times we sat waiting for more water and drinks. We went for restaurant week and we’re glad we did as the price was reduced in for motion of restaurant week.

Same thing as last time. Trash service, horrible food that is supposed to be a Brazilian steakhouse turns into Brazilian order. Tell them which one you want and they will bring you that & more of what you don’t want (lamb chops). I understand me and my girlfriend are in our 20’s but treat your first table like your last, going to Chama gaucha from here on out for sure.

The manager or floor manager is an absolutely gem, she looked like she was handling every table and taking it to the next level. Regular servers moved much slower than her, had to ask for multiple refills of side dishes, second round of drinks took so long it wasnt very enjoyable to eat with the food then mix that with a dessert. That floor manager saved the experience without her I would have been quite upset that we went there for my birthday. They also asked if we were celebrating anything I said my birthday and they never offered or did anything. In Dallas when I graduated they brought me a slice of cake and drizzled congrats graduate so that was disappointing they didn't go above and beyond like other fogos. In my opinion fogo has gone from my 1st spot to 2nd. Galpo Gaucho is just really on there game for everything
