We bring Churrasco-Rotisserie and cook all of the meat on Rodizio skewers right in front of you. The aromatic flavors are so intense, they might steal the show. We prepare different cuts of Certified Angus Beef, pork, lamb, shrimp, poultry, and beef and pork sausages, roasted slowly to maintain their natural flavors. Next, you’ll watch our Gauchos slice the meat off the cooking skewers as the juices flow onto your plate.

Great meal! Food was fantastic, service was even better. There was always lots of food circulating about and when we asked for a specific meat, it was at our table in under a minute.

The salad bar was perfect, not too much like most Brazilian steakhouses. Usually there’s just so much that it’s just too much and overwhelming.

Meats were all fantastic. Had a hard time picking our favorite!

Great meal, great service and great atmosphere.

Great service and delicious food. Only thing I can say bad about the place is the lack of parking. It looks as though valet is your only option.

Amazing, good quality food and service! We were seated a little later than our reservation time, but the staff was kind to give us both a drink on the house. Such a good value for all the food you get access to! Sitting near the live music was a bit loud, but it was a great ambiance.

Restaurant week was a great experience. The food was delicious and staff made sure we had everything we needed. Glass was never less than half full, and the meats were cooked to preferred doneness. The live music was also a nice touch. The only thing I didn't like was the valet only parking.

Hands down the best Brazilian Churrascuria we have ever been too. The staff was extremely nice and informative and personable. Management was consistent in checking on us to make sure everything was going well. The food was great and it was such a cozy feel to the whole restaurant. We celebrated our anniversary there and they even acknowledged it with our dessert (management even stopped by our table to tell us Happy Anniversary). We will definitely be returning customers moving forward!

First timers and they provided truly exceptional service.
Food was phenomenal.
Music was perfect!

Roofing paint is coming apart and fell in our drinks twice. No issue with us since they replaced them. Just FYI don’t know if waitress informed management.

Best Brazilian Steakhouse experience we’ve had! Salad bar was beautiful and fresh. Cheese bread was heavenly. Meat was seasoned perfectly and cooked exactly to each of our preference. Unbeatable price of $19.99 for lunch.
Talked with the owner’s dad who was so friendly! Made us feel at home!

I went for restaurant week, choosing Tourao over 2 other Brazilian steakhouses on the list, my favorite not being one available; bad choice on my part. Whoever reviewed this restaurant on YELP was either is a relative or was hungry. I thought all Brazilian places would be the same, trying to compare this experience to Chama Gaucha. Save your money, eat at Chama Gaucha's.

Very tasty meats and the "salad" bar is full of interesting flavors. Exceptionally attentive service and a wonderful ambience. Different from other Brazilian steakhouses, in best possible way.

The salad bar was very good but the chicken and sausage skewers were very dry and all cuts were salty. The only cut of meat I liked was the sirloin. They did not acknowledged our occasion and the restaurant was not cool.

Everything was wonderful. Staff was extremely attentive and in addition to bringing around the meats and seafood, also asked if we had any special requests. They asked about how we liked things cooked and the the temperature of all the carved meats was perfect. I was surprised they had the open salad and sides buffet, but all staff were wearing masks and we were there early so we felt comfortable. Highly recommend the sangria to compliment your meal.

I used the OpenTable app and it made my dining experience at Touráo Brazilian Churrascaría pleasant from the moment we walked in the door. I simply gave my name and were seated quickly. Thank you Tourao for the great service and hospitality. You never disappoint.

We were a group of 4 and the service was exceptional. We were told about the cuts beforehand and the staff was very careful since we had only halal cuts and no pork. I appreciated their hospitality and definitely look forward to going back. Our waitress was also very sweet and recommended great drinks and brought out a complimentary dessert for 2 of my friends birthdays!

Brought my mother and family here for her birthday and lets start off by saying this menu on here on open table is WRONG AND NOT TRUE, they do not sell anything by the lb, i was looking for a not so expensive Brazilian steak house and as far as the menu it says it sells meat by the Lb for $15.95 which sounded reasonable i believe and when we got there they said they so not sell the meat by the lb if not one standard price of $39.99 for the meat which includes salad bar, ended up spending $51 for 1 person because they also include gratuity of 18% but the service was not good and worth my $11 of tip, the servers coming with the meat were rude and just throwing the silver meat plates on the table and pushing plates to the side aggressively instead of being more polite, my brothers had to ask for refills everytime They didnt just come do it, it was a okay experience but for $51 i rather go to chama gaucha or fogo de chao, just my opinion

For some reason the meat was very dry with the pork, chicken and shrimp. The house special was on point. The ambiance is okay but I didn’t get the full affect since we went on a Sunday afternoon around 4pm. The mandatory valet was very confusing bc both sides were blocked off with the orange cones. I was born and raised from Brazil and the food was delicious but the meat in general was okay. Maybe the a la cart dishes will be better.
