Chama Gaucha is an upscale Brazilian, rodizio-style steakhouse chain that only has four locations in a few cities: Chicago, San Antonio, Atlanta and Houston. The Houston location is on Westheimer just outside the Galleria area. The well-appointed restaurant is known for its attention to service and for its fresh, high-quality salad bar and meats. The salad bar offers a selection of more than 30 fresh fruits, vegetables, salads, charcuterie, cheese and hot items. From the grill, there are 15 types of meat, including the popular picanha, or rump cap, as well as top sirloin, rib eye, beef ribs, lamb chops and more.
