Love this place, food is always excellent, and the good news is, there is allot of it. Work in sales - and this place is always a hit with customer dinners. Buffet area offers tons of choices, and the meats never disappoint.

It is a very unique dining experience. It's packed, noisy, and always busy. So what's the appeal? They have a salad/hot bar that exceeds more expectations than I have. Typical salad fare PLUS salads PLUS sushi PLUS fruits PLUS peel and eat shrimp PLUS a...More

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.
