This place is fantastic and very similar to steak houses in Brasil. Even the grilled pineapple is the same as in Brasil. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Had a great time at this restaurant. The salad bar was wonderful with a great selections of foods. Choose the "meat" on the menu and they come out with individual skewers of different meats and give you a slice. So you taste a lot of different flavors. Really neat experience.

We went here just about a year ago. Service and food great. This time, not so lucky. No flan, no creme brulee. Out of way too many things that were printed in the menu, not specials. Not sure if i would give them a 3rd try after this visit.

If you're a meat lover, this is the restaurant for you. Constant flow of different types of meat arrive at your table until you turn the wooden block to red (stop.) Don't get thick pieces, instead ask for thinner slides so that you can enjoy the savory taste. Stick to medium rare for more succulent taste. Enjoy!!!

I love this place. The food is delicious and the meat servers are wonderful. They're very knowledgeable about the meats that they serve. And the Pineapple!!!!! Words cannot describe how great it is. I also like how they give you a free meal for your birthday each year. No other restaurant I know offers that.

it is a bit costly to eat here but I love it. When I consider the cost of other buffets now (not Chinese) this cost seems inline. If you don't like seasoning on your food this might not be the place for you. They season all their meats with Brazilian flair. The only down fall I found the last time... More

After having been to other Brazilian steakhouses (Myrtle Beach, Richmond etc), this one is a true disappointment. Have tried this one twice. The salad bar can be iffy and they are slow to refill hot dishes and breads on the buffet as they empty. The "good" meats come around less frequently than do the veggies on a stick. You have...

I do like the meat that is brought around but wish that it would show up more frequently. The buffet has a great variety and very fresh.

My company reserved Tucanos for a lunch meeting and enjoyed it. They organized one of their rooms so it would seat 25 and we had our own dedicated staff to take our orders. They have an unlimited salad bar which includes soup and gumbo. We were served a variety of meat choices throughout your dining experience. They present the choices... More

I have been to several other Brazilian grills. This one is comparable to the others but at about half the price. Too much food, but it was all so delicious. I'll be back.
