One of the best dining experiences I have had in Houston! This place serves wonderful meats, salads and sides that make this restaurant a must when dining out. The staff come by your table often to serve you wonderful steaks, chicken, shrimp, lamb and other meats on a skewer. You decide if you want one or more of that item.... More

Excellent service, excellent food choices, excellent bar tenders to get your drink just right. If you are visiting San Antonio, this is a must go to restaurant.

I went with my Korean Clients to this place and I was not disappointed. The service, the ambience, the food and drink quality; everything was excellent. Actually, the best meat I have had so far in Houston.

This is one of the few Brazilian steakhouses that actually uses an open fire to cook their meats (most of them these days use electric ovens or grills). One of the trademarks of these places is their outstanding salad bar—and Chama Gaucha is no exception. But the really nice thing about Chama Gaucha is the management. There are two managers... More

The steaks were good and so was the shrimp that you don't get at Fogo. Salad Bar is a lot smaller than Fogo but meat was on par but felt like service was better here.

The hits just keep on coming. You will... More
