An interesting and unusual concept, would be fun with a group or at least a companion. Varied salad bar, very specific menu, but includes rotating servers with beef, chicken, ham, etc. Lots of food and enjoyable, but not outstanding.

Bright, sunny and scrumptious. I saved my appetite all day for the delights from this place. Your servers tell you the rules and food keeps coming until you give the signal to stop. Patrons control the serving pace. Stop and start as many times as you wish. Any waiter will gladly honor your every request. Oh, yum!!!!

Come to this place hungry! If you're not real hungry, just get the salad bar. It was a fun experience and the food was very good. If you order just the salad bar, you can go back as many times as you want. It you order that and the meat portion, the servers come regularly with various meats to slice... More

Our weekend SISTERS' STAYCATION culminated with a dinner at Tucanos. We were treated royally. We had a red cloth and black napkins, vases with red roses, service over-the-top, caring staff and more food than anyone can hold. Yes, we will return!

We had dinner at Tucanos because of our precious memory of eating at Tucanos in Las Vegas a few years ago, which was quiet elegance and a table server with all the meat choices on one wheeled table, large roasts on each standing spit. Low lights and nice soft music added to the ambiance- but that was then, in Las... More

Tucanos is a wonderful way to celebrate a special occasion. The food is amazing, they have gluten free options and there are so many options to choose from. You can have just the salad bar or the salad bar and meats they bring around. The grilled pineapple is to die for! My favorite item there.

Description
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.
