I came here for HRW and it was the best HRW deal that I have been to! The empanadas were delicious, the steak was great, and the shortbread and tres leches cake were fabulous! The waiters were really attentive and so nice, it was such a nice experience. I highly recommend coming here.

We went for restaurant week and everything is great. The food flavorful and excellently prepared as you have come to expect. Cesar salad appetizer- great! Shrimp with garlic was good and the steak seasoned to perfection with Brazilian spices. Great place for a starter date, will be sure to impress

Its a bit ambitious to call this restaurant a gem, but it truly is. It does indeed share a car park with a supermarket and a few other restaurants. So at first glance I wasn't that impressed. Once inside, the hostess did greet us politely, but asked us whether we had reservations. Being a naive tourist, my first response was,... More

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
