Tucanos is an experiential dining, family-friendly destination that combines the unique serving style of the traditional Brazilian grilling, referred to as "churrasco" (shoe-HAS-ko) - an exhibition-style meal surrounded by flames and colors, with the flair and festivity of the beaches of Rio de Janeiro. The cuisine features specially seasoned or marinated meats and vegetables (nearly 20 varieties), grilled and then served hot off the skewers at each table until the guest's appetite is fully gratified. Guests will find one-of-a-kind touches at the restaurant abound, including the color-coded, Tucanos Cue. Placing the Tucanos cue green side up lets the entree servers know that guests would like the parade of seasoned meats, vegetables and fresh pineapple brought to the table. Expertly trained meat servers then slice sizzling portions off skewers directly onto diners' plates. Tucanos also offers an abundant and award-winning Salad Festival, featuring more than 70 items.

A delicious, hot, experience.

Always and event, with a delicious salad bar and never ending perfectly done meat. However, the air conditioning seemed to be broken and it was quite hot in there. I had the meat sweats while hitting the salad bar! Hopefully it's been fixed, as this is one of my favorite places to go for a... read more

We stopped at Tucanos while at the Gateway waiting for a concert to start nearby. We had hoped for a dining experience similar to another restaurant chain in the area with the same kind of food. Sadly, the food was not nearly worth the price per person. The grilled meats weren't the best quality- the filet tasted like top sirloin,... More

Visited on a Monday night with the family. First off our waiter Steven B. was excellent- great professionalism and personality. Had a big smile all night and very attentive to detail - kept drinks full and made show we were being taken care of. The meat server, Parker, was on his "A" game - definitely had a "can do" attitude.... More

This was a fantastic dining experience! Our family of 4 all agreed this was one of the best meals we had ever had. We heard about the Brazilian style restaurants but had never tried one - we were extremely pleased. We arrived at 2:30, just in time to get the lunch menu price. The food was excellent and they just... More

OMG! What a place that is very electrifying with tables of family and friends enjoying good food and nice conversations. All set around a large salad bar including several pasta salads, potato salads and seafood salads...all you can eat.

When you're in a carnivorous frenzy and only succulent grilled meats will abate your ravenous mood, this is your hunting ground. The servers are your intrepid guides, graciously providing lighthearted recommendations on the wide variety of game and fowl. And the desserts? Mango butter cake with a raspberry could and a papaya sorbet. Annie, get your gun girl. . .things... More
