So I read the mixed reviews but most places do have them so I shrugged them off. Don't listen to the people complaining. I travel all over the country every week and look for places to enjoy. This was one of them. So I went last night which was Valentine's Day. Stupid me it was a 2 hour wait but... More

Very loud. Good salad bar but you must love meat to make it worth the money. Men, and only men, came to the table with big skewers of meat. Cut lpieces off at your table. Would have been more appetizing if the restaurant was cleaner. Can't recommend.

The food here is wonderful and unique! New Mexico doesn't have many different places but this place welcomes you and continues to offer great service.

Nothing Brazilian about this concept at all. It a salat buffet combined with a reverse carving station - where the waiters are running around (yes... running) with large skewers of meat that are carved at the table. That doesn't really work well if you want to have a relaxed dinner. Each table has wooden stick. When it stands waiters will... More

Very cool place where you can eat as much as you want for a good price. It is located in a bad area of Albuquerque so be careful when walking to this place after parking. I give this place 3 stars as it was good but not great. All the food was very bland and without flavor. There lemonade is... More

Recently held our annual dinner here for several of my co-workers and their families. Everyone had a great time, plenty to eat with so many choices. No complaints here. Customer service is outstanding and so is the food, all the way from the buffet bar to the meats and other items being brought to your table on a skewer.

It is a Brazilian steakhouse where they have multiple cuts, styles, and flavors of different types of meats that you can eat from till you are satisfied. They also have a salad bar (with tons of things beside salad). It is a little spendy but you can eat way more than you spent and it is delicious.

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.
