We went here for lunch our last day of our trip, and it was a great finishing touch. I highly recommend the crab salad, spinach and strawberry salad, and lots of varieties of meat. The top sirloin was my favorite. I like my beef on...More

I have only been to Tucanos a couple of times. It is a nice place to eat dinner, but you want to make sure you bring your wallet. The food has always been great, and so is the atmosphere, but you really need to plan...More

The only reason this restaurant does not get five stars is on account of the noise. I guess I am just getting old, as I have become quite sensitive to noise. There are poor acoustics, and lots of bare wood surfaces for the noise to...More

Waited almost 45 mins to be seated even with a reservation. Once seated, wait help immediately brought the different skewers of food. Excellent food and drinks. Very pricey for someone who doesn't eat a lot. Good place to go for a special occasion.

Had the usual amazing assortment of things from the buffet, including the perennial favorites that I always craze for the authentic Brazilian flavor: arroz (rice), feijão (black beans), farofa, and abacaxi (grilled pineapple)! Despite not finding Guaraná at other places, Tucanos had it available! We...More

If you're looking for quality, go elsewhere. But if you're looking for something fun and all-you-can eat, this is a great place. Decently priced for what it is. Don't expect to be wowed by the taste/quality of what comes around on the spits.

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.
