I love meat and I love salad and they have many great choices. If you fill up on the salad bar with fresh and marinated veggies, meats and cheeses you won't have enough room to try all their selection of meats. You have a card...More

Chama Gaucha is mostly a buffet affair in which the style is Brazilian churrasqueria: waiters buzzling around you with sizzling grilled cuts of meat. Their service is very good but sometimes there are delay in your sides or getting another bottle of wine. Their wine...More

We had an excellent family lunch. The atmosphere was comfortable and we will go there soon. Despite the female restroom being remodeled forcing the males go to go to an outside portable restroom, it was surprisingly comfortable- air conditioning, pleasant aroma, etc.

It is not inexpensive: $40+ for all you can eat plus wine at ~$10/glass ... but it is so worth it for a special celebration or a 19 year old male teen who can easily eat his way to $40 in meat!! smile!

At Chama Gaucha we believe a quality experience is based on a combination of prime ingredients and gracious service. Our 12 cuts of meat and garden fresh salad bar is hand selected daily to ensure perfection to your plate. Our meats are always 100% USDA Prime, aged a minimum of 45 days and seasoned to enhance the natural flavors and unique complexity of each cut of beef, lamb, pork or chicken. Paired with an authentic cocktail or world renown vintage will truly deliver an unforgettable experience. Our staff takes great pride in showcasing the essence of Brazilian hospitality with warm friendly service that will leave you feeling like part of the family. It’s passion you can taste!
