    We did love the wonderful Churrascos brunch (it did not disappoint). The live stations (omelette, crepe, waffle) were amazing!!! The options seem to have been rethought and definitely seems to be perfected. The person price point could be a few dollars less. Nevertheless, it’s an annual experience we love.

    Very hectic at check-in. Had. to wait while they got our table ready. The food was amazing. The Holiday Brunch had lots of choices and we were full before we could try everything. The Tres Letches pancakes were out of this world!

    We arrived at Churascos and were seated pretty quickly. And that’s probably the only positive thing I can say about this place. We ordered and our food took about 25 mins to arrive. We ordered a steak and chicken plate and the steak was not your typical steak. It was probably a cheap skirt steak you can get and your local grocery store. At a price of 55$ you’d expect for the steak to be better quality. The steak was probably 1” thick. I myself buy HEB steaks that are twice as thick for half the price. My wife and I both asked for medium rare. Mine came out as such but hers came out rare. We addressed the waiter and they fixed the problem, about 15 mins later. Our plates came with rice and this tasted like your average microwaveable jasmine rice. At the end of the day we paid 150$ for mediocre food. Definitely would not recommend this place. Completely overpriced for less than average food.

    Love everything about this brunch. It's a Spanish style brunch buffet and so delicious. Well seasoned, so yummy, wide variety to chose from. We did have reservations and it did take a moment for us to be seated but the food was well worth the wait. Will be back!

    We have been going here for the Sunday brunch for a long time. Unfortunately, they do not have all the items they once did. They used to have a iconic, roasted pig as part of the brunch and they no longer have it. They had prime rib and beef tenderloin, but both were not seasoned at all. No au jus or horseradish sauce for the prime rib. The only eggs that were available was the omelette station, which was good. Traditionally brunch should have some more breakfast items, but they didn’t. The ambience is still nice and the desserts are good, especially the crêpe station.

    Overall good experience as usual. My husband had the filet can salsa jalapeña and said it was amazing. I came for the seafood and the sea bass was delicious; perfectly cooked, light and flaky with an amazing citrus sauce. Service was a bit slow to start but everything was great by the end. Nice ambiance at the restaurant. Great for a date night.

    Churrascos always does an excellent presentation for the HRW meals. They had a special HRW menu printed in advance. Yet, they always provide Air Fried plantain chips as a beginner with 2 different in-house dips: a Chimichurri sauce & a Roasted Red Pepper sauce (my favorite). It was a two-course meal for $25, no dessert. The selections were more than filling. We ordered ripe plantains with rum sauce on the side. That was my dessert with coffee & my husband ordered Flan for dessert with coffee. Those were extras, but we didn't mind. Our server was very friendly & pleasant. She filled our requests for extra sauces or slight changes to our plates quickly. She made the experience at Churrascos even nicer. Can't wait for next year's HRW month

    First time trying the Houston Restaurant Week menu. Great options and prices. The restaurant was busy but my waiter was very attentive and gave us a great experience. The Salmon and Carme Asada we had was very tender and juicy, I don’t know what condiments are used but it was flavourful. Thanks for the amazing experience, we will be back!

    It took a long time to get our meals after ordering. All four of us ordered steaks, two 6 oz. and two 8 oz. My 6 oz. steak was larger than my husband’s 8 oz. steak. All of our steaks were cold and were very bland, (didn’t have the flavor of Churrasco’s usual steaks at original location). Fried yuccas were dry and hard, unlike the good ones at original location. The only saving grace were the Tres Leches cakes. We ordered two of them for the four of us. Management did not ask us to pay for them so that was nice. That said, we would not go back to this location again.

    Churrasco's food has always been incredible. They have vegetarian, fish, and the churrasco steaks which are outstanding. The vegetables are well-cooked and healthy. The plantain chips and sauces are unique in the city. The service I experienced last night was also top notch - knowledgeable but not pushy.
