For meat lovers, this buffet is a good choice for a special occasion or splurge. The meats were grilled perfectly and the servers kept up with our table of 16. It was a business lunch and service was quick so we kept on schedule. Vegetarians and vegans won't get their money's worth out of the 60-item salad bar that includes... More

I use to love this restaurant for special occasions but not any more. Servers must be over worked. I never saw one of them smile. They were on auto pilot. There are a ton of choices but everything was overpowered by salt and just not very good. I told our server but he had no comment. We were attending an... More

This place, IMO, is a step down from other churascas I've been to. First of all, it was incredible noisy, and much more casual in terms of service and décor. The salad bar was nothing special. They did have a wide variety of meats and even fish and shrimp. But I missed the elegance of Estancia or Fogo de Chao.... More

Meats grilled to your desired perfection,a well-stocked salad bar with peel-and-eat shrimp and tasty soups, fruits, breads, and a wide variety of veggies. Great drinks (alcoholic or not--the lemonade is delicious) and all of this is all-you-can-eat. Don't make the mistake of coming if you're not too hungry, though. The desserts are great but we rarely have room for them... More

Super good deal for lunch. So full! Our 13 year old loved it! Tri-tip sirloin, mango fish and grilled pineapple were our favorites. Also, the Brazilian lemonade is a must have!

Typical Brazilian churrasco, grilled meats brought to your table on large skewers. But in addition has delicious fish and grilled vegetables. The fried white fish was out favorite. The salad bar is huge and includes sushi and breakfast items! Very friendly staff and pleasant dining experience. Great for special occasion or with out of town guests.

I would like to start by saying we have always liked Tucanos, Albuquerque. The combination of diverse food entrees and great service has always been consistent. We dined on Friday, February 24th and had reservations at 530 PM. Our family was celebrating our father in law visiting from Kentucky. We introduced him to Tucanos during his last visit and he...

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.
