About Churrascos - River Oaks
"Bold and creative dishes of the Americas"
Inspired by Latin cuisine, Churrascos offers the bold flavors of the South American parilla with all its fire and passion. As the preferred caterer of the Houston Texans, Churrascos offers starters including ceviche, arepas armadas and empanadas to our signature dish: chimichurri chargrilled churrasco. Save room for a must try Tres Leches.
With a generous supply of wine pairings, Churrascos warmly transports you to an orchestra of flavor celebrating the grill, the grape, and your guests.

Churrascos - River Oaks Ratings and Reviews

One of the best, most unique, menus and choices! I used to live in Houston but moved away 8 years ago. I was on a trip back with friends and I insisted we dine there on our last evening. All agreed it was the best meal they had had in years. I just got home from Houston yesterday and immediately, after hearing they had issued a cookbook, ordered four for all of us that had the pleasure of eating there. It was as wonderful as I had remembered!
All in all our experience was just so-so ...
All in all our experience was just so-so. It was rather loud; in part due to the table of 15-20 or so that was seated immediately behind us. Bad luck I guess. But that all could have been remedied with good food and good service...it COULD have been. The service was slow and unresponsive. Literally took 20 minutes just to get water and complete drink orders. Not to mention that it took two trips to our table just to complete the drink order and another one altogether to take our food order. The food arrived but was not hot; just warm. The best thing...the mojitos. Delicious. I'd return again but Churrascos will not be on the top of my list.

Everything was excellent. The food was superb, as was the service. We sat outside on the patio and the weather was perfect. Surprisingly few people there for a Saturday night. Excellent choice for our anniversary!
Everything we ate, from the plantain chi ...
Everything we ate, from the plantain chips to the side orders tasted like it had been doused with salt. With the lone exception of the steak, everything else was barely edible. We will be avoiding Churrasco's as it has been slowly declining in quality.

Met up with two friends for our annual birthday celebration. It was restaurant week, so we took advantage of wine specials. One of us ordered the restaurant week menu and the other 2 ordered our favorites off the menu. Food portions were generous and delicious.

I have loved this restaurant since it first opened in the '80's. Have continued to think it might return to its old glory.
Alas, I have lost hope. Took friends for the red snapper..fair. No crab fingers. Vegetables tasteless.

Enjoyed dining at Churasco's River Oaks during Houston Restaurant Weeks, 2016. Food was delicious - we had the Churasco steak (bravo to whomever got my steak rare),
flan (great silky mouth-feel), the tres leches (I had to take the whole thing home because there was so much food!), complimentary grilled vegetables (I ate them all, and I don't even like vegetables), and incredibly reasonable (and good!) wine paired with the meal. I'm planning to take friends in a few weeks. Exceptional meal!

waiter was hard to understand (broken English) was seated at wrong table as they could not understand my name for reservation claim...Food was just ok for the prices charged..portions on some items were smaller than expected. Dessert was best part of meal. Waiter kept trying to up-sell on stuff we did not want.

We had the greatest time. This was a girls lunch & everything about Our lunch was perfect. We had the most helpful, attentive, gracious waiter. The food was excellent! We had 5 different entrees and all 5 were our favorite! We all said we would definitely return and it would be a great place to celebrate a special occasion.

Ok selection of food. Found the rice from the skewered beef & shrimp to be overly seasoned (overpowering). Can't remember the name of the dish but the shrimp with lemon & butter was ok. Tres leches & coconut ice cream too sweet. Quality of food was great but entrees were bland. Cucumber sangria sounded good but tasted funny...like cheap body splash. Margarita was tasty. Excellent service. Good plantain chips.

The food was amazing!! I just love their special wine dinner menus. Our waiter, Michael, took the best care of us throughout the entire meal. Claudia, the general manager, even took time to come and ensure we were doing well several times during the wonderful meal. A fantastic experience that I shared with friends. We will definitely be coming back!!

Two couples regularly meet here to celebrate a birthday for one of the four. Every time is special, and the excellent food and service at Churrasco's do much to make it so. We will continue our regular attendance on birthdays and sometimes in-between.
