If you're visiting Houston, coming here is a MUST DO! The food is great, you won't find anything like it in this part of the country. Guaranteed. Their fried Bananas are just delicious. I totally recommend.

The concept is as usual a salad bar and waiters running around with different type of meats at different stage of cooking to match customers preferences. Service was good.

Ate with my husband the day before Thanksgiving. We enjoyed it and found everything seasoned well and cooked to perfection. I am watching my meat intake and asked for shrimp which took forever to show up. By that time, I was full on the salad bar. We are from Atlanta and the salad bar there has many more choices, but...

For the longest time, I have been looking for the next best churrascaria in Houston. There have been so many that have opened up in the last few years but most have been disappointing. This place is perfect for what it is. A dressy, modern place with good ambiance that serve delicious meats. There was even a wedding reception when... More

New location and first time at Chama Gaucha. Terrific location, completely remodeled location, great staff and of course the cuisine is to die for. Definitely an equal to Fogo do Chao, a little less expensive, totally recommend for anyone who enjoys a great fulfilling meal alone or with family or friends.
