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.

Good food, but over our budget

We went on Veterans Day, and my husband ate free. The food was really good, especially the grilled pineapple. We now make the pineapple ourselves at home. We did eat until we were stuffed. The meats we had were not dry, and were very tasty. My husband tried some different soups, and other... read 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?

We come here about 4-5 times a year. This visit was for my 6 year olds bday and it was her special request to eat there. The service is always really fast and salad bar is fresh. We prefer this Brazilian grill because they offer less pork options (we don't eat pork) compared to Rodizio.

We went to Tucanos for my birthday, and it is very similar to Rodizio grill and Braza grill, all the same. This is a good restaurant where you turn a colored block upside down depending on your desire for more meat, green bring it on, red stop! The meat was good for the most part but much of it was...

This was a waste of time and money seriously. We went here for a birthday dinner. The service was very slow and the meats were over cooked. The selections were also very limited. There won't be a encore dining experience.
