A large group of us came here for a dinner/meeting. The food was good and there was plenty of it. The staff was extremely friendly and we never had to wait long for someone to deliver more meat skewers. This was my first time at a Brazilian style grill and hopefully not the last.

The meat was amazing, but their salad looked like it had been left out for days. Our waitress sucked too. I would rather pay extra, and go to Texas de Brazil.

The emphasis at Tucanos is on the meats however they do have a wonderful salad selection including soups, sauces, pasta, pao de queijo, in addition to the salad bar. Unfortunately they do also have hearts of palm which are almost always harvested illegally and environmentally damaging. We had lunch and it was relaxing and very enjoyable. The prices are also...

We love coming to Tucanos. The staff are very friendly. They try very hard in a very busy environment. Tonight, the meat servers kept passing us by and we had to make a fuss! They worked hard to make it up!

The meat was good, but my salad tasted gritty like it hadn't been throroughly washed. Was a neat place to try, but not something I would make a regular stop.

I went to this restaurant with my husband and my son. We are both Brazilians and were craving for some Brazilian style meat. We have been to many Brazilian churrascaria around the US, Canada and even in Europe, and were never disappointed. The Tucanos experience was terrible! The salad bar okay, but in my opinion it is unacceptable a restaurant... More

Description
Tucanos is an experiential dining, family-friendly destination that combines the unique serving style of the traditional Brazilian grilling, referred to as "churrasco" (shoe-HAS-ko) - an exhibition-style meal surrounded by flames and colors, with the flair and festivity of the beaches of Rio de Janeiro. The cuisine features specially seasoned or marinated meats and vegetables (nearly 20 varieties), grilled and then served hot off the skewers at each table until the guest's appetite is fully gratified.

Guests will find one-of-a-kind touches at the restaurant abound, including the color-coded, Tucanos Cue. Placing the Tucanos cue green side up lets the entree servers know that guests would like the parade of seasoned meats, vegetables and fresh pineapple brought to the table. Expertly trained meat servers then slice sizzling portions off skewers directly onto diners' plates. Tucanos also offers an abundant and award-winning Salad Festival, featuring more than 70 items.
