La Cantera is a force to be reckoned with (regarding N. SA restaurants) but Chauma is one of my faves. Great for business meetings/parties or just a romantic night out. Great food and service. They've never let me down!

Who doesn’t love a buffet of steak?!! This place is so worth the cost! Come with an appetite because you will not want to stop eating. The cheese puffs and fried bananas are delicious!!!

They do have a couple of separate dining room and since you are looking at a Sunday, I’m sure you would not be dealing with large crowds. Nonetheless, I would call and make a reservation and ask. Also, there should be no... More

It is not inexpensive: $40+ for all you can eat plus wine at ~$10/glass ... but it is so worth it for a special celebration or a 19 year old male teen who can easily eat his way to $40 in meat!! smile!
