Gag. Some kind of attitude there too. Not going back. An over priced pretend Brazilian restaurant. Kinda reminds me of this though not an actual tucanos choice.

When Tucanos first opened it was amazing. It definitely felt like it was worth what you were paying, but as time has gone on the quality has just gotten worse. If you're going to a brazilian style bbq, then Rodizio is way better. I have not been impressed with Tucanos the passed few times we've visited.

This was our second trip to this restaurant. We got there at 11am when they opened and we were still there at 12:30! Seemed like we were seated in no-mans land. Our waiter would whisk meat right by us to go to tables further into the room and then come back by us with an empty skewer promising to come... More

This place is great. Even if you don't like meat, there is a very good salad bar. It is not quite authentic Brazilian Churrasco but it is pretty close. I have never left without being completely satisfied. It is a little pricey so I only go on special occasions but I Jump at the chance whenever it comes.

The restaurant is in a beautiful location, at the foot of the mountains with a bunch of other restaurants and shops all around. Decor is very nice and warm and the staff are friendly, attentive and professional. There was a huge variety of meats, carved table side, including many steaks, filets, chicken, etc. The carved meats were excellent but the... More

Always a good experience eating here. The service and food are excellent. For our budget, it's a bit pricey, but it's a fun celebration for a special occasion. Don't miss the birthday BOGO! You have to sign up online to get it, but it's a great deal. And you have the entire month of your birthday to use it. But... More

We visited Provo, Utah to attend graduation at BYU. The place was full after graduation, but we felt that our waiter and servers focused on our group. The food here has always been great -- and even on a very busy day, the food continued to be awesome. The meat was very tasty and the salad bar was similarly wonderful.

This restaurant and all restaurants like this are an "American Dream!" You get to eat all you want and not move your fat butt from your chair. I am a big fan of the pineapple, but other than that, the food is pretty mediocre. I am not sure why people have this rated so high other than my point mentioned... More

We were in town for BYU graduation and had booked a reservation for 7:30 PM on a Thursday night. We arrived a few minutes early, and the place was packed, and complete chaos. We were seated close to our reservation time, and server arrived pretty quick, and took our drink order. The salad bar and hot food bar had lines... More

Very busy for lunch. Food was medium and salad bar about the same, compared with the higher end places. When I saw the total bill, I was surprised. The cheap price counteracts and makes this a great value.
