Enjoy an endless variety of expertly grilled Beef, Lamb, Pork, Chicken and Seafood.

Picanha is the most popular cut of beef among Brazilians. This cut of beef comes from the Coulotte or the loin of the animal. Not traditionally found in American style restaurants.
Boneless Rib Eye Steak- Contra File
The Rib Eye needs no introduction. Robust in flavor and tender, this cut of beef is perfect for roasting in the Brazilian style churrasco.
Beef Bottom Sirloin - Churrasco Steak
Highly recommended by our Gaucho chefs, this steak is rich in flavor, well marbled and tender. The unique natural flavor of this cut of beef is complemented by our coarse Sea Salt rub.

Unmatched tenderness is the most familiar quality of the Filet. Lightly seasoned with an added hint of smoke from natural wood charcoal fire.
Full Top Sirloin - Alcatra
This majestic cut of meat is the largest cut of beef served by our Gauchos chefs. Protected by a layer of sizzling fat that infuses the meat with flavor, Alcatra is flavorful, tender and delicious.

Mouthwatering and delicious the Linguica has a robust and authentic flavor which is complemented by the hint os smoke from the grill.
Pork Ribs - Costela de Porco

Lamb - Cordeiro
Bone-in full leg of lamb drenched in wine and herbs to bring out the unique flavor of lamb.
Lamb Chops - Cordeiro
Double cut New Zealand lamb chops. Seasoned with a hint of fresh mint and cooked to perfection.
Chicken Drumsticks - Frango
Marinated with beer and brandy for a minimum of 24hrs to let the flavors get well infused in the meat, our frango has a crisp exterior served piping hot off the grill.
Grilled Shrimp
Freshly prepared and lightly seasoned, our grilled shrimp is cooked over open flames.
Indulge in one of our decadent desserts!
Papaya Cream - Creme de Papaya
This silky and light blend is the perfect pairing for the abundant menu offered at Terra Gaucha. Fresh ripe papayas and vanilla bean ice cream make a wonderful pair. Optional Cassis liqueur is added to enhance the flavors of this light delicacy.
Caramel Fudge Cheese Cake
Decadent caramel drizzled over vanilla cheese cake on top of a layer of chocolate flavored cheese cake. It has it all!
Crème Brûlée
Terra Gaucha's Creme brulee is made in house and bruleed just before it is served. This custard can appeal to the most discerning guests anywhere in the world.
Petit Gâteau
This is the perfect marriage of warm chocolate lava cake and vanilla bean ice cream. Our Petit Gateau is imported from Brazil to celebrate our sweet side.

We had a coupon and went to lunch so it was very reasonable. We didn't have drinks other than water. Sign up for emails on their site and they will send you coupons periodically.
