Went out for my birthday meal and had a great time. We had reservations set ahead of time and when we got there we were lead straight to a table. The service was great, we had one server that stood out to us and was very out going. His name was Jai, and was literally speed walking back and forth... More

TUCANOS is a very different dining experience. They have a great salad bar with delicious salads. But for your meat entrees, the waiters come around with sewers of various kinds of meat... Beef, chicken, pork and turkey and you can pick any kind you want... And as much as you want, cooked any way you like it. You have tongs... More

Whenever we have a family reunion in Provo, we eat at Tucano's! Our son served a mission in Brazil and he loves their food! Make sure you go hungry! There are so many choices, it is amazing! Not too many for vegetarians, though. The grilled meats are very good as well as the grilled pineapple. We love their cheese bread... More

Had dinner on our way out to see the meteor shower, and found Tucanos to be its own show of meat arriving at the table hot and ready to enjoy. The "salad festival" was delicious and provided a balanced backdrop to the meat, which arrived at regular intervals from knife-wielding wait staff. The highlight was Emily, our own shooting star,...

I recently visited Tucanos on a business trip to Utah. This was my 4th visit and it is certainly the place to go if you love grilled meat. It also has an extensive salad buffet if you like that sort of thing, but I now tend to give it a miss to allow more room for the grilled meat, and... More
