Excellent fare. Awesome salad bar followed by several choice cuts of meat. Great selection of drinks, and fine cocktails. This was a win.

plenty of food, but not great quality. The steak/beef in particular was very disappointing - tough, chewy and not very tasty. Chicken much better and OK salad bar.

Carnivores loved it. Plenty of options for the veterinarian in the group, too. Everyone was happily full - or overstuffed. For me personally, I ate more meat than I do in a normal week!

We went here for my birthday dinner. If you will be there in the month of your birthday sign up for the free club and your meal will be free. The food was great and the service was very good. I would definitely go back.

If you like Brazilian steakhouses this is one to go to. Have lots of variety of meat and a big salad bar as well. It is cheaper during lunch, but they don't offer all the meats either. You can also just get a salad bar...More

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.
