Chama-Gaucha has a lot of hype and it kinda lives up to it... I found an upscale Brazilian Rodizio-type restaurant with generally good service and good food. The salad bar was smaller than usual for one of these restaurant but had very high end items like shrimp cocktail, quail eggs, and smoked salmon. The meats were the standard Brazilian staples...

My wife and I have been talking about visiting this restaurant for a couple of years. We have went to a similar Brazilian Steakhouse for many years called Foco De C. near this location. We had excellent service, waiter Omar exceeded our expectations, the food was great and our overall experience was We Will Return Soon!

Everywhere we visit in an area of the US or Mexico we end up eating at a Brazilian-style steakhouse. I have several favorites that are now at the top of our places to visit when reaching our travel destination. But my favorite has a location here in Houston, on Westheimer, that has become our special celebration go-to. Chama Gaucha. The... More

Celebrated 3 birthdays with 7 people. Had a great time with great food. Still full a month later. Food was delivered to the table frequently with very little waiting. Staff was wonderful.

I am very impressed with Chama Gaucha from the first time I was there several years ago. The services and food is incredible. This one is definitely a "Favorite" If you have not been here, I highly recommend that you try it out.

Good service, but the meat selection was of lower grade than I expected. While other aspects of the evening was above par, I was very disppointed by the grade of the meats being serviced, and they were too salty.

While the salad bar is not quite as extensive as Fogo, or even as much as it was a year or so ago (they seem to have changed it a little) the meats - which, let's face it, is what everyone goes there for - are still great and every bit as good as Fogo or the others in town... More

I have gone to many of the Brazilian meat places. This by far was the best. The meat was great and the service was phenomenal. Can't say enough good things about it

This is our favorite Brazilian Steakhouse and we find any excuse to go... The salad bar has so many options and is always fresh. Their wine list is excellent along with everything else
