“Great food, great service, a lot of fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

I've been to two other Brazilian steakhouses (both in Salt Lake), and this is by far the best. Food quality on the salad bar was awesome and the there were about 40 choices. My wife does not likes lot of meat and was very happy the salad bar was s well stocked. The meat starts coming and everything they brought was outstanding! The servers were very knowledgable and offered to accommodate my daughter's food allergies. The dining room was full, but no less than 4 people repeatedly checked on each member of our party (in an unobtrusive way) to make sure we had what we needed and were having a good time. The price was about $50.00 per person, but we were celebrating my daughter's birthday so I did not mind and felt like I was getting my monies worth. We have a Chama Gaucha in San Antonio and we will definitely try it out. Highly recommend this restaurant. Enjoy!

“Doesn't top Fogo de Chao”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

We decided to try something other than Fogo de Chao for husband's birthday, as he wanted Brazilian food, gaucho style. Seeing good reviews on Trip Advisor, we decided to try. Very courteous, very good service, it just didn't top our expectations. We expected more authenticity, better food, but were somewhat disappointed. The cheesebreads weren't better, just bulkier. The meats weren't better, just more grizzle and fat on them. The salad bar was similar (replica) of Fogo de Chao, so no complaints there. The service was good. The locale and the ambiance was very "barn like", not elegant or stylish as we hoped. It's clean and OK, but the price is the same as Fogo de Chao.

All in all, average, but still has a long way to go until it reaches the class of Fogo de Chao.

“Great service - Rest average”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

The place looks stunning from the outside...the staff is very motivated and there seems to be a manager or owner roaming around as well. Everybody has a very good and friendly attitude...so they must be doing something right. Here the mediocre part. I found the salad bar and meat average at best. I think there are competitors on Westheimer , who are much better. The atmosphere inside is kind of lame as well... just a long large room with high ceiling. This place seems to be more reasonable priced , however. Nut much...but they are. I gave it 4 stars for the friendliness...Great for large groups and business.

“dinner with a large group”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

wonderful service, very good selection on salad bar, the meats were all good and quality cuts, cocktails were made to perfection, can get a little busy here and a little noisy the large round tables are great for a large group so you all feel together. great food and great price for the meal. come very very hungry. I hope you find this helpful.

“Buenisimo!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

Loved the food ovbiously, the drinks where great and the service was outstanding, besides the waiters walking around with the meat; it seamed like we had 2 or 3 waiters just tending our table, so we wouldn't miss anything. The manager came to our table several times as well. Loved it! and the price was lower than the competitors, will defenetly go back !
