Outstanding food and service.

Best food and service available but relatively expensive; but not outrageous. The venue is attractive and clean. You will have the benefit of several on the wait staff over seen by a first rate supervisor. Try the milk based lemon aid. It's great

The best meat place in San Antonio!! The service and the food are incredibly. If you are planning to go to Chama Gaucha you have to have a big stomach that day! Very recommended!

The place looks really nice. The sides and salad buffet offers a variety of fresh and good food. I WS disappointed by the meat: very salty and average taste! Also the wine list is very pricey! On the bright side, the service is great. I don't think I would visit this place again. You can find way better steakhouses and... More

Went here for a company Christmas dinner. Had about 45/50 people and everything was great. They were on top of everything and the food was amazing. It's a little intimidating when you flip over the card and 6 people show up with all kinds of food. It was really great and would highly recommend it.

My wife and I had a yearning for a relaxing dinner with the gauchos and our visit to CG was a delicious adventure. While all the meat offerings were splendid, the picana cuts got the "green up" coaster every time. A medium rare for my wife and a rare cut for me were right on target; tender, flavorful, and went...

Had a huge family gathering. Twenty one patrons plus a couple of toddlers. Place looks great and moves through large groups well. Food fantastic. Salad bar with quality choices and excellent variety of cheeses, veggies and meats. Valet parking is free.

This wasn't a horrible experience but I was disappointed because they changed their chimichurri sauce and their lamb was over cooked. Two of those were my favorite and is why I was excited to go back.

We have visited Chama several times, however we usually do not bring our kiddos or go during lunch. This time we did both. The service was outstanding and everyone was attentive, the meat was hot, well, seasoned / cooked, and came out frequently. Drinks were never more than 1/4 empty and table was cleaned often. The salad bar was well... More

First time in the restaurant and got blown away. The food, the atmosphere, the service. For starters, you must do a reservation for dinner. Is packed. Also, is quite expensive Minimum 40 dlls per person. The salad bar quite exquisite, well presented. try not to eat much salad, because the main course of course is meat... Chicken, pork, beef. all...

Love this place! We were here for my daughter's birthday again. The servers are always at your disposal and are always coming around with plenty of meat. Great flavor and perfectly cooked. The salad bar is killer...it has everything your heart and stomach desires. Love the atmosphere but it is not quiet. We love this place. Try all the variety... More
