This has everything to eat, meat wise you can imagine. Chicken, beef, lamb, you name it, the salmon appetizer was phenomenal. The service was great and did I mention the salad bar? Don't fill up there, the best is yet to come.

The food was fresh, service was wonderful, and the noise level was relatively low. The only negatives were that the ladies rest room was dirty. I've never experienced this before at this Tucanos, so I'm willing to think that is was a blip. But it...More

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.
