Brazilian Steakhouse
Known for outstanding service, the authentic “churrascaria” offers more than 10 flavorful cuts of meat including lamb, pork, chicken and beef on skewers carved tableside by gauchos. In addition to several cuts of meat, the continuous service includes a trip to the fresh and bountiful salad bar followed by a basket of traditional, mouthwatering pao de queijo (cheese bread). Fried bananas, buttery garlic mashed potatoes and fried polenta are served family style. An excellent, extensive wine list and authentic Brazilian cocktails complement the unlimited fare.

At our restaurant we are proud to bring you all the tradition behind the unique and original Brazilian way of serving meat. Food doesn’t stop arriving until you’ve had enough. Whether it’s a cocktail reception, class reunion, corporate picnic, magnificent wedding reception, or any occasion we can create a great event fueled by our passion for perfection.

    Super busy Friday night had an 8:15 reservation and we sat down within 10 minutes of arriving which was fine because they had a great patio area and we grabbed a drink. Staff was super friendly, waitress brought out French fries for my picky eater which I appreciated! Took a minute for the meat to come to the table but once they realized we had been overlooked they were right on top of it for the rest of the evening! Overall great experience and food was delicious!

    We arrived a few minutes late for my mother-in-law's 71'st birthday as our plane was delayed. The manager Eric and his team were fantastic; the restaurant was just about closed, but he brought us to our table and had all servers attend to our every need. The service was fantastic, we felt like they provided a private dining experience. Before retiring, my mother-in-law was an esteemed chef in Brazil and used to cook for the president of Brazil. She's very picky with Brazilian food. She won't eat at Fogo do Chao anymore after their corporate buyout as the food no longer tastes authentic. She couldn't stop talking about how her whole dinner at Chama Gaucha, even her birthday flan, tasted exactly the same as in Brazil. She even knew the region the owner grew up in based on how the food was prepared. Overall, it was a fantastic night. Manager Eric and his team treated us like family and give my Mother-in-law an authentic piece of Brazil. I highly recommend Chama Gaucha if you're looking to impress or for a special event.

    We come to Chama Gaucha for almost every birthday celebration and truly enjoy sharing the experience with friends. We booked for 8 guests at 7:30 pm. We always enjoy the food and typically the service. This time a was a little different and the service seemed a little off. At the beginning of our meal, our server seemed like he just wasn’t interested in taking care of us. As we ordered a round of caipirinha’s to start, he seemed put off by our requests for a few of them to be different flavors. We had mentioned a few times that we were celebrating a birthday and after asking for desserts he mentioned that one would be brought out to celebrate. The dessert came but there was no candle or happy birthday like there has been in previous years, or like there was for the table sitting directly by us. We sparked up a lighter for the birthday boy to blow out and the Manager quickly came over with a dessert and apologized. Which was much appreciated. At the end of the meal, a server who we had no contact with came over and started up conversation. This would normally be okay because we do understand that servers assist each other throughout the shift. However, it was about 9:30 and the conversation was just inappropriate. He asked a few women what there zodiac signs were and then went into detail about what he didn’t like about the sign we told him. The whole situation was off and seemed as if he was trying to push us out. Overall we will definitely be back but this was just an off putting experience. Food & Management is always great and typically service is as well. Not sure what happened but we are hoping that it we will have a better experience next time!

    Delicious food and drinks 10 out of 10. We celebrate a birthday and the service was outstanding! We were unsure what kind of shot to take for cheers and waiters brought out an entire bar to our table to pick out the variety of tequila and mescal. We picked out our waiters suggestions casamigos mescal! Definitely recommend this place!

    I told my husband I wanted to have dinner here for my birthday. I wanted it to be special, so I made a reservation. And it wasn't like i though it was just like any other regular dinner. We got there they didn't even greet us, I said I have a reservation they didn't pay attention to me they just went and sat us down. The lady keep waiting for our waitress she never came and she just left without saying anything. A table on back of you had just arrived and they were already taking there order for drinks. To finish off the night I had to mention to the waitress it was my bday. It seams like they just wanted to take everyone out as soonas possible. I been to defrent Brazilian stake houses and came to this one because I was told it was the best one in houston. Yes maybe in there food but not in management. Was really disappointed. We don't mind paying the price when you get the full experience.

    The service was outstanding and the food great. The only thing was the house wine, they gave us other wine, more expensive without asking but the rest was amazing, so we didn't even complain. Manager so attentive. Will definitely go back and recommend it. Great experience.

    Everything about this restaurant was excellent! They have a wonderfully fresh, wide assortment salad bar! The meats were delicious, and they kept coming. Service and waitstaff were outstanding!!! The ambiance was great, and the restaurant was so pristine. Also, the bathroom was so clean and fresh. That is one of my main concerns when I dine in a restaurant, because if the bathrooms are filthy, the kitchen must be too, but this one was very nice. My husband and I enjoyed our dining experience at Houston’s Chama Gaucha! It was our first time visiting.

    Outstanding selection of meats, from filet mignon and ribeyes to lamb and chicken and everything in between. Fantastic service from the gauchos to the wait staff, you never have to wait for anything very long. If you or your guest are not into the meats as much, they have a huge salad bar and excellent sides to choose from.

    The meats were ok but the salad bar was not as good as a Caso do Brasil or Fogo de Chao. Also, I had kids with me and the waiter asked them if they wanted a dessert as if it was complimentary and it wasn’t (which ok fair enough). I asked for happy hour drinks and they charged me full price and then they tried to charge me for my 3 year old who would not be charged in the base case but ate nothing. Overall I felt like I was getting ripped off and probably should have went to the other steakhouses I know better.
