This is not a particularly good attempt at the formulaic Brazilian churasco steak restaurant. Very mediocre food and amateur service. Cheap cuts of meat with way too much salt. Frenetic atmosphere with too many birthday celebrations disturbing efforts to converse. Not going back.

This restaurant was suggested to us from the hotel we were staying at next door. The food was amazing with so many dishes to pick from. They were constantly coming by our table with different meats for us to try.

This was our first time at a Brazilian restaurant. We lived it. We tried just about all of the meat offered after having some salads from the salad bar. It is not inexpensive but was still a good value.

Tucanos is an experiential dining, family-friendly destination that combines the unique serving style of the traditional Brazilian grilling, referred to as "churrasco" (shoe-HAS-ko) - an exhibition-style meal surrounded by flames and colors, with the flair and festivity of the beaches of Rio de Janeiro. The cuisine features specially seasoned or marinated meats and vegetables (nearly 20 varieties), grilled and then served hot off the skewers at each table until the guest's appetite is fully gratified. Guests will find one-of-a-kind touches at the restaurant abound, including the color-coded, Tucanos Cue. Placing the Tucanos cue green side up lets the entree servers know that guests would like the parade of seasoned meats, vegetables and fresh pineapple brought to the table. Expertly trained meat servers then slice sizzling portions off skewers directly onto diners' plates. Tucanos also offers an abundant and award-winning Salad Festival, featuring more than 70 items.
