Come to Tucanos Brazilian Grill, where a dining experience rich in flavor and heritage awaits you. The Brazilian tradition of grilling, or CHURRASCO (shoe-HAS-ko), is a fusion of South American and European cultures. From its birth in the Pampas or grasslands of Brazil, to the sparkling beaches of Rio de Janeiro, Tucanos now extends this festive tradition to you. At Tucanos, meats and vegetables are carefully selected to ensure that only the freshest cuisine is served. Our meats are tastefully seasoned and cooked on skewers over open-flame grills. The skewers are then brought to your table where sizzling portions are sliced onto your plate. You may choose as many different flavors and cuts as you like.
Just had an Email post from a friend who used to proclaim Tucanos as her favorite restaurant . Not so after tonight ! She went in to celebrate her birthday and left in tears! She said her waiter was VERY RUDE ! She and her family went to the Tucanos in Orem. She is very highly thought of and a lot of her friends on FaceBook are angry that she would be treated so badly.
first time my friend Jon took me there I fall in love with the food, the service was good. i love the location and i been back few more times. even with my 4 little children. they love it and my 9 year old wants me to celebrate his birthday there from now on! I l*ove it so much I am going there for lunch this S*aturday Again! Thanks, V.
Chuckee Cheese of Meat
The Boise location was an overindulgent mess. No relief from the marauding rug rats even at the bar. Poor execution of the theme, very mormony clientelle. Huge families of toddlers and younger made the otherwise tasty looking salad bar remind me of a petri dish.
My advice: Lighten up on the over done, pretentious theme. Supply an area where adults can enjoy a meal. Pay a little more attention to the quality of the meat.
Fantastic salad bar! Outstanding selection of meats, poultry, seafood and even pineapple cooked to perfection!! Service with a smile, and a desire to exceed one's expectations!!! We sure wish that they'd open a Tucanos in Madison or Milwaukee, WI, or even Chicago, IL; where we know without a doubt that it would be an enormous hit. In the meantime we're planning our next visit to Tucanos Provo.
garlic beef and the turkey rolls are the best. sausage is a close third...if you have room. skip the chicken wings and fish...go for the meat!!! don't even mess with the salad bar...it's just unnessessarry filler.
we came on a business dinner w/25 people and I think we cleared them out!!! good stuff here.
Yes, this place is a bit pricey, but it's all you can eat! I was really impressed with the food bar and the services was notably wonderful. Not only did we have more meat coming around than we could keep up with, our server was constantly checking on us. I had a wonderful time! I agree that the grilled pineapple is good and my friend said the lemonade was wonderful too!
Tucanos' salad bar is quite extensive, and quite good. I recommend it.
However, the meat (the reason you go to a place like this) is sub-par. A real churrasco takes quite some time to prepare. The meat is slowly roasted on skewers over live coals, with a coating of coarse salt, and occasional spritzes of water on the outside. This perfectly seasons the meat, locking in the moisture. After it is cooked, the salt is literally beaten off the outside of the meat with the backside of a knife. You can eat thick or thin slices of it, depending on how rare you want your piece.
Granted, a restaurant may not be able to take the time to do all of that, but Tucanos takes too many shortcuts.
1. They use fine-grained salt, which is too quickly absorbed into the meat. The remainder of it crystallizes on the seared outer layer.
2. They sear the meat instead of slowly (and thoroughly) cooking it. The effect is that there is only a quarter of an inch of cooked meat on the outside. It's so dry and full of salt that it's practically jerky. After two slices into a piece, the server is either obliged to return for a newly charred piece, or the patron is obliged to gnaw on a piece of undercooked meat.
3. The tiny morsels of overly salty meat tend to suck all the water out of your body, so you drink more. Which is (I assume) exactly the point. All the salt leaves your tongue burning for an hour afterward.
Over all, it's not a bad place. But if you're looking for the real experience, go to the Braza Grill.
There is meat you can eat that doesn't smell like stinky feet, for the meat at Tucanos is really super neat.
Tucanos is a Brazilian feastival for the tastebuds. The servers carry extremely sharp knives in and amongst the tables and patrons, which appeals to my sense of danger quite a bit, and unload generously seasoned bovine & poltry in a never ending succession of slices right from the spit.
So, don't forget your VISA card, because you can take a hit in the wallet if you venture unprepared, but it is so very worth the expense.
