Brazilian Steakhouse
The plains of Southern Brazil are filled with grazing cattle enjoying the vast pastures. These cattle are the source for the famous and centuries old Brazilian “Churrasco” barbecues. It was at these gatherings where Brazilian cowboys or “gauchos” would prepare large pieces of meat and slowly cook them over open flame pits. Our traditional gaucho chefs still follow these traditions to preserve the flavors of each cut of meat.

Guest eating inside the restaurant wouldn’t wear masks while going to the rest room and or the salad bar. Also, at the salad bar instead of having en employees serve the salad. Everyone inside was able to use the salad tongs to serve their own food. I think they can improve on the COVID restrictions.

Service was excellent on a Wednesday evening. Ordered two drinks which were somewhat weak, one tasted like pure lime juice. All meats were good but maybe not as well seasoned as other similar restaurants in the Houston area.

We were not impressed. The service was very slow and we had to ask several times for our drinks as they forgot to bring them, we waited so long for certain items of food that we gave up and decided to end our dinner early. When it was time for the bill, several employees passed by us without even a glance in our direction and once again had to wait about 10 minutes for someone to come by for us to flag down for our bill. Food was very undercooked, Bisque was very watery, and overall it was just a very bad dining experience. I think we will just keep going to Chamagaucha where everything has always been Top Notch Service.

We wanted to try this place since it was close to our home. We were highly disappointed with the sliver of meat we would get and had to keep asking for them to bring more food. But believe me they were quick to ask if I wanted more cocktails but when the servers would come by with the meat selections I would ask for an additional piece of meat they would tell me that they have to go and get more meat and then go off to another table. It got to the point I was taking rare meat just so I could get what I paid for. The salad bar had a wide variety selection of food which was great, but for the same price I will go back to my other Brazilian restaurants where I get more food, servers come by more without having to keep asking and better service. We went to celebrate our anniversary and left very disappointed that we order a cake to go and went home.

We are big fans of Brazilian all you can eat, we decided to try Gauchos Do Sul for the first time the other night with our three kids (5,10,14). Throughly satisfied with all the cuts of meat, salad bar and desserts. Needless to say we came we ate our fill and left happy and repeat customers

The service as this establishment was outstanding with an incredible level of detail and effort. Our needs were not only met but anticipated, without it being invasive. Food was also exceptional, high quality cuts of meat and lots of variety in the salad bar, with many of my favorites featured that I would expect from a Brazilian restaurant.

Decided to go out on New Year’s Eve for dinner. Restaurant was okay. I have had better Brazilian restaurants. Not the best restaurant to go to for COVID reasons. They have a buffet with a box of gloves which half of the people wore gloves. Watched people’s, not intentionally, clothing touch the food as they served themselves.

Also, the tradition of this type restaurant brings different kind of meats to your table. Everyone of them placed the meat not 12” from my face. I watched this from table to table. So I said not COVID safe recommend.

This was our annual tradition and it was subpar at best. Slow service, not much variety of meats, way way undercooked Picana which is their house specialty. No ribeye, garlic steak, sausages and several other meat choices were missing. Service took so long that you were full very fast.......In addition, no lobster in the lobster bisque. Grilled shrimp was was too heavy with garlic.

I ate literally 6 bites of meat the entire night!! My bill with tip was over $450 and I could have grilled a ribeye at home and been more satisfied.

One positive - salad bar! Thank goodness is was good because that was the only thing worth paying for!

Restaurant was over crowded social distancing was not being maintained.
Everyone getting food from the salad bar didn't use gloves that were provided and people didn't worry about getting close.
The service and staff were very good.

The food was amazing. The service was eh. Half of my guests got served, while the other half watched. The servers were really hard to hear even though the restaurant wasn’t loud, and they for some reason kept ignoring half of my guests. Which was really frustrating.

Family time gets harder to arrange when the kids are busy adults. But, an invitation to dine at Gauchos Do Sul always encourages the kids to interrupt their busy schedules to spend an evening with mom and dad for a delicious dinner.

We were greeted by friendly familiar smiles and quickly seated at our table. The Caipirinhas were exceptionally delicious; as was the suggested Malbec wine. The food bar was filled with fresh veggies, cheeses, and treats. The meat servers brought perfectly cooked lamb, beef, chicken, pork, shrimp, and of course roasted pineapple with cinnamon. The new dessert choices capped the evening meal with sweet delicious bunt cakes and ice cream with Brazilian coffee and expresso.

Gauchos offers the perfect ambiance for conversation and quiet laughter; even with our family crowd. We will be back soon; the sooner the better!

Took a special granddaughter for a late birthday celebration, and she loved it, but then she is a meat-eater extraordinaire! Plus, she tried several new things. She also commented on how nice the restaurant was and how attentive the waiters were. We would go back in a heartbeat.

This has become our #1 go-to spot in Vintage. The food, service, variety, and quality are unmatched in the area. If you have never visited, I highly recommend you change that ASAP. Well worth the visit and you will surely be enlightened with a fine dining experience. P.S. Try one of their new craft cocktails. Yummy.

Overall, a good experience and I would be very pleased to dine with Gauchos do Sul again. I requested a quieter table location for this business dinner, and the host accommodated accordingly. The salad bar was fresh, nicely presented, self-serve and was open to mask-wearing guests to visit at any time - good spacing between tables and no congestion of people anywhere at all (unlike Fogo do Chao where the tables are crammed together, they insist on each guest wearing their mask and being accompanied individually to the Market table by a server, and, the traffic around the salad bar was like Times Square at rush hour). The only slight downsides at GdS were:
a) the Lobster Bisque was somewhat thin, rather than rich and delicious as one should expect, and
b) I spent most of Black Friday on a chat, e-mails and calls with the restaurant to order a gift card for this meal - they do not process your payment over the phone or on-line - after a mid-morning "chat" to find out how to order, I had to wait until the restaurant opened at 4pm to call them to request a payment authorization form via e-mail, call and e-mail them again to make sure they had the correct e-mail address, print the form, fill it out by hand and sign it, scan it, then send back to them via e-mail. One might imagine an on-line ordering system would not be too difficult or costly to implement ?
Otherwise, the service was really very good indeed and the Maitre D' was fun !!

Brazilian churrasco is the best. The meat was tender and had a delicious and unique flavor. Gauchos do Sul does a good justice to brazilian churrasco. The caipirinha was delicious too! The tables were spaced out and not a lot of people, which I recommend to reservations to secure a spot on busier days. We had tres leches for dessert and it was one of the best I ever had.

We celebrated our Thanksgiving for the 3rd year here. As always the staff was friendly, and accommodating. The salad bar, my favorite part, and the meat were perfection. Then we got to the dessert course, they had “thanksgiving themed” dessert for the first time this year and a paired down regular dessert menu from years before. I believe I am the only person in the world that doesn’t like pumpkin everything so I asked for plain cheesecake. They accidentally brought out creme brûlée but corrected the mistake and brought out the plain cheesecake which was

Every one at some point in their lives deserves to be treated over the top. Gauchos do Sul gives such treatment. My wife and I visit here at least twice a year. Let’s face it, exceptional treatment comes at a price, but well worth it just the same. If I were a rich man I would eat here more often.

I don’t normally go out on Thanksgiving but this experience changed my mind. My friend and I were absolutely delighted with food choices, service, the extra Thanksgiving food items. Those were very tasty. Plus the regular menu. I got to have everything I would have ever wanted at a feast. Social distancing was observed. This is probably going to become a holiday favorite. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone. I want to Thank them for the best Holiday experience I have had in years.
