I do like the meat that is brought around but wish that it would show up more frequently. The buffet has a great variety and very fresh.

My company reserved Tucanos for a lunch meeting and enjoyed it. They organized one of their rooms so it would seat 25 and we had our own dedicated staff to take our orders. They have an unlimited salad bar which includes soup and gumbo. We...More

I have been to several other Brazilian grills. This one is comparable to the others but at about half the price. Too much food, but it was all so delicious. I'll be back.

This is well worth the money. The main thing you get (unless you specify otherwise) are random skewers of different meats, vegetables, and fruit. You have a marker on your table which you turn green up if you want more, and red up if you...More

I know everyone seems to love this place. I just didn't enjoy it. It's extremely expensive. The meat and fruit is cooked over each other, therefore cross contaminating meats on meats and meats on fruits. If you have any type of allergy or sensitivity you're...More

I have been to Tucanos several times and each time it has gotten worse. Salad bar is well stocked and maintained, but that is not why you go to Tucanos. On this last visit, the meat service was lacking. The variety of meats was not...More
