Enjoyed this Brazillian churrascaria many times with family and friends. Great food and value, especially for lunch. Come hungry!

The buffet is pretty good. A decent selection of meats (sometimes better than others) and the salad bar is pretty good. My favorites are the garlic sirlion and grilled pineapple. You won't leave hungry but your colon will definitely hate you for all the meat you'll eat.

First let me start with I really enjoy Tucanos. For my own enjoyment I would say it is a definite 4 rating. But I have to admit there are some flys in the ointment so to speak and if I could rate it 3.5 I would. First of all, this is not true Brazilian. Close, but definitely Americanized. I'm fine...

This place is not bad... It just is not a true Brazilian Barbecoa. The servers walk around serving Tempura fish, vegetables, pineapple and brisket. On skewers, except for the fish and brisket. And pulled pork. I enjoy pulled pork and beef brisket. Don't get me wrong. But they have no place in a Brazilian all you can eat meat house.... More

Our founder spent a number of years living in Brazil and works hard to be sure that we offer both. It's great to hear that the Salad Festival and Brazilian Lemonade were... More

I wasn't sure what to do for my Daughter's boyfriend for his birthday. He lived in Brazil for two years, so I offered to take him here. He was so happy to share the traditions from the Brazilian people as we ate. He made us try some things we haven't tried before. We have eaten here before, but it was... More

I really enjoy going to Tucanos Brazilian Grill. Over the years, we have gone here at least 25 times. I have visited it with my family, as a couple (with my wife), with friends, and with co-workers. The food is always hot and fresh. When going there, you have a waiter who takes your order and brings you drinks and... More

Personally, I think this place is a bit overrated. There is a salad bar and meat. I love that the items on the salad bar are marked gluten free, but there just isn't much that is. Although that could be a good thing. You get more of your money's worth (this place ain't cheap) if you eat less salad and... More

I heard great things about this place before going there. The bring out meat on kabobs for you to pick from. Lots of great BBQ stuff and a pretty good buffet as well. Just be prepared to eat a lot of meat!

What is not to love? Great staff, wonderful atmosphere, fresh amazing food. The price is high, but unlike some other trendy places, you get what you pay for! You couldn't do this at hone for the same price! Variety, Flavor, Memories.

We took our son for his birthday ( his choice). It was very enjoyable even though I was crowded, I was glad I made reservations. I love the choices and all the staff was very friendly and professional. It is pricey but worth it. Won't go often but for special occasions yes.
