Excellent food

Located near my hotel, thought I'd try it during a biz trip. Walking in, it has 2 sides - left being dining area and right being bar area, although tables / benches set up to eat there as well. Started with their fantastic plantain chips and dips - outstanding. Could make a meal on that alone. For... read more

I have eaten at other locations in Houston. This was my son's birthday and were seated promptly. After 20 minutes I went to the bar to order drinks as the waiter never showed. Finally we had service and ordered. After dinner we ordered one dessert and a few drinks. The waiter bought 2 more desserts including a flaming dish for... More

Steaks are out of this world. Plantains keep flowing to enlighten your palette. Wine list is exceptional, always a good offering and reasonably priced. Staff are so welcoming. Atmosphere is warm, personal but vibrant, will continue to return again and again.

I have been visiting this restaurant for many, many years and have rarely been disappointed. The service is very good and food is consistantly good. Have encountered a few problems in the past ( with fruit flies) but they seem to have fixed this as I haven't seen any in a while. The prices are reasonable...but not cheap (especially the... More

The Churrascos has an upscale feel to it, yet the atmosphere is relaxed and the prices are not unreasonable. Service is very personable. The food was quite good, the three cebiches starter was outstanding. Open on a Sunday unlike many surrounding restaurants in the neighbourhood.

I had just flown into Houston and had about 30 minutes to grab something to eat before my business meetings started. So I popped into Churrascos and had the chicken tortilla soup and it was excellent. I especially liked the broth. Just a hint of spiciness. The chicken was all white meat with a few slices of avocado added. Service... More

Wow this place is the place for meat lovers. The descent atmosphere makes this restaurant very special. The wine menu is very good. The waiters are absolutely professional. The meat was outstanding. The manager explained to me that it was wet aged and the prime cutting technique makes it so tasty. This is the best steak house i know in... More

The 6 oz churrosco steak is a perfect size for dinner. Even through it is only shown on the lunch menu you can ask for it for dinner. With all the other food offered with the meal, it is enough. The steak is excellent Must try the Sangria. Excellent but very sweet

My co-worker and I ate here as it was very convenient to our Hotel. Its basically in the parking lot of the Hilton Garden Inn where were staying. To be fair we had travelled all day and maybe we were a bit tired. The wait staff was friendly and did a good job taking care of the two of us... More
