Brazilian Steakhouse
Top Tags:

The plains of Southern Brazil are filled with grazing cattle enjoying the vast pastures. These cattle are the source for the famous and centuries old Brazilian “Churrasco” barbecues. It was at these gatherings where Brazilian cowboys or “gauchos” would prepare large pieces of meat and slowly cook them over open flame pits. Our traditional gaucho chefs still follow these traditions to preserve the flavors of each cut of meat.

Father’s Day weekend. We were seated quickly, servers were nice and helpful but were extremely aggressive trying to take plates away to turn the table. Salad bar was fresh but was less than remarkable in its offerings. The cuts of meat were good but every thing was very poorly seasoned, if at all, except for the bacon wrapped chicken. Wine list was highly overpriced compared to other area restaurants. We were disappointed, Texas de Brazil never disappoints.

This was our second visit to Gauchos Do Sul, and we again left with smiles on our faces (and very full bellies!). If you've been to places like Fogo, then you know what to expect. Meat, and lots of it. Plus a very good salad bar (with a nice Lobster Bisque to boot) and a great selection of cocktails and wine (and probably beer too, but we didn't look). I had both a traditional and tropical caipirinha, which most people would compare to a mojito. A little too much ice for my liking, but it is a great cocktail and pairs perfectly with the salad bar and meats.

The restaurant layout has an intimate feel to it; you can be next to a group of 8, but still feel like you have some privacy, especially if you choose a table next to a wall. The Gauchos energetically move from table to table, and carve the meats with great precision. Every cut was prepared exactly the way we asked (medium rare for us), and they even nailed the portion sizes (many places cut huge slices when you may just want a sample or smaller piece).

We found all of our selections to be very flavorful and fresh, and other than the Pincaha (which is always the best cut at these types of restaurants), we highly recommend the beef ribs (they slice the meat from the ribs...so yummy!). But try everything. It's all good.

For dessert, get the Papaya Cream, even if you feel like you're going to explode. I promise that the claims of "helping digestion" are true. It definitely helps the stomach feel less full.

Our only complaint, and it's happened on both visits, is that the time to pay the check after the meal is finished takes way longer than it should, but that is truly a nit pick on our part.

The owners both checked up on us frequently throughout the meal, and our waiter (who handles drinks and side dishes) was very attentive throughout our meal as well.

This is a great restaurant in the Northwest Harris County area, and I believe is better than those closer to Houston. Give it a try.

Everything we had tasted great. All the meats were seasoned perfectly and were always fresh and sizzling hot. The service was also great, we were never left wanting for anything. We both felt the quality, variety, and amount of food we were able to have, were definitely worth the price.

The salad bar is quite elegant and impressive. The servers are very attentive to the tables. The location is perfect and parking is a breeze. My boyfriend and I truly enjoyed our first dining experience there. We'll be back, maybe not for all the meats, but certainly for the salad bar and seafood options.

My son wanted to try a Brazilian steakhouse for his graduation celebration, and Gauchos Do Sul did not disappoint. I feel their meat options are extensive and of high quality. Their salad/cheese options were also raved about by the party in attendance, and the sangria was a solid addition to the meal. I would definitely recommend this restaurant, and we will be back.

We visited Gauchos Do Sul (GDS) for the first time on 5/16/18 to celebrate my husband’s 60th birthday. My husband has always wanted to eat at a Brazilian restaurant and I chose to surprise him with dinner at GDS. I was nervous because I really wanted this surprise to be a hit. We both had such a wonderful time and the food was magnificent! The staff at GDS was so kind, patient, wonderful and attentive. Visit the GDS website to learn more about the restaurant. I think everyone should experience a dining adventure like the one we had at GDS.

The food is incredible and the ambiance is great. Our first visit to Gauchos Do Sul was to celebrate Mother's Day and it was a great choice. My only complaint was that we were forgotten by the wait staff who handle deserts and the check. After asking a number of the "meat guys" our drinks person finally brought us a small piece of Tres Leches to go - about half the size of those we saw being brought to the tables around us. I was going to complain until it took another 5 minutes to get our check and by that time we just wanted to get out of there.

We'll be back but will pay much more attention to who is serving us and make sure we have a person assigned to us.

I took my wife there for Mother's Day and it was a marvelous experience! Service was great and then was outdone by the food! At $50/person, more than I normally spend, but certainly a good value for a special occasion. I heartily recommend.

We have been to Gauchos on several occasions. It is our go to location for a special holiday or date night. This particular night all the right cuts of meat were seasoned to perfection and even the salad bar was awesome. Service is exceptional and our glasses were never empty. We always had fresh plates and the server were attentive with the amount, style, and 'doneness' of the meats that we prefer.

I had a friend recommend it after I told her I was looking for a nice place to take my wife for her birthday. I made reservations and was seated 15 minutes early with no problems. From the moment we were seated we were made to feel special, the order of the restaurant was explained to us by the staff who were very comforting. As we begin our meal the wait staff was very attentive filling our glasses, bringing extras and removing things when they could tell we were done. As well we notice the pride they took in clearing the tables when quest had left. It was a great all around experience.

This was the second time to visit the restaurant and as the first it was great. Ledersan and Daison were great as was all of the staff. The salad bar alone is worth going to this restaurant. The selection of wines was outstanding. The new Brazilian wine we tried was fantastic. As for the meats and seafood, everything was wonderful, but the rib eye steak was superb. This place is great!

This restaurant is for serious meat lovers. There were 15 different meat courses they bring you. I tried most, but not all of them. The ones I tried were all good, but some were memorable they were so delicious. The salad bar rivals the very best out there with salads, cold meats, cheese, marinated veggies, and bread. The cheese rolls are yummy!
You have to pace yourself and take small portions or you won’t make it through. It is an enormous quantity of food, and everything is so good I wanted to try everything. That was not possible for me. We all tried something off the dessert menu, and although only a few of us could finish the large portions, they were all really good. There were seven of us celebrating my son’s 16th birthday, and it was pricey but worth it.

I loved it! Honestly, I thought the food was better seasoned here, than at Chama Goucha, Texas de Brazil or Fogo de Chao. We probably eat at one bbn of those chains at least 6 times a year. The only protein that I thought was better at the chains was the picana. I also liked that you didn't have to pay extra for seafood selections. There was a shrimp cocktail on the salad bar and grilled shrimp and salmon for entrees. The only side dish I eat is the mashed potatoes. They were actually seasoned and quite good. Usually, they are bland.

The service was awesome. The waiter was attentive and asked what selections we wanted and he actually followed up on our requests. Also, management came by often to check on our meal.

The ambiance was nice and not too loud. Staff was attentive and friendly. Food was great! We will definitely be back, in the future.
