Churrasco's on Westheimer caters to the neighborhood central Houston crowd with a menu full of spicy South American offerings, including a great basic steak - the Churrasco, available in 8, 10, 12 and 16 oz. portions. On a recent visit we ordered the Chicken Tinga appetizer, which was probably the best thing we ate. It features shredded chipotle flavored chicken,... More

The churrasco steak was fantastic. They use chimichurri sauce to marinate the steak to make it extremely tender. They also provide chimmichurri sauce for the plantain chips, which are a nice break from the typical tortilla chips at other restaurants. The mac and cheese side was delicious, but the tamale dumplings were far less stellar. The brussels sprouts were in... More

Our customer wanted us to try Churrascos for lunch and they stated it was a regular for stop for them. The food was not that good. I had a pork on flatbread with beans dish. The pork was very small portion and the food was mushy, cold and unappealing. The fried banana was actually ok but overall my partners did... More

My son treated me to the Mother's Day brunch on Sunday. We couldn't get in until 2:30pm even with a reservation! When we were seated, we were at the back of the restaurant and the table was not ready yet. I had to go find our waiter for waters and mimosas, but at least it was a buffet, so we... More

Churrascos at River Oaks has changed the menu quite a bit since the last time we visited Houston and ate there. Now everything is à la carte and quickly totals up. The special for the night was $50. It was an 8 oz filet with crab on top. The only difference between that the the $27 filet was the crab... More

I often come to Churrascos as the food is excellent and it is just a little different from the other restaurants in Houston. The steak is very good as is the seafood. The mixed appetizers are just super with empanadas and crab claws. Good wine list and if you have any space left share a Tres Leches desert. Excellent and... More

In town for business. Stopped in. The place was empty. The waiter was very nice and recommended a few things. I got the ten ounce churrasco steak. It was good but not great. The whole experience was nice but it is not a top line steakhouse.
