We enjoyed going to this Brazilian steakhouse. The steak was really juicy and the salad bar was big. I wish that the garlic beef would of not been as fatty. Thanks for the good time!

My wife and I went the Estancia with three friends to celebrate one of their birthdays. Wonderful salad bar, all you can eat Brazilian meat cuts, service and atmosphere. We have been to the Estancia on many previous occasions, but this was the best visit yet, with meat and service spectacular. I'd highly recommend the restaurant for friends and family... More

After passing on visiting Estancia several times, my family and I decided to visit over the holidays. We ate at 4pm on a Saturday 12/17. Salad bar was very small and less than average choices, I was told you could eat just off of that...then we were served the meats. They were ok, but for a dinner price tag and... More

We arrived early for our reservation but were seated immediately. Staff were extremely friendly and answered all our questions. We started with the salad bar. Luckily we had eaten at another similar restaurant, so I knew to take very small portions of the salad bar...just enough to sample each and get my veggies in. They immediately came to the table...

Bottomless meat, salad bar, fried plantains, mashed potatoes, cheese bread... yum. The garlic tenderloin and the filet are my favorites. The dinner is more expensive but the service, ambiance and attention make a great package. We love the chiprina drinks and fresh food. Great date or special occasion place. I always see kids here but am not sure why people... More

Went there for dinner, just after reaching Austin after a long overseas flight. I was somewhat surprised that there was no menu and I was given the only possible option: salad buffet followed by the full churrascaria service (50$). The salad buffer, although looking quite large and offering an extensice choice, did not contain many items that I enjoyed (the... More

The buffet-style dining experience is highly recommendable. You can just have a slice or two of each of the 10+ grilled and well seasoned meats that they offer. Their wine selection is quite good so they are good compliments to the specialities of the house. Cheers!! 🍷🍷

We took our teen son for his birthday and he ate enough to feed an army. All of the meats were amazing as were the sides. Plan to spend a good bit of money as the price runs $49/person. The salad bar is also very good and provides a variety to choose from. Kids 6 and under eat free.

We had reservations, arrived a little early but were seated immediately. Salad bar has wonderful selections, not just the ordinary offerings. Servers came by constantly with the meat selections. All perfectly done. Deserts were delicious. Great choice for any occasion, or just a special night out.
