Delicious entrees and sides

Had the Churrasco steak for lunch and it was great. I ordered a side, but keep in mind that when they bring entrees to the table, they also bring a plate of sides for the table, and you may not need more food than that. Also you will probably have had a lot of their famous plantain chips with... read more

Hadn't been in a few years... until now.. and the Churassco steak marinated in chimicurri sauce is sill the best on the planet (IMHO)! Add some baked plantains and yucca with rice and you are set! Craving it now just thinking about that sensation on my palate... and it's not even noon! Went last weekend for Brunch... and I can... More

Churrasco's is my favorite restaurant in Houston. I had a wonderful dinner with excellent service and amazing food. I left quite full and quite contented!

I am always concerned about going out for business lunches because I am celiac. But the chef came to our table and assured me there would be no cross-contamination on whatever I ordered from the menu. I had the best ceviche and the best entre ever...

Our meal was excellent. Our steak was tender and melt in your mouth good. Our server(ERIKA) was absolutely fantastic. She was knowledgeable and a real pleasure to have. Between the meal and the service I'd say this was a 10!!

We went there for Mother's Day brunch. There was so many dishes to try and they were all wonderful. I hate to gorge myself, but you can't help it here at the buffet. Nice treat for special occasion, but pricey. Although I looked at other fine dining brunch places and this was one of the lowest priced.

The food is absolutely delicious. The plantain chips are addictive ... so don't fill up on those. Highly recommend the Churrasco (one of the best steaks I've ever had) and the Tres Leches (no doubt, the best Tres Leches ... you won't want to get tres leches anywhere else). If you go for a birthday, they will make it a... More

The standard Churrasco steak is very tasty. Suggest the throwback version which is only 6 oz (all you really need). A variety of South American flavors are available. Plantain chips are a staple. The main courses don't come with much so you will likely want to order some sides. You will also typically get a chef's plate from the kitchen... More

I've always enjoyed Churrascos for lunch and dinner but, decided to try the brunch buffet this time. It wasn't all that. For the price, I expected more especially from some of the reviews on brunch. My favorite was the roasted pig. Lots of small items to choice from that made that buffet area larger than what it was. Didn't care... More

Churrasco's, Westheimer Rd location, has been a long time favorite for us when we have visited Houston in the past. However... This time it was a parade of wait staff hawking expensive wines and "special" dishes. It was like being on the beach in Mexico with the ever present vendors of trinkets buzzing around constantly. I mean to tell you... More
