Great for birthdays any time during your Bday month . Six went and three had November Bdays and ate free. My faves are the roasted pineapple, spicey carmelized chicken, and tri tip steak. Yum. Cheese cake was pretty awesome too!

Went here for lunch with my local account team. They had been bugging me to bring them here. I was not disappointed. Best part is 2 of our meals were free for Veterans Day. Great food. Bring your appetite. The salad bar area was amazing. But the star was the skewer after skewer, after skewer of meat. They have anything... More

Talk about getting your money's worth, and the variety of a lifetime. Don't feel up too much on the salad/veggie/soup/pasta buffet, because the variety of meat you will be offered on skewers from knife welding waiters wins the prize. Also, be sure and order Tucanos lime-aide. Sign up for the birthday club and get your birthday meal free, when you... More

First time at this restaurant and a new experience in dining. No reason here not to find something you like. Tried many meats and all were premium in flavor and in preparation. The only exception is that it is hard to carry on a conversation at your table because of the noise. It's a very busy place and you'll have... More

The salad bar is wonderful with so many items. Usually my dining companions ignore the salad bar because of the amazingly delicious broiled meats, veggies and pineapple they bring around to offer. You HAVE to try the grilled brown sugar glazed pineapple! Also, children 6 and under eat free with a paying adult. Yup the fruit flavored lemonades... you will... More

Living in McCall, any visit to Boise is a trip in itself. This trip down had a long list of errands to address and a nice birthday dinner for the girlfriend was the key focus once we finished our various errands. For a Saturday evening, a wait was expected and it was made pleasant by the bar available while we... More

Description
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.
