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...More

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...More

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...More

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...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...More

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...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.
