Not bad. But no change for years. All the protein taste the same after a while. And the cost is high for little scrap portions they cut you. 25.00 a plate is pricy for the food they give you. But the environment is great. Service...More

Wife ate here one night while on a business trip. She really enjoyed the different kinds of meets that are freshly carved per serving. She also said that Tucanos has an awesome salad.

True to the Brazilian style and flavor. Very good. Great salad bar and variety of meats. A fun way to have meats served.

We love the salad bar here. We are vegetarian, and we go to a steak house for the salad. Weird, huh? Nope. There is plenty to eat, and it is EXCELLENT. They have soups, potatoes and pasta as well on the salad bar. Trust me....More

The food is excellent, the salad bar is out of this world, and it is a fun experience! I keep coming back whenever I'm in the area.

I have only been to Tucanos a couple of times. It is a nice place to eat dinner, but you want to make sure you bring your wallet. The food has always been great, and so is the atmosphere, but you really need to plan...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.
