This is not my first visit to a Brazilian Churrascaria, but it was my first visit to Tucanos. And it will probably be my last. Previous visits to similar restaurants in other cities provided a relaxed, upscale yet casual environment where the variety of grilled meats and expansive salad bar could be savored along with quiet conversation. Not so in... More

We go here on occasion and are never disappointed. The food is really good especially the grilled pineapple which is always a favorite around our table. They also have a large salad bar for those that want a little bit of greens with all the meat that comes around to the tables. The place is a bit pricey, but always... More

Before you go, know that you're going to spend about $30 per person when you include drinks and dessert (if you have room for it). Because the featured Churrasco is all you can eat, you'll have to determine if you can eat enough to make it worth it. You'll start off with the "salad bar" which includes everything from authentic... More

After two years in Brazil I fell in love with the Brazilian Rodizio. To date, the best Brazilian restaurant I know of, with the most authentic Brazilian food, is the Tucanos Brazilian Grill. If you are a meat lover this is the place for you. I've eaten here well over 10 times. That may not seem like a lot, but... More

We went to redeem a birthday voucher. We go to Tucanos at least twice a year. It's a good place for a special celebration. The staff is always accommodating and professional. Our last trip our server had nicknames for the meat and he made me laugh out loud. "Would you care for some cluck cluck wrapped in oink oink?" or... More

I celebrated my birthday here and I was so disappointed ! The meat was very poor quality. We had a party of 6 and none of us was able to chew the meat selections. No taste and poor quality is a deal breaker. Perhaps you need to cut down on the selections and offer better quality. Never less I would... More

The service is always good and the wait isn't usually too bad. The meats are amazing. You have to try the grilled pineapple and fried bananas as well. Overall high quality and satisfaction.

Tucanos used to be pretty darn good. But now the meat is overdone most of the time and seasoned SUPER strong. The salad bar has a nice selection, but they don't keep it cleaned up and cold. The hot side of the bars are generally clumpy and ugly....sadly. We so loved this place.....not so much anymore. Could very easily be... More
