I have been to Brazilian style steakhouses in many parts of the world and this place is as good as Nairobi or Rio. What impressed me the most was its cleanliness and orderliness. Service was prompt and friendly. Beware of the salad bar! It's outstanding...More

Not bad. But no change for years. All the protein taste the same after a while. And the cost is high for little scrap portions they cut you. 25.00 a plate is pricy for the food they give you. But the environment is great. Service...More

Wife ate here one night while on a business trip. She really enjoyed the different kinds of meets that are freshly carved per serving. She also said that Tucanos has an awesome salad.

Tucanos is an experiential dining, family-friendly destination that combines the unique serving style of the traditional Brazilian grilling, referred to as "churrasco" (shoe-HAS-ko) - an exhibition-style meal surrounded by flames and colors, with the flair and festivity of the beaches of Rio de Janeiro. The cuisine features specially seasoned or marinated meats and vegetables (nearly 20 varieties), grilled and then served hot off the skewers at each table until the guest's appetite is fully gratified. Guests will find one-of-a-kind touches at the restaurant abound, including the color-coded, Tucanos Cue. Placing the Tucanos cue green side up lets the entree servers know that guests would like the parade of seasoned meats, vegetables and fresh pineapple brought to the table. Expertly trained meat servers then slice sizzling portions off skewers directly onto diners' plates. Tucanos also offers an abundant and award-winning Salad Festival, featuring more than 70 items.
