This was real good food all you can eat Brazilian steak. The service was great. I will eat here the next time I return to Salt Lake!! the price was about half of the other Brazilian steak houses, which made it better.

Hubby and I enjoyed a lovely, Brazilian style dinner at Tucanos on New Years eve. The decor reflected the New Year's theme; party favors and hats on every table. The meal comes with an unlimited soup, salad and pasta bar, along with their Churrasco (meat) items. I filled up way to quickly, but loved every bite. My only complaint (and... More

We had dinner there last week. It took 20 minutes to get in but it was worth the wait. If you have not been to one of these restaurants before it is a bit unusual in that they bring the meats to your table and slice off what you want. It is one price ($19) for all you can eat.... More

The atmosphere is nice. The service is friendly, however the food is average at best. The salad bar has lots of options but the quality is on a level with mediocre buffets. The meats were chewy and not overly flavorful. I was not impressed. There are no exotic meat options and I am not sure how they can get such... More

Service is excellent. The salad bar is incredible with all the standard items, and items like marinated mushrooms, quail eggs, heart of palm, marinated tomatoes, etc and other selections like lobster bisque, brazillian cheese bread, and parmesan esparagus. More importantly, the waiters will continuously (if you allow them) bring over bacon wrapped filet mignon, brisket, garlic sirloin, pork sausage, pork... More

If you are a meat lover this is the place to go. The salad bar and side dish bar are extensive with every offering excellent. But the real reason to go is the meat which is brought by various waiters as long as you indicate you want more. Every kind of been, chicken, pork...even fish is available as long as... More

We made reservations ( which was a very good idea since they are always busy) and got a great table. The service was amazing. The food was amazing. I found on the bar a lobster bisque which I fell in love with. It was SO GOOD. A must try when coming here. They let us sit and visit a very... More

Back in July, my husband and I were hanging out at the Gateway Mall, killing some time before attending an event at the airport nearby. We happened to be there at lunchtime and decided to go to Tucanos. We were in for a very cool surprise. As stated by other posters, Tucanos features the Brazilian "churrasco" dining concept, where you... More

What's not to like about meat on a stick? This busy, bustling buffet features a full salad and sides bar, then servers run around with meat on skewers that they carve on demand. Place was a little noisy for my liking but the food was good. Great place to bring a big group of friends, to hang out and chow... More

We have been there for lunch and were pretty much happy. Maybe the meat itself was not a superb quality, but there were different things including variety of the salad bar and other stuff... Definitely not a bad choice for that price, I would go again.
