Friendly attentive staff. Meats were very salty. My wife and I had a glass of wine each and buffet. Total bill was close to $100 without tip. I have been to a few Brazilian steakhouses where servers come around with grilled meats but when it’s busy you end up waiting for more meat. I will stick to traditional steak houses going forward.

The hostess and server were the highlight of the meal. There were 13 proteins that were to be available but only 2 to 3 servers so you really in a ideal meal time not be able to see all the protein. I only saw 5 of them. Some seasoned good and some over seasoned. The salad bar was good. If you are use to the other Brazilian restaurants you might be a little surprised that it is a low key and slower than the others.

This was our first visit and we will definitely be back. The food was delicious and the servers were great and personable. If you are in the mood for a variety of meats, then this is the place. It reminded me of O’hanas at Disney World.

It is worth the experience to eat at this restaurant but costly. I put costly for two reasons, one is that salad bar is lacking although the beets, mushrooms, and beef straganoff. They were all delicious. The meat delivered to the table was way too salty for me. If you try the ribs go for beef instead of pork because the pork was fatty. It was a good experience. The service was outstanding.

One of my new favorites! It is absolutely delicious, great service, and closer than having to drive down to Fogo de Chao ou Chamas Gaucha. My only concern is that it becomes too popular where reservations will be needed. Hope to protect this new gem for the masses - but I know that is not fair to do :-) Thursday night live music is great as well!

Our over all service was Great! The food was fantastic, the staff was great and the food wae perfect! The only set back was our seating. Given we had plenty of space we were kinda tucked in on other side of bar. I feel it was hard for the staff to see us. Once they did see us, they were amazing. I think my favorite part besides the huge selction of meats was the pineapple. It was the best thing I have ever eaten. Plus the gentle man that served it to us was such a geniune man and conversated the entire time with my husband and myself. Someone was checking on us the entire night which is something that doesnt happen often when we go out. The manager even brought us drinks. Thanks for the wonderful service and making my anniversary dinner a special one!$

Having eaten at Fogo regulary and now Chama Gaucha, my expectations were high.
The atmosphere was pleasant, clean and up scale for the building and size, but a little loud with the music.
The staff was friendly, but focused on larger crowds, often by passing those in the middle of the room seated at smaller tables.
ASSPARGUS!! I LOVE THEM!!
Sadly they were a HUGE disappointment. Small, dry, withered, woody and chewy.
Selection on the salad bar was slim.
Several mixed vegetable Mozzarella look as if it had been left at room temperature then chilled again.
Only one brick cheese offered and you had reach down into the bottom
Of the casing to reach what was left.
The bacon was a honey with red pepper, that warmed nicely on the palate, but never got hot. Sadly there we never more then 6 to 8 pieces available at a time, it's was cold and bathing in grease on the serving board.

So why did I come here? For the meats, of course!
Well, it just got worse. Every cut of beef I tried was tough and chewy! The edges on some of the meat was so over cooked it made my gums hurt in places, and I have health teeth and gums. My favorite is beef ribs. Disappointed at how meatless they were. Some of the beef had a strong gamey flavor. Enough so, I questioned it's freshness. The rest was bland with little flavor, unless you are looking for the charred flavor, you get that in Spade's. A few redeeming items were the Beef Rice and brazed Pinapple.
half way through I could see my wife's disappointment. She was ready to leave then. I finished dinner, ordered coffee. The first taste was good, but by the bottom of the cup it was leaving a bitter after taste.

A bitter taste is a good way to sum up the experience. We had heard it was good, cheaper. That it was at $81. With tip rounded to $100.
Cheaper as it was, It was not worth it to me. When the bacon wrapped chicken and brazed Pinapple are the best items at a stake house. The negatives far out weigh the positives.

Great Brazilian steak house. Over ate this last time. Chimichura sauce and caiparena (probably misspelled) we’re great. The staff seems to enjoy working there and helping. Good value for Churascaria.

WOW!!!! What a find. This is definitely one of Buford’s best kept secrets. My wife and I went there for our date night and were pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Fogo de Chao - look out! If you are in Gwinnett County there is no need to go downtown anymore!

Thank you Danny and Harold for taking such excellent care of Kim and me.

We will definitely be back!

Restaurant is nice, but in our opinion, not worth $40 for dinner since the salad bar did not have as many choices as some other places would have for the same price or only a bit higher. If they sit you next to the kitchen you can barely talk or hear over all the noise. All the meat was great except for a few choices that we requested and never arrived. We asked for passion fruit mousse for dessert and they brought us lemon flavored mousse by mistake. Great service though. Gauchos and our waitress were very courteous and attentive. I would maybe go back for lunch since it's at a cheaper rate before 4:30 pm.

Did not enjoy it. I like meat more well cooked and all the meat was bloody or really pink. Even when I specifically asked for more cooked meat it was still no where near to my liking. Chicken was disgusting and we never saw a full array of meats only 3 types of steak, nasty chicken and sausage.

Food is great if you can get enough. Trying to get a drink and waiter to help is near impossible. If they would just get more help it be a terrific place. This was our third time there in hopes they would do better each time, very disappointed as it seems to have gotten worse. This place has potential but the management needs to step up and hire more waiters and bartenders to help with drinks and getting food out.
