Chama Gaucha - you won't go hungry!

We celebrated my husband's birthday with lunch at Chama Gaucha - our first visit. Our daughter had told us about it so we were excited to try it. The decor is impressive with walls of wine bottles - table sections are divided by wood / glass partitions. The extensive salad bar is located in the... read more

Loved the food, in true Brazilian Rodizio style, the picanha was not as salty as I have tasted in Brazil, but this Americanized version was still mouth watering. Overall one of the better churrasco's I have tasted in the US. Eat all you want and prepare yourself by arriving hungry. Just be sure to tell the staff what your favorite... More

Perfectly cooked meats of all types. It might seem expensive, but it is very good value for money. We had also a very nicely prepared Capirinha and a good Malbec. At the beginning it was very noisy with a happy bunch of Asian business people laughing so loud at unison that I could not hear myself thinking, but they left... More

I do love Brazilian steakhouses, but probably not as much as others in my family. The food is good and we always feel that we do not get the best meats until the end. I love the bacon wrapped meats and the garlic beef. Others in my group of 9 family members like the filet and the rib eye. The... More

We were taken here by a friend who lives in Houston on our first night when we were in town visiting him. He pre-warned us not to eat a big lunch due to what was coming in the evening. What a place! To start with you have to appreciate the salad bar. Having been in the US for nearly three... More

This is first of all, a meat lover's paradise but before throwing yourself headlong into saying "Yes, Please" to Every Gaucho that comes by (there is a disc at your table, one for each person that is red on one side for stop, and the other side is green for go), be sure to taste some of the Beautifully Displayed...

After returning from Vegas we invited a few friends to celebrate our wedding...yeah! Drinks were great, salad bar was an added treat and the meat was cooked with perfection (succulent-moist and tasty)...everyone was fat and happy! The service was going good until it was time to roll away from the table and hope to make it to the car without... More

While visiting Houston with my 17 year old son from London, we have been disappointed with the quality of a number of the restaurants. That has just been blown out of the water by our visit today to this restaurant. You pay a fixed price and the meat keeps coming piping hot out of the kitchen, and sliced (for steak)... More
