The buffet-style dining experience is highly recommendable. You can just have a slice or two of each of the 10+ grilled and well seasoned meats that they offer. Their wine selection is quite good so they are good compliments to the specialities of the house. Cheers!! 🍷🍷

We took our teen son for his birthday and he ate enough to feed an army. All of the meats were amazing as were the sides. Plan to spend a good bit of money as the price runs $49/person. The salad bar is also very good and provides a variety to choose from. Kids 6 and under eat free.

We had reservations, arrived a little early but were seated immediately. Salad bar has wonderful selections, not just the ordinary offerings. Servers came by constantly with the meat selections. All perfectly done. Deserts were delicious. Great choice for any occasion, or just a special night out.

All of the food was amazing. The Meat, Salad, Dessert, & Drinks were all above my expectations. The enormous selection of extremely flavorful meats makes this one of my favorite big night out dinners.

I have eaten a bunch of Brazilian steakhouses. Estancia has amazed me every time I am in Austin. My wife will not let us pass it by. Great family, business, and date night atmosphere. The owner is always there working and checking on his guest. Truly a gem. A must try in Austin. Put it in your mouth, you'll love... More

We ate at Estancia Churrascaria on Thanksgiving night. The salad bar was good, but a little disappointing compared to other Brazilian steak houses I have eaten. Most of the meats were a little dry and under seasoned. Deserts were good, but the waiter made a mistake on our order, and he wasn't particularly nice about correcting his error. The atmosphere...

Included is an anazing salad bar. Dont fill up because its all about the meat! When you are ready for meat you have a card at your table flip... More

It seemed pricey for lunch, but when you pay the bulk of the price for a salad bar and then all-you-can-eat meats for $10 more, you are blown away by the selection. Every kind of meat was paraded before us. I tried almost everything, and I think my blood chemistry changed after that Paleo "Fix!" The wait staff was very... More

My husband took me here for my birthday. The food was very good, although the filet mignon in bacon and the lombo de porco (parmesan pork) was very very dry. I had to drink a plenty of water to get the first bite down on both. Needless to say, I didn't reorder those items. We were a little disappointed that... More
