I'll say first, it's best to call ahead and reserve a spot. We waited for an hour or so. That was our fault though. The salad bar is okay, there are some really good things and some so-so, but the meat is all awesome, so delicious!

I really like going to Tucano's the atmosphere is great the service is always great the only reason I didn't give them 5 stars is the food. Most of the time I go there the food is great as well but a couple of times last year the meats were a bit dry and when you are paying that much... More

I don't usually like buffets unless it is Brazilian! I love how they bring around the meat for you and slice of a couple slices. I now have my 2 favorite kinds of meat (picanha and fraldinha) and I just stick to those, oh and the grilled pineapple. I also just get rice, feijoada (beans), plenty of vinagrette and I... More

I was going to try the Brazilian BBQ place where I live that costs $50 a person. A friend of mine recommended driving the 800 miles to go to Provo. Since we happened to be passing by, we decided to make the effort to stop by. I thought it was very memorable and was $120 for the 4 of us... More

This is a Brazilian-style churrasceria in an upscale shopping center on the north side of Provo. The decor was attractive. The buffet tables were full and varied. The meat selections were served at the table quickly and efficiently and were tasty. The service was friendly -- almost annoyingly so, but it seems wrong to complain about too nice. The desserts,...

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
