    The Corn Smoked Crab Fingers are exceptional. The original Churrasco steak was incredible...possibly the best steak I've ever had. Best Tres Leches in Houston!

    My wife and I went out for a Saturday night dinner and chose this restaurant because we have been there several times before and they participate in Houston Restaurant Week. I ordered the port tenderloin from the Restaurant Week menu but my wife decided to order the Churrasco Argentino from the regular menu. The food was quite good and the service was excellent. Their plantain chips and sauce are the best I have had anywhere. My only complaint is that the hostess seated us in a small room with a large (12+) family with kids celebrating a birthday. They weren't too noisy but the kids kept running around past our table. I think this is a lack of consideration from the hostess as there were other tables available in the main restaurant, including a booth. My Open Table profile specifically says that I like a quiet spot where I can converse with my wife or friends. I am hearing impaired and even moderate background noise makes it difficult for me to understand normal conversation.

    We enjoyed everything about our HRW meal at Churrasco's. To me, your paella could have done without the habanero cream sauce. It didn't add anything to the wonderful mix of paella flavors, but others may enjoy it.

    The ambiance is more cafeteria style than Upscale restaurant . The taste of the beef and chicken fajitas at $49 is about the same as taco cabana at $9. The portion sizes for 2 was about 4 pouches of dry rice and about 1.5 ounce of frijoles. The chicken almond salad was over drenched with dressing . We will not be back . The server was just that , a server , no recommendations. Most items on website were not on menu .

    Our visit wasn’t perfect but the staff handled it with class and care. We had the Churrasco and Lamp Chops as well as the seafood Trio. All were prepared wonderfully. We also ordered a lobster tail with both of our entrees. This was the only letdown. They both came out dry, looked as if they had been sitting awhile and tasted a bit sour. They had gone bad I’m sure. Once alerted though, they immediately took it away and took the charges off of our bill. The manager came by to apologize and asked what he could do to make it right and we told him nothing else was necessary. We had the churros and dragonfruit sorbet for dessert and they were both amazing! I wish the churros would have came with a little more cinnamon ice cream, but I’m sure they would have brought more if I would have asked. Keep up the great work, Churrascos!

    The food was good with the portion is a bit smaller & the ingredient is less (the walnut in salad is just small bit instead of whole. I understand the price has increased from $20 to $25.

    Since the 1990s during obligatory annual check up at Texas Medical Center we celebrate living at this Churrascos and it never disappoints. Since every plate has ample portions, if you are not skipping any servings, only recommendation I have is to split everything from appetizers to dessert except for your entrée. I like heat so my favorite entree is the churrasco jalapeño and my finale is the flan. No matter your selection be prepared for the culinary equivalent experience of a fine NYC restaurant at very reasonable prices. Disfrútenlo!

    It’s not what it used to be. Very tired space and the Churrascos steak is not a Churrascos steak but rather a skirt steak with chimichurri. It’s as if the recipe for the steak was stolen and nobody bothered to ever write it down. Service was excellent, waiter was very accommodating. A depressing reminder that some old Houston institutions are gone

    I’m always surprised I don’t come here more often. My friend and I split the Churrasco Argentina and it was cooked just right and absolutely delicious. Took the Grilled Snapper home to my husband and he couldn’t rave enough about it. I gave it 4 stars because it is pricey but …….definitely worth going to. (Plantain chips with chimichurri sauce …… yummy)

    Food and service are always great at Churrascos! Today was even better. A big group of people sat next to us and needed extra space. The manager kindly asked us if we could move our table to make space. We did and he later rewarded us with 2 extra desserts! As l said....great service!

    I had moved out of Houston for the last 15 years and just returned. Churassco used to be one of our favorites. Went there last night after many years. Never seen a remodel for the worst before. This used to be an upscale restaurant & now it feels like Olive Garden with bad food.

    My husband & I were in Houston for a concert for my birthday, and this was recommended by my husband’s aunt. We don’t venture out much, so this was new for us. We were very impressed with the service and the food. It was absolutely delicious. We don’t make our way to Houston often. But we will definitely be dining in again when we’re in the area.
