If you're familiar with a Brazilian Steakhouse, this restaurant offers you a more affordable alternative. Although the salad bar is half the size to similar restaurants in the area, the quality of the meat, which is the main reason you're there, is great! We were greeted with a basket of warm cheese bread and the classic fried plantains, smashed potatoes and polenta. The salad bar was small but with a good selection of vegetables. The service was great and we were served promptly with our requests of Picahna, bacon wrapped filet and leg of lamb among other cuts like top sirloin, bottom sirloin as well as chicken and lamb chops.
Definitely coming back. The place is nicely decorated and it has plenty of rooms for group dinners.

At first, I was a little leery of a place that walked around with meat on sticks, but it was quite an enjoyable evening. We started with a self serve salad bar. Our waiter brought our drinks, cheese bread, mashed potatoes, plantains, and another item I am not familiar with. We never had to ask for refresher dishes, they were very attentive. For the meat selection, you must turn over a green card if you are ready for your meat course, and turn the red card if you are not ready. They come around very quickly and offer your choice of cooked meat (well done to rare). It's a pricey meal but worth it if you're celebrating.

The Manager Warner Rocha was Amazing and accommodating to our request. We got married in the patio section on July 4th, then moved the guest into the restaurant where the Manager and staff were very professional, accommodating and most of all attentive. My guest loved the atmosphere and the food was amazing. The children loved the banana slices, sour dough cheese puffs and were very happy. I loved this restaurant!

This Brazilian steakhouse is fantastic. The prices are unbeatable and they have great service. The management and servers are excellent. The server is checking up on you regular bases to ensure everything is going well. Upon arriving you are greeted by the host and feel welcomed. You begin with the salad bar which is at your convenience. Once you are finished with your salad, you are then given a card in which you can decide whenever you are ready to eat, red signaling not ready and green signaling the Gauchos that you are ready. The Gauchos are excellent in paying attention to your card. Their meat tastes great and they have a variety of meats from lamb to pork. They also have fish dishes, specifically smoked salmon which is delicious. The price is great for what you eat, at around 30.00 for lunch for an all you can eat buffet, this deal is unbearable! I have been to numerous steakhouses around San Antonio and this is by far the best one for its unbeatable price, food quality, and service.
