    Your steak won’t be served to you lying flat on a plate. It will be served quite hot, very adeptly seasoned, by a swift-moving gaucho (trained Brazilian chef), carrying it vertically on a large skewer. They’ll slice it and you’ll grab each slice with a pair of nifty little tongs provided at your place setting. The service and carving of the meats are controlled by each individual guest with a red and green sided card. The green side indicates that you are ready and waiting on meats. When you’ve reached your limit, turn the red side up. Have small tastes at first; there are many kinds of meat (12 in total). These include bacon-wrapped filet, marinated chicken drumsticks, lamb, pork and beef ribs, and the house specialty, Picanha, or the prime cut of sirloin. For our vegetarian guests, we do offer a bountiful salad bar with over 30 different items. Come experience the essence of Southern Brazil right here at Chama Gaucha.

    Their cheese bread, a trademark appetizer from Brazil, is one of the best I've ever had. The place is brand new and very elegant. I had beef, pork and chicken and all tasted so good and were very tender. I'm really glad to have found this restaurant, certainly the best in his category.Vinicius M. , Atlanta
    For the past three years now, when I visit my sister here in San Antonio, she has treated me to lunch at your wonderful restaurant, and each year it has been a highlight of my trip. The meats are always juicy, tender, and flavorful. The service is outstanding, and the personal attention by your staff makes one feel very special. It would be great if we had a restaurant like Chama Gaucha in Montana, but somehow I don't think it would be quite the same as the one I enjoy in San Antonio. Virginia Eliseo, San Antonio
    I wanted to tell you that my retirement party held today was PERFECT. Your restaurant was superb. The food was great, the staff was phenomenal and the room was exceptional. Many, many thanks!Barbara Sprott, Houston
    We had an AMAZING dinner at Chama Gaucha in Downers Grove. It is a Brazillian Steakhouses where they feed you all the meat you can eat from a lot of skewers. Lamb, pork, steak, and chicken…. It was unbelievable ….Great staff… table side service…. Amazing food… side dishes were wonderful….. Excellent atmosphere and the company were pretty great too… Recommend this wonderful place highly… to everyone! Great salad bar too!Tonya M., Chicago
