I moved here from Dallas loving a Churrascaria up there called "Texas de Brazil". When I moved here I was discouraged that there would not be anything close. I've gone here multiple times now and have LOVED every time.

Atmosphere: Perfect. When you get there you'll realize its set up like an old house. Very intimate. Very private. Quiet. Romantic. I could go on and on with compliments. This is what sold me at first.

Food: Wonderful. The meats are always delicious and the selection is superb. They bring it to you and are very attentive to your wants/needs.

Service: Outstanding. Very welcoming and classy.

This is now my favorite restaurant and although it may be pricey it is still way cheaper than other Churrascaria's (Fogo...etc) and yet has better service.

5 stars. The very best.

I'm sorry, but FOGO DE CHAO is so far from a real Brazilian Steakhouse...there is no soul. IT IS A CHAIN!!! Nelore is a smaller restaurant that is owned by 3 Brazilians that were born in Rio de Janeiro and SP and moved here to create the Brazilian style meat that Houstonians love. The salad bar is always fresh and you can be sure that you will not be rushed out of the restaurant. When it comes to comparing the restaurants --- there is no question which is more genuine....and half the price!

The Brazilian experience was a lot of fun. This Brazilian restaurant is a smaller than others I've been to so it's more intimate and not as loud. The dining area is surrounded by windows that look out on the beautiful old oak trees on Montrose. We had a wonderful time.

Love this place. Very friendly people. Cozy place. Good price. Awesome food. Love to go for lunch on Fridays. The caipirinhas are great. And they have chicken hearts!

We went to this restaurant on a 2 for 1 voucher. The service was good but we felt rushed. There is no rhyme or reason as to how the servers proceed through the restaurant with the various selections. They have a very nice salad bar and side dishes. The atmosphere is great, but not a restaurant for young children.
