Tucanos is a great value when it comes to Brazilian Steakhouses. The meat is good and comes at a fast pace, the service is fast, and the price is moderate. You can get better quality but it will often cost double. If you are not familiar with rodizios, what happens is they bring a variety of meats to you and... More

We were vacationing and my wife took me here for lunch on my birthday and it was only $15.95 per person. We learned you get what you pay for. If you're used to Fogo de Chao or Texas de Brazil, you're going to be disappointed. One of the staff told us they were trying to be the family style brazilian... More

I have been to tucanos before in Boise and it was my all time favorite. This one is even better. The skewers came by at a quick paste, the salad bar was full and fresh, service was fantastic and we are members of the birthday club so my husband got his meal for free. Also love that we don't have... More

If you have been in a good brazilian churrascaria, this is not a good place to go. Salad bar is poor and of a very low quality & Meat is overall over cooked. But the worst part is the service: you wait too long between the different types of meat and the waiters generally come back with the same type... More

Standard Brazilian steakhouse faire with a very decent price (<$25 per person). Some of the steaks were lower quality (or so it seemed) and it is moderatley difficult to get medium rare but everyone was friendly and there is enough food to keep you going until you are ready to pop.

I've been to several Brazilian churrascarias. Some are pretentious and serve mediocre food, not here! The food here was good and diverse. The meats had good flavor and there was even enough food for my vegetarian friend who came with me. I'd recommend this place.

The salad bar and the drink selection is good ( really enjoyed my strawberry lemonade). The food however was average at best. I felt that everything was over cooked. I also felt the selections were lacking. Although I did really like the pineapple. The best part of this place was the price. Very reasonable for a steakhouse. I think you... More

Went to Tucanos today for the very first time. Our Server Jeanette was Awesome.. besides being gorgeous, she was very friendly and took time to explain everything to our party which included two young boys. The salad bar was very good, even the two boys ate a lot of food from the salad bar. Everything seemed fresh and hot stuff... More

Cool place! Huge salad and soup bar, and they keep bringing different meats, chicken, fish and grilled pineapple (YUM!) to your table. Reasonable prices, and there's no way you'll go away hungry. I'd go back in a heartbeat!

We used to love going to Tucanos when we lived in Provo. Now, many years later, back in Utah, we decided to try out the SLC location. I seemed to remember some high quality cuts back in the day, but the experience was still very good. Hard to complain about delicious all-you-can-eat meat. Not that you want to waste too... More
