Delicious doesn't quite give this place its due, it's even better than that! Everything there is a real treat, from the extraordinary salad bar to the magnificent meats they offer, it's all wonderful. Be sure to show up hungry, you'll be glad you did!

Some in our party had eaten at a good many churrascarias, so their opinion is reflected in this review. Firstly the setting, which is traditional-recreated, with some interesting paintings. The tables are of a good size - important with this style of food - and with enough room between them for the skewer-and-knife-wielding servers to swing by. The salad bar... More

My wife and I were invited to a retirement party held at Estancia's near the Arboretum in Austin. The atmosphere was very festive and indicative of Brazil. The self serve salad bar was exceptional. There was much to chose from and everything was fresh and crisp. You are given a small disk at the table which you use to indicate... More

A new colleague joined my team, and I was really hungry for dinner, so we headed to Estancia a mile or so from our hotel. I'm used to Fogo and Texas de Brasil, and while this restaurant had the polish of those two, it felt local. Hard to say anything unique about the meal itself--an overwhelming salad bar that you...

Being Father's day, I got to pick which restaurant our family got to visit. We had been here before, but we limit our visits due to it being such a decadent and indulgent feast. We also had my 3 year old granddaughter, so we had some concerns as to boredom limitations. Our server, Marty, put us at immediate ease by... More
