Completely blown away. The salad bar was incredible! Everything was so fresh and inviting. Had to control ourselves and save room for what we came here for. And then it happened. The meat courses were so succulent and juicy. The chefs approach this one by one by one and continue to offer us there bountiful feast until we were finally... More

We picked Estancia Churrascaria of the two Brazilian Steakhouses in Austin, due to the reviews we had checked out and the word of mouth we had received on this place. It was a great choice. We really enjoyed it, the meats were top quality and the service was unbelievable. The meal comes as a two course meal, one is the... More

Some in our party had eaten at a good many churrascarias, so their opinion is reflected in this review. Firstly the setting, which is traditional-recreated, with some interesting paintings. The tables are of a good size - important with this style of food - and with enough room between them for the skewer-and-knife-wielding servers to swing by. The salad bar... More

My wife and I were invited to a retirement party held at Estancia's near the Arboretum in Austin. The atmosphere was very festive and indicative of Brazil. The self serve salad bar was exceptional. There was much to chose from and everything was fresh and crisp. You are given a small disk at the table which you use to indicate... More

A new colleague joined my team, and I was really hungry for dinner, so we headed to Estancia a mile or so from our hotel. I'm used to Fogo and Texas de Brasil, and while this restaurant had the polish of those two, it felt local. Hard to say anything unique about the meal itself--an overwhelming salad bar that you...

Being Father's day, I got to pick which restaurant our family got to visit. We had been here before, but we limit our visits due to it being such a decadent and indulgent feast. We also had my 3 year old granddaughter, so we had some concerns as to boredom limitations. Our server, Marty, put us at immediate ease by... More
