This restaurant was recommended to us several times during our stay. We went on a Thursday night and had made reservations for 5:30 pm which was a good idea. Standing room only when we left at 6:30 pm. The salad bar was fantastic, and the variety of meats that were brought around to each table were fabulous along with the... More

Tucoano's is a wonderful dining experience where they bring out different meat dishes to each table and slice off samples for you to taste. They will come around as often as you like and the meats are varied and very tastily prepared. There is the enhanced salad bar for those who might want something to eat beside protein, include different... More

I love the food here. Lots of meat, and it is well cooked. Also the grilled pineapple is delicious. It does cost a little more, but they have a birthday club you can sign up for to get a BOGO free coupon on your birthday.

Without a doubt, Tucanos manages to capture the essence of the Brazilian churosco experience with active waiters bringing non-stop meat and other roasted delicacies from the grill...and the salad bar is without comparison outside of Rio or Curatibo. The only criticism is the noise level. Like too many restaurants they think noise is equal to energy and energy is excitement... More

This was not the very best Brazilian restaurant we have ever eaten at, but it was still excellent. The service was outstanding, the presentation of the food was very good and the overall quality was more than satisfactory. They did not have as many choices of meat as I have seen at some Brazilian restaurants and the quality of the... More

I took my daughter and her roommate to dinner at Tucanos this past weekend. It was my birthday and my daughter let the waiter know and they successfully embarrassed me:) It was a great time and meal. We ate too much. I think they should have a free wheelbarrow service to roll us out to our vehicles when we eat... More

I have been to Tucano's numerous times and have never had a bad experience. Probably a good idea to make a reservation if you are dining on the weekend. I absolutely love the churrasco style of dining. Salad bar is good too.

We took our extended family here for dinner. Our original reservation was for 15 because someone couldn't count, but they easily adapted for us to have 20. The food is fantastic, and they keep the meat flowing until you ask them to stop. The salad bar has plenty of choices and dessert is delicious too.

was one of my favorite places. Don't see myself going back...salesman/waiter, never left for more then 5 minutes before returning for another very pushy sales pitch. It never stopped, from one thing to another. It was actually worse then a time share pitch.No time to enjoy our company. The really disappointing part was the stingy servings. Every time we had...

So, we've been to another (more expensive) churrasco before, so we are a bit biased as far as food quality goes. Favorites: brisket, picanha top sirloin, beef tenderloin, garlic beef. The poultry options were good, but not as good as the beef. We found many of the cuts to be more cooked than we prefer (rare-med rare) so we asked... More
