If you’ve ever been to the country of Brazil or a Brazilian steakhouse, then you know that meat is a huge part of the meal. At a traditional Brazilian steakhouse, the meat is usually served on large skewers that are carried around by waiters. Depending upon the type of meat you want, the waiter will efficiently slice it onto your plate. A Brazilian tradition that makes for good eating, Chama Gaucha is a Brazilian steakhouse that has taken fine dining to the next level.

It’s All in a Name

The word “chama” means “flame,” in Portuguese, referring to passion of the traditional gauchos, or Brazilian cowboys, as well as the way that meat is typically cooked. Cooking meat over charcoal grills that perfectly capture that flame-cooked taste, you’ll have a hard time saying no to this restaurant.

All You Can Eat

While this restaurant isn’t technically a buffet, there are some all you can eat options, such as the meat selection. Here’s how the meat selection works: your table is given a card, one side red, one side green. When the card is turned to the green side, it means you’re hungry, and the waiters carrying the meat will come over and serve you. When the card’s red, it means you’re eating or taking a break. Flip the card green again, and they’ll be right there. You can eat as much as you want, so there’s no reason to rush it. Also, the meat selection comes with a trip to the salad bar, which has some delicious options, such as lobster bisque. Meats from the meat selection include filet mignon, picanha (prime cut of sirloin), rib eye, and more.

Scrumptious Sides

In addition to the salad bar, your table will receive some yummy side dishes to accompany all that meat. For example, you’ll get a cheese bread bowl that’s constantly filled, delicious mashed potatoes, grilled plantains, and fried polenta. All are scrumptious, and all are replaced is a timely manner to ensure that they’re always fresh and warm.

Perfectly Priced

While Chama Gaucha would be overly priced if it wasn’t all you can eat, the fact that you’re getting as much meat as you want for a fixed price is pretty incredible. Dinner is $44.50 per person ($21.50 if you’re just doing the salad bar–but why??), and lunch is $28.50 per person. Kids eat for half price under the age of 10, and kids under the age of 5 eat for free. If you have room for dessert, they’re between $5.50 and $7.50. Wines start at $18 a bottle, but some are priced around $300!

Valet or Your Way

There’s a valet service here, and while you’re welcome to try finding parking on your own, it may be impossible. To save yourself the hassle, just do the valet. It only adds to the fancy and divine experience you’re about to have.
