Great deal on weekends!

Our friends are giving the competition a run for their money. The quality of the cuts is similar or better than other gaucho restaurants.

This place has a cool atmosphere. We made reservations but arrived early and had drinks at the bar while we waited. We were seated right on time at a nice table. We were against the wall next to the wine room. I'm really glad because there is a LOT of foot traffic and sitting in the middle amongst it all... More

I have tried 6 other brazillian/south american steakhouses and Estancia's cuts of meat i had this night were all very good. the sirloin was a little salty and the lamb leg was a little gamey but all very good. The wine list was excellent and the tropical capriniha was quite different but i enjoyed it.

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
