Tucanos Brazilian Grill

Suite 2001, Sugar Land
The restaurant was clean and quiet, the manager very cordial and accommodating. The menu described the churascaria style meats, the elaborate salad bar, dessert and beverage options. The full churascaria experience includes salad bar and meats; you can choose the salad bar only for a lesser cost.
A sampling of the salad bar items were fried bananas, tortellini salad (one of my favorites), Brazilian coleslaw, sushi, lobster bisque, beef stroganoff, three different pasta sauces, three different pastas for the sauces, Brazilian collard greens, garlic mashed potatoes, fresh rolls, numerous prepared salads and build your own tossed salads, including quail eggs. The churascaria style meats served were beef, pork, chicken and turkey. You can pay extra if you want shrimp. The sirloin was cooked according to preferred doneness but the chicken and turkey were slightly overcooked and dry. The other meats were very juicy and delectable, all seasoned differently offering a variety of pleasing flavor surprises. A nice variety of generously served desserts were offered for an additional cost. The Death By Chocolate cake, split three ways was big enough for all to have a generous portions. As the name suggests, it was to die for!
The service was excellent. It was noticeable how quickly the meat servers dashed from kitchen to table once a summoning green peg was turned. The intent was no doubt to get the meat to the tables quickly before it cooled off.
As compared to other Churascaria restaurants, this one is one of the least expensive by a large margin ($24.99) and equally as good and abundant as the more expensive restaurants. The experience was festive, inviting, and very satisfying.
