I actually got asked by four different meat carriers what... More

I never get tired of this place, everytime I go to San Antonio I try to go. Food is amazing from the salad bar to the excelent meat quality specially Picanha. But the best I think is the service, real Brazilian people with an excellent attitude of service. Congratulations to this place one of my favorites.

I always have a great time with friends and family at Chama Gaucha! Great salad bar, yummy side dishes (the bread.... OMG), and I can't forget about the meat! I have to be rolled out of there every time. It's pretty expensive so, I only go for special occasions, but its a great place to chow down.
