Wow wow wow! Guacho really knows how to fill you up with there all-you-can-eat hot & cold salad bar and the never ending parade of carnivorous tempations. Well worth the money! Gauchos offered a variety of chicken, pork, beef, lamb and sausages cooked in several succulent ways. They will continue to bring you food right to your table until you... More

Loved it ! As well as watching the patrons get their meat on. I am definitely a light weight as I watched customer get down. Just keeps coming. Best bang for the buck is Lunch. Thinking of trying the wild game night on the weekend

Service was excellent. Our server explained all the meat and wine choices and was very prompt and friendly. Salads and warm dishes were not as good as Minas but were better than Pampas. Meats were very good overall, tender and flavorful. Meat was better than Minas but not as good as Pampas. We shared the pineapple and coconut icecream dessert... More

Description
Gaucho Brazilian Barbecue is located conveniently on busy Macleod Trail. Gaucho means ~ cowboy ~ and refers to our chef and owner Edmilson Rodrigues. Ede comes from the land of the Gaucho in the south of Brazil and has spent a lifetime introducing his food and culture to his guests. In our restaurant we feature a style of dining made famous in Brazil called, 'Rodizio'. Rodizio dining is like nothing you’ve tried before. To do it properly, budget an evening – or at least a few hours – and come hungry! Your barbecue chef of the evening will come around with massive churrasco-style skewers, each with a tender cut-of-the-day. Meat will be sliced straight to your plate, and it won’t stop till your table turns its card over to display the red side. To compliment your barbecue we feature hot and cold side dishes on our side bar. Our side bar is always changing to assure that our food is fresh and in season. Staples on the side bar include feijoada, the national dish of Brazil and bocconcini cheese made fresh weekly by local craftsmen. We recommend you try one of our traditional cocktails to 'open your stomach'- as Brazilians say! Remember to leave room for dessert like our traditional milk flan or the famous Barbecue Pineapple served on coconut ice cream and topped with guava sauce- we call it the 'Crowned King'! Gaucho has something for everyone! Come taste the experience!
