Down to the business of grinding!

Loved the variety of the grilled meat. Tasty and certainly filling. Salad bar offered a variety too. Overall experience - great tasting meal and fun atmosphere. The desserts are awesome too. Came with an athletic team whose members were ravenous. Tucanos fit the bill!

This place is acceptable for some ala Brazilian food. But the meat is clearly not as intended. Teriyaki Beef, rubbed chicken and BBQ chicken are NOT Brazilian. The cold and warm bar could be better. I don't know why this place is so full...

This is a great place to eat... kind of on the pricey side so it's better for special occasions :) I would recommend making a reservation as we had to wait for a little bit at lunchtime in the middle of the week. Fun atmosphere and especially tasty meats and pineapple.

At here at the recommendation of a family friend, and were glad we did. Love all the meat choices and the servers make the atmosphere very fun. Try the limeade/lemonade, with strawberry or raspberry, so amazing! Go when you are REALLY hungry so you get your money's worth :)

Great food and service. Birthday meals are also great especially after you sign up on their website. I love their lemonade

It's absolutely delicious and you get such a greater variety of flavors. It's too expensive to go regularly a college budget, but sign up for the birthday club (more than 24 hours in advance), get your free meal, and split the price with a friend! If you go for lunch, you get the same amount of food, pay less... and... More

This was our first time at a Brazilian steakhouse so I have nothing to compare it to (although for those of you Disney travelers it reminded us of O'hana) but the food here was fantastic. Only my daughter and I took advantage of the salad bar. Loved the variety of foods on it. The meats were great and such a... More

One of the poorest performances from a server I have yet to experience. The atmosphere was incredibly loud, the variety of meat servers were idiotic college kids and the table was covered in grease! The salad bar was borderline inedible and the meat was sub par. If you're going to fork out the money for a Brazilian restaurant, do yourself... More

The food is great, regular Brazilian grill type fare, the restaurant was comfortable and warm and the service is wonderful. We also loved the location, within the Riverwoods shopping area.

I went to Tucanos when I was in the 3rd grade just after it had opened and instantly fell in love. I go back as often as I can. The food is phenomenal as well as the employees are so kind, making sure you always have what you need. I will continue going back and introducing it to friends and... More
