The restaurant is a rodizio type of restaurant with an all you can eat salad bar. Rodizio system works in the way that as long as you have a chip on the green side, the guys with swords with grilled chicken, beef, pork and pineapple will come to your table. If you want to take a breath, you should flip... More

I've been to Tucano's several times, both on my own credit card and as a guest. I really like it; their salad bar is good enough that you can be tempted to fill up on it and thus miss out on a lot of the other items on their menu. Personally, I find their fish and broiled pineapple outstanding; but... More

On the other hand, Lucas, a Manager doing excellent job in customer service. He has outstanding customer service and always pay attention to customer and workers.

For my birthday the last 5 years I've had to miss my free Tucanos birthday meal. This year I flew in and was not disappointed. We had a party with ages ranging from less than 2 yrs to after retirement. The pickiest of eaters to the hard core carnivores. D Day was easily the best server we've had, so attentive... More

I've been to the other Brazilian style restaurant in Salt Lake. The two have similar menus. However Tucanos is much more casual and a cheaper price. Quality seems just a step below their competitor, but can't be beat for the price. Staff was very friendly and attentive to needs. This is the type of place that keeps bringing you meat... More

In the mood for meat and plenty of it, we hit Tucanos at about 9:30 on a Saturday night during a rare visit to SLC. The place was packed with conference goers and, we learned, even more raucous and crowded than on a regular Saturday. I wasn't expecting much... We were told a 15-minute wait; and were called in five...and... More

My husband and I travel to Salt Lake City, Utah once a year for work. We enjoy splurging at nice restaurants while we are there. Yesterday, around 5pm we went in to eat at Tucanos. After we were seated in the far backroom, we got up to get our salad plates. The top salad plate was dirty. I went to... More

I knew, but I didn't really know. If I could give this place 6 stars I would. The premise is simple,sit down, order a drink, visit the salad bar(which is more like an amazing random food bar with salad, soup, pasta, sushi rolls, shrimp on ice, these amazing little cheese dough bits, fried bananas etc) and get served a whole...

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.
