Very good, beef, and more beef

Just had a nice business lunch here, but ate too much, and we skipped the whole salad bar distraction. We just went for the beef, and wow, it was good and lots of it. Nice service, very nice surroundings. Better than the famous Fugo de down the street.

We went for a birthday dinner and it was close to closing time. We had just gotten in from our flight and we were SO thankful they were ready and willing to take us, a party of 8 no less. The meat was so blow-your-mind amazing. I've eaten at many churascarias and this one was by far my number one.... More

Being from Brazil, I can really say that this is the best Churrascaria in Houston area. The picanha is excellent and the service is fantastic! To be at the same level as the churrascarias in Brazil, they would need to add chicken heart and also to replace the mashed potatoes for French Fries! Another great advantage is that it opens...

My friend and I decided to try it on the recommendations of a Brazilian colleague. The food was wonderful! The service was attentive but not intrusive. A bit pricey for two women who couldn't possibly eat all that they offered. But definitely a good experience.

Went for my anniversary with family and really enjoyed this restaurant . Salad bar is wonderful, variety and quality of meat served is fabulous . They want to make sure that you are happy , so they keep bringing meat all the time. Service is exceptional . In my opinion Chama Gaucha is the best Brazilian Currascaria in Houston.

I think overall this place is very good because the flavor of the meats. The salad bar and overall loudness could be a littlel better experience.

I enjoyed the food, but my favorite part was the front of the house bar. Loved the guitar and quieter atmosphere. We were actually seated for dinner in the back of the restaurant and it was very hype/chaotic, and more than a tad noisy. The style of service lends to that, but it def isn't the place for a relaxing... More

This is my third time visiting Chama Gaucha and it did not disappoint me! I recommend for those on a budget to go during lunch time ($32.00) and be ready for a meat fest! The service is spotless! The waiters and floor managers are extremely attentive and are always ensuring you are hacing a great experience. During this visit my... More

I've beem in several steakhouses over the years and this is amongst the best I dinned in. Excellent, delicious, outstanding food and service! Be warned, it is a pretty expensive place...but worth every single penny! They have a large selection of meat to choose from and the service is impeccable. The waiters work in sink and you don't have to... More
