My husband and I wanted to go some place special for our anniversary and chose Chama Gaucha here in San Antonio. Our entire experience was perfect. The Market Bar (salad bar with much more) was amazing. All of the meats, and I think we tried them all, we're so tender and juicy that they melted in your mouth. The service... More

Much prefer this steakhouse to the other ones in San Antonio (and I've tried them all). Service was great, the restaurant was beautiful. Best bar of all of the steakhouses as well. Will definitely go back.

I've traveled around the world, and this restaurant right in San Antonio has to be my favorite place. The service is amazing, as anyone who has traveled Latin America understands. The servers are literally there to serve you, not entertain you, not ask questions or interrupt your meal. This allows for good conversation with your dining party and enjoyment of... More

My wife and I went to Chama Gaucha for my birthday. From the point of arrival until you walk out the door, the entire staff is "over the top" attentive. This place has customer focus and appreciation down to an art. This is certainly Chama's strong point. The wine list is above average and reasonably priced. The salad bar is... More

From the time you walk in you are enveloped with service that is unlike anything you have seen. EVERY employee has one mission, to make your experience one of a kind. Food aside for a second, I have never had a time that I went here and said that server did not do so well. There is no salad bar... More

My first visit to a "Chama Gaucha" restaurant was in Downers Grove, Illinois. It was an outstanding evening. So,...I hoped that a visit to the "Chama Gaucha" location here in San Antonio would also be a winner. I was not disappointed. Eight of us gathered at a large table and proceeded to tempt the God of the Meat Coma. Service,... More

The restaurant is very nice, has good service, and great meat and salad bar! Make sure to bring your appetite because you will be offered a variety of Brazilian steaks, chicken, etc.
