I was pretty disappointed in this restaurant. We made reservations and they were very busy all weekend. When we arrived, there were several large tables (10+) that seemed to be getting all the attention. We had to flag down someone with a skewer to get...More

This was my first time here and I loved it! We made reservations earlier in the day for dinner. Once we got there we waited about 15 minutes after our reservation time. But honestly it was worth the wait. We had the salad bar and...More

My husband and I were in town for a concert, which happened to be right around the corner from Tucanos. We've never been here so decided to come in. It's quite an experience to have your meat brought out on a large skewer and sliced...More

Tucanos is usually pretty good. I was looking forward to this visit. Tonight was different. I've scratched my head wondering if I should go ahead and write a bad review or give them a pass. My previous visit wasn't too good either which is why...More

For those who don't understand this is Brazilian type restaurant. They come to your table with skewers of meat. They cut it off to serve you. There is a little deal on your table that tells them keep coming or stop, or at least slow...More

Nice experience. Came in a weekday for lunch. Few people, cosy and clean place, really kind staff. I skipped the salad festival (despite being a salad lover, I only grabbed a small plate to share between 4 people), the assorted breads, fried bananas, etc. and...More

I wanted a big meal and wasn't disappointed here. The salad bar (where I restricted myself) must have had 100 items. From greens to reds, crunchy to tender, beans and cheese, artichokes and asparagus. Really good pina colada. If you manage to leave room, there...More

Go hungry because the food just keeps coming. Amazing salads and side dishes but be careful, you can fill up on just these. When the meat, chicken, sausage and fish start coming you will soon be filled up.

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.
