    Never disappointing. Definitely one of ou ut favorite brunch locations, we've been coming here regularly since we relocated to Houston. If you go, everything I've had from the traditional to the Chef's creations are top shelf. You will not be disappointed...

    I have always loved Churrascos. I was there the end of November. I understood when things changed and there were less items available. The price seemed to be adjusted for that. So I decided to bring 3 friends as a treat for them. I understand why there aren't as many servers as before. We all have to cut back now. However, the service was a little less than last month and nothing like it had been before the virus. The person serving the water was great and some of the others were very helpful. My problem was that I had called ahead of time and asked if the price was the same and the fellow said Oh yes! When I got he bill the senior price had gone up $8.00 and the adult prices had gone up $7.00 each. I understand that many places are raising their prices because of the hardships but, it made me angry that the person who answers the phone would say that prices were the same when they clearly were not. That was as extra $29.00 I had not counted on. I asked the waiter when he finally got there with the check and he said it was different because more food had been added. The only thing I saw that was added was the hot chocolate (which was wonderful). The person answering the phone should be very clear about price and, unless I wasn't very clear sighted, the waiter shouldn't be telling tales!. Not sure I'll be back. And by the way, why is it now the Mexican Grill? The manager has been there for years and is very nice and accommodating. Joanne Terry

    Jose was our waiter and as usual he made us feel welcome. He was attentive but not hovering. Thr food never disappoints, it's always fresh, flavorful and identifiable. And I wasn't sure what it exactly was, the server was knowledgeable and explained what it was. This is our favorite restaurant by far and hope the issues all businesses have been facing won't affect their success like it has so many other businesses.

    Churassco’s is one of our go-to celebration places. The food is really good. The service is exceptional. The ambience is perfect. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening as we have on every other occasion. We highly recommend that you try Churassco’s Mexican Grill. It’s a phenomenal dining experience.

    The food was delicious, but the service was poor. Our server avoided any conversation, even when leaving the check and returning it he did not say one word, and just smacked it in the table instead. Since it was the end of happy hour, and I had not finished my drink he refused to sell me another one and said “you can only have one at a time” and left- I completely understand and respect their policy, but he simply lacked friendliness the entire time.

    I had checked the menu for the restaurant before making the reservation. The menu for this Mexican Grill was not on the webiste. I would have chosen a differente Churrasco's if I would have known. The food was good. But my guest had limited choice as she is snesitive to spicy foods.

    Food and service were both good. Margaritas were yummy and strong! Ambiance was lacking a bit. Music sounded more like we were in a lounge...would’ve liked something a little more upbeat in the background.

    Formerly a Churrascos Steakhouse & Seafood restaurant that was rebranded and reopened as Churrascos Mexican Grill on September 15, 2020. This is the first review for Churrascos Mexican Grill. The tortilla chips and two sauces are very good. The frozen margarita and the mojito drinks from the bar were so good. The beef and chicken fajitas medium well with charro beans and grill onions along with typical condiments were excellent. For dessert, the Nieve de Coco is so good (Pineapple ice cream in a Carmel basket) and is highly recommended. The service was superb. We will be back

    I have been a patron of Churrascos for 25 or 30 years. I understand that the present situation has had an impact on everyone. I just don't understand why a returning guest would be treated in this manner. No plate of veggies. We ordered the Tres leche dessert and was surprised to see the extremely small portion. Our bill with tip was $110.00. From this point on, I will spend this amount in another restaurant!!

    I submitted my feedback on a disappointing anniversary dinner. Service was good but plate presentation and food preparation were not up to Churrasco's standards. We also ordered Absolut and Tonic cocktails that were weak. Food seemed to take longer than usual and there were only approximately 16 total guests dining in. I would not recommend your location to anyone until these issues are resolved...in fact, we live very close to your Memorial City location but decided to dine at Westchase which is our preference. Perhaps the COVID-19 pandemic has caused some problems in staffing and food presentation. Thank you...John Cantu (713) 817-7468

    Churrascos always has excellent food and a great atmosphere, and this visit was no different. We did have the best waiter (Dwight) we have ever had there; he was awesome! Too, the Wednesday night special on their excellent steaks was great, and made the prices super reasonable. I also loved their mango habanero margarita and will get it every time I go back.!

    I have been to Churrascos many times and always enjoy the food and service. It seams they were not able to handle Valentines though. Our reservations were an hour late. We went to the bar and stood there for 30 minutes without service. Then, to top it off, our waiter really sucked. Worst waiter ever at Churrascos. The guy literally told me he did not have time to serve me a cup of coffee with my dessert. I am going to give them another chance. But, I really expect more from them.

    The food was ok for prepackaged food. The Ceviche was a bit spongy. The chicken was nice quality with a.crispy coating. The cheese had a slight bit of flair at least. The Malbec was a nice choice.

    Went on Valentine’s Day which was a mistake. The regular menu is not available and when requested to order off the regular menu was told this is to make sure the kitchen can keep up. The issue is they have these 59 per person meals that require you to get an appetizer and dessert from a small selection of items

    Food was good but service was terrible. After we were seated, it took a long time before we were served. And after ordering our drinks and food, it took another long time before the drinks came and eventually the food. They had a special menu for valentine's day and did not staff accordingly.

    This was by far my worst experience at Churrascos, my wife and I came not only because it was Valentine’s Day but also because we were celebrating our wedding anniversary. I mentioned it to the restaurant several times and they said they’d make it “memorable” and not once did they congratulate us or even acknowledge what we were there for. On top of that the Valentine’s Day menu was $60 a person which normally I don’t mind paying but the food was awful the only highlight was the appetizers. I got the Cerdo Marinero and it all literally tasted like it was frozen and they reheated it. The pork rinds tasted like they bought it from Fiesta or La Michoacana and just too it out the bag and placed it on my plate. The crab meat also tasted like it was from a container not freshly made. If I’m dropping $60+ per person I expect way better food that what we got especially since I know pork, yuca, etc. Isn’t that expensive I’ve made this stuff at home for less than $10 so give me a break. Also my wife’s meal Pollo Jalapeña was dry chicken had no flavor and the gallo pinto tasted old. For a Valentine’s Day dinner I expect a way better meal than what was given to us and not once did they offer to comp anything. As a business if I tell you I’m not satisfied and you take my plate away and it basically wasn’t touched with no to-go box maybe you’d get the message but no. Lesson learned though I’ll never be back.
