Not bad for vegetarians!

We took some out of towners here when I was on a work trip in March. The restaurant is pretty dark inside, but really quite elegant, and comfortable.

The good: All you can eat fresh cooked meat. Most of it cooked well. The garlic sirloin was the best. The side dishes were good. Good Creme Brule too. The Bad: Horrible, I mean HORRIBLE ambience. Despite extremely attentive service, it felt like a large Vegas buffet, with a MILLION tables, sitting side by side, no variation, alcoves, nothing, and... More

I trusted my fellow tripadvisor reviewers - went here with my wife, boss and clients. This place was awesome! No long wait time for service like many of the other Brazilian Steakhouses. Service was great, salad bar was great and the meats were all cooked perfectly, tasty and tender. Be sure to try the maple bacon from the salad bar... More

Pleasant atmosphere, delicious bbq meat selections, staff are friendly and fast service, food is great. Can't go past this if you are a meat lover. Salads are very fresh. Recommended for family or friends. Try it you will love it.

Service was Amazing. .. as was the salad bar. But the meat was terribly salty and although they proudly boost of 14 different meats. But seemed stingy with the finer cuts.

I have dined here three times and have never been disappointed. The wait staff and servers are hiding to meet your needs. Excellent salad bar. I usually get some cheese and single vegetables and eat it with the different meats being served. Most people state there is a little difference between Brazilian steakhouses in San Antonio, but the complimentary valet... More

We went during our family vacation with our 5 month old. They were great and gave us a table out of the way and had sling available for carrier. As soon as we sat down waiter greeted us. Waiters constantly checking in on us and would ask us for any requests in type of meat. Compared to other churrasquerias I've... More

We were conflicted as to which Brazilian steakhouse to eat at, seeing as there were several in the area. So we decided to try Chama Gaucha. We were so happy that we did. We have experienced several other Brazilian steakhouses in other locations, however, this one made a very lasting impression on us. To begin, the fresh salad bar was... More

Our party of 9 had a great time here during our San Antonio vacation. It's pricey - $42 for adults and includes no drinks. The salad bar is disappointing as it includes no fruit and our daughter is not much of a meat eater. I thought our waiter was being kind when he brought her a bowl of fruit -... More
