Great place to eat food was great and service was just as good. We took friends who did us a favor. Had been to Fogo de chai before and this is just as good.

Great Churascaria! I enjoyed my meal here. I have eaten at many Brazillian places like this. This one is really good. I wish they had the fried Yucca. However, all the other sides and the salad bar is great. I usually just eat meat when I go there. I would go again and recommend this place to friends.

Chama Gaucha was the first Brazillian steakhouse in San Antonio and we go there often, no downtown parking or traffic nightmares to deal with, always have a parking spot and service, food and atmosphere is top notch. Salad bar could have a little more variety, but then you don't go to Chama Gaucha to eat salad....

This was our third visit to this wonderful restaurant. From the moment we stepped inside, we were treated royally. While a smaller restaurant than most of the Brazilian Steakhouses, we also were not rushed by the next wave of reservations. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Stopped in for lunch. No wait, some of the best and most attentive service we have ever received. The food offerings were delicious. Well worth the trip and the price is right for the meal and the service.

Came down from Seattle for a business conference, and was invited to come out and try out this steakhouse. Lets just say it is not your ordinary eatery. Everyone from the management, wait staff and servers were eager and ready to serve. The food was delicious and not to mention the welcoming and friendly atmosphere as soon as you enter... More

Not much really makes this place stand out as far as taste. We both have a milk allergy and let the waiter know. After that we where constantly served sides with cheese, which gets annoying because having to send back food creates waste. We didn't get one of our sides back until the end of the meal when we were... More

By far, the best quality in food and excellent service. Servers will recognize you and give you the attention you expect. You don't wait long for the meats to arrive, and the salad buffet is highly recommended, probably the best in town.

Thank Eduardo A
